I love the way Darcie writes…she always has a clever way of telling a story, either making me laugh out loud or shed a tear or two. And Stephanie (my “bloggy mentor”) is one of the smartest, business savvy bloggers I know. So yeah…in pretty good company, I was.
My DH was sweet enough to take the boys for the evening so it could be a true Mom’s Night Out. And I must confess, I was a bit cranky trying to get them out of the house without leaving crumbs on my clean floor and fingerprints on my clean sliding glass door. For which I had to send an “Im sorry” text after they were gone. But don’t tell anybody…I’ll deny it ever happened.
We had a great time eating, chatting, and ogling over Stephanie’s baby. Everything went smoothly except for when Darcie had the audacity to look at my dog, Nacho, making him growl at her. (Way to go, Darcie!) Oh, and the coconut cupcake snafu.
Speaking of which, here’s the Ina Garten recipe. Just beware: it lists 14 oz. coconut in the list of ingredients, but then only calls for 7 oz. in the directions…a small little detail I missed. Don’t tell Stephanie and Darcie.
I love getting together with friends. I love blogging. And eating.
And Nacho and Darcie were friends by the end of the night.
It was a good night.
