The title of this post should really be "sugar & shopping weekend". Because that's about all that we did. Shop. Cupcakes. Shop. Sugar cookies. Shop. Toss in a pedicure and a few late nights for good measure.
I had the chance this weekend to getaway with a few girls from church which was really great -- not only because it meant no laundry, cleaning, dishes, or cooking -- but mostly because it gave me the opportunity to get to know everyone better. Which was so nice.
Before leaving for the weekend I realized that I have never even had a girls night out since moving here, yet here I was about to spend 48 hours with these women! That's a pretty big leap, right? Luckily (and thankfully) it all worked out so well and we had a great time.
A few memories: getting cat-called by a car full of teenage boys // accidentally leaving Erin behind in the bathroom // from then on counting 1 to 7 before moving on to the next location // that creepy shaker in the house // determining that every decorating dilemma can be solved by filling "it" with decorative balls // learning how to spell tchotchke and chauffeur // playing reverse charades // exchanging favorite things under the Christmas tree
