I wasn't sure how many people we were going to have over since we invited everyone very last minute and Nick's friends have a knack of just showing up later in the day. We knew that Rob and Linda were coming for sure so I was sure to get mimosa supplies. I also got a ton of chicken strips from Safeway. Five pounds to be exact. It turns out that five pounds of chicken strips is A LOT of chicken strips. I had gotten Christopher half a pound last weekend and he said that there were only three strips. So I figured with that few strips I better get a lot and a lot is what I received. It came out in two trays. While they were making my order of strips, I also had piled in two twelve packs of beer, two bottles of champagne, orange juice, frozen buffalo chicken wings, frozen meatballs, and two kinds of chips into my cart. Yeah, I went a little overboard on the food. To top it off, Rob and Linda brought over another twelve pack when they came. I'm having a Halloween dinner this weekend so all the beer will come in handy. Luckily, we managed to get the chicken wings and meatballs into the freezer. I plan to use the chicken wings as "bat wings" and the meatballs as "zombie eyes" so that also worked out pretty well.
Around 4pm I hit the sack for a mimosa-induced hangover nap. You have to love midday hangovers. When I woke up I found out that Rob and Linda had run over to Target to get hair clippers, Nick had played video games, Rob and Linda came back, Rob and Nick walked Emmy, and Linda was down for a nap. We watched a couple hours of Bar Rescue, which is an abnormally addicting show, before heading to Black Bear for a late dinner.

actually very tender. No, I did not finish this.
