What the heck was in the Pho??

Tonight was our FCC group's Mom's Night Out and it started in a Vietnamese Restaurant eating a dish called Pho (pronounced Fa). The five wonderful women that attended (Me, Minouche, Tammie, Shari and Brenda) ventured out into the cold Florida evening to gather together, sans husbands and children, to partake in food and frivolity. After consuming our Pho, we decided to head to Starbucks for nightcaps of coffee, tea and hot chocolate. The first Starbucks store that we drove to was closing...AT 9:30?!? We were appalled and went to the next one down the road which was only open for another 20 minutes after we placed our order. We quickly consumed our food and beverages before we were very politely kicked to the curb and ambled to our car in the 48 degree night (about 38 with the wind chill). That is way too cold for us Florida women and so we decided that if were going to continue conversing, which seemed to be the case, we better get into one of our cars to do so. Since none of our very generously endowed derrieres could fit into Katie's or Ethan's car seat's we decided to get into Shari's car. Her car seat is yet to be installed since they are still waiting for permission to go to Vietnam to pick up their sweet Chianna. We pile in and begin anew with our non stop chatter and of course out comes the blackberry's, I Phones, and blackjacks to do what else but Facebook pictures and posts. Of course that set off a new chain reaction of laughter and silliness. Finally, somehow we began singing songs from Fiddler on the Roof. How the heck did that happen? I have no idea but that leads me back to my original question which is.....

What the heck was in the Pho?

Whatever it was...I would like a little more ASAP.

Here are some photos of us girls, first in the restaurant, then in the car and finally a video from the car...it is a little dark but you will get the picture...the very silly and carefree picture!

Hey girls....tag...your it!!

I am so sad I didn't get to make it. It looks like WAY more fun then what I did (unpacking after a long 2 days at grandmas!)! I will definitely be at the next one! :)

Wow! What a great night! Even if we did get kicked out of 2 Starbucks. The Pho made up for it. I really do enjoy these nights out. I'm convinced that I need to get a crackberry for sure though!

Thanks for a great night ladies! TAG! Ya'll are it!

I want some of that PHO! And you all realy need to brush up on your Fiddler lyrics, maybe the next Mom's night out you can all watch the movie together.
The video was hilarious, thanks for sharing! It just makes me miss you all that much more though.

ROFL! All I can say is...I want some too. Love the video, Will was watching it too and danced along to your serenade. Too funny!
Sigh...wish we could move to Florida....

Sounds like you all had a great time. This is South Florida, not the Mid-South, why do places close so early?

You guys are too much! Watching made me miss you all. And I think I knew more of the lyrics and I have never seen the movie...
