and Millie came over this morning. We hung out a bit trying to decide
where to have lunch. Since we took them to The Spectrum on their last
visit, I thought they might enjoy Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
It was a beautiful day to walk around and enjoy the warm weather.
Millie told me that Rich has never been to Hooters before and wanted
to check it out...your wish is my command. =D
we drove down to the Boardwalk/Fun Zone and took the ferry across
to Balboa Island. I love riding the ferry to Balboa. Boardwalks/Piers
are a big passion of mine. I don't know what it is...but I absolutely
love being by the water. It's so calming. =)
Aric and I hosted a BBQ for Rich, Millie, and our usual group of friends tonight. We stopped off at Costco and the market on our way back.
who I haven't seen since my wedding came over to join us. It's a small
world I tell ya! She and I have been friends since '97...but she's
also a long time friend of Millie's. So it was great being all together.
The rest of the evening was spent hanging out and enjoying everyone's company. I was so busy playing host that I realized I barely got to talk to anyone.....between making sure everyone was comfy, watching the kids, and keeping damage control to a minimun in the kitchen, I rarely had a chance to sit down and just chill with my friends. It didn't help that I'm obsessive-compulsive either. Never knew I had ocd until reading Winnie's journal...and realized that THAT was SOOOOO ME! I have to make sure everything is in order before I can sit down and enjoy the evening. =P
hung out, talked, and watched the Golden Globe Awards. I caught bits
and pieces here and there and enjoyed seeing all the beautiful gowns
everyone wore. Although some were downright hideous (ie...Lara Flynn
Boyle). Good gawd, girl! *YUCK!*
of our friends left around midnight. Rich, Millie, and Lucille stayed
a bit longer to chat and left an hour later.
