Crazy Eskie Ladies

I decided to go to the Bay Area Eskie meetup hosted by some friends on the Eskie Board. Because of rain, many of the people who planned to come had to cancel. In all, it ended up a small group: the hostess Jenny (and her husband), Leslie, Elise, and me.

Jenny's two dogs were adorable.
Although this little girl was quite the barker!
Leslie brought a Red Ribbon purple yam and coconut cake. I was delighted to find out that they have a location in Tempe!

Elise made these ribbon necklaces for Comet and BLU, and Liz (who couldn't attend) provided gift bags containing lint brushes, rope toys, and portable water dishes. Overall, it was a very fun afternoon, even if it was cold, windy, and raining.

I spent the next day with my friends Christine and Mark. We originally planned to go to the California Academy of Sciences, but since it was newly opened, the line was crazy. We didn't want to see the exhibits 5 people deep, so ditched those plans and headed to ArtSpan. Some of the art was interesting, some disturbing, and some .... well.... I just didn't "get it". All of it was out of my budget.
