Not only did we get introduced to Pope Francis, but it was also the sixth birthday of a certain girl I know. I got to have lunch with her and her mom and then spent the evening with her. We went to dance (rocking some great legwarmers), then spent quite a while at the dollar store picking out two items (some many things to choose from!). She finally chose a pink stretchy, sticky hand to go with a pair of jiggly-eye glasses. After that she and I dined at Hy-Vee, where she selected all her favorite things from the salad bar while I opted for a little Chinese food.
We got home in time to watch a few minutes of the Muppet Movie and greet minovia when she got home from conferences. Not a bad day at all.
