I love our kitchen table. When the movers were unpacking our things when we first moved to London, the table was the first thing out of the truck and the head mover came up to me and said, “that table isn’t going to fit through the door.” I simply looked at him and said, “oh, yes it is.” Case closed. And it fit.
Honey made our table a long time ago, before I was even born I believe. Then he put a new top on it when it came to live with me when Mike and I got married. I feel a bit bad because something tells me that when he was spending his precious time making this table, this was not a scene that he ever pictured happening at his work.
The girls (Meghan, Sarah and Tamara) had plans to go see the reunion tour of the New Kids on the Block on Saturday night. I like to tease them and tell them that I didn’t want to go because they were before my time, which is true, but I don’t add that I was socially weird and didn’t know anything about pop music until I was about 15. So we invited all of the husbands over for a poker night! I showed them what true southern hospitality was and made cheese dip.
I also found a new favorite cake recipe, Chocolate Stout Cake. And I got to use my newly acquired cake plate.
We played for hours while the girls were getting their KNOTB fangirl groove on! I was quite the card shark. Not really but I did win a few hands!
Mike did us proud by coming in second in the first tournament and winning the second tournament!!
Kricket got in on the action too.
The girls came over after the concert and we played a few rounds of Wii tennis and bowling before everyone headed home! It was a great night, partly because Mike won all our money back and partly because we got to hang out with all our friends!
Sorry about the table.
