Way back in January, Rick and I started something new. We started dating again. Each other of course. I gave Rick some date night tickets for Christmas last year. There was one ticket for each month. We started off pretty well, but that lasted only about three months. We haven’t been on a date since March!
This past Friday, we made up for our lack of dating by doing a triple date with my two best friends from elementary school and their menfolk. We met at Heather’s
mansion home, ate lots of food, talked and laughed a LOT, and played some xbox Kinect.
This spread was for 6 adults. We had a lot of leftovers! Heather and Greg made burgers the size of my head that were stuffed with cheese. They were delicious! Beth and I were to bring a side and a dessert. We each brought a couple sides and a couple desserts. Perhaps it was overkill, but it was a yummy overkill.
Since we were all together, we decided to celebrate Mark’s birthday (it was Saturday). We put candles in my famous Peanut Butter Pie. It’s super yummy! Mark is Beth’s beau. Remember Beth? She has now met someone WONDERFUL. We’re all excited for her and think this one is a keeper!
If you’re going to play xbox Kinect, (or any game on any game system really) the best way to play is with a projector screen. Boy, was this fun! We did a sports tournament game –girls against the guys – and I’ve never laughed so hard running in place or flailing my arms. It was such a fun time. Oh, and the girls won EVERY round. Just sayin’.
My friends Heather and Beth have been in my life for 26 years. We all met in elementary school and went through high school together. Beth and I shared lockers every single year of middle school and high school and dyed her hair every color that Kool-Aid comes in. Heather and I used to sing in my basement to Debbie Gibson using Lincoln Logs as microphones. We also sang in her room with her real microphone to any song we could find. These two ladies have been and will always be a part of my life and I couldn’t be luckier to call them friends. And at this point, I can’t de-friend them because they know too much!
Thank you, Heather, for hosting us and being such a warm and welcoming host. I love your blond moments and all the laughter that comes out when we’re together.
Thank you, Beth, for bringing your Mr. Wonderful to meet your wacky friends. He’s wonderful, and I hope we didn’t scare him away. After all the laughing, how are your cheeks?
Honey, thank you for coming with me on this loud and crazy date. It means a lot to me that you were willing to hang out with my crazy, loud friends. And thanks for snuggling with me on the couch during the games. I loved that most of all!
I’m hoping that we’ll be able to make this Triple Date Night happen at least once a year for all of our years to come. I love you guys!!
I hope you have friends like this in your life. Friends like these are rare treasures.
Now, for the recipe for my mom’s SUPER YUMMY Peanut Butter Pie. Enjoy!
