Got Things Done Kind Of Weekend

For some reason Blogger won't let me upload pictures from a file.  So I had to put them on Picassa to do this post.  I thought it would have been working by now but evidently not, hence not posting the last couple of mornings. 
Last Friday night Kevin and I had chinese take out.  After a crazy day, Kevin being sick and a vet appointment, it was highly necessary.
Saturday I did some early morning errands (my fav!) then Mills and I went to meet my friend Kim and her son Jack at Freedom Park.  Love them!!!  We had the best time catching up, playing and walking!
Seriously is Jack not the cutest lil boy ever?!
Then we stopped by my friends Fran and Matt's house to let Mills play with their pooch Doo Jr.  Mills is on the right in the picture below.  He thinks he can hang with the big dogs haha!  They ran and played until their lil hearts were content and their paws were MUDDY!
Mills and I zipped home to check on sicky Kevin.  I got ready to go out with our old Avenue neighbors.  We went to Hickory Tavern.  Kevin totally took and picked me up.  We had a drink at the wine bar next door after dinner.  I love these friends of ours.  They are oldies and goodies!  And we miss seeing them every day, immensely.
Sunday I got a zillion things done around the house.  I wanted to do some printables for Valentines Day so one of my Twitter friends told me about Pinterest printables.  Ladies I've lead a sheltered life.  I present to you, my first printables EVER:
That evening, Kevin asked if I wanted to go to the best place on earth for French Onion soup - Rippingtons!  I said of course!  We each had that and a salad.  SO good! 
I prepared a little more for a dinner party we are having this Saturday night.  I put together some fun favors and cleaned a bit.  And ordered two tablecloths because I don't have any (yet!) and 12 placemats (I have plenty of these but they aren't appropriate for the theme I am going for).  Lordy b, I need to get with the program...these were just things I did not have room to store in my condo!  Mom is sending me one of her grandmother's tablecloths so I'm excited to use that too! 
I'm out of town most of this week, living in the Charlotte airport going back and forth and romping around numerous states.  I miss Mills (and Kevin of course!) SO much!

Ok mine is doing that too and saw LuLu tweeted about it too. I don't have Picassa so not sure how to go about posting either. WTF blogger?!

I must live a sheltered life too because I have never heard of Rippington's. Where is it? I tried to pull up the menu but can't get it to come up. I love your taste in restaurants so I am sure it is good.
