143.0…More is more.
Oh yes. In the last 24 hours….there has been a lot of wine…and jello shots.
When I arrived at Lisa’s house last night for Bunco, I was presented with a dilemma: cupcakes or Jello shots.
Me being me….I decided BOTH. Jello shots first though.
The cupcakes would have to wait until later.
For now, the Jello shots ruled the roost.
How old am I again?
Lisa made sangria. It’s normal to drink from the pitcher with a straw right?
You know me by now….I’m more of a wine girl.
And sometimes champagne when the glass is especially pretty.
Don’t worry….I did eat dinner. I never forget to eat.
Nor do I forget to eat dessert.
Shall I keep going? Ok…Cupcake #4:
C’mon people….these are mini cupcakes!!
Lisa taught Julie how to do a “proper Jello Shot”:
After you have Jello shots, you have inhuman strength and can lift your 100lb friend Cathi:
…..and you can also consume 5 mini cupcakes.
Since there are doggie pics all over the bloggy world, I thought I’d share with you Lisa’s dog, Harley:
Self portrait of Harley and I:
WARNING!!!! If you consume too many Jello shots and cupcakes THIS may happen:
Let’s move on, shall we….
English muffin with peanut butter and an orange. I needed fuel for my half marathon training run today: 3 miles.
Mile 1- 11:09
Mile 2 – 11:02
Mile 3 – 10:50
Enough of the boring stuff. Today is my friend Cathi’s birthday….you know…the one I was lifting last night? Our friend, Michelle, threw her a little birthday lunch today that went on……..and on…..and on. I’d still be there but I really needed to come home and cook dinner for the people who live in my house. You know how that goes.
When I arrived, Michelle asked me if I’d like a ginger martini.
Lisa liked them too!
Lisa was trying to take a picture of me with the center piece placed so that it would look like some weird thing sprouting out of my head.
We are dorks.
Ok….check it out….the birthday girl!
Guess how old she is!
I don’t lie. She makes me sick. But I still love her.
We had these fabulous spring rolls with peanut butter sauce (and more wine):
Lunch was incredible: Curry shrimp, chicken marinated in coconut milk, eggplant and jicima salad:
After lunch we hung out in Michelle's backyard for awhile. I was in paradise.
And when the coconut birthday cake arrived, I died and went to heaven.
That’s how all Wednesday’s should be. Happy Birthday Cathi!
Now it’s time to return to real life.
Are you a fan of coconut? What about martinis? I for one am not a martini fan, I prefer wine. :)
