I'm gonna see how fast I can write this. Where does the time go? Things to do before I leave for work, and I want this to be one of them.

I watched a segment on the Today show about Google's contest for a logo for today's search page. Check it out!

Yesterday was just great. I only get to see my sister Ilene about twice a year, and my niece much less often, so we spent the day together, along with my mother, yesterday. They came to my house in the morning and we headed over to my salon. I did my sister's color and cut and my nieces haircut. We went to Columbia Mall after that, and started with lunch at Panera's. We spent time at Nordstrom's, Macy's, Restoration Hardware and LL Bean. Next was a stop to Trader Joe's, then on to my house. Emily joined us for the next part of the visit which was to G&M's restaurant, a place famous for their enormous Maryland crabcakes. I knew there would be a wait, and sent Emily and Sarah ahead to put our name on the list. We got my mother in, and there was really no place to sit and it was confusing. I found the hostess and asked her if there was a place for my handicapped mother to sit and wait. She asked if we had a reservation, and I told her I didn't know you could do that. She told us to hold on and in a minute, we had a table. I found Emily and Sarah and told them we had a table and they were shocked. They were told we had a 45-1 hour wait. How amazing was that? The meal was fabulous, and my GA family was very impressed with the crabcakes. We got home just in time to see a rainbow, and said our good-byes before American Idol started. BTW...I'm so excited that David Cook won!

Here's some pics from the day

I've got to run. I'll write more about Wii Fit that we got yesterday. Simply amazing.

Happy day!

I can't believe I've never heard of G&M. Sounds like a place I should know about!!
Have a happy day!

Wonderful day - we all have too few days spent with family. Nothing beats Maryland crabcakes!! Wish I had them for dinner - sigh . . The pictures are really nice. Thanks for sharing. Everyone looks relaxed and happy. That's just as it should be.
