OK, seriously...

OK, I've looked all over the freakin' dashboard or whatever and can't figure out how to put the new "titles" underneath all of your fancy blogs on my list on my blog...Bek and Sarah and Jenny all did it..tell me how please!
OH yeah, and as for next Friday, the 8th....where, what time? I need to have a plan...I'm OCD like that.

Go to "layout" and click on "add a page element." Then, select "Blog List" (it's in the top left corner for me). And then you can enter the blogs you want and check the box to show the "Title of most recent item."

As for Friday, I don't know much about that area where all y'all live...Is there a good Mexican restaurant? And how is 8 p.m.? Need to do later because of kiddos? Doesn't matter to me!!

There are lot's of mexican food restaurants...Bek, how are the margaritas at Fresco's? They have good guac, cheese dip and salsa so that would be good...8pm would probably be great for me:)

KJ Druyvesteyn said...

Oh, and Fresco's has a great deck! Their food sucks...but the chips-n-salsa and all is good. : ) I think we would all just be drinking the ritas and eating the chips-n-salsa anyway so the food doesn't really matter, right? 8 works for me! It will be pretty fun....How many are planning to come? I know I am, Ang, Jenny....what about the rest of y'all?

Sarah said...

Do we want to pick a place a little closer to Jenny? Let's holler about this via email so that stalker people don't show up. I'll get one started...I think I know everyone's info. Ang, I'll send it to your school account. Then, you guys can forward it out to anyone you think will want to come--like NAN or whatever.

The Robertson Family said...

Good call on the stalkers. I don't want that "Big Guy" figuring us out.

As for closer to me, don't worry about that!

Big Guy said...

Unlike Jen,Ang, and Nan, the other blog-o-moms out there may be secretly expecting that "Bob" will win the Big Guy "Pick a Pic" contest!

Big Guy will be checking his email daily for his party invite.

Jennifer said...

I'm ONLY coming if Big Guy comes.

Who am I kidding, you had me at chips and salsa.

Who am I really kidding, you had me at drinking...anything, really.

sounds good to me...whatever is fine:)

Rob said...

Okay, everybody - out of the pool.

What's going on here?
What are you planning?

My wife has mentioned nothing of a fiesta next Friday, although I know she was planning to take the day off.

Margaritas, huh? I can't wait to talk to her when she gets back from dinner with her folks tonight.

Rob said...

As long as I'm here by myself, unsupervised, anybody want to know some embarrassing secrets about Jenny?

Okay here's one: It took her more than a year to figure out our toaster. It's the kind where you put the piece of bread in the bread-sized slot at the top and press the lever. It has a rotary dial that goes from 1-5, with 5 being burnt. That's been the real hangup for her.

Anyway, she's been tinkering with various settings (did I mention the only dial only goes between 1-5?) for months and on Sunday, I think God finally intervened and she made a picture-perfect piece of toast (maybe I'll post a picture, since you guys are into that). Dial setting: 4. She gave it to Tate, who ate it up with all the grace of an industrial wood chipper.

Now she makes one piece of perfect toast at a time, and she's really proud. Feels like she's, you know, providing for her boys, bless her heart.

I think she just got back so I better go. Bye. Y'all stop by the Bongo Online Bungalow some time. And Sunday is toast day at casa Robertson, in case you ever want to come over before church or something.

Thanks for posting comments on my blog. I love reading them (that goes for you, Bek, kj, sarah, the odd husband and anyone else I may have missed).

The Robertson Family said...

yeah, I just assumed Rob was paying attention to the blogs and knew about it. I mean, a co-worker of mine today said "so are you excited about margaritas on Friday?" But Bongo is clueless most of the time.

As for the toaster, the actual setting is more like 4.27. And it does make beautiful toast.

pink is the new black said...

OK, I have another funny about Jenny...wait...I better not...she's got too much on me and I her...things are better left with the toast...Roberino, we don't need the toast but we WOULD like to have lunch with y'all sometime! We can go out of course:)

Rebekah said...

Bongo, love that you outed your wife on toast of all things!!!

JR--love that your co-workers know about Friday. That makes me think our co-blog would actually have a readership. Also, nervous about mobile blogging being outed now??

KJ Druyvesteyn said...

Hey, in Jenny's defense, it sometimes takes a bit to get used to your appliances. Thankfully, I've figured out the microwave and it cooked our dinner tonight. Weight Watcher's Chicken Quesadilla for me, a waffle for Landon, and a Chicken Pot Pie for my hubby. AM I A GOOD WIFE OR WHAT?

Robarino--anytime you want to scoop on Jenny (or NAN for that matter), feel free. : )

nancy said...

Rob has absolutely nothing to scoop on me about. I am an angel who does everything right and makes perfect toast. I should write a book. I do love that Rob was home alone and reading all the gals' blogs. He just acts like he is a sports fanatic. I bet as soon as Jenny leaves the room, he immediately changes the channel from ESPN to Oxygen.
KJ- I am impressed with your cooking abilities! I can't even make those things because it takes going to the store. I can make anything on the Taco Bell menu!

Rob said...

Did you guys know that the first 6 times I came to Texas to visit Jenny's family, I accidentally saw Nancy in her underwear every time?

Robes? ...unlearnable

Rebekah said...

Ha Bongo! NAN and Sarah would get along well. Chris accidentally saw my sister Sarah in her bra while he and I were dating in high school.

pink is the new black said...

Weird! Seth's brother Victor saw me in my bra when we were dating too...must be a pre-requisite

KJ Druyvesteyn said...

Well, WHY are y'all walking around practically naked? Sheesh. At least up North we have the good sense to cover ourselves...

And Bongo...ONE time is an "accident." 5 more "accidental" times after that? HMMMM....I'm thinking premeditation. NAN--ever thought of a restraining order?

nancy said...

Good point KJ! My bedroom window always faced the backyard so I guess I never though to close the blinds!
But I guess I am "Naked Aunt Nancy". I can't deny my need to be nude.

Sarah said...

I JUST SAW THIS LINE OF COMMENTS!!!! AAAAH. Rob...if you like the comments...then you should comment on our blogs, too. We're needy like that.

I'm just sayin'.
