Fundraising and a "Girls Night Out"

These pictures are out of order, but I'll go ahead and tell you what went 'down' these past few days!  On Friday night, Shawn, her daughter McKenzie and me went to see "Twilight" - McKenzie was reading (or has read about 10x) the entire series and so I picked up the first book and had read the entire series within 2 weeks.  COMPLETELY addicting -- not a masterpiece, but your typical romance book for young adults -- yes, I said young adults!! 

We went to eat at Cheesecake Factory first - my all time FAV-O-RITE place to eat.  It was so yummy.  Then we headed to the movies, walked in, and I actually commented that the line wasn't that bad --- OH YEAH RIGHT --- it was completely wrapped around and we had to wait a good 20 minutes before they let us into the theatre.  BUT it was so worth it.  There was a group of older ladies (I'm talking grannies) sitting next to us -- it was so funny.  I loved it though.  I said to Shawn on the way home "You know, he's cute and all, but I think I'd be scared to date a vampire - with all that comes along with it, ya know" and she said to me "Do you realize you just said that out loud??" -- it was funny!!  

In the movies:

me and Kinz -- my FD (Foster Daughter -- we love her)

Eating at Cheesecake Factory:

Thursday night, Shawn, me and Rebecca went to support our friend Danielle and the Mom's Club of Lithia fundraiser.  It was a BUNCO night and we played to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  I had only played BUNCO one time before and it was a really long time ago -- but I was an old pro by the end of the night!  I LOVED IT!!!

Here we are at the end of the night with all of our raffle winnings:
I won 3/5, Shawn won both of the ones she wanted, and Rebecca won a TRIP TO NC!!!

Shawn about to roll -- she got the lei because she rolled a 'bunco' -- there were 2 leis that went around all night, by the end of the night, whoever had the leis on, went home with a prize!

That's all for now -- Chad and I are going to church tonight to participate in "Feed the Bay" and then off to a friends house for dinner -- should be lots of fun and I'll post pics tomorrow!
