I spent yesterday evening at Elle's place (her real place, not her blog) and JFab was there as well.
Elle fixed a delicious salad, stuffed shells and bread. We all ate (and ate) and talked. For dessert, she made Banana Split pie (I think that's what it was called - it was heavenly, and I'm normally not a pie person, but this had fresh fruit and a terrific consistency - not to mention it was drizzled with chocolate syrup...soooo, I gobbled it right up!).
After dinner, we sat in the den (that's TV room or fambly room to anyone not from the South) and talked some more. We told outrageous stories, and talked about JFab's impending motherhood. I was able to admire her perfectly shaped baby bump - and knew precisely how gloriously happy she is and how wonderful it is to feel the baby move around.
That - the movement - was the best part of both my pregnancies, but it's not something I want to experience again (for myself). It's just nice to revisit those fond memories every now and then.
I told them hair raising stories of the sex life of myself and the Evil Twin. Stuff I would never post on here, and not because I'm ashamed of it, but because I do try to keep it somewhat PG-13 here. But we did touch on the towel cabinet story and some other sordid facts.
Like the fact that I have lived a wild life and not sheltered at all, but how did I go so long before I found out what a Rusty Trombone is?
We laughed like school girls and surprisingly had SO much fun that I forgot to get my camera out and get pictures!
I'm sorry! But, I have a grand plan to have an even bigger Real Girl's Night Out for WV Bloggers and if we can arrange that, pictures will be taken! And posted!
It was so nice to get out of the house - alone - and have a nice dinner with only adults. I can't even adequately express my thanks to Elle for the lovely evening. But, THANK YOU so much! It was appreciated more than you'll ever know! :-)
