Raging Good Time

When Husband and I went downstairs this morning I remarked that our house was in relatively good shape after our "raging" BBQ. We think we and our friends are getting old and lame. :)

Okay it wasn't much of a "rager" but we did have a nice turn out - including a guest star appearance by Goddess in Progress with her sweet husband and adorable twins. My friend H was afraid she'd come off as a "stalkerazie" since she's read Goddess' older blogs (as have I) and feels like she already knows so much about her. My friend N thought that it was like Goddess and I were internet dating - since we had an online relationship but were meeting for the first time. Goddess really seems to have motherhood down so I'm glad I have her around for questions as I flounder forward!

So many of my friends have blogs now and I do love how it makes me feel like I know what is going on in their lives since we are all terrible about email and phone calls. It means we can pick right up where we left off.

Back to the BBQ - Husband did the lion's share work of cooking and I sat on the couch like a queen and caught up with friends. I had stopped Big Firm working by 4 pm (all from home so I could do chores around the house between "fire drills") with only the occasional bberry cheating. We ate chicken kebabs, buffalo sliders and hot dogs and a lovely fruit salad by T, my foodie friend. Husband loves fancy drinks so he tried out his Sloe Gin Fizz recipe he learned on the Wall Street Journal (it's apparently difficult to find sloe gin so he ordered it) that was supposedly very refreshing and caipirinhas (those will get you really drunk - at least it appears that way from Husband).

A few die-hard friends stayed to go to the fireworks over the lake in our town -at the ridiculously late hour of 9:30 pm (hee!). It was a very nice show but I have to admit my back was killing me by then.

Still working today (from home) but looks like we are signing up our deal today so I can have Sunday off. I hope I didn't just jinx it. Husband and I have done 2 BBQs this summer and we do like to entertain so maybe we can fit in another before our lives are taken over by 2 bundles of joy.

In case you're wondering what is on tap for Sunday it is organizing the babies' room - see below for how crazy disorganized it is - and writing thank you notes for my baby shower.

We had a wonderful time - thank you both for being such great hosts! Aaron was too good with refilling my wine glass, because my head is KILLING me!!!

It was totally fun, even though we didn't get to stay the whole time! Those cranberry cocktails were quite tasty. And I don't feel like anyone was blog-stalking me... that's what blogs are for! :-)

This is my first comment officially, but I've had a lot mentally! May we have a picture of the tykes' room after you finish it? Please! I have a lot of comments re number of children--can I post them anytime, or do I have to go to that segment?

thank god your deal is finally you can deal with getting the nursery done. By the way, the bookcase is finished and it looks quite good if I do say so myself.
