Great Friend and Good Food

Ever heard of Let's Dish, I love that place!! It's a meal prep store where you go and make some meals to freeze at home for dinner. Food is good and the convienence can't be beat. I'v been doing it every few months since mini #2 joined the family. Did I ever mention that he had colic?? (that's a week of posts all on it's own, I'm currently supressing those memories) If it wasn't for Let's Dish we would have eaten hotdogs every night for those 12 weeks, cooking dinner was just not an option. Ever since those dark days of mommyhood I've come to rely on Let's Dish for a little variety at our table.

Now enough with the PSA for Let's Dish, on to the good friend part of this post. I called a friend whose hubby is also TDY and invited them over for dinner (she has a 2 year old). So, we have 3 toddlers, 2 adults, 1 bottle of white wine and a let's dish dinner to enjoy on my tiny deck. The wine was definitely needed to make the kids bareable. We all had fun but man the kiddos are busy. And, well, DC just doesn't offer affordable housing that's bigger than a shoe box! We both just emailed saying how nice it was to share the evening together and confessed that after we parted each other's company our kids were sent straight to bed with NO bath.

There is always tomorrow for getting clean huh. Besides they'll need another hose down after breakfast anyways.

It has been a long, rainy week doing the "mommy show" for both of us but military spouses stick together. No sulking at home by your lonesome on a Friday night. When husbands go TDY we just say hey, more time for a girls night.
