Confession Number 86: They Are Pretty Good Eggs

One of the things that has really helped Grove feel like our home has been our recent settling in to a local church.  It has been great for all three of us.  Not only do we gain spiritual fulfillment, but we also love the fellowship with other young families.  Each month we decided to get together with this group for "Supper Club".  This month the boys (AKA:  husbands) took charge and decided to treat the wives for Valentine's Day.  Holy cow!  These boys completely outdid themselves.  They not only took over the house of my great friend Brenda, but they cleaned, cooked and arranged child care.  They literally did it all.  Serious brownie points to our little group of overachievers!  Don't boys look sexy in the kitchen????

They even plated the food and threw in a decoration or two...
Okay, so I think Brenda helped them out with the decorations, but hey, I'd rather their focus be on the food anyway.  Boy, was it delicious!  We had shrimp cocktail, salad, steak, salmon, green beans, potato casserole and rolls.  Oh, and they didn't forget the drinks (I only gave go to looks to a couple of the girls as they sipped in front of me) and of course, the desserts......
All you other girls out there can go right ahead and get jealous.  These were hand dipped along with chocolate dipped blackberries, raspberries and pecans.  That's a pregnant girl's Chuck E Cheese right there!  It was wonderful!!  They didn't leave anything out.  They even had roses, complete with little love notes from our Valentine!
I have to say, it was pretty darn sweet!  I think all of us left with a renewed sense of romance for our husbands.  One thing is for sure, this sure put me over the top of my ongoing change of heart regarding Valentine's Day.  We sure are a lucky bunch of ladies!  Don't forget to hug and kiss your Valentine a little extra today!  Happy Heart Day!!
