Another wonderful get together

Last night we were lucky enough to join our bloggy/adoptive friends for a wonderful evening. Kathy was my very first bloggy friend and for months we tried to get together but one thing or another that prevented us us from meeting.

Michelle found out that Kathy and Joel were going to be in town for a seminar so she invited us all over to her place for dinner. After many attempts we finally were able to meet and what a fabulous evening we had! It was worth the wait to meet Kathy and Joel, they are a truly fabulous, funny, wonderful couple.

Michelle made the yummiest salad best veggie manicotti. If I'm singing the praises of vegetable you know it had to be good since veggies ain't my thing. Then for dessert it was fruit and chocolate, you can't beat that. Both Mark and Michelle are very gracious hosts and of course we had a great time with them as we always to.

Kathy then surprised us with this adorable blanket that they made from scratch. It's an original Kathy and Joel creation! It is so soft and very warm. I know the baby will love it as much as we do. Thank you very much, we both love it.



Thank you all once again for such a wonderful evening. We had a blast!
