Saturday Night

Dinner with C & J was fabulous. Just what we needed. Delicious food, and wonderful company. We can be ourselves around them, and that is the greatest gift right now.

My soup was legendary, as always:

I meant to get a pic of the four of us, and forgot…again. Lol. But I did get these snaps:

It was a good night. ♥️

Saturday Night Wine Fest

C & J came over last night to hang. We did our blind wine tasting. It was all reds. We had: Pinot noir, merlot, brunello, Syrah, and a sweet red. The price points were: $10, $20, $30, $50, and $100. I did horribly this round and only managed 1 point. The sweet red was obviously the easiest to identify. Anyway – wine (and pizza) ftw!

We sat around talking for like six hours, and it was lovely. They’re one of my favorite couples because they are so easy to talk to, especially now. They don’t shy away from talking about my cancer or death, and that’s exactly what I need. We’re lucky to have them, and I’m grateful that D will have them to lean on when the time comes.

Here’s a pic of Sansa from last night, just because she’s so damn cute:

Our Christmas Party 2022

We had a good turnout, though I didn’t get many pics. Yankee Swap was a success. Def want to do that again next year.

I eventually ditched the dress and wig because it was too hot.

Jackson started feeling sick about halfway through the night. He was complaining of a sore throat. I hope he wakes up feeling better, and I hope he didn’t get anyone sick.

Our neighborhood tonight:

A couple of the paper lanterns caught on fire. 😂


Carrie and I hit the road this morning to visit our old stomping grounds in Columbia. We had lunch at a favorite restaurant, and then visited campus, where I got my shop on at the school bookstore. I needed a new Mizzou Law tee since mine is filled with holes, and I’m happy to report I’m now the owner of a brand new one. I also picked up some swag for the kids since they both have talked about maybe going to Mizzou. It was great to be back there and remember all the things from such a fun and carefree time in my life.

We had so much to talk about and I feel like we talked non-stop all day. It was perfect and so very good for my soul.

I love you, lady!! Never forget it. ♥️

I finally left the house!

I went out with Jen and had a fabulous time. It was just what I needed. I had too many Moscow Mules, but was able to fight off the headache.

We cute:

And she brought me a present!!

This pet bed from Aldi. Isn’t it the cutest???

Sansa is a fan.

I need to force myself to get out more. It’s good for my mental health. I need my friends now more than ever.

Thanks for a fabulous night, babe. ♥️

Cleveland Brewery Tour

Our agenda:

We actually made it to each location. Not too shabby. I’m pleased to say that I paced myself extremely well, and am not hungover. Praise hands!!

And onto the pics!

Not entirely sure on how tomorrow will play out, but we’re having a great time. I’m so glad D gets this time with his bestie. He really needs it. ♥️
