Friday night I met friends from high school, Jill and Brooke, out at Cafe Rousseau for drinks. I always try and support "local" establishments, so I suggested we meet here. Unfortunately, the bartender had not a clue what she was doing and wasn't overly concerned with customer service, so I doubt it will be come a place to go for Brooke and Jill. Visiting with Brooke and Jill was so much fun. We ended up planning a trip to ambush Natalie, who has all but disappeared off the face of the earth since she met the man of her dreams, and do a girls night in the City. I hope it comes to fruition.
So, about a month before Haley was born, Hillary Bell asked me to join the Catholic Charities Guild. I did, of course, and the preceded to be the worst guild member in history because I was so busy with Miss Haley. I decided to try and make up for that this Saturday by helping with the set up of our annual fundraiser, Harvest of Hope. I really do love setting up for parties and I had such fun getting to know some of the other members. We attended the event that night and had such a fantastic time. The Catholic community in Fresno is just wonderful and I am so looking forward to being more involved this year in the Guild. I didn't remember to take a picture of the event, which is unfortunate, because everything looked so good!
Early Sunday our little family made the drive up to the Bay for my monthly hair appointment. It always gives us a good excuse to see Christopher's family. This time Brian and Sarah drove out from SF and we had a fantastic birthday celebration (Sarah, Brian & myself are all September birthdays) at Il Fornaio. We sat on the patio, drank champagne and visited. What a fun way to spend an afternoon!

The girls decided to do a bit of shopping while the boys headed back to the bar to watch football. Kathleen and Mike bought Haley the most adorable fabric book from one of the street vendors. She hasn't let go of it since she received it! We headed home a happy, full and sleepy bunch!

My cousin Brooke is expecting her second little boy any day now. My mom and I made a quick stop off yesterday evening to pick up some burp cloths and visit. I just know Vincent is going to arrive while we're in FL and I'm depressed about it. I told her to try to push really hard today to get things going!
I hope everyone had a great weekend and I can't wait to update on FL and Brooke upon our return!
