I couldn't even Frag. What the heck?!
So, this has to be rushed since Blogger was down all day yesterday. (gives Blogger the death look)
I was going to have a Girls' Night Out tonight with my BFFs from high school, but one of them is sick so we have to postpone. Bummer!
BUT! It will still be a great night. You see.....
Tonight is my oldest son Tim's Senior Prom. His tux is rented, his girlfriend's dress is purchased. He is going with his girlfriend, his friend Zack, and Zack's date. Last Thursday we were talking about where they were going to go for their pre-Prom dinner. I made a few suggestions of some of the nice restaurants in town.
And then, earlier this week, I got a text message from Tim. He asked me if I would cook chicken & dumplings for all of them on Friday night, and said that's what they all want to do for their pre-Prom dinner.
And I melted.
As y'all may know, especially if you read my Southern Loving Food Blog, I love to cook. And for me, it's more than just preparing a meal. Food is a way of taking care of my family, showing love, celebration........it's love on a plate. And the fact that they came up with this idea on their own, chose to do this for a special occasion, and are all looking forward to it so much (they have all told me that, separately, except for Zack's date, whom I don't know)......I am one proud mama. In fact, I'm kind of weepy about the whole thing, hopefully I won't embarass myself!
Oh - and both boys have not only offered but INSISTED on paying me.
So, I would not miss this chance for the world. Who could resist this face?
He's 18 years old. He graduates from high school next month. (I'm going to be a freaking WRECK.)
He's my firstborn and he's grown up in the blink of an eye. In my heart, he'll always be my baby boy. So it may not sound like a huge deal, but it means so much to me. And I can't wait!
Tomorrow my littles have their last soccer game, then the Tournaments will be the following weekend.
And Saturday afternoon is my niece's wedding shower! YAY!
Hope y'all have a great weekend! Visit Mrs 4444's for more Friday Fragments.
