Girl's weekend

I had some friends from our days in Milwaukee come in town this weekend. It was so fun to be able to get out for a few girl's nights out!  I was telling Ryan we should do this more often - me going out every night living my rock-and-roll lifestyle and him staying home to watch the kids. And then it's even less painful cause we don't have to pay for two of us when we go out, just one! Total win-win.

It was really fun having them in town though. And it was so refreshing to remind me that - oh yeah, there are normal people out there! In fact, most of the U.S. is normal! I just happen to live in Miami....

(Speaking of, darn that Miami wind, can't ever take a good picture.)


Loved the beach artwork someone left:


Nice scenery:


Lots of eating out and exploring fun Miami areas:

















Hanging out at Crazy Pianos in Coconut Grove

and being really amused watching this "date" -



Not only the dual texting (no wonder you're both like 40 and single), but this woman thought she was seriously Pamela Anderson. Every move she made was all sultry and coy and cat-like. And she would do this seated shimmying to the music while she ate... my, oh my but she was entertaining. Not to mention the fact that it was really amusing filling in our own versions of what they might both be texting - oh my gosh, get me out of here... or she's hot so I don't care that she can't say a sentence without wobbling her head and batting her eyelashes... yeah, he's pretty cute, but wow my bum keeps sticking to this seat cause my outfit hardly covers it....

Anyway, good times. Anyone else want to come visit? I'm surprised how few visitors we've actually had for living in such a vacation destination!

Safire said...

Sounds like you guys had a blast! And maybe you've scared visitors off with all your crazy Miami talk. ;)

I enjoyed seeing the pics of you and your friends, particularly my daughter! You haven't had a post in almost ten days. Whats up with that?
