iPhone-o-Gram! Out to Lunch!

I found some time to grab a friend for lunch out in the beautiful October sunshine!

I picked my buddy Pat Sloan up at her lovely home and we drove down to Reston town plaza where there are a plethora of shops, boutiques, and restaurants!

We both agreed on Mexican and quenched our hunger for guacamole and chips :-)

I absolutely loved the painted vases at the front greeting counter! Just look at all of that color and pattern!

We spent some after lunch time walking around the plaza and enjoying the other passersby and dipping in and out of various shops to occupy our time.

It was the perfect respite in a very very busy sequence of days and I'm glad she had the free time to spend with me!

No matter how far, nor how near, quilting friends are the best! :-)

Such fun! My husband and I enjoyed meeting Pat and her husband in March when she came to Greenville. You two will have a great day together. Happy Quilting.

what fun to go out shopping and eating with someone else that also enjoys quilting. Uncle Julio's is a great place to eat. We have one here in Texas as well.

Those vases remind me of the pumpkins on the cover of Country Living magazine! Very trendy! Sounds like you had a nice afternoon with a good friend! The restaurant looks very inviting. Have a great stay in Virginia!
