I hate to admit this because it seems soooo gay... not in the gay - gay kind of way... but in the pretentious kind of gay way... we decided to join a local country club.
We are not stuffy and we certainly are not of the financial elite. We are simply taking advantage of great membership deals right now (a big thanks to the American economy!)... and giving our BFFs something to joke about everytime they hear we have been to "the club".
We took the kids to "the club" this past week for St. Patty's Day. We are so non-club-like that it was difficult to find something appropriate for them to wear... and I am only talking about non-denim and collars... sweatpants not included.
They allowed the riff-raff in... and a great time was had by all... if only 80% more of our family golfed.
