Guess who's coming to dinner?

Today is quite a big day! My blogger buddies from Antioch California, Regena and Denise are driving down to Southern California to meet up with Amy and I to attend the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach tomorrow. Amy lives about 30 minutes from me an we've already spent some time together "thrifting". She is so much fun! The 4 of us met through apron swaps and have become truly good friends! This is the first time that we will all meet face to face! We have shared so much together this past year and we've laughed together (A LOT) and cried together (OK...Regena doesn't really cry)  and today we are going to shop together! Yep, that's right.....a trip to M & L yardage is on the agenda for this afternoon and then dinner at my house. I'm making Picadillo, a Cuban dish (you can find the recipe here) and cheesecake for dessert :) Yum!
On Saturday night Regena is going to make fried chicken.....
oh my!!!
 I can already tell you that the best part of this weekend is going to be the laughter and the memories we are about to make!
Great friends, fabulous fabrics and good food....
