The cost of a perfect morning

Waking up to the rain: free, and glorious

Vanilla Bean frappucino from Starbucks: $3.50

A few hours of perusing books at Barnes and Noble: free (but I would totally pay admission if they charged it - it's THAT great)

The purchase of one book entitled On Writing Well: $16.34 (although I was kindly reminded that a member would have paid a mere $14.84)

A delicious lunch at Panera Bread, including half a turkey artichoke panini, a cup of broccoli cheddar soup, and a baguette: $8.15

3 hours of a good babysitter: $15

Good conversation with a dear friend: free

Having that dear friend get hit on by a 60-year old man: PRICELESS

Ha Ha Ha! I'm still not sure whether to laugh about it or be completely creeped out. But, you're right, it was a perfect morning! Thanks for sharing it with me.

Sounds awesome! But I am a little bitter that ya'll live in the same neighborhood and get to hang out all the time. I hate living 45 mintues away!!! BOOOOOO!!!!!
