Photo Friday

My blogger friend Corey James over at Madtexter tagged me for a photo meme. Since it's Friday, I figured what the hey, I'll play!

The rules of this one are easy:

  • Go to your first photo file and pick the 10th photo in it.
  • Tell the story behind the photo.
  • Tag 5 other people to do the same.

This photo was taken last June at my mother's Rockin' Birthday celebration. We had a big surprise party for her where we traveled by bus to a private room in a swank Boston restaurant, ate a swank Boston meal, roasted her, (well, I was the only one who roasted her, everyone else wimped out) and then traveled to an improv club where she was the star of the entire show. Mom said it was the greatest night of her life.

Pictured here with me, from left to right is my handsome as HELL nephew #1, Laurel, My Guy, My boobs,er..umm,.. I mean me, and my handsome as hell nephew #2, Hardy (not their real names). We are standing outside the restaurant, engaging in small talk and smoking disgusting cigarettes.

I love this photo because I love those boys like they were my own. Since I was about their age when they were born, I was their nanny for more that a few summers and I feel like our bond is very strong. Now that they are grown men, I enjoy spending time with them whenever I can, which is not very often. That night was a very special night for my family and I think that's evident by this photo.

I'm not a good meme tagger, so I will do the wimpy thing and just throw it out there to see what sticks. If you like the idea, run with it. I hope it brings you joyous memories, as it did for me. I want to thank Corey James for bringing me back to that great night and I will leave you with a photo from that night of the whole Rockin' fam-damily. My moms is ,of course, front and center.

Oh what a night!

Wow! I think that's the first time I've seen "Your Guy!" Well DONE GIRL!! He's a keeper, alright!

Jim said...

Lol @ "Laurel" and "Hardy" . . . those were the first two made-up names that popped into your head?

Awesome dress, and your hair back looks fabulous.

Hey Boobalicious, great picture! I think I remember you writing about your mom's surprise birthday party a while back - it was real hum-dinger wasn't it?

"Laurel & Hardy" - I have to remember that one. *chuckle*

RW said...

I would have opted for "Hardy" and "Har"... but at least you named the boys right.

Oh wait you were naming the BOYS... not the girls.

I remember when you originally posted that story, and I remember thinking "what fun that sounds like". Thanks for sharing another great picture.

What, they're names AREN'T Laurel and Hardy? Too bad.

Candy - Great picture. You can tell it was a great evening.

Cora - If you had B(.)(.)Bs like that, you'd fall over! (Not that I would complain, mind you.) ;-)
