Me, Jenny, Tara and Andrea. Andrea is holding her youngest Taralee who apparently was having some trouble keeping her eyes open with the flash. I do not EVEN want to discuss how enormous I look in this picture. What the Hell? Have I not been working out? Is my sore hooty hoo just a figment of my imagination? Jenny on the other hand looks HOT, at least that's what some guys on the light rail told her yesterday.
Here they is, Tara and Andrea. Tara and I always had a music connection. She's some strange anomaly in their family. She sings, and she plays the piano, while noone else in her family is musical at all. Who knows how these things happen. But, I'll never forget when she got the music to "Joanie Loves Chachi", she and I totally sat around singing that. We totally rocked it with our 12 and 15 year old selves, I'm sure of it. She also got a cool book of all these TV songs, which I was always so impressed by. I might also add that Tara is the one who taught me that sour cream was totally delicious in chili. It's the little things that make the impressions.
In this shot they're looking on as Brooklyn is going through Taras lipstick purse. You read it right...Tara had an entire little makeup bag FULL of lipsticks and glosses. And as we all know, Brooklyn is Obseeeessseeed (please read with a trilly opera tone) with lippy (which apparently Tara is too). Tara kindly allowed her to go through it and she proceeded to put on every single item in the purse.
It was so fun to meet Andreas baby Taralee for the first time. She's a few months younger than Maggie and she seems to have a lot of spunk. The wierd thing was, her oldest daughter Bryndee was there and she's 15. The last time I probably saw Bryndee she was just older than Taralee is now. Yeah, we're awesome at getting US together, just not ever seeing the kids. This was Tara and Andreas first time meeting Maggie as well.
By the way, Maggie is apparently a little Feta fiend. She lerrrrved my feta dressing on my salad, and she quite enjoyed the turkey feta pita I got as well.
I'm so glad for fun impromptu dinner dates. Let's do it again sometime.
Pitas and parties,
