Desperate Housewives: Grand Rapids

This weekend Isla and I were constructively evicted from THE Dorm due to a bachelor party being hosted by Greg & Dave. We decided to escape to the WEST SIDE to hang out with some of our favorite people. We spent our first night with the DeKorne girls. After we put the little ones down, Heidi and I ordered carry out, drank margaritas and were finally able to watch "He's Just Not That Into You." Lord knows we would have never won the battle for a chick flick if the fellas were around. After consuming some Oreo Cakesters, we hit the sack.

The next morning began Desperate Housewives: Grand Rapids. We got the girls ready in their cute bathing suits and headed out to the Railside Country Club to meet Dana. We "pooled" for a while with the Vanders (including Lia and Baby Molly - Isla's birthday buddy), then ate lunch poolside. After we retired from "the Club," Brooke napped and Dana and I went to get manis and pedis. Once we returned home, the Doctor took us to dinner at Kobe where we enjoyed some Japanese fare. I toured the up and coming Casa de VanderLaan to see where my guest quarters will be in the fall. After the tour, we went "downtown" and got ice cream. We turned in at about 10:30 p.m. to get our beauty sleep. The next morning Matt made pancakes while Dana burned sausage. We had our 1st breakfast around 8:30 a.m. then headed to Al & Nancy's for brunch. I tasted smokey links for the first time and enjoyed coffee on the screened in porch. Ahhhh the life of a Kent County wife. Stay tuned for the next episode of Desperate Housewives: Grand Rapids (and hopefully I won't forget my camera)!
