Out on the town

This past Saturday, my hubby and I went to a birthday party. Our nieces mother, Sharon, celebrated her 60th birthday. The celebration was a surprise party given to her by her husband & her 5 daughters. And everyone was asked to wear their semi-formal best. I don't know about you, but I love to get dressed up. Every once in a while, it's just fun to be able to wear something other than jeans or pajama pants...lol. And even more fun to be able to dress up and go out in public with other ADULTS...lol.

Anyway, to make a long story short, the food was awesome and I HEARD that the Martini's were delicious (I don't drink anything stronger than Dr. Pepper or Gingerale!) Everyone looked beautiful and the surprise went off without a hitch.

Oh, and the most fun part about this was, hubby and I spent the entire evening out. My mother in law, kept the kids for us and we got a hotel for the evening. Woo HOO!!! So after the party, we got to spend the night in a beautiful hotel room, without having to hear a little knock at our bedroom door at 4:30 in the morning saying, "DADDY...I've gotta potty...REALLY BAD!!" :-)

Well, here are some pix from our evening.


Here's me and my hubby. We clean up pretty good, don't we?

This is our nephew, Derron and his lovely wife, Shirlene. It was Shirlene's mother who was the guest of honor.

My hubby and his nephew, Derron. These guys are just like brothers. I love to see them having a good time together.

Me and Shirlene, sharing a rare moment.

Here's all the guys. 4 of these guys are Shirlene's brothers in law. The others are her husband, her uncle and her mothers husband.

Well, that's all the pix I have to share for now. I'm waiting to get some more. Oddly enough, I didn't get one single picture of the birthday girl or Shirlene's other 4 sisters. As soon as I get them, I'll share. They are some BEAUTIFUL women!!!

Thanks again to Derron & Shirlene for inviting us to such a special event. And a special thanks to Sharon, for welcoming us in the celebration of her birthday. Love you guys!!!
