I may or may not have mentioned in the recent past about how much a adore this amazingly, charming and funny lady, and her equally incredible, LMOA funny sister.
In fact, I've been petitioning to be adopted into their family. That's how much I love them.
Additionally, I absolutely love, adore and admire this beautiful, amazing woman, who just happens to be my very best friend, and visiting teaching partner. And this super awesome girl, who I've known for, like, Ever, who is my former next door neighbor and now one of my favorite blog besties. And this super, gorgeous rock star, who I totally want to be when I grow up, and who I have recently seen naked. And of course, this lovely lady, who thinks she's leaving us to move away to CANADA!? I will miss you, so KEEP BLOGGING! And this beautiful girl, who I don't know very well, but would like to get to know better. And I met this sweet lady for the first time, and I'm excited to get to know her better! I also got to meet Denae and Amber's sister, Kim, and Denae's beautiful daughter, whom I affectionately refer to as "mini-DeNae" and her friend Christy, who NEEDS to start a blog, because she is just a hoot! (yeah, I said "hoot." Sue me.)

What do all of these amazing ladies have in common?
Well, I got to be so privileged to have dinner with them on Friday night. I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. My cheeks were still hurting Saturday morning when I got up to run.
First, I had the time of my life, getting checked out and flirted with on the ride down in the back of Sarah's smokin' Jeep.
And in typical Sherrie fashion, I had to humiliate myself over..and over again.
First, when someone mentioned my little "eating disorder?" First of all people, it's called getting HEALTHY!! Since when is going off sugar bad for you? (There's my soap box..that's all I'm gonna say). So, anyway, I must've gotten drunk from all the ice water I was drinking because somebody mentioned something about me having dysmorphia. My instincts kicked in. My defenses were up. And without thinking, I reached up and totally slugged Denae right in the arm. Amber shouts out, "That sounded like it connected!" I was mortified. So I commence in diligently rubbing Denae's arm, and apologizing profusely. She kept saying it's OK, but I'm know in her mind she was thinking, "Geez, lady, get up off me!"
Mini-Denae, Denae, Melissa (notice how she's huddled in protectively between me and Denae--post bitch slap), Me, Sarah, MB-ducking?
So, again, Denae, I'm soooo SORRY for decking you. I'm sure you'll never want to sit by me again.
Then, in the midst of a very proper and polite discussion about visits to Brazil, and the right time and place to have "the talk" with our children, I blurt out the word TAMPON, right as the server walks in. The look on his face told me he'd heard it. I'm sure I was 10 shades of red, so I just ducked my head, and shut my mouth.

My the end of the night, these amazing ladies became, if not already were, my closest friends. I love them to pieces and I can't wait until we can meet up again!
Motherboard, Kim, Amber (aren't they all just gorgeous?)
The Saturday after I got to go have lunch with Erin!, but I'll write about that later....
