Yesterday was quite a busy day! We're trying to tie up some loose ends and get the house ready for us to leave on Sunday. We spent part of the day at Macy's because Tif had a gift card she wanted us all to spend. The store is having some deep discounts and on top of that, if you were wearing red, they give you another 20% off! How can they do that? Tif bought a beautiful $60.00 sweater that was 75% off and then they took off another 20% because I was wearing my red sweatshirt. I don't know how they can keep doing these kinds of sales and still stay afloat. Wow!
Last night we were invited to a friend's home for dinner. Jiro is a (Canadian) prof at Northwestern and his wife, Ida (from Albania). I love having friends from different countries. It's always very interesting to get a different perspective on everything. Their adorable daughter Izzie, is a buddy of KC. It was great to see them enjoying Elmo together. I'm still trying to figure out this incredible Elmo fascination.
Today, we had lunch with our favorite Friday Lunch companions. We used to always have Friday lunches with Daisy (from Venezuela) and Alan at the cheapest restaurant we could find. That was our goal. Cheapest and Tastiest! It was our turn to pick this week. We decided on Joy Yee's. Not the cheapest... but a popular place near the Northwestern campus. Pad Thai was so so. My Vietnamese vermicelli egg roll salad dish was better.
