Last night, we went over to Mr. Monkey's co-workers' house for a home-cooked Italian meal. Mr. Monkey's co-workers (hereinafter, the "Italians") are a very nice couple who work together at Mr. Monkey's company. They are so warm and loving and fun! Another couple also came to the little dinner party (the wife also works with Mr. Monkey) and brought their nine-year-old daughter as well.
In preparation for this nice evening, I decided to attempt to get beautified and to put on a little makeup. Look how nice my eyes can look when effort is made (professionally, that is).
Wah! Can you tell my right eye (that's on the left for you, as you're facing this pic) is much balder than my left eye now?
Here's my sad bald eye.
Here it all is: bruschetta, insalata caprese, golden parmesan chicken, sausage and meatballs in sauce (while still cooking on the stove), penne pasta (before being served), salad, fresh bread, and the dining table.
Dots Cupcakes that the Monkeys brought, as well as a pic of the Monkeys that the nine-year-old snapped while playing with my iPhone.
