Happy Hour

Last night I met Ryan and his "drinking buddy" (aka my sister Heidi) at a local watering hole called Diamond Knot Brewery & Alehouse.  It was a rough-and-tough-beer-drinking-peanut-eating-shell-spitting kind of place.  The brewery is on the Mukilteo waterfront right by the ferry.  It was a little bit strange walking into this bar by myself, but I soon spotted Ryan and Heidi.  The beer was great, the service was friendly and we ordered a delicious pizza to share.  

After dinner Heidi came back to our house for a Wii bit of fun!  She and Ryan played Guitar Hero until their eyes hurt.  I'm terrible at that game so I was happy to watch!  Sydney on the other hand did not want Heidi playing Guitar Hero.  She wanted Heidi to play with her.  
Why else would anyone come to visit!

(you can't see it very well, but Sydney has a sock tug toy in her mouth 
and she is trying to get Heidi to play)

Heidi stayed the night and we were treated to Egg Leigh-muffins for breakfast!!!  They were delicious.  Thanks Ryan, breakfast maker extraordinaire, for making breakfast 
and thanks Heidi for coming to play!

Overall, I think I'm a pretty good wife. However, if you ask Ryan he would say that I need to bake cookies more often! If he had it his way there would be a constant supply of baked goods. Unfortunately, I just don't have the time to bake that much. Plus if baked goods are in my house I will eat them!!!

Anyway this past weekend, while Ryan was working on our laundry room (another post for another time), I got out all the ingredients and fired up my wonderful Kitchen Aid stand mixer. (Thanks Heidi!)

My little helper got a little bit close when I was adding the flour!

I made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. My dad doesn't like the chocolate chip part so I baked a few for him before I added the chocolate chips. The recipe I used is the same one my family always uses but the last couple times I've made them they haven't been right. This time they were pretty crunchy. I'm not sure what I did wrong or differently. The good news is that they are still being eaten, and Ryan said he doesn't mind if I keep trying to perfect the recipe!

The last dinner out!

On Saturday night Ryan and I met the rest of "The Family" for dinner at the Melting Pot. It was the last dinner where we could make reservations for just 6. Pretty soon we will be 6 plus a highchair or 6 with a babysitter at the Lothbright home!

We had a wonderful evening! Lots of chatting, laughing, food stealing and the normal mayhem that ensues when the six of us get together! I can't wait for baby Lothbright to make HER debut, but in the mean time it was really fun to have one last dinner as just the 6 of us!
