Dinner Is Served

My friends Ashley and Stacy are so great! When they couldn’t make my birthday last Saturday, Ashely decided to host a dinner party the following weekend at her and Andy’s pad. Pretty sweet table setting, eh?

I spent much of the evening being charmed by Baby Jack, Ashley and Andy’s incredibly cute son. The expressions that kid has…. I could just eat him up!!

Speaking of eating… We feasted! Shaun and I contributed a few rounds of cocktails as well as eggrolls from House of Eggroll. Stacy brought wine and bacon wrapped steak and scallops.¬†Ashley went all out and made tiny tarts of brie, fruit, and phyllo pastry shells; green beans; a fresh salad with balsamic vinaigrette; mashed potatoes; and brandied apple pork tenderloin. And the dessert! It was atomic and amazing! …Brownies, fruit, creme fraiche, and a potent liquor that was just what we needed after drinking vodka cocktails and wine all night :P

We also had a few Dance Central dance-offs! And by ‘we’ I mean they while I cheered them on. For however athletic I may be, I am pretty hopeless at anything involving quick eye-hand coordination when following someone else’s lead which is why I haven’t jumped on the Zumba bandwagon or participate in any group fitness classes even though they are included in my gym membership. You might say I march to the beat of my own drum. Heh :) Plus with golf, tennis, running, and yoga, I figure I’ve got enough activities to keep me movin’! Besides, I can’t be good at everything. (Haha I can’t even write that and keep a straight face!!)


Thanks so much for the fun evening!!
