Ugh….it’s been a weekend from hell. I’ll tell more about that later, though. This past week, I’ve just felt like I was down in a hole, and I didn’t realize I was there until I couldn’t see out. Sarah had posted about feeling blue, or “crabby.” Apparently, it was catching.
Looking at pictures from our night out of fun and dancing definitely made me feel better.
Just thinking about that cocktail makes me happy. And so do these girls:
In addition to cocktails, we also had a nice spread of snacks, including Heather’s delicious pretzel brownies (though I didn’t have any cherries). They were super yum! You should most definitely run over to her site and make them, ASAP. In case you didn’t know…Heather loves butter 🙂
It was quite a spread. We also had a yummy spinach dip fail:
Courtesy of me. I mean, it was still tasty. Who doesn’t love burnt cheese? I used my new favorite technique of adding fat-free yogurt instead of mayo (or sour cream). This was actually not too bad, considering I used fat free and 1/3 less fat cream cheese, part skim mozzarella, and fat free yogurt (I’m sure Sarah is having a heart attack with all the fat free dairy ;). In addition, it had spinach and garlic. And love. I managed to use this in another dish later on the next week, on top of some grilled chicken. It’s all about being creative with leftovers!
After filling our bellies, we decided to work it off over at Nana Funk’s with some dancing. One of the fun things about this bar is that they play classic music from the 80s and 90s. And sometimes the 70s, as was made clear by the BeeGees blasting on my way out of the ladies’ room.
We made the decision to walk from our new apartment over to the bar, which was just a few blocks. It made for some fun pictures on the trip back.
Also…when you take four girls, add 8 high heels (well, 6—Brandy was smart and wore flip flops), and some alcohol…two blocks turns into two miles. Our dogs were barking something ferocious.
A good time was had by all. And even though my heels and feet are littered with blisters and it looks like I have something of an impetigo on my feet, I can’t wait to do it again.
Do you go dancing often? Go out with the girls? I love to get dressed up to go all out with my ladies.
