What a great weekend we had our house.
Friday night started it off with a bang. It was Mom's Night Out and I so needed it!
My Dad however was quick to remind me that my Mom did what I do x2, with no M.N.O. and no alcohol, Dad you forgot she also worked from home and could paint an entire house and deep clean the house before I got home from school! As I agreed with him I thought to myself~Yep my Mom was freaking crazy!
My mom is an amazing lady and a great Mom. I only pray that I can be half as good as she was/is. But I'm just keeping it real ladies in order for that to happen I need me a little adult time with mindless conversations over the rim of a glass, you know what I mean?
I love you Mom...you're the best!
So we went to Chili's for drinks (just 2) and dinner and had a blast! Debi, the original Bon Qui Qui, kept us all in stitches. She honestly has got to be the funniest person I know. She is, how do I say this without being offensive, a spicy, crazy, full of life black woman trapped inside a white woman's body! Seriously ya'll if I didn't know better... She did her hair in a "white weave" just for us and proudly announced it, heady bobbin', finder wavin' and all.
Me ~ Debi ~ Natalie
After dinner she and I went to see Madea, (the others went home to bed) this was totally new to me~go figure. The movie was pretty funny but again I enjoyed the audience participation more than the movie itself. The highlight of the night was when I thought Debi and I were going to have a smack down with the little 17 year old hoochie sitting next to Debi. Girls, she (Debi) started taking her earrings out as not to have them ripped from her head! My daughter would have died a slow agonizing death of embarrassment had she witnessed that!
Ahhh Good times!
Saturday I took my girls to the mall to find boots for my oldest to wear Sunday night. My sweetheart of a girlfriend and her husband were able to get Honey a meet and greet with Jessica Simpson, it's so nice to have friends in high places!
Honey & Jessica ~I blocked out the back ground as to not ruin my little contest
Saturday night we had friends over for dinner, I love last minute plans, don't you? The guys were supposed to go to a hockey game but that changed and we all hung out at my house instead. Natalie brought her new baby Delilah...have you seen anything cuter than her?
She is resting her little head on a Sniffany and Company plush toy. How cute is she?!?!
Sunday...I will give you a few hints, I want to see if you can guess where we went.
1. Dirt walkways
2. Babies dressed in only diapers
3. Clogging competitions ( I have to admit was impressed with their fast foot work)
4. Chocolate covered bacon...and yes I tried it, curiosity got the better of me and I had no choice. For the record...it is terrible!
5. The sale of any kind of meat on a stick!
6. Cut off jeans so short that the pockets hung out the bottom.
7. Mullets (yes plural), you know the classic business in the front~party in the back do!
8. Glittery hand-made t-shirts with matching visors (Nat we are so wearing those in the Dominican!).
9. Countless large breasted braless woman wearing their husbands t-shirts.
10. Children crying because they didn't win the goldfish. You know like the one being carried around, belly side up boiling in the Florida sun, in the plastic bag.
Can you guess where we were? If you're one of the smart ones that guess it correctly I'll enter your name in a random draw and send you a little something~something. I will draw the winner next Monday...so tell me where you think we were!
Now I do not want to sound like a complete snob, it was a good time..really, but it made me very grateful that I do not have or want a confederate flag blazing in the front yard next to the rusted truck on blocks!
I will leave with a question from Debi...
Do you fold your panties and hide them when you go to the gynecologist?
Girls, I so do that! I fold them and tuck them in the pocket of my jeans. WHY? This man is about to look INSIDE of me and for some unknown reason I don't want him to see my panties! This is the stuff we talk about during M.N.O and it's needed to keep our sanity!
Happy Monday Ya'll!
