Laughter and Leotards.

Happy Monday to you all!! How was your weekend? Here at our castle we had a typical weekend. The highlight of this weekend was some time I was able to spend with some lovely women who I call my friends.
Every year I can count on my friend Carrie to have the best birthday bash ever. Yes, she throws herself a party. That is one of the many reason she is my friend and I adore her. A group of us crazy women all get together every year. I have known Carrie since high school so we have seen each other go from high school cheerleaders to wives and mothers. All of our girlfriends have lots of different jobs. Many are teachers and many of us stay at home or work part time. Our lives go in a lot of different directions but for a few hours we get to reconnect, laugh with each other and complain to each other. We chat about blogging, camel toe, schooling, crazy kids, adoption, zumba, etc you know, the norm. We laugh hard and took really unflattering pictures. What's a girls night without those? I mean many of them were in leotards for goodness sake. You can't see it but they are all standing on a trampoline for the pictures! {hilarious}

After seeing these you so want to be my friend now, right? After the relay race was complete {yes, you read correctly, there was a relay race} and the Oreo eating contest was complete we all sat around and chatted. There were a few different conversations going on. For a brief second I paused and watched as my friends laughed and talked and hugged and just enjoyed time together. Many of which have a had a rough year and you could feel the warmth in the room. 

The 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' party was a success. Once again Carrie didn't let us down. The night flew by but also lasted for hours. You know what I mean? It was one of those times when you know it has to end but just didn't want it to. This is how I felt. I didn't want to pull myself away. So, I stood in the kitchen {by the cookie cake} and talked, ate, laughed and soaked in all of the time I could.

I hope your weekend was much like mine and was filled with simple joys and rich friendship!
