We've been pretty lucky, in our married life, to find some great other couples that we BOTH like. Derrick and Sherry Stewart are a FABULOUS go-to couple to hang out with, go to dinner with, camp with, or just chat with in the halls of church. Last month Derrick and Sherry took Tyler and I to the Tim McGraw concert and it totally ROCKED!
Yes, it was a great night and a wonderful birthday present from the Stewarts! (SOOOO, shout out to Derrick AND Sherry [who'd sit down with me sometimes since we're old!] and to Erin AND Angela for watching my baby.)
AND I HAVE to give another "WOOT WOOT!" to Jill Thompson for seriously hookin' a sister up with some hand-me-down baby clothes. Holy mother load, Jill! Seriously! I am totally stoked AND stocked for the year for Briggs. Since I was rapidly getting rid of anything baby as Brock grew out of his stuff, I was a little lacking in the baby boy clothes, but no longer my friends. So, thanks, Jill (and Noel, I s'pose) for the many bags of goodies! Briggs will wear them well and have way more style than if I were shopping for him :) I'll pack them up for you in case your next baby after this one is another boy . . . right!?
One more "HOL-LAH" to my friends, Donna and ElRae who are throwing a scrapbookin' smackdown this summer. I'm already getting my trash kicked (for real! this other competitor has already done 20 layouts while I've managed to open a sketch book and think about pages), but I'm excited nonetheless. So, thanks, girls for organizing something way funner (I know, not a word blog snobs!) than sweating away my summer.
I'm also happy to shout out to the gals from girls night out last night. I DO find a lot of strength in the good women I am lucky to associate with and I need my friends. I appreciate their perspective and their stories. I am glad my sister lets me tag along with her friends nowadays since I can't seem to get it together with my peeps!
Anyway, I'm way blessed and lucky with some great friends and I need to remind myself of that when I'm feeling overwhelmed and pecked to death :) Thanks peeps!
