When is the last time I let myself be silly? Not just a little fun, but silly. The kind of silly that makes your sides ache from all the laughing. The kind where you can barely look at the camera properly because you're laughing so uncontrollably. It's been a while. A long while. I'm serious. I tend to be a more serious person. I did college in three years without attending a single college party (not one, seriously, how sad!) because I wanted to grow up and get married. I'm focused.
Last weekend, I was given the wonderful opportunity to be silly. How could I not laugh uncontrollably when standing in front of a Fisher Price shopping cart next to my friend on a Sit 'N Spin? Good ole fashion fun, I tell you.
Girl's Weekend!! Four moms, no kiddos (well, Tracey's at a very minimal amount with nothing but cuteness for the time we spent with them), a movie, Whole Foods, and dinner at the Hula Hut. How much more perfect could this weekend have been for us? Not much, really. Who cares about a two hour wait for dinner when we have no children, margaritas, and a table overlooking Lake Austin to enjoy? Quickest two hours in my life! We laughed while telling stories ranging from strange traditions, siblings, tornados, and children. We discussed a wide range of topics including adequate food, home etiquette of destructive dog owners, and much much more.
I wish I could fully describe to you the respect and friendship I have formed with Amy, Jen, and Tracey. We were missing a few, but we know the next outing will include them if possible. I feel so blessed to have the friendships I do in my life. Would I survive a week without Deb? Surely not! I'm a lucky woman to have such friends.
Ladies--thank you for bringing out my inner silliness. Thank you for the wonderful weekend and the incredible laughs. I'm lucky to have you. Now, if only I could get my seriousness back to make it through this work week!!
