Girlfriend Times

Life is sometimes hard and full of unexpected challenges.  It is times like this when girlfriends need to stick together....and this is what Melissa did for me three weeks ago. No small feat when one has a special needs daughter and another in 1st grade. But some how the stars aligned and Melissa was able to arrange sitters and transportation for six days and a last minute trip to Texas.
we spent a crazy night with another friend and 16 other women driving around in an extended van
How one of them convinced their boyfriend to drive is beyond me
She arrived on a Friday evening and stayed for a long weekend and a variety of activities. Everything from appetizers, going on an all girl (19 in all)  night out on the town, shopping, site seeing and a lot of eating and talking.

Heather and i both like Fuzzys Taco's so we had to show it off to Melissa

Having two great friends here, Melissa had to occasionally divide her time. Then Heather and I also shared her together for some of the time...How special M must feel to be a wanted woman...hehe. But the company was fantastic and on our last evening out, Heather bought us dinner.

I was sad and teary eyed to send one of my best girlfriends back to Arizona. But how grateful I am that she came to spend some time fun time with me and to help me figure out the challenges to which I face.


  1. It's too easy to find excuses to put off visiting. Thanks for giving me a good reason to do it now! I felt very loved, and thoroughly enjoyed doing nothing but grown up girl stuff. LOL! Love you!!!!

  2. Oh my....i am so jealous! A Girl Friend Visit! I haven't done that in a very, very long time... perhaps it's time for me to plan one!

    So glad you had a wonderful time!

  3. lovely people around..
