Lots Going On...

There has been a lot going on the past few weeks, but I just haven't had a second to sit down and blog! Since this is is a little scrapbook of our lives, I really wanted to recap what we've been up to.
A few weeks ago, Brody's friend and former coworker Russell had a White Trash themed birthday party. It was lots of fun and we enjoyed eating Fun*ons and cigarette gum-ha!

The next day we went to a wedding for a couple that grew up at our church. They are quite a bit younger than me so I don't know them well, but they had a beautiful wedding. Made me want to do it all over again :)

This past weekend I got to meet up with my good friend Stacy for a Girls Trip to Dallas. I have never left the kids besides the Ladies Retreat at church so I was a bit nervous at first, but Brody did a great job with them and everyone had fun. Stacy was my travel buddy in college and after...we have been to Vegas, Cancun and Dallas several times. She is a great travel companion and getting together with her was just like no time had passed between us. We are thinking it may become an annual tradition. We even got to meet up with her friend Michelle and my college roomie Amy. So fun!!
What's a girls trip without a little shopping? We just happened to be in Dallas during the big sale at Nordstrom. Coincidence??

Glad you re-capped it all. Looks like lots of fun around there. You should have taken all the goodies out of the bags to display what you got so we could shop vicariously through you. Maybe I will show my cool new jewels you got me. :-)
