Wishing Winnie Well

Our dear Winnie shall be moving across the country soon to my old law school stomping grounds. So sad for us! It is, however, a wonderful thing for Winnie, as she and her hubby will finally be in the same city together. Let us all rejoice for that!

Nanette hosted a farewell party featuring food from Versailles. I loved my lechon asado and famoso pollo versailles combination with black beans, rice, and fried sweet plantains.

Nanette made chocolate-covered red velvet bites.

Wan made peanut marshmallow rice krispie treats. Please note the chocolate W on each treat in honor of Winnie!

[Mr. Monkey thanks you both for these tasty treats.]

A farewell party for Winnie wouldn't be complete without her latest fave game, Rock Band!

I discovered I am terrible at faux guitar, but I'm a pretty good singer (at least according to the game) and a decent faux drummer.

Amber tore up Dance Dance Revolution.

Look at those feet go!

Wan's li'l one is rather adorable and a total angel. She had on some fun ruffle-butt underthings.

Of course, we did the obligatory smiling group shot.

But this is what we're really like.

Good times! Best wishes for a stress-free move, and good luck to Winnie!
