We had our very good friends come stay with us this weekend from the Chicagoland area. The kind of friends that provide wonderful, nonstop belly laughs, that often lead to peed pants. We don’t get to see them nearly enough. The two husbands exchanged secret emails prior to the visit to arrange a post-Valentine dinner out at a nice restaurant. Just for us grown ups. AWESOME.
I’m not really adventurous in the oceanic eating experience, but I felt like being a big girl and trying something new. Scallops. And, I loved them. All two and a half of them before I had an allergic reaction and had to go to the ER. After several shots of benadryl, steroids, and epinephrine, I was free to go. Do I know how to kick things up a notch er what? Luckily for us, it was a Mardi Gras freakfest in the ER, so we had lots of quality people watching.
This morning, Ben thought it might be interesting to let Ellie in on our adventure. Here’s how it went down:
Ben: Ellie, you know while you were sleeping last night, we had to take Mommy to the hospital?
Ellie: Awwwwwww. Have you seen my other pillow?
