Our friend Carmen celebrated her 40th birthday this weekend, and her husband Lasanta threw a huge birthday party at their house Saturday night. Live band (“Outsourced”), great music bartender, dancing.
We invited a bunch of friends over to our house for appetizers, drinks, and dinner ahead of the party. It was a hectic day for us, as we had a Cub Scout popcorn fundraiser that morning, Lily’s dance class, a failed attempt to dump stuff at the county’s recycling day, a house to finish cleaning, food and liquor to buy, and dinner to make.
All before 6:30 pm.
Somehow, as always, we pulled it off. Everything turned out well. Around 8:30 pm, we stumbled down the street to the main event.
The facts gets a little fuzzy after that.
