While we were at dinner Nancy & her other half were enjoying the night dancing away at their Welcome Home Ball. (yup from the deployment the guys got home from almost 2 months ago)
After they were done we met up at the Hale Koa Hotel were they were staying and from there made our way down to the Yard House. A popular restaurant & bar right in the center of the Waikiki strip. It draws loads of locals, military, & tourist from all walks of life. Never fails when ever we go there we always run in to people we know. Tonight was no different a group of guys from Gabe's company were there enjoying a few drinks..........a few might have been a understatement.
We got lucky & a couple was leaving from the bar area when we walked in so we quickly snagged their seats. We enjoyed a few drinks, great conversation and some crazy people watching before we called it a night and headed back to our car & them to their hotel. It was a simple night out, but a fun reason to get dressed up. Not to mention getting to spend the evening with a awesome couple. Going a whole year with out your other half is hard & you really rely on your friends to get you through those ruff & tuff times. I met N right at the beginning of the deployment & so our hubbies had never met. (NOTE~ this was NOT the first time they'd met they met right when they all got back from Iraq) Thankfully they hit it off right away, I knew they would seeings they are so alike.
