mom's night out

thursday night couldn't have come at a better time. i love my kids with every ounce of my being, but after the 10 hour car ride back from disney where both of them (especially the mabster) sang and talked the ENTIRE.TIME. (no lie), i was beyond looking forward to a peaceful laid-back kidless night out with the girls. there were no questions of naming the seven dwarfs, which princesses she met, when can we go again?, are we there yet?, demands of certain dvds being played, so on and so forth. never once did she stop for air. seriously. and naps? nope. that luxury we enjoyed going down was definitely not performed coming back. oh well. whattayagonnado?

so where was i? oh yes. so jay gets home thursday, and i dart out the door like a bat outta hell. i pick up yankee belle, and then we meet up with blue momma, heather, and lynda at california pizza kitchen since some weren't attending the latter part of the night, and we really wanted to enjoy their company. after dinner, we hop, skip, and jump over to superior grill where poodlehead hosted a jewelry party of a handmade artwear line featuring gorgeous pieces made of natural stones with beautiful accents. my SIL, gracie, was invited and met us there as well. she met everyone at our birthday party, and everyone seems to think she's pretty cool. well of course she is! i was so glad she came since we got a chance to catch up as we all talked about various things. we enjoyed margaritas while listening to the live band on the back patio, and all around, it was a great night. here are just a couple of pics that i was able to snag...
