The Real Housewives of Franklin County hosted a dinner party reunion last night. This was our first gathering of all the most popular members since Memorial Day Last year! We were so overdue.
It was one of those evenings where the cocktails and wine poured as we gabbed endlessly with great storytelling and talk of the latest adventures. The RHOFC dress code was NOT observed as most of the housewives wore (GASP!)vivid and bright color. Our traditional uniform; of some form of a black top over True Religion jeans, was tossed aside, and we donned our own choices without prior consultation of the others. It was shocking.
The evening began with yummy cocktails and getting all caught up. The Real Husbands chatted about all things business, sports and more business- but that is how they roll. The Real Housewives sipped their libations while they talked about anything but sports or business.
We all posed for these memorable photos and continued about our date night. The men were only MILDLY annoyed- I think they are just getting used to the demand to be photographed for the blog. The blog, the god dammed blog they mutter under their single malt scotch fragranced breath.
Our group of nine was crammed around a table for eight. Thankfully, I am the heftiest of the women, so all the rest of the size 2 skinny bitches** had ample elbow room. We sat for a four course gourmet feast that took F-O-R-E-V-E-R to be served. We were seated at eight o'clock and tapped our fingers on the tablecloth for 45 minutes before
the salads made their appearance. They were delicious but I wondered if it was because we were starving, and prairie dust would have been good, or because they were indeed worthy. No telling.
We did not get our entrees until 9:45- because the service was so painfully slow. So when the meal arrived, there was a moment of silence as we crammed fork fulls of these amazing dishes into our mouths.
We were all a little sad that the service was so "feh" because the meal itself rocked our world. If the wait staff and bartenders were as fine as the cuisine, it would have been an impeccable dining experience. Don't worry folks, I intend to speak up in a letter to the manager- not so much a complaint as a heads up on how to improve for our next visit. Fortunately for the restaurant, we were not being captured real time for Bravo, because it would have been bad for business. Really bad.
I have seen the Real Housewives of Orange County in their dining adventures, and it appears as if those women do not eat. They peck and nibble at best. I'm proud to report that Real Housewives of Franklin County order and eat dessert.
We are a group of savvy ladies that enjoy a nice sweet ending to an evening with our favorite people. We shop the True Religion outlet at Sawgrass and we stock up on all three sizes** of our coveted jeans- skinny, normal and after dinner sizes. Since we buy them at 2/3 off retail, we buy all three sizes, just to be safe.
Nothing makes a night more special than sharing with your friends
and partners in crime, oh yeah, and the real husbands too. If there is one bond all of us have, it is the sincere appreciation for our guys.While they piss us off from time to time, there is not a single one of them that wouldn't stop a bullet for us. They love us unconditionally and vice versa. When it comes to real husbands, the Real Housewives of Franklin County have little if any drama in that department.
As the evening ended we vowed not to wait so long for our next official outing. The Real Housewives of Franklin County and their fans can be assured there will be more episodes in the near future.
