Well my birthday weekend proved to be a tiring one. Dinner and drinks with friends on Friday, then out again with a couple girlfriends on Saturday night uptown. I have never seen Charlotte so busy. A
big enormous Halloween party was going on at one of the bars; the streets were packed with Bills fans in town for the game; and a black tie event was happening at the theater. What a mix of characters. Evening gowns and tux, to Bills paraphernalia, to the wildest costumes you can imagine. It was quite a show. After a late dinner we grabbed a front row window seat at an Irish Pub to people watch. The best people watching event I’ve seen in a while. After two very late nights in a row, yesterday was a low-key day with just the girls (Daddy was gone all day with his fraternity bro’s at the Panthers/Bills game). So after some breakfast and playing with their new goody bags from the babysitter and her family, we headed to the front porch to hang some spider webbing for Halloween. The girls picked a lovely color of green instead of the white Mommy would have picked.
Later we hit Sports Connections (where Evelyn’s 5th b-day party was) with my friend Jean and her kids Ethan and Emelia. The kids bounced hard so we grabbed some food with four very tired kiddos. Probably a mistake in hind sight since mine were so well behaved, not!
