Yawn! I’m TIRED after my Kim & Suz Slumber Party! We had so much fun. Nice dinner, great wine, time to talk, an after-dinner stroll around the neighborhood, lots of silliness – basically, a total blast. We all padded off to bed around 1 a.m. – not quite like the good ol’ days when we’d stay up all night doing facials, trading back rubs, eating Doritos, playing spooky games, singing along to bad songs, and crank-calling boys. In fact, we did exactly none of those things, thank goodness. I’m much more for the grown-up version – especially a good night’s sleep in my own comfy bed! I could have used someone’s dad making us pancakes this morning, however, that was always one of my favorite sleepover traditions. Or iced cinnamon rolls and a bowl (or three) of Lucky Charms, like Stephanie Sanford’s mom used to make for us. That was the BEST! Instead I made steelcut oat Irish porridge with brown sugar and toasted walnuts, lots (!) of coffee, and Canadian bacon (Nueske’s – it RAWKS, mmm…). Up and at ’em!
I just returned from picking up John and Nathan at the airport – their trip to NYC was a big success! All the good stuff. Central Park, Wicked, Elio’s (linguine with white clam, of course), several slices of pizza in various spots (Nathan’s dream come true), a sleepover with Tom & Valerie and the kids. So now we’re all home, getting back into our usual Sunday groove… Hope you had a good weekend too!
