This is Mary and I posing in our hotel room. We are wearing each other's shirts (such a girl thing to do), and yes that is the famous shirt that I blogged about. I know you are wanting to know if she got as many compliments wearing it as I do, and the answer is YESSSSSSS. Isn't that crazy? LOL
We had a girls' weekend away, and it was so nice. There is just something so comfortable and warm about being with Mary. We decided since it hadn't been working out for us to see each other's families that we would just meet half way and sneak some time away for just the two of us. We are blessed to be married to such giving, handsome (what does handsome have to do with it?....I dont know...it just felt right...hehehe) men....eight kids were left behind, while shooting this photograph...LOL
All the way up there (3 hours) I kept thinking about what we would do; a litttle shopping, Starbucks, movies, eating out. All with no kids in tow or hubbys to consider. Not that we don't love all of the above, but to be in a nice suite with just her and little ole' me is pretty grand.
I think my favorite part about our weekend was how we got some food, brought it back, got all comfy, slid into our goosedown beds, and watched our little girly flick. We stayed up late and chatted about life, and if I haven't said it before I will say it now...she is a great listener. We giggle so much it's ridiculous and fun!
We bought silly Hollywood magazines and went on and on about this style, how this person had changed, or how sad that someone was breaking up with so and so AGAIN!
All didn't end great though. My suburban, that has an alarm, was broken in to, while in the hotel parking lot. That was very disappointing. Some of my shopping was stolen, XM radio, cds, and of course the dash and door handle need to be replaced. So I had to file a police report, and then I was on my way home. I wish it could have ended on a better note, but at least I didn't have to do it alone.
I am so thankful for my friendships in this life. I have learned how to lean on them, and how I would never want to live through this life without them. Thanks Mary, I love you!
