Saturday Snapshot

 My Saturday Snapshot!

Why are the Handyman and friends making faces? 
Because they thought they were getting some really good champagne.
Some Dom Perignon.

And.... um, you can tell by their faces.... it wasn't very good.

In fact, we didn't finish it.
But it was fun giving it a try!

It was given to  my friend Robbie by a good friend of hers for their anniversary ---or birthday or something--whatever it was, it was a celebration!
This great vintage of 1995.....or is it 1985?
The bottle didn't match the box.
Maybe it was re-gifted?

Every Friday night we have dinner with our friends, The Miltons.  Unless one of us is busy of course.
We've been getting together on Friday nights for the last 17 years.
Sometimes our kids join us, this night at their house, their son and his girl friend were there to help us taste the spoils.  (that's almost not a joke!)

We always have a great time.
All we do is have dinner---sometimes we/they have even gone home before 9pm.
We just eat and have great discussions around a beautiful table.

I am linking to Saturday Snapshot.
Be sure and stop by to check out other Saturday Snapshots at West Metro Mommy Reads.

What a great tradition! Looks like fun, even though the champagne was disappointing. How lucky you are to have lifelong friends.
My Saturday Snapshots are from a recent trip to Mount Rainier National Park.

I love the photos! I do think that is a good champagne company so I wonder what happened. I love that y'all get together every week!!

What a fun evening! I love the looks on your faces as you try that champagne!

LOL! There's nothing like that first sip and the screwy face one makes when it's NOT what one expected! Still, what a great tradition to look forward to each week! Having good friends near to share a meal and chat with is pretty priceless!

The "spoils" it!
Love the pics too. They really do tell the story of the evening.
