Wine with Friends

Last night I got together with several of my favorite preschool moms for wine and conversation.  A couple of them won’t be returning to Cutie Pie’s school in the fall which makes me a little sad.  I hope that we are able to keep in touch though.  They really are a great group of ladies who helped me keep my sanity when I led the parent volunteer group.  It was a much needed night out.

I left there feeling so relaxed only to arrive home at 11 PM to my kids who were still awake.  To J’s credit he was busy cleaning up the back porch from the pool parties and setting up our old laptop for Wildman.  But still, I kind of lost my cool when I heard little kid voices at such a late hour.  I am with them all day long everyday.  I really don’t want them to be up during the night which is our only quiet time.  I just wanted to come home to J and talk or hang out.  Is that selfish?  Instead of spending time together, he could not understand why I was annoyed and we fought…

The children did go to bed as soon as I got home but it really wasn’t what I wanted to come home to.  The kids were up at normal time this morning and are tired as a result of their late night.  *sigh*


Burgers and Blue Man Group

Look who’s 39!!!

Last Tuesday, Steph and I took our friend, B, out for her birthday.  We surprised her with a trip to Universal’s City Walk in Orlando.  We had originally planned to take her to Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville for dinner but the wait was atrocious.  We headed over to Pat O’Brien’s instead and were seated immediately.  It was two-for-one hurricane night too!  Too bad the hurricanes were 32 oz and we didn’t have time for another round…  Our server gave us free drink tokens for our next trip though.  We ended up ordering yummy cheese burgers for dinner because our original plan of Margaritaville had us craving a cheeseburger (in paradise).  Our entertainment was a lone pianist belting out hits from Billy Joel and Neil Diamond.

I tipped him $10 to sing B “Happy Birthday” and her favorite, “Brown-Eyed Girl”.  B was a little embarrassed but loved it and sang right along!  In fact, the entire restaurant sang along.  It was so fun!

The night’s biggest surprise came when we took B over to the Sharp Aquos Theater to see Blue Man Group!  She was so surprised.  The show was the same one that J and I saw a couple of years ago.  It was just as entertaining and hilarious.  We all had a wonderful time!

Happy birthday, B!  We love you!  Can’t wait until next year when we celebrate a real milestone year…  🙂

Girls Night Out

Remember those shoes I told you about?  Well, I finally got to wear them about two weeks ago when a few of us got together for a girls night out.  We ate dinner at The Melting Pot then walked over to the theater to see Sex and the City 2.

You can’t tell from the picture but they are glittery silver peep toes with gold heels.  Lovely and perfect for this occasion!  I received many a compliment on them.  If they didn’t hurt my feet I would wear them everywhere.  Totally appropriate for the grocery store, no?

Cheers to more girls nights!
