Long time, no Blog

I had a FANTASTIC weekend with my girlfriends from the D.C. area. We have an Academy Awards tradition of getting together, but this year I almost had to cancel. Due to a strange set of circumstances, I am taking care of not just ONE, but TWO dogs. Here they are ... acting all cute and friendly before tearing each other and my entire house apart.

So the girls arrived on Saturday, and we spent the afternoon shopping between cocktails. Here we are at Can Can in Carytown.

But the weekend is not entirely without work! We were also charged with updating our celebrity dinner tables. This is also somewhat of a tradition. For years we've been talking about who we could invite to our Dream Dinner Party. The results are below. For reference, I ripped off a picture of our weekend from Suburban Daddy, who was one of the two guys who had to play Mr. Mom this weekend as a result of the Academy Awards. (I wonder how many other Dads there are out there that were forced to suffer the same fate?)

Anyway, I digress. My table is the upper left. I am also in the upper left of the picture below ... Liz is in the upper right, Meredith (Suburban Mommy) in the front right, and Lori in the front left. If you have any questions about the reasoning behind these guests and/or the particulars of the seating arrangements, just let me know. There was a lot of discussion around these choices! (Particularly Liz' choice of Don Rickles - Are you kidding me??)

Had an awesome time this weekend! Great idea posting the dinner tables - now Liz will have to explain to EVERYONE about Don Rickles! ;-)

I still remember the time a few years ago at Oscar night at our house with this crew. First I was told I wasn't "catty" enough during the red carpet preview. Then I was promptly "shushed" for talking during the acceptance speeches. Then banished to my room.
