Mom's weekend off!

This weekend Cari and I traveled up to my mama's house for some "sweet" girl time. We planned our little getaway for candy making, pedis and just good old fashioned girl talk. And not much else, which was the point. The kiddos stayed home, with daddy's and grandma's.


Saturday we worked all day in chocolate. So Saturday night we had a nice dinner out and shopped til mom dropped. We came home to a nice warm house and spent the evening sipping hot tea and coffee. What a treat!  What a fun day of being silly and enjoying one another's company.
Cari reminded me today that we have been best friends for 13 years. It feels like a lifetime. Although I have childhood memories without her of course, our friendship feels like we have been friends forever. I cherish that, and I thank God for her. She is an answer to a prayer that I had prayed often. Women need each others support and friendship for the good and the bad times in life. She has been there. I am sincerely thankful for her!

Lilly Kate

You will never guess what Lilly Kate just did! We had dance this morning, so I told her to go change out of her tutu. So she goes to her room and gets a pair of pants. Cute ones with a white and pink heart stitch around the pocket. She comes back into the living room and says that she can't find the shirt that matches. So I tell her that it is in the dryer, she says o thanks mommie. So she runs off and is gone for a while, then she comes out of her room fully dressed with 2 bows that match perfectly put TOGETHER and in her hair!!! I said, who put the bows in your hair? She says, I did, I know how to put my bows together now,mommie. Ms matter of fact.  Some needs to figure out how to keep our little girls little. And quick before it's too late.
