I love my friends!!!

I had the most awesome weekend! Jenny, Sheila, and I discussed many times how this year was just great, because it seems like everyone is just in a nice place in life right now. It's fun to sit around and talk about old, fun times, but it's also a wonderful mark of maturity to sit and talk about the here and now and share those experiences. They both stayed the weekend with me and it seems like everytime I get together with them it gets even better. I'm so blessed to have these two girls still in my life! It can be so easy to let friendships slip away, especially when you're far away. Jenny is in Dallas and now Sheila is in Abilene...but they still remain 2 of my best friends!

Friday night was awesome. I think we had 20+ girls at my house. We just sat around and caught up on things and laughed about old stories! I was truly honored to have you all over to my house! I really want to make this a tradition. If someone wants to have it at their house next year, that's great, if not...I'll send the kids away again and we'll do it at mine! I think everyone enjoyed it. We stayed up until passed 2a.m. I am hoping that by Tuesday I will have caught up on sleep that I lost this weekend! I feel like a zombie right now!!! Next years theme has already been chosen: "Don't Judge Me." ***Okay, disclaimer we are all just a bunch of silly girls that enjoy doing really dumb things...so there is no hidden meaning behind that at all...just silly, that's all!***

Saturday we went to the Kappa/Alpha Chi breakfast. It was fun as usual. We were all saying how nice it is to just sit there and not feel like you're pretending to be someone else. It seems as though we're all just so comfortable with ourselves. I think that's cause WE'RE ALL GETTING OLD!

Saturday night Jenny, Sheila, Emily, Crystal, and Jacob (me too) went to eat dinner at Stella's which was just lovely and went to the show. Kappa's show rocked...they won first. Man the choreography these days has just changed so dramatically. Remember the days when we couldn't even do hip rolls? Okay, that's long gone! And as much as I hate to admit this, Chrissy, Koinonia's show was probably the best one I've ever seen. They did an amazing job, both clubs. I also enjoyed SubT...they always make me laugh. And I thought CD's did good, Kappa just had an amazing show. Oh and I heard some of y'all talking about an alumni show, I am all in!!! I'd like to run for director, please! :)

Today Jenny went to church with me and then we met Sheila for lunch. And now they've all gone home! I picked the kids up at 10a.m. this morning. Jessica said they did great. They behaved, slept well...overall it went great! So glad to hear!!! So now we're back in the throws of normal life, but I feel fully rejuventated, even though I am so exhausted. Usually every year after this weekend is over, there is always a lull for me...but I feel different this year. Next month is my 30th birthday!!! I'm really excited about that, oddly enough. I look forward to it, and I can hear all the old lady jokes in the world, but I feel great! I'm just a spring chick! So anyways...well I've got tons of pics as promised to upload, but I don't have much more time than this, but I will probably be able to get to that tonight.

Thanks so much for making this weekend special. If you weren't here this year, I hope you can make it next year! I've just decided that if you have as many friends as I do, then you truly are a blessed person! I love y'all!!!

Glad you had such a wonderful time with your friends. I saw Sheila for a little while at Amy T.'s shower and she filled me in saying what a great time was had.

Oh, and you won't be hearing any old lady jokes coming from me. Mine is this week and its not 30. I wish! Have a great one!

It was a ton of fun. But I am too old to be up past midnight and up the next morning at 8:00am the next morning!!
30's not bad at all. It hasn't bothered me once yet!

This is such a good place to be.

So, I'm finally getting home and catching up on emails and blogs; and what did I find? A comment from you inviting me to your house for this super fun party. Drat!!! What a bum deal that I missed out!!! Looks like it was a fabulous get-together. It was fun to see you on Saturday morning though and hug your neck.
