Saturday we had a Moms Night Out. I hosted a movie night with the girls, everyone was encourage to dress for the Rocky Horror Picture Show, bring their favorite movie munchie and they're favorite drink. (I had the above pumpkin beer!) We're coming home from a great birthday party for Lil' O and I get a phone call from neighbor Jen...our block has zero electricity. Arghh. First folks are told, it will be back on by 4pm...then 5 pm...at 6pm, one hour before folks are due to arrive, it pops back on!
Folks all arrive in a timely fashion, Becky, Stephanie, Sally, Amanda, Allyson, Jennifer, Jen and Jeanne and Nonya, a very good turn out if you asked me. I think nothing of the cake that Stephanie carries in, okay I think "Hot Damn, she made my favorite cake!" My dear friend Staci got me hooked on this pumkin spice cake layered with this heavenly spiced whipped cream, then drizzled with carmel syrup and pecans. (this is NOT low calorie) Staci knows if she bakes it, I will come. Everyone wants to cut the cake and I'm like, "no lets wait for Jeanne, she's on her way" She arrives and the next thing I know, they're singing Happy Birthday. MNO was a RUSE, in true sneaky shaunery style, my very own devious friends GOT me! (I know my df Karla in MO would be laughing, pointing and thinking It's about freakin' time!!!) But it gets better, they give me a gift bag FULL of goodies! How wonderful is that? Freakin' WONDERFUL. Scrap paper, a cool t-shirt, socks and a cool magizine... we ate, drank, sang to the movie, threw popcorn and had a WONDERFUL time.
Ladies, thank you. You're the BOMB!!!
