Sex, Drugs & Coco Puffs

You are probably thinking what the heck does that title have to do with family date night? Just read on. You'll see.

Last night was Family Date Night, we made the usual drive down the back roads to get there. We had to make it just a dinner night because the girls had plans. We ate at Mike's Place. We passed our forks around sampling each others meals. We had pecan crusted Grouper, Blackened Chicken, Chicken tarzen, Coconut shrimp, Scampi, shrimp with sauce, sweet potato
fries, red beans & rice, green beans with bacon, spinach with parmesan cheese and so much more. We talked over our plans for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Next Wednesday it's a date to bake at Grandmas!!!


We got done just in time to drop the girls off at their house, give our hugs & kisses and said goodbye. They had to be at the college by 7:30. It was mandatory for Meg to be there since she is a writing major; Tori just loves to read and they both love this author. They went to see & hear Chuck Klosterman speak. Although I didn't finish this book....I did read most of it and enjoyed what I read. It's quite interesting....it's all about Pop Culture.

I have Christmas Tree and Ornament shopping for the church tonight with my girlfriends. I probably won't have time to get back on and read blogs till Thursday. Oh, I can feel the withdrawals now!! I'll have so much to catch up on.

LOL!! I had no clue you were talking about a book! he he...I can't remember the last book I read from cover to cover that didn't have pictures. With 5 children, Dr. Suess is about as good as it gets around here! :)...Your girls are beautiful by the way.

I love the pic of your girls. And "Sex, Drugs, and Coco Puffs" huh? You'll have to do a synopsis for me when you are done reading it.

See you on Thursday!

That title caught my attention!! I bet you get some weird hits on Google!! I have to agree with everyone else that the girls are just so pretty and your family date nights seem so fun. Have a fun day with the ornament shopping -- wish I could be there!! I'm sitting being bored at the cancer center watching toxic chemicals make my husband better --- gosh, that just doesn't sound right now does it?
