I could have taken more, but I didn't want to be greedy (because I would have taken almost all of them!), so I just took the ones that I thought were cool. They had lots of big black ones that were very "Coraline" that looking back, I kind of wish I'd taken too.
After we were finished raiding the buttons, Grandma went to pick up her friends for lunch while Mom and I went to the resturant to get a table. Grandma and her friends are the "Tuesday Girls", friends who have been meeting for lunch/dinner on Tuesdays since they were in junior high! My mom wrote an entry on her blog that has some memories of the Tuesday Night Girls.
There used to be 10...now there are only 3 left...Betty, Beverly, and Betty (there are LOTS of Bettys in Grandma's circle of friends). And let me tell you, they are a trip! Mom and I had such fun hanging out with them! I love that I'm at the point in my life where I can really appreciate hanging out with older women.
I love my Grandma. I wish I lived closer to so I could visit her more often.
