Ten Things

1. Three cousins after school, Kate showing off the new skirt I bought for her, Luke getting comfy at a Sunday dinner, and me and my boys before school one morning.

2. Being creative, Riley’s collection of drawings from an app on the iPad, cone fingers, and switched up dinosaurs.

3. Fun meals out! Dinner at Boulevard with some of the girls on my R+F team, back to school luncheon with Dana at Andy’s, Guys and Dolls (and dinner at Gendusa’s before!) with Karen, and 2nd grade moms dinner at Vincent’s.

4. A rainbow for Claire, mixed up socks, an unwanted visitor (Rory found him in the half bath before school one morning!), and Rory with a really big carrot.

5. Riley showing off the impressive Lego weapon he created.

Unfortunately, he threw up at school the very next day and ended up vomiting 20 times in 6 hours. So awful.

6. This cracked me up.

7. SCR fundraiser at Mooyah! We saw Ms. Paulin and Ms. Cobb there, and Riley was ecstatic. Oh, and both boys actually ate their hamburgers normally!

Nopsi’s Birthday, Hello Dawlin, and 2nd Grade Moms Dinner

Nopsi’s birthday is on September 25, so we celebrated at Sunday dinner the day before. The birthday boy doesn’t eat dessert, but he does like a good martini. So Kenny worked really hard to create a dessert martini buffet for us to all sample. We had 6 offerings (plus port): chocolate, praline, butterscotch, almond joy, salted caramel, and reese’s. So much fun!

Last Friday Nola and Nopsi kept the boys overnight so Kenny and I could have a fun night out. They slept under the dining room table again and had a great time.

We went with Dana and David and Diana and Jamey to dinner at Gendusa’s and then to Rivertown to see Hello, Dawlin. The show was touted as a rib-tickling spoof on Broadway, New Orleans-style. Local performers Ricky Graham, Varla Jean Merman, and Sean Patterson blew through more than 30 well-known Broadway shows in a fast-paced, straight-through, 90-minute musical revue with classic New Orleans twists. Nola was the one who actually told me to see it; she and Nopsi saw it back in the spring and loved it. The show was so popular that they revived it for a handful of encore performances in September. I’m so glad we went; we all laughed so hard and thoroughly enjoyed it.

After the show, we went to a bar called Shenanigans to see the Funky Beans play their first gig in a very long time. It was great to see those guys on stage again and hang out with friends we hadn’t seen for a while. It was a really great(and late!) night.

Dana and I also had fun plans the next night. We got together with a group of SCR 2nd grade moms for dinner at Vincent’s. There were 17 of us, and we enjoyed a really nice meal in one of the restaurant’s private rooms. Vincent himself even made a few appearances, and he offered us complimentary Limoncello at the end of the night. Can’t beat that!
