I have been blessed with amazing friends. I am part of a group of girls (10) who have been friends since high school, and remain close. We actually still get together once a week, on Wednesdays. Girls night. We've been doing this since we graduated high school 9 years ago.
We used to go camping, but that has changed in the last few years because of some with kids. ( I think). We do however, still do a girls Christmas every year. This is last year. (I am exactly 1 month from having Avery here, hence the belly). We started off with our Christmas function being a night at a hotel in Winnipeg, and going to Celebrations. It has since grown into a full weekend event, in Grand Forks. Its been wonderful. Its always a great weekend. Sometimes there is only 5 of us, sometimes there is 8. This year, looks like all 10 can make it. I look forward to this weekend starting the Monday of the one we get back from.
I realize not all of my friends are like me. I need time away from my kids. A weekend away is the perfect thing. And who better to spend it with then amazing friends.
We do alot of shopping. A LOT!! From Christmas gifts, to clothes for ourselves and our kids. (6 of us have kids, 2 are expecting) This year for the first time, I will be able to go to the house decor section of my favorite stores. A section that I've never entered, as I knew I didn't have a house to put things in. I Can't Wait!

I am blessed. I am lucky. I have amazing friends. I am blessed.

That sounds like so much fun- shopping for house decor, clothes and being with great friends!

What an awesome getaway with the girls. I'm like you and need a getaway (even for a day) from the babes, it makes me appreciate them that much more. Have fun shopping for your home.
