Girl's Day

Olivia and I had a girl's day on Thursday. She started "girl time" a long while ago. We talk about girl stuff or she tries on all her dresses, we paint nails, fix hair or look through my jewelry box.
We invited my knitting friend Ashely to join us, just three girls out for the day. Ate lunch at Tumbleweed and went to see the move Kitt Kitteridge- An American Girl. The movie was good, Olivia really enjoyed it. There are some good actors in it too. Stanley Tucci, Chris O'donnell and Joan Cusack were very entertaining. It was a little bleak at times, the movie is set in the 40's and the depression was in full swing and boy were the children mean to each other. But I guess not much has changed.
After the movie we went to a near by used book store and she got two American Girl books and I got the Yarn Harlot's At Knits End, meditations for women knit too much. Knitting and spinning are just not enough for Ashley so she found herself a book on soapmaking.
Then we went to Grater's Ice Cream. We all had a great time.


  1. Time spent well with a daughter is the best time of all.

    Thank you for the nudge and the reminder. I'm going to go invite mine out to lunch for next week now. We've been meaning to do that before she flies back to school--time's a-wastin'.

  2. Sounds like a fun day was had by all.

  3. Sounds like a great day! Husband and I have been meaning to find that Graeter's!

  4. It was great fun. I live with a boy who doesn't always understand the girlie stuff, so a day with "the girls" was a welcomed reprieve. Livi has excellent taste in movies!

  5. Spend all the time you can with her. She will grow up and (maybe) move away too soon.


Hi,it's nice to hear from you.
Come back soon!
