Top Ten Awesome Moments of McLovin's 50th Birthday

10. Chocolate Fountain.

9. The minister walked in the front door and bestowed absolution on me so I could drink wine. But made it clear it was temporary absolution. So close.

8. Overheard: "We wanted to bring you a gift that was as old as you. Turns out nothing is as old as you."

7. Chocolate Fountain, Part Two. I turned it back on again the next day. The IHPs were cleaning out the playroom closet and I called them upstairs. Handed them each a bowl with strawberries, marshmallows, pretzel sticks, bananas and pound cake. Told them the fountain was back on. Their expression was priceless. They might as well have said to me, "Get the f*^k outta Dodge!"

6. Lydia wore an outfit. And mascara. And lipgloss. And high heeled boots. And then she spilled chocolate on her boob. Which she's still denying.

5. Lydia shows up with Hawk. She left the Cap'n home with Mini Mini Me. As soon as he walked in, another guest said, "Oh my God! Is that Hawk?"
4. Happy streaking through the house. Because it ain't a party 'til someone's naked. Even if that someone is three.

3. Best gift: Milk of Magnesia

2. Twenty-six empty bottles of wine in the recycling bin this morning. Thank you.

1. Hawk? Totally rocked the tuxedo. Covered in chocolate.

  1. The only thing wrong with spilling cholcolate on your boob is wasting good chocolate. Except for that, Lydia should *own* that spill! Chocolate boobs, loud and proud!

    OK, I have no idea what I'm talking about.

  2. 26 bottles in the recycling bin - ha ha! I always wonder what my neighbors think when the only thing in the recycling bin is beer bottles and Mikes hard lemonade bottles.

  3. Love it! It sounds like a good time was had by all. How many of those bottles did Kate drink alone?

  4. Sounds like my kind of party!!! Glad you got to have wine and to be honest, I think I would have worn a similar expression if someone handed me things to dip in chocolate!!

  5. Bottles? Upgraded from the T-Box huh? Very fancy.
