Munch. Munch. Nibble. Nibble. Crunch.

What's that?

That's the sound of me enjoying some lettuce wraps from P.F. Chang's which is exactly what I'll be doing tonight.

(squeals with delight)

Dan and I are going on a date tonight! And all because both kids are sleeping over at Jennifer's house tonight.

Jennifer is my neighbor, my BFF and my blogging buddy.

Her son Colton (Who just so happens to be Peter's BFF - and I know this because a couple of days ago when they were playing at our house, Peter said to Colton, "Do you know who my BFF is?" And Colton said, "Yes! Me!" O.k. Peter didn't use the term "BFF" but he did say "best friend". ) is celebrating his 6th birthday and he is having 3 friends over for a sleepover.

And Jennifer, being the BFF that she is, was kind enough to invite Sarah to join in the sleepover so that her two girls would have someone to play with and so that Dan and I could go out.

Because the kids are sleeping over at Jennifer's house Dan and I can use a gift certificate that we have for P.F. Chang's.

And the kids would have to be sleeping over for us to use this gift certificate because the nearest P.F. Chang's is 35 miles away!

Apparently we live in the middle of nowhere.

And speaking of Jennifer, she is hosting a new feature on her blog.

She has a great craft blog (don't let the name of her blog fool you- she's not crazy) where she shows you step by step all the crafts she's been making with her kids.

And these are real crafts. These aren't Martha Stewart crafts. Not that I've got anything against Martha but when you are doing crafts with your kids, you want your kids to actually be able to do them.

And now on Saturdays she wants to see what you have been making with your kids. It can be something you've made from her site or it can be any other craft you've done with your kids.

All you have to do is write a post on your blog about what you did and link to her "We Made It, Showcase Saturday". (I think she's going to open it up on Fridays and leave Mr. Linky up all weekend.)

Enjoy your weekend, y'all! Is it dinnertime yet?

I LOVE P.F.Changs. The lettuce wraps alone are worth the 35 minute drive. We just ate at the one at the beach during our Girl's Weekend trip.

Have a great time on your date night.
