Best Laid Plans

Friday was a beautiful evening in Peoria. Xena and I, in an effort to eat healthier, decided to cook tacos at her house rather than going to Jalapeno's. That was all well and good until my will power broke down and I had "just a half glass" of Cuervo already mixed Margarita. I hardly ever drink, but that Margarita was good. Xena, realizing the rarity of the event started having more as well. Before I knew it, I was like 6 half glasses gone and we were moving our party of two out to the roof top deck. There we inhaled a bag of baked Tostitos, half a jar of queso, and the entire handle of Margarita while listening to R & B/hip hop/pop hits from the late 90's early 00's. Good thing we decided to be healthy, right?

Although if we hadn't done that we would have missed the excellent fireworks show. From the deck you can see the fireworks from the baseball field, but Friday night there were additional fireworks just south of the Bob Michael Bridge. The show went on for over 20 minutes. Not just random amateurs, an actual coordinated show. I have no idea what it would have been for or who paid for it. Google fails me. Anyone local know what those fireworks were about?

This local gal has no idea :) I couldn't have seen them from the subdivision.

Two things:
1) Way to rediscover your affinity for drinking right before you head to Madison. Oh man are we gonna have a nice time.

2) Can we get a big 'awwwww' for Mandi officially being a local?!

1. In Madison all you freaks drink is beer. I have never had an affinity for beer. Now all I can think about are fried cheese curds at Madison bars; my GI tract is going to die next weekend.

2. Woot woot for a local Mandi!

That sounds like a kickin' good time had by all. Don't sweat the health, doctor says lettin' loose every now and again isn't going to kill ya.
