DAMN, GIRL'S LOOKIN' GOOD!!!

Kenny and I went out to dinner with our friend, C, last night.  Kenny and C know each other professionally, and we became friendly with the family earlier this year.  During our Italy trip (middle of April-beginning of May) we spent three nights in Positano.  C and his family were in Capri and invited us to their hotel for lunch.  We ferried over and had a really enjoyable afternoon with his wife and girls.  Since then he and the family joined us at our 4th of July BBQ.  Now C's wife and daughters are in Nantucket for the summer, so he is flying solo until he meets up with them next week.  
    
Not surprisingly, the three of us had a great evening together!  We had some good laughs and could have stayed out all night had the guys not had work this morning.  Towards the end of the night (and the end of our third bottle of wine), C remarked on how good I am looking.  The words 'damn, girl's lookin good' came out of his mouth!  He said that when he walked up to us he was like, wow, etc. etc.  Then he turned to Kenny and asked if he has noticed this.  Kenny of course said yes, yes he had.  C looked at him and said, no, really- Have. You. Noticed?  I was SO flattered.  C has only known me since the spring.  I have only lost 25 lbs or so in the last few months.  But he noticed and was willing to be so much more complimentary than friends who knew me when I was about 325 lbs!  It was also the first time I have ever had a MARRIED male friend comment on how good I am looking- not only to me but to my HUSBAND!  I was floating on Cloud Nine by the time we left the restaurant. 
     
C's comment also had an effect on Kenny.  We got home- and how do I put this, considering that my mother reads this blog (hi mom)- Kenny was much more interested in me than he typically is after a long day of work.  I think he had a bit of an 'oh sh*t' moment, acknowledging that men might actually start noticing HIS wife again.  Let's see how long this lasts for!

What a fantastic NSV! Is it wrong that sometimes it means even more when men notice the change than women? I know that for me, it's like "hey! I really DO look good!" LOL
