Yesterday was my friend Kristin’s birthday. She said that birthdays were not that big of a deal in her family, but they were in mine so I asked if she would like to go out for dinner. We ended up with a party of 19 (including kids)! We went to Copper River Grill in Nicholasville. It was a ton of fun! We split up into a boys and girls table. It was precious because we had the “big” girls; Kristin, Emily Ellsworth (shout out to a loyal reader), Kelli, Maggie, Jen and myself, but sandwiched in the middle of the table were the little girls; Ellie, Molly, Lucy and Kristin’s little girl Laney. There were lots of laughs and tons of smiles so I will just highlight a few.
Laney prayed for the meal and it was beyond precious. She thanked God for her mommy and prayed that her mommy would know that she is such a good mommy. All the mommy’s were teary eyed when she said amen. Again we laughed all night, but the “icing on the cake” (get it birthday lingo) was when they brought Kristin her free ice cream dessert the server also brought a BIG brownie with ice cream, caramel, and chocolate sauce as well as a HUGE bowl of banana pudding covered in whip cream. It was comical because when he sat that down one of the ladies said, “Is that a bowl of whip cream?”. It was just funny because that is what it really looked like.
We were all caught a little off guard because none of us had ordered dessert until the server said they were “from the men the next table over with a wink”. I was very cute and made me feel like I was dating again when I looked over at my sweet husband and he just smiled and gave me a little wink of his own.
