Happy Monday all!
Today I'm sharing some mix-matched Melmac that I got up at a thrift store up at school. I liked the colors of the plates together, but there was only one cup. There wasn't a price tag on them, so I sort of nervously asked the owner what the price was, because that store was sort of price-y. She looked at the plates and said $2. And I'll even through the cup in." I was SO excited because this Melmac is really nice and durable, so 8 pieces for two bucks was fantastic.
Today was just a fantastic day. My friend, Allison, came over for supper and a quick trip to the ice cream parlor.
And then I pulled out a book that I got recently called "How to Speak Dutch-ified English" and we just laughed and giggled over the words and accents that we grew up around. I don't know if I ever talked about this before, but my mom's family is very PA Dutch and I we use a lot of words that are different. My grandma has a very strong accent and my mom's is fairly strong too. Even though sometimes I get so frustrated with the conservative area that I grew up in, I really do like my PA Dutch heritage. I really want to share some of those words, food, and customs of my family and the PA Dutch culture. I'll keep you posted. (Literally). =P
