Girly girl time

I am sooo behind in posting some girly time pics. I blame the Cali trip for derailing my blog train. I promise to stay on track from here on out. . .


Before our Cali trip, was my dear friend, Katie's, 45th birthday. She looks good for 45, doesn't she? He he, totally kidding. Sarah, Melissa and I took her to the place of her choice, Ben and Jerry's. One of her favorite desserts is icecream and this place definitely hit the spot.
I brought her a stick horse to ride-I know she appreciated that. We like to make sure the birthday girl gets a little embarassed:) This worries me since my birthday is coming up. . .I even took a turn riding the horse with an old friend.




Then last week, Melissa, threw a Favorite Things Swap party. There was a TON of yummy food, good girl chat, and favorite thing swappage. Thanks Melissa for throwing such an awesome party!

The posse

The group shot with me in it. I took the first picture and then Melissa so graciously took this picture so that I could be in one too:) Thats love!
Jennifer & Katie digging into their loot. Jennifer likes to eat chapstick.

I got Katie's favorite things(SCORE!) I love this movie and of course,I love candy! Thanks!




As most everyone knows, this past Wednesday was National Cheesecake Day. My mom(shes visiting, yea me!), myself and a few friends headed out to The Cheesecake Factory to get our buck fifty slices. We waited and waited and waited before our buzzer thingy lit up and buzzed. And when it did, it was like, "Hallelujah!" We were so excited thinking we would get our cheesecake soon, thinking was the key word there. The guy took our drink orders(we all ordered water-we were not spending more that a dollar fifty!) and our cheesecake orders as well. We were in good spirits thinking cheesecake was on its way. . .

Then we waited and waited and waited some more....we started getting sleepy....

Katie cozied up to a nice piece of sourdough bread

Sarah, in her delirium, kept smashing her head into the table

Jennifer decided that when the cheesecake came, she would just feed herself in her sleep

"Give me cheesecake! NOOoooooW!" Melissa yelled. I told her to calm down.

And I regressed to my childhood years, using a napkin as a blankie and sucking my thumb. I actually used to do this people. Ask my Mom.Then our cheesecake finally came and it was worth it...right guys? :) I hope it was. Sorry for such a late night but I had fun hanging out with you guys into the wee hours of the morning, didn't you? I got you home before sunrise, thats what matters.

So, now I've caught up on some of my latest girly experiences. I am so grateful for all you galpals around. I don't know what I'd do without you! Thanks also to my Joey for always being supportive of Girl's Night Outs. You know I need it and are always happy for me when I get to hang out with them. I know that what makes me happy makes you happy too(and vice versa!). I love you for that-you're the best!

:( I was supposed to go the Cheesecake Factory over here with my friend, but the wait was 3 1/2 hours. Yikes!!! I decided I'd rather pay full price another day for my little slice of heaven. :) Love the pictures

Emily said...

OH MAN, don't you hate waiting for cheesecake? We didn't have to wait too long, and I was stoked considering that I had 3 little kids with me! ;)

Wish I could have gone to GNO!

Marie said...

Ohh, that looks like you all had so much fun despite the long wait for the cheesecake! I need a girly night out I am thinking!

Rand and I had the smart idea of having just one of us go during Trey's naptime. Little did I know, the $1.50 slices of cheesecake were for "dine-in" only and one per customer. I wasn't going to wait at least 90 minutes for one slice of cheesecake even if it is Cheesecake Factory cheesecake. But I'm glad you had fun with your g-dawgs.

Looks like fun was had by all. Nice to have friends to go out with and enjoy~Benn & Jerry's the best, Cheesecake wow, maybe the ploy was to get everyone to order something else with the cheescake it didn't work you stuck to your plan and looks like it worked. Love the drama pictures perhaps you should start a little theatre group j/k. Too funny.

Wendy said...

Oh, I was sitting at my desk at work thinking about you girls enjoying your $1.50 cheescake- oh my heart hurt!

Wow a favorite things exchange looks pretty fun! Do you put a price limit on it or anything? Also it looks like a tiring time you had at the cheesecake factory, I wish I would've known about that though!!!

Jessica said...

How fun for ya'll. I LOVE cheesecake and for 1.50--too bad I couldn't make it that night. It looks like you had tons of fun! Isn't it funny what we do for GOOD FOOD!! ;)

Jori said...

LOVE the idea of a favorite things swap!!! Looks like a great time.

Zim Family said...

That favorite things party is pure genius. I need to find some friends so I can copy you.

Mindi said...
