Last night was Bunco night in my neck of the woods.  In our usual manner, new friend A swung by for me, my wine and my pimento cheese dip and we made our way to this once a month, festive night out full of dice, free-flowing drinks, mouth-watering eats and highly entertaining neighbor ladies.  Also as usual, on our arrival, the host’s home was a-buzz with the giddy conversation of women – high on a night away from Honeys and littles.  After a bit of free socialization, we grab a table, the bell rings and the game begins.

And that’s precisely when things departed from “usual.”  I broke out my brand spanking new Buncolator app, a score keeping device I learned about from always-in-the-know Callie over at calliespondence.  Genious!  After all, when you are in the midst of rolling, gossiping, wining and dining, keeping score can be a bit cumbersome.  Well, problem solved, ladies!  I must say that the crowds were impressed.

If you don’t already play Bunco, I do insist that you gather up your girls, mix up a few divine cocktails, bake up your best hour d’oeurves and give it a whirl. 

Have a glorious day!  I plan to.

PS. Don’t forget to leave a comment on this post to help grow our March of Dimes donation by three-and-a-half dollars.  And while I’m asking, please keep my cousin’s baby girl, born at just 26 weeks yesterday, in your thoughts and prayers.

While pregnancy for many (outside of my family at least) is nine months worth of excited anticipation, purposeful planning and a hint of nervousness, for my sweet little sister pregnancy was full of issues the doctors couldn’t explain, immense worry and cautious preparation.  To say things were rough is pretty generous.  She couldn’t gain weight… Read More

Cookie, formerly knows as “the best baby in the world”, has recently (and temporarily) been demoted to just “baby.”  That little stinker has not only been into everything, but has developed quite a dramatic, strong willed personality to boot.  Here is my supporting documentation for the baby’s demotion: Climbing out of crib I’m not sure… Read More
