It's a Guy Thing

Minutes before the doorbell rang I had hubby's new pillows finished for his Man Cave.

We worked from before sunup to prepare for tonight's big cookout with his co-workers. Yesterday he smoked 4 chickens, today he smoked a brisket. I made M&M cookies and Toll House cookies, then went to the local BBQ place for the beans and rice (grin). For the past several days we have been getting the house ready for guests.

Hubby says we should entertain more often, it's the only time every room in the house is clean at the same time (double grin). My neighbor saw him washing the windows the other day and told me "he's a keeper!" Of course, I already knew that!

It was nice to finally get to meet hubby's co-workers and their families. We had a pleasant evening outside with lots of food and laughter.

Of course, Pixxie had to supervise all the cooking and was the biggest beggar. She made several new friends tonight that's for sure.

I enjoy the fact that the fellows all get along and enjoy each other's company. In today's world that's saying a lot! To have a crew that you actually want to invite over!

As much as we need rain, I was thankful that the cookout wasn't rained out and had to be moved indoors. I think everyone enjoyed being outside. Even past dark there was still a party going on!

Just a little FYI, the blue cooler there is Son #1's invention - it's his floating boom box -- he has speakers hooked up and a water protection device for his iPod - and this is what he takes when he goes tubing down river. Everyone was impressed and we appreciated him bringing the music.

All in all, it was a fun GUY party and I truly enjoyed working with my husband to do something special for the guys he spends a lot of his time with.

Tomorrow, back to quilt stories ....
