Every Saturday morning, our NAMI friends meet at the Bagel Boat to talk, laugh, and eat bagels, ice cream, milkshakes, and cinnamon rolls. Oh yeah, and have coffee, too 🙂
Today Dan and Betsey came with their son Tom. Kakhi came for the first time! And of course I was there, too. Brad has worn himself out doing too much stuff over the last few days, so he stayed home to sleep.
Bagel Boat is in an old bank, so they have offices with couches in them for people to hang around in and chat. Our favorite room has a big couch that Tommy loves to lay on. Today I got a pic of Hestia on top of Tommy on top of the couch!
We had a great time, though we missed CJ and Melissa due to car trouble 🙁 We got a person to take a picture of all of us squished together on the big couch. I wanted to try a selfie, but with that many people, I would have needed a selfie stick!
Tom is like a big kid, and one of the things he enjoys doing is making strange sounds or blowing air at Hestia and seeing if she reacts. By now she’s come to expect and maybe even look forward to that! So we got a couple pictures of Tommy and Hestia interacting across the room from each other.
After Bagel Boat, Kakhi and I went to a thrift shop close by the Bagel Boat. It was really crowded because apparently it is only open 3 days a week, and only until 2PM! We had fun looking around and trying things on, and I ended up with a new dress. It is a blue dress, with several shades of blue mixing together on it. It is cotton, so it is very comfy!
The dressing room was small but the wait was long, so Kakhi and I shared a dressing room to try stuff on. This left nowhere for Hestia to be safe except on the bench! So on the bench she went, and I got a great picture of her in front of the blue dress I bought.
When I got home, Brad took a picture of me in my new dress. Now I just need to wash it a few times, as it smells like laundry products.
Here are all the pictures I took, there are only 7 there, so it won’t take a long time. Enjoy!
Ah, this is the first time I have actually SEEN your Bagel Boat adventure!!! Fun!
It is a lot of fun!
Love the new dress! Our thrift shop had 50% off on the 4th but I wasn’t feeling well so I couldn’t get out of bed to go. I’m looking forward to their next sale, hopefully soon.
Thanks! I hope they have a sale soon!
Awesome on having a fabtastic Saturday!! You.look.mahvalous. Thrift stores absolutely rule, and I’ve also begun using the online ones like swap.com and thredup.com with great success. Hestia, Hestia, you ARE the life of the party <3
Thank you! Hestia thinks she is the most interesting thing in any room LOL!
Egads, Tao does too. he and Hestia so need to be friends and hold an entertainment fundraiser for PDSP lolol!! 😀
Oh that would be fun!
You always find the cutest dresses. You could be a stylist and call your business “Style on the cheap” or something along those lines. 🙂
Anyway It is so great that you get out with friends. I’m not quite there but I think my problem is I don’t have the right kind of friends near by. My PSDP friends are all so far from me.
I’m loving your blog. I also like that you do them often but keep them short. Longer reading periods are hard for me. My concentration is very bad.
Thank you! I don’t know how I luck on all these dresses! Maybe no one else wears dresses so I can find good ones? Yes, having PSDP friends nearby is totally different than having normies as friends. I just got back from visiting Lizzy with Kitten (going through pics still) and it was awesome. Thank you also for commenting! I am so excited to get comments on my blog posts! It’s like a little present in my email!
These photos are amazing! love your blog!!!
Awesome dress Veronica ! You always find the cute ones ! I have been thinking about the NAMI org. so thanks for sharing your experiences !
I love NAMI! It is a great organization. I highly recommend going to their support groups.
