Ear Piercing

I had my ears pierced in early elementary school, maybe first grade. I LOVE earrings. Maybe it is the eighties girl in me, but I absolutely love wearing earrings, and the bigger the better. Unfortunately, I am allergic to most earrings, so I can only wear most earrings for a couple of hours. But I continue to buy and wear them, and I suffer the consequences.

Amy is starting to ask about earrings. She is five and will start kindergarten in the fall. So, should I let her get her ears pierced?

I should read my own blog before I post!!!

Dinner Party Palooza

Way back in December, we were invited to an aquaintance's house for dinner. We knew this couple through soccer, and Dave coached with Jon for the fall season. The other two coaches and their wives were also invited. We went and had a wonderful time.

Since then, we have been to two other dinner parties with these three couples, and a few nights out or in with a subset. It has been a long time since Dave and I have had couple friends. It has been a long time since we had a social life at all. And, it is so much fun!

This weekend, it is our turn to host the origian dinner party group. I am making angelhair pasta with a fresh tomato and blue cheese topping, and fresh bread. Ok, I may just buy the bread. Appetizers, salad, and dessert are being brought by the other couples. I have several bottles of wine. I am not a wine enthusiast, so I am hoping what I have is ok.
