1. What kind of shoes are you wearing today? (in a shoe mood as I just saw a fabulous pair of heels someone was wearing lol)

2. Favorite Salad Dressing?

3. Plans for the weekend?

1. Snow boots. My corner of the world is slushy and I've been in and out running errands all day.

2. No dressing. I've never liked it. When I make salad, I do sprinkle a little extra-light tasting olive oil in, just enough to make the flax meal/sesame seeds/almond slivers stick. 

3. My husband works with a guy who has a booming DJ business on the side and we've been put on some kind of VIP list to get into some big party tomorrow night. I have no idea what it is really or what to expect. The last time we went to one of these things we had to call dss to come pick us up because "dinner" turned into closing the bar. 

Other than that, just a family birthday party on Sunday I think. I've got some homework to finish up on Saturday and dh wants to get some GMAT practice in.

None now, I took them off as soon as I got home but was wearing blue Nike's.

3 cheese ranch.

One Saturday the local AAA baseball team is having an open house that I am going to.  Sunday evening will be birthday celebration for DD2 and DD1's  boyfriends.   Pizza, ice cream and cake followed by Wii.

<p>Balsamic vinegar has long been my go-to for salad dressing.  I'll sometimes go for a balsamic vinaigrette when eating out, but just the balsamic vinegar alone is defintely my favorite.</p>

I do balsamic standalone too somtimes. Especially when I have no calories to spare.

Did you learn NOTHING from the other thread? Your kids cannot be your designated driver. Geesh!

We like teeter on the edge of acceptable parenting.

Technically, this is true. 

On a serious note, I don't understand why it would be considered bad parenting. First, the kid is 20 and his GF is like 23, so he's already a well-practiced DD. (She's all like, out-of-town club hopping for me and all my BFFs? I THINK YES.) Second, we're demonstrating responsible drinking. There's nothing wrong with admitting you had one drink too many and hand the keys to someone else. That's exactly what I want my kids to do, anyway, so I'm not going to pretend that it's unacceptable. I desperately wish that if he ever finds himself in a similar position that he allow us to return the favor.

I've already had the conversation w/DS that should he ever find himself intoxicated in HS, he gets amnesty if he calls us for a ride. The first time my sister and I ever got drunk, she puked all over my parent's bedroom. I got the spins, but no puking. Nonetheless, neither of us touched vodka again for quite some time...

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Hey, I'm still not speaking to Jack Daniels.  :)  While it's true I was a grown adult with a child in middle school at the time Jack and I broke up, it's still  been more than 15 years :D
