Met up with Kip, Teri and Michele at the Tampa International Airport around 8:30 Friday morning and we headed up and away towards N.Carolina. Jill has asked several of us to join her for this weekend as a thank you for picking her up, giving her places to stay and trips back to the airport so she could attend HIlltop and KnKcrops in Florida. No thanks were necessary but we are sure enjoying our stay. We are joined today by Gerri-ann, Barb and Sonia.
We've had several surprises through out our day : Janet at the airport, flower bouquets for each of us and the hot pink stretch limo to fetch and carry us through the day. Our first stop was Archivers in Cary, N.C., where I dropped a couple of bucks and for lunch we dined at Ted's known for the buffalo burger. Janet and I shared one and some yummy veggies. We also had a chance to shop at Swoozies which I loved. We chatted away the afternoon and went out to supper to a darling little local place called Mama Mia's. The owner kissed our hands when we entered, gave us a tour of the backscenes and entertained us throughout the meal, which was wonderful.
Having coffee now with Jill and waiting for the rest of the crew to awaken.
Have a great day!
