Lucy, Ethel, Ricky and Fred {or Liz, Rachel, Sean and Nate}.

First of all, thank you for your suggestions on the last post.  Sean and I have yet to decide but I'll let you know, when we do!


*****



So.  Our neighbors, Liz and Nate, live right across the street.  I look at their house, out the window, while rocking Frankie to sleep and say a little prayer of thanks that we moved in, next to them. I'm sure anyone would tell you that neighbors can be iffy, but in all three of our living spaces, as adults, we have had extreme luck.  With our current house, we hit the jackpot.
We love them, their kids and their entire huge family. In one short year, we've gained friends for life and all of our other friends love them too.  They're easy to love. They're just good, salt of the earth people and those types make the best neighbors.
It doesn't hurt that Lizzy and her mom are both great cooks {not necessary but it certainly earns them extra points. I kid. Not really.}

Since there is extreme accessibility with living across the street from someone, we have had many post-bedtime get togethers with them and tonight we are going to do something new.  We'll head over there for dinner and after the babies are snug as bugs in rugs, we're game playing!  We've played games before {Settlers of Catan, anyone?} but tonight.....

We are playing MAHJONG!

Seans mother is coming over and will serve as our instructor, as we are all newbies.

While it's not Bridge, like the 1950's, this will be just as fun and I'm thinking about making a run to the store to have some fun appetizers, right in the center of the table. In fact, I'm not thinking about it....I'm going to do it.

I'm off!

Happy Weekend to all!
{And I wouldn't mind you telling me your favorite board game.  We are always looking for new ones to try as all of our friends are game players and always up for some friendly competition!}

  1. Thank you for knowing about Settlers. We're big fans of Ticket to Ride, esp. the Europe version. It's a board game, and it is SO fun.

    P.S., I think this is my first time commenting, but I've been a follower for a little while. HI!

  2. What fun to have neighbors to play with! I love games almost as much as I love chocolate, hehe. One of my favorites is Killer Bunnies. LOVE that game! Catan is fun too. :)

  3. My favorite game right now is Quirkle. It is a tile game that seems simple, but can require strategy and thinking. The only drawback is the maximum number of players is 4. Have a great evening. I'm off to check out Catan.

  7. We like Pandemic. It's a strategy game where you try to save the world. Everyone is kinda on the same team, so either everyone wins or everyone looses. It takes a little bit to get the hang of things, but so much fun!

  9. Bananagrams is a fun word game and can be very fast paced if you have those that are competetive.
