Is that what you are wondering?
Well ... I got to go away BY MYSELF to visit my college roommate and cram in all the stuff a girls' weekend is supposed to be made of:
1.Shopping at a very large outlet mall
2.Visiting every TJMaxx, Homegoods, and Hobby Lobby within a 40 mile radius.
3.Eating dinner at 8pm (you know we didn't have kids with us at that hour!) at Sushi 101 (I don't actually eat sushi, but I felt so cool eating at a place with a name like that!)
4.Staying up until:(She had these roses by my bed ... she's a true Southern Belle, full of hospitality.)
6.Drove to SC to a fab-u-lo-so fabric store:
7.We found the deal of the century on a huge black framed mirror on the way (more of that to come too!)
8.We laughed and chatted until my jaws hurt.
9. She pampered me:
Girhadelli dark mint chocolates for my NCC (see previous post for explanation), gerber daisies (my fave) in the bathroom, and some treasures for my home (pics to come).
10. I had the chance to visit her new church ... WOW!
As I drove home, I thanked the Lord for friendships. Friendships come in all shapes and sizes, but this one has been one of my longest and deepest friendships.... she's a keeper,for sure! We've laughed and cried through many of life's mountains and valleys. She encourages me and keeps it real.
