This is been such a fun weekend! And lucky for me, it continues tomorrow. Thank you President’s Day!
On Friday night the Bayles came over for a yummy dinner and a double date to the movies! Ben & Seth are the BEST husbands because they took me & Paula to see Confessions of a Shopaholic! It was really the boys who wanted to see the movie – they practically DRUG us in the theater.
I read the books in college and they are hilarious…and the movie was no exception. We definitely laughed it up…EVEN the boys occasionally. Isla Fisher did a fantastic job. And really, we learned a life lesson of how NOT to be shopaholics!
On Saturday, Andrea was visiting from Kansas, so I met her, Jessie & Sharon at Olive Garden for lunch. YUM. Nothing says mmm mmm good like some soup, salad, and breadsticks! It was great to catch up and they had just seen Shopaholic so we had to compare notes!
Saturday evening, several of us got together to do a “group” Valentine’s Day celebration in attempt to avoid the ridiculous restaurant prices and set menus that you can’t avoid on V-Day. Garrett, Sam, Matt, and Seth sent us girls off to see He’s Just Not That Into You while they prepared dinner. Unfortunately, that was a popular movie for Valentine’s afternoon, so we ended up killing time at Kim’s house since it was sold out.
We walked in the door to find this good lookin’ spread:
The boys went all out! They found the china, made shrimp cocktail, steaks, twice-baked potatoes, fresh green beans, sauteed mushrooms, and salad. It was awesome! We all decided to be casual though since we were staying in, so us girls donned our best velour and the guys wore their best t-shirts. Nothing says “I love you Honey” like comfy old clothes, right?
Matt, Garrett, Seth, & Sam
Thank you boys! We love you!
For dessert, we made 3 types of chocolate fondue. My aunt gave us a fondue pot for Christmas so we were able to break that out and figure out how to use it. I’m not sure why we didn’t use this any sooner because it was delish!! We had pound cake, bananas, strawberries, pretzels, graham crackers, rice crispies, and marshmellows to dip in the fondue.
What a fun night. Unfortunately I forgot to get pictures of the girls. We were too busy eating chocolate.
I plan on resting, reading, taking a bubble bath, and maybe even going to test drive some cars tomorrow! Yes folks, this will be the year of the new car. I can’t wait!
