I had to get that last depressing post off the top of my blog. So, even though I don't have lots to say, I'm writing something to bump it.
I met up with the other DC Metro gals last night. Same as last time, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Of the 9 of us, 6 were at the previous dinner so we were like old buddies. The 3 new people were welcomed with open arms (especially Sunny who seemed to make best friends with even the waiter). We ate, drank (except those knocked up or in 2wws), laughed, talked, took advantage of the beautiful weather and ate ice cream outside, and just enjoyed ourselves.
Here's a little info on the ladies who were in attendance:
Congratulations to Shelby who found out today that she's pregnant with TWINS from their 1st IVF, and to In and Out of Luck who has her 1st sonogram on Wednesday! I got to meet the truly wonderful Bean who I already knew I would like, but confirmed it in person. Ditto for Sunny who is 10 pounds of fun in a 5 pound bag. (Hopefully everyone knows that phrase and recognizes it to be a compliment!) She's hilarious, honest, and just downright great.
Last time, I didn't get to sit near Dmarie but knew I would like her. This time, we were across the table from each other and it was a blast. Go wish her lots of luck with her upcoming cycle! Lea Bee is also starting a cycle, so go send her some love as well. Somehow I have completely etch-a-sketched the name of the incredibly nice non-blogger who joined us, so hopefully LJ or someone will help my feeble memory...
Changing Expectations and Rho couldn't make it, although they had planned to. You ladies were sorely missed, can't wait to see you at the next one! Karen couldn't come for obvious reasons, and Mel ditched us for her family -- how screwed up are your priorities, woman?
Last, and certainly not least is LJ. Once again, she picked a great restaurant and ensured that introductions and conversation flowed nicely (though we don't need much help with that one, we are all pretty chatty). It's a pity for everyone else that they didn't get to join us and sip wine while LJ regaled us with stories about the suckling pig at the Ba.by Ba.rb.ecue. I've told you this already, LJ, but I just think you are the bomb! :-)
Unfortunately we didn't take a picture this time, but hopefully we will next time.
Now I'll leave you with a nice picture I took the other day of the sunset. This is looking out over my back yard (don't mind the shed and garden that needs tending!). It was beautiful and reminded me that even though God isn't busy answering all of my prayers lately, I know He is clearly doing something right up there when I see stuff like this.
