Light blogging? Oh, yeah, baby – we can do that! Between travel all last week and Melissa’s birthday this weekend, there just wasn’t time enough to blog.
We kicked off the birthday festivities Friday night at the in-laws, with an Italian dinner filled with so much cheesey goodness that I woke up at 5am on Saturday – not with a hangover, but with the mozzarella sweats. If you’ve never experienced them, or if you don’t think such a thing is possible, then you really need to spend a month in Tuscany or Sicily. Or – who am I kidding? – even if you do believe in it.
Followed that up on Saturday night with dinner at Walter’s Bistro here in Colorado Springs. The Fall Menu is not to be missed. If you’re in town the next couple weeks, drop in and order the Mushroom Fricassee appetizer. You won’t be sorry.
Sunday was brunch with friends at a Jewish deli, followed by Melissa’s annual Steve-Cooked Birthday Dinner. Add it all up, and I’m sure we each took in well over 15,000 calories in the course of 48 hours. At seven-plus months gone, Melissa can handle it – but as of Sunday night, I appear to be about 4 months gone.
Now that I’ve waddled my way downstairs to the computer, it’s time to play catch-up with the news. Back in a flash.
