Friday Fun

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Brent and I are richly blessed with amazing friends. Not a day goes by when I don't miss our midwest buddies (I'm including Cincinnati and Indy in that :), but the people we've met here are an answer to prayer. I never thought we would meet such good, fun people so quickly, or that within 6 months I would feel like I've known them for years. As my mom (and Girl Scout leader) used to sing, "Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold."

Last Friday evening, like most Friday evenings, started with a walk on Seven Mile Beach with Jeremy and Sheena.

Shot taken at Lime Tree Bay before we left - Brent said "you're wearing a lot of colors today." What can I say? I was born in the 80's. I will forever love neon.

Sheena, Jeremy, Brent, and Walter

Another glorious beach sunset. Of course, I haven't seen one yet where I say, "eh, that was just ok..."

After our walk we headed to Jenn and Nate's. Nate had the brilliant idea to do breakfast for dinner. Music to my ears (and stomach).

Since we were already doing breakfast for dinner, we decided to make it a pj party. One of the many reasons I love Jenn - she ironed her pajama pants for the dinner.

The quality of this next picture isn't great, but it makes me laugh. Sheena was worried that my picture-taking would capture her just sitting and watching, so she started looking "busy" at the counter. I love that she is pouring the juice with the cap on!

Ladies - this is how you do it. Jeremy on pancake duty, Brent making scrambled eggs, and Nate handling the bacon.

The pancakes were cooked to perfection - including the blueberry and chocolate chip variations.

Cute, cute

The perfect evening ended with a lively game of taboo. Of course, the girls whooped the boys :)
