I'm a party animal wannabe

Wow did I have a busy weekend! I went out 3 nights in a row this weekend without the kids - I think that is the most i've gone out consecutively in oh, how old is Noah, lol, almost 4 years!! On Friday night, me, Lisa (next door) and 3 other ladies from our neighborhood went out for a "ladies night out". We went to this awesome restaurant, Oz Chophouse, which was not only soooo delicious but had a great ambiance as well (we sat under a tree inside!). Lisa and I started our own little "happy hour" before we left, so it was a full fun night for us girls.

Saturday morning, Lisa and I packed the kids in our cards and headed out to Krazy KT's big warehouse sale. Unfortunately, the lodge gave her the wrong address, so it took us quite a long time to get there as we had to stop and ask for directions twice, but we made it! We got some great deals, and then I hit up another LSS that is out that way. Saturday evening I headed out to the 30th birthday party for one of my good friends. It was "adults only" party and we didn't have a babysitter, so Tony stayed home with the little ones.

Then last night we went to the Black Crowes concert and wow, it was fun!! Not only do I like the Black Crowes and enjoyed a date night out with my hubby, but some of my closest girlfriends were there, too! It was actually my friend dana's 33rd birthday yesterday, so a bunch of us went to celebrate with her. Unfortunately, since we all lead busy lives and some of us live about an hour from each other, we don't get to all get together that often. And even though the whole gang wasn't there, we had an absolute blast hanging together. We also got lucky to have a gorgeous night, and Wolf Trap lets you bring food and alcohol in - how cool is that?? So we had a nice big picnic on the lawn, under the stars, listening to good music. Grace Potter opened, who I had never heard of, but I really liked her, too, so i'll be checking her out online.

Me and Lauren attempting a self-portrait:

Tony and I have a running joke that we can never get a good picture taken of us. Last night was no exception, lol. Here is our attempt:



Me and Jamie:

Dana, Me, Mia and Jamie attempting "sexy poses". We failed miserably, huh?
Anyway, since I've been slacking in the creating department, I figured i'd overload you with pics. I forgot to mention the Disney Playhouse Rock Concert we went to on Wednesday which, despite it being VERY hot out, was also a blast! It was an all afternoon/evening event with several children's performers including They Might Be Giants (who I had seen back in the day in college). We went with a couple we're close with and their son, so that was another fun-filled day.




Hope everyone also had a great weekend!!
