When Mormons Attack

I met these strange people for lunch today.
Laraine, Me, Jo, and Roe.

"Hey Waitress with the massive quantity of eyeliner! 
Four Diet Cokes over here please and keep them coming!"

These women are a hoot to be around.
We laughed all through lunch.

We took several pictures.
We decided to be cute in one of them.
Sexy in another.
Flirtatious in another one.
Not sure which shot that above photo was
but Jo was all three at once.
Don't you agree?

At one point, these three women started talking about Wards
and other Mormon terms that I wasn't familiar with.
I started singing,
One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn't belong!"

It was Laraine's first time meeting bloggers.
I hope we didn't scare her off.
We loved her.
She is much smarter than I but didn't make me feel bad about it.

Roe had us cracking up telling us a story
about the crazy old woman who lives next door to her
and believes that Roe is trying to kill her with
the wood chips in her front yard.

I so hope Jo and I didn't scare them off.
We tend to do that.

Jo came home with me and met Brian who was
made to suffer from our lunch out
by having to make his own bologna sandwiches for lunch.
He survived.

Let's do this next month!!
What do you say?

I think you all look great, its always good to get out with friends, good to hear from you Holly!

just call me jo said...

I'm so glad you posted that particular picture of me. The rest of you look so glamorous...Talk about one of these things not like the others. It's not the non-Mormon, I tell you. I'm sure Brian was so glad to meet me too. That was so fun. We must go again soon.

Yes!!! It was just too much fun. A do-over is a must! I'm tellin' ya. Las Vegas would be a weekend of fun laughing at all the strange people there. Wait. Maybe they would be laughing at us. Hmmm.

I had a wonderful time. Holly, you showed your linguistic gifts in interpreting the Mormonspeak effortlessly. I am already looking forward to next month.

We all seem bathed in an unearthly light. What's with that?

I'm really not sure the MOOD of the photo but will just say that all of you look like a million bucks! Holly, you are adorable...did you redo your hair? Loose weight? Win a million bucks?

How fun to meet the new girls and I'm sure they'll come back for more!

JO....too much lemon in your soda?

SO HAPPY you got some girl time! Oh, my. Where would I be without my girls? I love them so.
You are to die for beautiful. So now I can't meet you in real life because I am not.

xo, Cheryl

Love the picture ladies. You all look great. Sounds like you had a wonderful time.

Ashley said...

Girl time?? What is that? I prefer alone time...probably because i only have one girlfriend i truly like and we only get together so our daughters can play while we talk. I guess that kinda counts!


Your photo says it all. What a GREAT group of gals. Glad you all got together and bonded. Looks like you had a blast. Enjoyed hearing about it, every detail. Am I nosy or what? take care. PS) Still chuckling over your hubby having to make his own sandwich. I know someone just like him.

Kris said...

WaaaWaaaa!!! I want to go to lunch with you too!! Looks like a good time was had by all. Maybe especially Jo!!!
You look fabulous Holly! You are most surely doing great on WW!!
No, I didn't find my pillows. You cracked me up suggesting I may have slipcovered them in something autumney!!
Love ya!

Hello Holly, I've been reading about your get-together on your blogging buddies blogs and came over to say hi. You all sounded like you had such a blast.

Pat MacKenzie said...

I don't know about Lorraine and Roe but you scared me off last year! I'm willing to try again though, even if it includes silly hairbands! I don't suppose the four of you would consider getting together again this month??? Looks like you had a lot of fun.

Melynda said...

Looks like a great time was had! You all ought to move to Washington, then I could have some fun also......

Cherie said...

I'm a regular on Jo and Laraines blogs - and thought I'd pop on over here and say "Hi". I had to read every version of the epic lunch tale after all!!! :-D
You girls crack me up! Looks like it was a ton of fun:-)

And BTW. I love you. You make me smile and warm my heart.

I want to meet Brian and see if I can get him to smile, too.


Genn said...

You look so great Holly.

Hope you are having a good week.

Hi Holly! Had to come over from Roe and Jo's blog posts about your lunch. I met Roe in UT last year and she's a hoot! I'd be singing that same song with ya:) Think I'll follow you and share some giggles. Btw, men and bologna always survive...

What a fun day! That's a great pic. You know I live in Mormon town here in Mesa. They are the friendliest people. What restaurant was that?

I tried leaving you a comment about 56 times from home last night & I kept getting an error message but I'm back, fingers crossed.

I laughed so hard reading your posts/catching up. You look amazing & I love that color coral on you!

I see by your lack of posting that you still aren't over your mormon attack ;)
Happy Valentines Day Holly!
