Dizzy Blonde!!!!

I am beyond thrilled!!!! I made a big mistake and my hubby is still laughing over it. I was about to print our boarding passes for our trip to Florida, when I noticed that we don't leave on Monday, but on Tuesday!!!!! That means I can keep Doodles the cat for one more day!!!! I also don't have to rush with final preparations for Florida, since most of yesterday went belly up as far as doing what needed doing. Our son popped over for a lengthy visit yesterday afternoon and we had a "goodbye" dinner with our son, his new bride, and her parents later that evening. What fun that was and the restaurant was beyond delicious! Our son wanted it to be his goodbye treat, but thank goodness my husband picked up the tab as a Christmas/Chanukah/Goodbye dinner. The bill came to just over $600!!!! We love our food. lol He needs his money for his new house, anyway. So today I will get to those last minute things, go out to lunch with our friends, love Doodles as much as possible, and myLot inbetween. Being a dizzy blonde does have its perks!

Duh! lol Dinner was awesome. Leaving for lunch in a few minutes, and one of my friends is a neighbor of the owner of that restaurant. Will pick her brains about it.

About $100 each is what we spend usually in restaurants here. Your husband was very nice to pay the bill.

It was funny. My husband's mother was describing this farm-to-table tasting menu place that they went to in Asheville, NC for dinner. She said it was "very expensive" and we were ready to hear that it was like $200+ per head. Then she told us that it cost like $60 per person before drinks. We both laughed and said that was very reasonable for a multi-course tasting menu.

One more day of being able to get ready certainly helps! I hope you get some time in to get some relaxation in before leaving - Doodles will be fine with it . Ohhhh, what did you guys have for this celebratory dinner?

I certainly needed the extra day! I've been loving Doodles way too much. I managed to get laundry done and make room in my huge bedroom dresser for the kids when they stay here. I also took a quick nap today after our lunch with friends. Besides two cocktails, which my new daughter-in-law recommended, i had little pita squares with a delectable dipping compote, gratis, then fried artichoke hearts, dumplings, flank steak, sour cream mashed potatoes, a huge variety of roasted vegetables. My daughter-in-law had a delicious vegan dinner. My son had a wonderful vegetarian dinner and dessert. The meat and fish eaters were very happy, too!

@DianneN Wow, well you certainly made the most out of that extra day ! Ohhh, the yummies you had sounds soooooo good . It's wonderful to hear that vegans and non-vegans CAN coexist . . . I have certain vegan friends who would never go near us meat eaters when it comes to eating and if they did, we would never hear the end of it!!
