Ah tonight, tonight was a most excellent night. For one, I didn't have to cook. For two, I probably downed somewhere around 1500 calories in one sitting's worth of prime rib, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, and oh, pumpkin cheesecake. But don't worry about it. For three, my kids love Whitney and Ethan's house, there are trucks and movies about trucks, and Van screaming with joy, and we always eat like kings when we are there. It is good to have found your salvation when it comes to couple friends, even better when you can hang out interchangeably on an individual and family level because it gets weird when one member of the group is less likable and then you have to overcompensate for the weak link and that's just too much work. AmIright? Not everyone can appreciate the humor in these parts. The only way it could get better is if we lived closer or if one of us was independently rich and could float the other with some extra cash (or a trip to Europe?), but I am happy with what we have and do not desire to jinx it. I wasn't even pissed that I lost the group rock-paper-scissors battle and had to change Triple's bombed out diaper, not a bit. No party is complete without some extreme rock-paper-scissors going on.
After we left I did some phone time with two of my other number one lady loves. One on the drive home and the other after the babies were situated in bed. I love all the labies in my life, they make me feel glowy and happy. HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY. I hate the term GNO or any sort of reference to a "girl's night". Never do I think "man I just need a night with the girls", because that's just not my thing. I do, however, have a big crush on my favorites. You know who you are. Girls night soon? HAHAHAHAHAHA! No.
And now as usual I am up too late sitting in retrospect, writing to you, dear internets. But more for me because someday my kids will read this crap and be like "man, mom really was a nut job". Yes children, a nut job who chose well in the friend department and loved food more than most other basic necessities in life, and you too of course.
Now you know.
