In the battle of sequin shorts versus ball gown, I said yes to the dress.
We started the night with some Mexican food and margaritas and then made our way to the big event. The gala was a lot of fun. We enjoyed signature cocktails, cake pops with little vials of liqueur, socializing, and dancing in da club.
We left the boys at home and made it a girls night. Except for the part where Kevin drove us to the event, and one of the other gal’s husband picked us up and drove us home. Nice guys.
That was Saturday night.
Friday night was spent in Paris.
Well, a Paris themed cocktail party fundraiser for the city museum. It was so well done. Very classy and there was an open bar. (Of course, Kevin and I went wild and each had one drink. Which meant that we could fully enjoy the drunken, bizarre ramblings of other people at the end of the night.)
We met some friends for brunch on Saturday morning. Taking advantage of the gorgeous weather, we staked out a table on the patio and enjoyed catching up.
And Sunday I was lazy, lazy, lazy – spending the day with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I begrudgingly left Harry at home to run to the grocery store mid-day, and then we enjoyed a yummy early-Easter dinner with Kevin’s parents, my great-aunt and great-uncle, and some family friends.
In other recent events, on Monday, April 7, I had a date. The doorbell rang at around 5:30 PM. I opened the door to find a very handsome man holding a bouquet of summery flowers.
He took me to dinner at a Thai restaurant. He ordered mango chicken and I ordered the garlic pork. Just like we had on our first date – April 7, 2010.
We stopped for ice cream and then he drove me home. To OUR home. Our first date was a lot of fun…but we agreed that the fourth anniversary of our first date was even better.
How was your weekend?
