Remember this group?
We went out with them last night for Berry's birthday (the blonde). We also had another couple with us this time.
The plan was to go to El Guapo's Cantina (a roof top restaurant in downtown Tulsa), meeting at 7:00.
Rick had been in New Jersey and New York this week and I had been home with the kids. The kids were just fine, but I was just ready for a night out! When he got home from his trip, mid-afternoon, he told me he was going to go work out in our yard and we would need to leave by 6:30 for dinner. I said, "The heck you say! Get in the shower! We're leaving as soon as you get ready!"
We ran a couple of errands and picked up a birthday gift and then headed to the restaurant. We got there around 5:30 and found a bar on the second floor. It was so nice to sit with Rick for a while and just have a couple of cocktails and some chips and salsa. Ahhhh! That was much-needed.
Then our friends showed up and the party began!
First of all, Berry's husband wore that ridiculous "I Love My Wife" shirt. (Seriously, I threw Rick's away after the Amazing Race.) But it certainly got the laughs started!
Then we went up to the roof to our table. We ate and drank and laughed harder than we have in a long, long time! What a fun night!!!
Here are a couple of pics of the girls. The only picture I have of the guys looks like we were eating dinner with a bunch of gay guys. Seriously, the picture was not flattering for any of them. But look how hot us girls are! (Thanks for these, Angela!)
After we left the restaurant, this late 30-something group decided we weren't ready to call it a night yet. So, we found another bar downtown. I've never gone to any of the bars there. This one was, um, interesting. Honestly, I looked around and thought about how thankful I am that hanging out in bars is not something I regularly do on Friday nights. It was fun! But, we're just too old for that!
We headed home around 11:00 p.m. and were in bed by midnight.
And I had something this morning that I haven't had in years, a real life hangover headache. And I only had four drinks all night.
I am old.
