happy, happy girl

SO – Spring Semester was officially over for my friend Megan – who finished her last clinical on Wednesday.  Since Blake was off and home with the kiddos, of course it seemed appropriate that we celebrate.  It’s been a while since we’ve had a girl’s night out that was just super fun and without any sort of drama.  It’s crazy how hard it can be for adults to behave like adults.  Anyway, it was one of those rare occasions where the weirdos stayed at home and us normal people were able to just enjoy a good time.  I’m not much for the bar scene at all – but one of my best guy friends, Damien, handles the DJing for Karaoke on Wednesday nights at this little Cajun joint called The Bayou.  Several of my girls graced us with their presence and the night couldn’t have gone better.  I only had 1 and 1/2 beers the entire night and I’ve found that not getting hammered makes for much better pictures… haha.  For that reason, I will share.   =)

just us girls (me, lower left)dancin'dancin'

These are some of the coolest girls I’ve ever met – minus my girl Kristen and my favorite girl Leah, of course!  It’s always nice when pretty girls can hang out with eachother without there being any drama or jealousy, isn’t it?  haha…

My camera has been MIA all weekend, but I will tell you that we had an amazing weekend.  I didn’t get to do the planned camping trip because the weather was questionable and my girl Noelle hurt her back pretty bad.  So, at her request,  we opted to congregate at my house and make a feast of my homemade fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, fresh corn on the cob, and pasta salad.  Total comfort food. My girl needed some comfort food after the few days she’d had.   Let’s not forget the wine and the boys enjoyed a few bevies while outside playing Bocce Ball – they were so much fun to watch because they were sooo into it!   Dessert was compliments of Noelle & Donnie – a Reese’s peanut butter cup pie – absolutely sinful – thanks, Noelle!   I couldn’t help but to fall asleep thinking about how blessed I am to have such incredible friends… Life is GooD!

Today, the boys are outside working on the yard… it looks complicated, so I’m hanging in the house with the laundry, sweeping, mopping, dust bunnies – etc. while Piper plays dress up.   That’s my comfort zone – haha.  It’s been a great weekend – I really can’t complain about anything.  The minute a stressful situation started to weigh on me, my friends were right there to be supportive and put a smile on my face.  That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?   Amazing family, good friends, good food, and good times… love it!

Here are some ‘flowers’ Piper picked on her way home from the park and put in water for me – I really do adore being a Mom…  =)

i LOVE being a Mommy!!
