group date.


Monday, December 19, 2011

We had big plans on Saturday to join the holiday masses and throw an ugly sweater party complete with photobooth, prizes, and all but we were stinkers and cancelled the shindig. After a week of two christmas parties and a cookie exchange I had had my fill of christmas joy. So instead we got a group of friends together and satisfied our itching for some bbq.

Things I learned at dinner:

:: there are many types of bbq and apparently they all taste significantly different. we inhaled north carolina pork but I guess there's such a thing as Louisiana bbq and that tastes more vinegary? I think I would like that.
:: two baby front teeth can puncture through a small container of butter. my friend had to tell me that my baby's mouth was oozing with the sticky cream, all the while I failed to notice because I was too busy stuffing my face with mashed potatoes
:: there are three foods in this world I love: grilled cheese, macaroni and cheese and pulled pork. that's it.
:: even if I have had way too many cookies for my own good and shouldn't order dessert I will never EVER pass up key lime pie. even if husband gives me the look that says "are you sure you really want to do that?" yes, i'm sure! even if I gain back the 5 lbs I worked off, yes I'm SURE!
:: group dates are fun! and I think Evelyn behaves much better when others are around.

  2. What a fun group date! Pulled pork BBQ is so yummy. I went to an ugly sweater party this weekend, I just need to find time to upload the pictures.

    And no matter how much you stuff yourself, there's ALWAYS room for desert!

  11. Thanks for stopping by my blog. This one is ADORABLE! Evelyn is such a cute baby girl and I've always loved that name. Your storyboards are awesome! It sounds like your hubby is plugging away at school in VA? My hubby just finished school in NY. TOTALLY worth the effort, and such an adventure to be so far from home! Merry Christmas!
