Friends Near And Far

Well, this weekend our long awaited trip finally happened! We got to go and see Carrie. We had this trip planned for a long time, and it had a few false starts, but this time it really came to pass!

My sister Becky and Laura and I left bright and early Saturday morning and headed away. Despite the gloomy rain, we were happy to be on our way to see our girl!

We met her at AppleBees for lunch, and had some well deserved Appletinis and Margaritas, then headed back to town for some R&R in the hotel room sans kids. What a great girls weekend! Good friends, a few Smirnoff Ices, a deck of cards, and a hotel room -- seriously. What more could we ask for? It was a blast.

Since Carrie and I don't get to see each other that often, it was especially a treat for me, even though I had to share her with Becky and Laura! LOL! It was a lot of fun. I even got to see her adorable boys for a bit at the hotel, then we all went out to lunch today, and we saw the boys and her HH for awhile as well.

It was a great time, although it went way too fast for me. I have already talked Brian into planning another trip, for him and I and the kids, in another month or two, to go see Carrie again. Life is too short to spend it away from our best friends.

Aaaaaaahhhh how fun was that!!! You all look fab! How funny is it that when I saw the group photo my heart leapt, and I was all, "Laura!!! Carrie! Cathy!" even though I only know all of you from photos in the first place. ;)

Lucky! I'm sooo jealous!

I am so in love with the mango martinis at Applebees. Chris and I often go there for date night for nachos and to watch a game.

You guys are all so beautiful, glowing in the light of sisterhood.
