Perfect evening = Chik-fil-A, TCBY white chocolate fro-yo, Thin Mints crumbled on top, the new J. Crew catalog, and The Office.
Can I tell you how many times I've driven 3 miles to TCBY only to learn they were closed for the night? The last time I had their fro-yo was forever ago in Omaha. Best Friend introduced me to the white chocolate flavor. She always orders it with cookie dough chunks mixed in. Except tonight. She called to let me know she'd gone with golden vanilla instead. She's back in Omaha for a visit, and I wish I could've been there eating my fro-yo with her.
Over a week ago, she called with news just a bit more exciting than TCBY. Best Friend is having a baby! I'm already an aunt to my brother's son and daughter, but now that BF is expecting, I'll get to be an AUNTIE (that's AWN-TEE up in the Shire). :) I imagine this is what it will feel like when I discover my sister is pregnant someday (hopefully a long time from now - Enjoy young married life, Sister!). There's something very special about having your closest friend carry a child.
