A few weeks ago, some of my house church ladies thought it would be fun to go to The Melting Pot for their Girls Night Out night (Thursdays through April). I will never pass up a Melting Pot date especially when I get to hang out with some great girls! It was one of those nights that you look at the clock and gasp because time flew by. We talked and laughed about everything from kids, jobs, goals, annoying people, Bon Qui Qui. You get the idea!
It was Michelle's (on the right) very first time and I think I even heard a "there's a party in my mouth" from her a couple of times!!
I even won a Gift Certificate (since it was Girls' Night Out they were running some great gift raffles) to the My Pilates Studio!! HOLLA!! Jenny is so jealous! I was soooo hoping to win it! And had to be gracious about it when I did :-)! hee hee
Then if that wasn't enough, I got to do it all over again this week. This time with some of my favorite bloggers! Thanks to the Melting Pot and Katie (who was the brain child of the event), we got to indulge in their cheese (with assorted breads, veggies, chips and apples) and chocolate (with assorted fruits, cheesecake, and other wonderful goodies). OH. MY. WORD!!
Twice in two weeks - my mouth and tummy were in Heaven! And of course, you can't get a lot of bloggers together without it being a fun and loud evening.
And of course, Jenny had to pick on me the whole. night. long about not smiling "like I like her" when we take pictures together.
To quote her from her account of the evening:
...Cortney, in all our pictures, always looks mildly happy to be with me, and I always look really happy to be with her. So we were trying to mimic each others expressions and reverse roles in the last two shots and well…it kind if all got out of hand!
So we tried to reverse roles and got laughing so hard we couldn't stop:
And after several takes, this is what we came up with. Jenny is "smiling" like I do in pictures and I am cheezing like Jenny does.
After we gorged - we may or may not have requested seconds on the strawberries - we got to tour the place. My favorite: the wine rooml. Yummy! I don't remember the exact number of different wines they house, but holy cow it is A LOT! And thanks to my wonderful server from my first visit last week, he found me the best tasting German Riesling I have ever had!! But don't ask me what the name of it is :-) because I don't remember. Monday night I just asked for the "good German one" because I am high class and all!
What a treat! To get to go to the Melting Pot twice in two weeks!! I am already dropping *subtle* hints like this one to Jeremy, that my birthday is coming up in just a few short weeks and hopefully we can snuggle in one of the "couples boothes" like Jenny and Andrea did:
Keeping fingers crossed that I will be enjoying some yummy fondue goodness in a few short weeks. Thanks to the Melting Pot (Girls Night Out) and Katie for creating an addict!
