So we had a wonderful weekend! My best friend came to town to visit and we got to enjoy a nice “girl’s only” evening, no husband OR kids! WOW!! I think the last time that happened was……umm…..I don’t even remember! It was before I had kids that’s for sure! I had a wonderful Thirty-One party with my friend Jennifer (you should check out her webpage. REALLY CUTE STUFF!!) that I hosted at my house. That’s impressive for me! I got my house clean and the kids kept it clean until after the party! WOW! My “toy store” was controlled for a few hours as I call it! After the party was when we got to have our “girl’s night.” We enjoyed a late lunch/early dinner at my favorite mexican restaurant Los Cabos and than celebrated a belated “national tequila day” (which from what I learned this week was on Wednesday, July 24th). Other than that, we really didn’t do a whole lot. Sat around, watched movies, talked, the usual stuff. Today we had to say our farewells and she had to go back home sadly enough. However that wasn’t the end to our day. We got to see some more friends! When Sofie was little she went to a wonderful babysitter when we lived in Texas and even though we have moved up here to Oklahoma, we still try to keep in contact. So we were surprised with a visit from the former babysitter’s daughter and grandson whom Sofie adored when she was little. It’s funny though today, she was all bashful and wanted to have nothing to do with poor Jeremy other than to pick on him of course. I’m convinced she should have had an older brother with the way she is always picking on male friends/cousins. She gets tossed around and picked on just as well, but she LOVES it! Than to end our day, we spent the evening cleaning up the backyard from all the tree branches and twigs that were scattered around from the storms this past week. The poor trashmen! This will be their 2nd trip to our house for tree limbs/branches.
