I had this wonderful post all written up for y'all yesterday then stupid blogger wouldn't load it. So sorry about seeming so quiet. And unfortuately, you can't assume that just because I am quiet that I am getting loads done. I haven't done a thing in days! But this morning I am making beads... no ifs ands or buts about it. So until tomorrow enjoy what I wrote yesterday.

What until you see the pictures from today's adventure... we went to a tea party! It is my Mom's Birthday today! So to celebrate we decided to go out to afternoon tea at La-TEA-Da Tea Room here in Rochester. Tea parties are a special thing for Lauren & my Mom, they have them all the time. Needless to say, we were all giggling and pointing our pinkies.

The tea house is located inside an old Victorian house that are just everywhere in our city. It is painted with pink and purples, too cute. Inside, each room is lavishly decorated. Our table was in the Red Room. There was a HUGE mirror over an old fireplace and big huge windows. There was a bench full of hats under the window, in case you didn't bring your own, lol.

Everyone instantly adored Lauren! The owner said she has never seen a three year old sit for tea so nicely. LOL. They took her picture and said they are going to put it on their website. Anyway, we had the "afternoon tea" that was on the menu. We each had a bottomless cup of tea, scones with devonshire cream and jams, quesh (sp?), assorted finger sandwiches, chocolate covered strawberries and finger size desserts. We were all sighing with fullness by the end.

For tea, Mom started with Berry Berry, my sister had Cinnamon and I had the Cranberry Apple, all Herbal teas. Then for the second batch I had Blueberry Bingo and Mom & Bonnie both wanted my Cranberry Apple. Lauren put honey and sugar cubes in everyones drinks for them. And of course she was wearing her white Alice in Wonderland style gloves while she did.

As soon as the boys get home we are heading back over to my parents house for cake and ice cream! Then later I have book club. I haven't made any beads lately, and I am dyeing to so hopefully I can get some great ones tomorrow while Lauren is at school.

This week's free beads winner is CAROLE! YOO HOO! New beads are posted. Thanks again for all the support everyone!
