Ladies Night and a Play Date

As often as possible (which is hardly enough), I try to plan a ladies night and get all the girls together for some foot loose and fancy free good times. Ladies nights can often get pretty wild and crazy. Although maybe a wee bit more under control then usual, this one was really no exception. Fortunately for me, (unfortunately for you) there are no pictures of me on the dance floor or towards the end of the evening after I had somehow morphed into an extremely hot mess.

We met up at a restaurant called R.T. Weilers. There are cute pictures of dogs everywhere. I had a steak topped with onions and mushrooms with a side of steamed broccoli. Yum. It was my mom, my sister Amy, my friends Gina and Barb, and myself. Gina was such a trouper. She was 33 weeks preggo and looking as adorable as ever. You can't even tell she is pregnant in this picture. Which amazes me, considering I was such a whale.

After we were done eating, Toni and her sister Cheryl arrived, along with my gal Jessica.

And here is the last pic I had for the evening. My other sister Erin, met up with us at another bar. From left to right: Jess, me, my sister Erin, my sister Amy, and Barb.

After the restaurant, we went to a few different bars. It was sweltering hot outside and it wasn't much cooler inside. As the night went on, we all became more and more sweaty and disheveled. Luckily, we didn't seem to notice. Although, we probably should have. I had so much fun though. It was great to get out and just let loose. I finally got my dancing fix in, and plenty of it! I probably drank a little more then I should have, but that isn't hard to do when you don't drink very often. I love getting out on the town with both of my sisters. This rarely happens now that we all have kids. The next day was a little rough, but well worth it indeed.

My sister Amy's husband has left to work out of town for 60-90 days. He will be so far away and working so much, that he won't even be able to return for visits. I feel so terrible for them. Their daughter is often seen in my blog and she is only 6 weeks younger then the munchkin. I can't imagine Joe having to leave us for so long. It would be so hard. They had to re-figure their daycare situation for their little one and now she will be coming to our house on Thursday evenings. Yay! Yesterday was our first day.

Look at that cheesy smile. Isn't she just adorable?


Here she was caught playing with the door hinges.


The munchkin puked on all three of us,
so here they are stripped down to their little bloomers.

Shortly after this last picture. Things seemed to go down hill from there. Joe had left to go to school and both babies started to get tired and crabby. They are both teething and you can definitely tell. It wasn't anything I couldn't handle, but I felt bad that I couldn't give either of them the one on one attention they wanted. How do mammas with twins do it? All in all, it was so much fun having her over, they are starting to play together really well. I'm kinda excited we will have a scheduled play date with her every week!

The munchkin went to sleep really well last night, but around 11:00pm, she woke up screaming. Her incoming top front tooth was hurting her so bad! Plus her bottom two front teeth are still coming in as well. I gave her some teething gel, but it didn't seem to help at all. I sent Joe to the store to get some infant ibuprofen and she screamed the entire time he was gone. She started to settle down about an hour after we gave her some. Luckily she seemed to sleep pretty good through the rest of the night and is feeling much better today. Poor baby. My sister suggested the teething tabs, so I am going to pick some of those up this afternoon.

This teething stuff is a bitch.

I made pizza the other night, using flax seed meal for the crust. It was so good! I am going to post some pictures and the recipe later.

Oh, and I also wanted to add this little picture that our sitter emailed me the other day of the munchkin and her son playing together. So cute!

Thanks for calling me a trouper! I love that picture. And the munchkin and her cousin look so much alike. I want to see them in person together! Maybe we could schedule my next pedi for a Thursday night!

Cute, cute, cute! I love that picture of your niece playing with the door hinges-she looks so busted! I bet you were super busy and ready to call it a night after those two jokers went to sleep!
PS-is that Namaste by Day Gina? Love her!
