Happy Birthday Boo!!

Happy Birthday to the best big sister a girl could ever ask for! (and I am sure the other girls would say best friend, best totally rock) You deserve everything you want and more. We all love you so much and can't wait to go out and celebrate your big 2-9 this weekend! Happy, Happy Birthday Boo!

Happy Birthday Charing!!

Happy 40th Birthday my dear sweet best friend. Nobody could ever ask for a better friend than you. You are always there for all of your ZPO sisters with coffee, Margarita's, food and most importantly great conversation. You share in all of our joys and all of our heart aches. You really are the best friend a girl could have. We all love you so much and hope you have the best birthday ever!

**Yes, I know your husband worked his way into your birthday pic, but I still haven't recovered my old pictures from the fried computer, so the options were VERY you all look so cute**

**Speaking of pictures, I HAVE NOT forgotten about the New York post, I just have NOBODY'S pictures yet! Pass them on to me and I will get a post up about the amazing birthday weekend!**

Back to School and August ZPO

Well, it is that time of year again. Many of our ZPO's are now heading back into the classroom. Candice is now also joining the ranks of teachers in our group. Soon those of us not in the education profession will be out numbered! Girls, we hope your first week went great and that you have classes full of angels who's minds are open and ready to be filled to the brim with all that wonderful knowledge you have to offer!

We also had our August ZPO this past weekend. ZPO dates have kind of been blurred this summer because...well, honestly we have been doing so much stuff together! Not something to complain about at all, but it makes posting about our monthly meeting a little different. That and the fact that I cannot get my ass on the ball of keeping up with this site. Anyway, this weekend was the scheduled ZPO for August. Friday night me, Nick, Boo, Chris, Charing, Scott, Candice and Davis all went out to Atomic Cafe for drinks. We always enjoy their patio and all had a really great time!

Saturday morning Charing, Boo, Liz, Rhi and I all met for breakfast and catching up at Charings. Charing, thanks for putting up with us all...we know we might have been slightly overwhelming what with all of the drinking from the night before, but we all had a really great time! That afternoon Boo, Charing, Carter and I headed down to the Woodland Craft fair. They have such amazing damn good food! That night the Cooks, Kelseys and Cpreks all went out to dinner at Ruby Tuesday's then over to Marikka's for some drinks. We got to watch a very fascinating display on the volleyball court....oh the man who thought he needed his shirt unbuttoned...and then his jeans peg that was a real treat!

So you see what I mean, blurred lines. Either way, the ZPO girls are getting lots of time in together and we are all having a blast!

Happy Birthday USA!!

By Bo0

Okay, so this post is a little over due! But we've all been really busy! Not too busy to write on our own blogs I hear you whisper...whatever! Fine, SHAME, we feel bad about it and we'll try hard to do better! All seven ZPO girls were together for the 4th of July! AMAZING! It's actually pretty rare for ALL of us to get together. Someone usually has to work, is out of town or has a prior committment. Everyone who can come does come it just usually works out that there are 5 or 6 girls at any given event so to have all 7 of us together was a real treat!!
We where, of course, at Tarp & Jim's Fabulous 4th of July White Party!!! The evening started of rainy and we thought the fireworks might be cancelled but luckily the rain stopped just in time! Tarp has an awesome roof top patio with a perfect view of the downtown fireworks! The fireworks were great even though we wrongly predicted the "grand finalle" 4 times before it actually happened!

We drank, laughed, danced...basically celebrated our nation's birthday with style! Everyone's already looking forward to next year! What the theme be...we'll have to wait to find out!!

Get Well Soon!

I am sad to tell everyone that Charing's step-dad Marty has had a stroke and is now in the hospital. It has been a very difficult last few days, but he is finally doing a little better. Looks like there will be a very long hospital stay, followed by lots of physical therapy, but the important thing it they were able to get in there and save him. Charing flew home from her trip to New York yesterday to be with Marty and her Mom. Marty, all the ZPO's love you so much and can't wait for you to get better!

So we all know that I have kind of sucked at updating ZPO as of late, so I am doing one big Vacation post!

Rhi and Travis just got back from Florida with her family this week. Rhi, we missed you and are so happy you had such a great time!

Charing and Boo are both leaving on Family vacation today. Charing will be with the family in New York while Boo and Chris will be with Chris's family in Hilton Head. I am sure you all will have a great time! We will miss you and can't wait to see you in a week!

Next weekend Candice is heading down to Florida with Davis and his family. We will miss you guys at the 4th of July Bash, but I am sure the beach is a good trade! Have fun!

Me, Liz and Missy are going nowhere. How sad is that? Doesn't really seem right, does it?

Missy Turns The Big 2-5!

Our sweet little Missy has just had a birthday! Amazing but true, she is now twenty five! To celebrate a large group of us (Liz and Cory couldn't make it, but the rest of the ZPO's were there!) went downtown and had an amazing dinner on the patio at Dudley's. Seriously...the food was slammin'! After dinner we headed out for drinks and dancing at Salattos. Everyone had such a great night. It was the perfect way to celebrate your big day! Happy Birthday baby girl! I am sorry this is a bit late, but we all love you so much!!

May's Meeting

I do realize it is now June, and I am sure all of our fans figured we had totally forsaken ZPO. This is not true...I have just totally forsaken the ZPO website! I do still have plans of handing over the reigns to Charing, but for now it is still my fault the posting has not been happening!

So, a couple of weekends ago we had our first ZPO night out in quite some time. We have actually changed up the ZPO planning a bit. We are now each taking turns planning a month. We set our date, someone takes charge, and whoever can come will come. This month was really a very small group due to the fact that we had it on Memorial Day weekend and lots of people had family and friends in town. Anyway, Boo (who was doing the planning), me, Charing and Candice all headed down for a wonderful night of dinner and drinks on the patio at Atomic Cafe.

We had such a wonderful time! Our food was wonderful, our drinks would have been awesome had they not tried to kill me by spiking my drink with NASTY NASTY BANANA Liquor. How could they?!?! Boo told us all about her IVF plans. She has a new personal blog about the entire process. Take a look at her new site
Optimistically Waiting and keep up with their process while giving her tons of love and support! (Boo-we all love you and are so excited for you and behind you all 100%!!)Anyway, the band was great, the conversation was great, the weather was perfect...all in all it was a perfect night out with the girls!

***In case you haven't noticed, the ZPO site has undergone a serious face lift. Liz used her mad skills to come up with a new picture for the site, so I worked with it to come up with our new look. Hope you all like it!***
