5 thing Friday - memory stone, Keurig, lunch out, cross stitchin', heels

I used a 40% off coupon at Joann to buy one of those stepping store kits like you have kids do in the summer...only it's for me to do.  As a memory stone for Sugar's burial spot  underneath the crepe myrtle in the back yard.
I want to "edge" it with bricks so that it's a slightly larger square and more protected.  It will have Wandering Jew and grass all around it.  More pics when I get that done!*
I made one about 8 years ago and it's in the front landscaping.  Though you can barely see it here (sorry) it has held up well.  I need to get out here and clean out the landscaping if it ever stops raining...then I'll re-position this one so we can see it.
This is the third Keurig we've had in as many years.  It decided to die last week.  The company is sending me another to replace it, but for goodness sake - you spend so much money on them for it to be so short-lived.  Does it seem to you that things are shoddily-made to wear out and be replaced often?  Whatever happened to appliances that last for years?
I found a new place to take the boys for lunch next time the three of us have a day off together.  These are kimchi fries with soy-glazed chicken, monterrey jack and cheddar cheeses, sriracha sauce...very tasty!  And they are opening a location close to our neighborhood.
One last snide cross stitch before I start a more "family blog appropriate" design. 
Hubby and I are still enjoying us some Happy Hours with apps and drinks.  It's about the only time I get to wear heels and a skirt - it's nice to dress pretty now and again.  And I have a lot of stuff I either need to start wearing or clear out of my closet 
(like these pink shoes!)



*Missing my kitty a lot lately...sigh...

So sorry to read about your pet. Lunch looks delicious. My husband is a big fan of kimchi. Thank you so much for your comment. I sincerely appreciate you thinking of me. It truly means a lot. All is well! I've just become quite the sporadic blogger.

We love those stones for our kids' handprints.
