We had a fantastic visit with Lee and Zoe! Morgan and I were thrilled to spend some time with so many of the families that we speak to online. Zoe, Lulu, and Amos are all such wonderful little kids. Morgan could not stop talking about his new friends...

It's been a while since I've posted a great recipe--and this one from Cooking Light is our new summer favorite. For speed, I modified the recipe at home--using a bottled light Champagne Viniagrette that I found at the grocery store. Believe it or not...I don't always have an open bottle of white wine to mix in to salads :)
The salad is cool, fruity, and delicious with all of the summer ripe fruits and tart cheese with crunchy almonds on top. Serve with some grilled chicken and artisan bread it makes an easy meal.

So um...since we've been parents something has definitely changed in our social lives. The truth is, we've gone from the couple who goes out every weekend and some week nights to those people that actually know what day shows come on TV and rarely leave the house.
We've talked about it--why don't our child free friends want to hang out?? Who wouldn't love a toddler friendly dinner complete with Morgan spitting his food back on the plate as a grand finale? It's a far cry from trendy restaurant life and cocktails! Heck...even the time I volunteered to do a hash run with one of Jeremy's friends didn't pan out. For three hours I ran around the desert thinking...I should be home...I should be home...
It's not that parents don't want to have fun. We do! It's just that our social networks need to change and it is rather hard to meet parents because we are all...well...at HOME.
So this month I am saying "Yes". Ask me out and I will go!
It's actually working--Morgan and I have gone to see Dora the Explorer with my dear friend Sue Ann and her son Andrew. I've had dinner and a movie out with the girls--Kate and Leslie. Last night we accepted an invitation for cocktails with another friend who is growing her own business...and even brought the little guy. I even hosted a playdate for our international adoption play group :)
It is possible to have a life after children. You have to work at it....so just say YES!
