This entry goes out to Joy, who this party would not have happened without. Thank you for putting into action amidst all the craziness going on in your own life. Also, thank you Eric and Lisa for coming to hang out! It was so cool to chat and be teased by "very exciting new development on TB that you can't talk about." Hahaa =)

And thank you to the rest of the almost 30 people that came out tonight to hang out, eat good food, and meet what I think are some of the BEST travbuddies you'll find! =)

We went to El Caserio, which after 1 visit a while back with my friend Anh has become one of my favorite places to dine. I was hoping we'd get the large outdoor area so that our noise wouldn't disturb the rest of the restaurant but that was not to be. Dang TBers are LOUD! But sooo fun! =) It's like a very loud family =)

Nancy brought her Zion book which needed to go on tour again for the rest of the Zion 8, which was reunited at dinner =) What an amazing scrapbook.

Not in my dreams could I have thought up something more beautiful and artistic. Nancy has a particular talent and consolidating a lot of images and themes into something coherent. I have desperately tried to make myself a scrapbook from my Paris trip and have utterly failed..

Half the table ordered lambchops which are DELICIOUS at this restaurant but failed to meet my expectations probably due to the large # of orders they got at one time. My lambchops were a bit charred although I had ordered them medium. I hope everyone else liked theirs though!

I was very happy to sit next to RJ and Eric and across from Lisa - all people I adore and rarely get to see. RJ placated me with tons and tons of hugs! I would just have to look over with slumped shoulders and RJ would give me a BIG old hug!! HEHEHEEE =) You are the best RJ!!

Jenn, don't say it's your last meet-up...you know if you're ever in town, we would love to get together and see you again...I know it doesn't take much to get us all together, but the fact that you are going away and that you've meant a lot to us - we had to make sure that you went out with a bang!
Thanks for the friendship and the fun and crazy times...you are always welcome over here at our place if you ever need a place to couch-surf...
Be safe and hope to see you again soon - I'm sure we'll stay in contact through cyber-space....
Love you and **smooches**
Joy
