Ladies Night

This past Wednesday November 13th, I met some great ladies for dinner at Sage Wine Bar in Mendota Heights, MN. It's a nice, small, place to meet friends (though the sudden appearance of a band made me rather cranky!). I think most of us in the group had been there before-sometimes with each other!

You could possibly call this a blognic but only two of us are bloggers. You could call this a Ladies Argument of the Month club but no one was arguing. Or, you could just call it a good time with great company! It was that.

The dinner party was Swissy, Bede, L and I. Adoro was invited but I can't believe she's too busy to fit one more thing in! I mention the invite was extended to her because I don't want any of Adoro's fan base to think I dissed her and fly in from Ohio and kick my behind! LOL!

My dinner. A medium New York Strip-cooked to perfection. The other side of the table: Bede and Swissy like their meat deader than dead. I like to know that mine lived once.

Here's a photo that brings a tear to my eye! Swissy and I with a Special Guest!

that last one is a hoot- we recently saw "Mr Magorium's Magic Enporium" and Nathan is now infatuated with sock monkeys! :D

NEXT time you'll have to meet a wee bit later so I can come up and join you!

Well, THANKS for inviting me, Cath. Despite the fact that no boys were allowed, I was expecting at least an invitation.

Now, remember...I work for the CHURCH, which means that not only do I not make a living wage, but I have to work EVERY FREAKING WEDNESDAY!

I hate working an irregular schedule.

* sigh *

OK...I'm going to bed. It's a class weekend and 5 am comes very dark.

Glad y'all had fun! Wish I could have been there, too.

A Heineken-drinking sock monkey! Smart monkey.

BTW, I like my steak so red you can still hear it moo.

Vin: I know! Looter Guy likes to show up and spread his happiness everywhere-even with beer he didn't pay for! :-)

Chris: Yep.

L: It was remarkably free of whine! I'm glad.

Tom: If I thought you'd fly all the way in from Vegas, I would've invited you!

Adoro: I'm sneaky like that. *meow* Luv ya! :-)

Argent: LOL!
