I realized a couple of days ago that I’m pretty damn crazy busy right now. But the good kind of busy.
Bright and early this Wednesday husband and I leave for my family reunion in Colorado. I smile inside every time I think about spending four full days in the beautiful Estes Park with my awesome,crazy, obnoxious, wonderful family.
The weekend after is husband’s mommy’s birthday. We’re driving up to their house in Port Neches. (very close to Louisiana, a state I discovered I loved when we went in January. Hopefully I can convince him to go for a quick little drive over there too. I think I can.)
A week and a half later my best friend in the whole wide world (who resides up north) comes to see me for a week. It’s been a year since I’ve seen her and I get giddy happy every time I think about it. Also, we’re hoping for a beach trip while she’s here.
A little over two weeks after Meggie leaves, I start school again. I’m actually a little bit excited to start this semester. I have a pretty fun schedule, including classes like sign language and intro to counseling. Learning makes me a happy girl.
Even though I’m the wonderfully awesome kind of busy, I figured it was still a good excuse to spend this weekend relaxing with the hubby and some of my favorite homies.
I half-jokingly told Chelsea to bring a chocolate cake over last night. It sounded good. The girl actually had her mom make a delicious double chocolate cake, that between the nine of us at my place, was almost completely devoured by the end of the night. The moral of this story is….not only are my friends awesome, but their mommies are too.
The below picture will probably become Tessa and I’s trademark best friend picture. Our love for each other is practically glowing.I opened the fridge post-party to find some leftover treats. Yummy mommy-baked cake AND I end the night with many more drinks than I started with. Also, I didn’t throw up this morning. (I learned my lesson a couple of weeks back. Nurse my drinks as slowly as I normally do, and I’ll be just fine.) I’d call the night a major success.
