I wish that I could even begin to list all of the fantastic dishes that Alicia (and her wonderful mom, who I swear is a dog whisperer) prepared for us. The spread was long and tasty, with something for everyone. After a busy week at work, I was looking forward to a cold drink on the deck. Apparently so were the dogs, as you can see from above! The pups wandered around all evening, and I think that they had more fun than we did. My dog, Lizzie, was a bit overwhelmed by the other 5 but she started to warm up by the end. Maybe she'll be a little more receptive to Bacon's forward advances next time! Bacon is Suzanne's little black Boston Terrier pictured above- and our source of entertainment all night. That boy has got some ENERGY.
It was a fun Friday evening, and just what I needed during this busy time at work. The evening ended with lots of sweet treats, prepared by some of the other amazing blog ladies. We all know that I can not cook, so my contribution was wine. I can always be counted on for that. Trust me- you don't want me to bring a dish to pass at any party you are hosting. It was great to see old blends (blogger friends) and new. I love that there is always at least one new face at our dinners. It's wonderful to see the girls that I am getting to know well, but the chance to meet new Cleveland bloggers is fun. I always leave our monthly gatherings looking forward to the next one! Thanks again for hosting, Alicia (and Grady, of course!).
