Birthday week: Part Deux

We left off at the Noontime Knitters.  After a fun afternoon of cupcakes and beading, I went off to Knit Night with the Park Slope Knitters group that I’ve recently been attending.  I have finally, FINALLY found a local group that I really like.  Here are Norma and Marta chillin.

Then we were busy running our mouths and fingers were flying while Esmie snapped some pix.

Whenever I’m with these ladies, I laugh my ass off so I end up half-hoarse most of the time.  LOVE EM!!!!!!!

And, guess who’s also a member?!

Maria aka The ShizzKnit!!  Imagine my surprise when Maria walks in.  I was like, “Hey!!!  I know you!!!”  She said her name was Maria but I was like nope…doesn’t ring a bell.  I said what’s your tag on the forums.  The minute she said ShizzKnit, it all clicked.  When I said Rosi G., she immediately said OOOH Necia and Chante!!!!  :o)  She remembered.   HEHEHEHE

On Friday, I went to the 2nd Annual Men Stink and Work Sucks BBQ at a friend’s house in NJ.  We all take the day off from work and have a girls’ day.  Lots of food, talk, and, of course, DRINK!!!  WOO HOO!!!  I was EXHAUSTED by the time I got home that evening and promptly fell asleep.

Saturday, I took the kids school shopping and afterwards met up with Norma and Marta at Applebee’s for a birthday dinner.  YUMMMMM!!  I loves me some Applebee’s!!!

We wandered around Brooklyn later and sat at an outdoor Cafe knitting and chatting.

Well, that’s the end of my birthday week!  I had LOTS and LOTS of fun and it will DEFINITELY be a very memorable birthday, one of the happiest of my life, thanks to all my friends.
