Nuit De Filles Dehors!

This past thursday night was "Girlz Night Out" honoring the special occasion of the birthdays of two of my close "girlfriends" Tanya (left) and Jillian (right). We went out for Sushi...something I love but I had never gone out to a resteraunt for it. I had only had my brother-in-law's and Jillian's...which were both delicous!
So anyway, we went in my sebring convertable...which made the night even more fun. Jillian doesn't think that she's ever been in a convertable before. It's hard for me to imagine never being in one, cause I love mine and whenever I'm driving...if I'm without the kids and it's not raining...you can pretty much bet that the top will be down. But I will say, I have not ever had the opportunity to ride in a convertable full of girlz...it was a blast! There was, of course, one spot empty. Our friend Shauna was supposed to come with us but was unable to make it...Missed you lots Girl! Hopefully next time you will be with us!

Well as you can probably tell from the pics...we had a lot of fun! Lots of crazy, silly, giddy girl fun! I always enjoy when I have the opportunity to get a little more closely bonded with my Girlz. Jilian is the Sushi Queen (she has tried several varieties of sushi already) so we could ask her advice on what was good and what was delicious! I couldn't believe how good some of that stuff was! Now, up till that night I don't think I have ever had any raw meat of any kind....boy did I make up for it on thursday...I had yellow tail, salmon, tuna, and eel. I know! I know! Eel? But it was so good, and the eel sauce they top it with was really delicious!
So about the birthday stuff! We brought the gifts into the resteraunt...I got the girls some shirts from Aeropostale and some necklaces. Tanya got Jillian a Vera Bradley purse and wallet and Jillian got Tanya a one of a kind Monogramed necklace with monogramed T on one side and "Mon Ami" on the other...which is "My Friend" in French. You should visit the link to the necklace...I am friends with the lady who makes these and she does a scectacular job on them! Lots of creativity there!

So after dinner...the resteraunt staff and half the of resteraunt costumers sang "Happy Birthday" to the girls and gave them their birthday "ice cream" and everyone clapped and screamed and cheered....it was really hillarious and so much fun.

I can't wait for the next occasion shared with you girls...I love you all!

P.S. Nuit De Filles Dehors! in the blog title is Girls Night Out! in French!

This was in my email...it's so true!

The Husband Store
A store that sells husbands has just opened in New York City , where a woman may go to choose a husband.
Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates. You may visit the store ONLY ONCE !
There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights. There is,however, a catch . . .. you may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband...On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor 1 - These men have jobs and love the Lord.

The second floor sign reads:
Floor 2 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, and are extremely good looking.
"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:
Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are "drop dead gorgeous" and help with the housework.
"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:
Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are "drop dead gorgeous", help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.
She is so tempted to stay...

...but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 6 - You are visitor 4,363,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.

Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. Watch your step as you exit the building, and have a nice day!

Ok...Finally...here are the TN scenery pics!

My Best Friend's Blog!

Wow! So I just got an email from my childhood best friend saying that she has just started a blog...I feel like I've started a revolution..LOL! Anyway, I love this girl sooo much and we have endured a lot together. She was the very first friend I ever remember having...and at this point it feels as if I've known her my entire life. While distance has tried hard to separate us we are still in contact. We grew up in Florida and I moved to Delaware when I was 14 ...when I came back at age 19...she had already married and moved to North Carolina. So it has been hard to keep tabs on each other...especially with her and her family on missionary depution.
So, anyway I am really looking forward to following her blog...I think it will help me feel a little closer to her!
Also...this girl is one spectacular up and coming photographer...I love her style...so check it out. I know you'll love it!

My Brother, Jeremy...

Ok, so this is starting to seem a little like a family reunion! The same week my sister drove down to Alabama my brother also came down, only...he is just one hour from where I live in Florida. He made the move so that he could attend Bible School for the next three years. Ooooh...I am so excited! He'll be able too see us every two weeks! This past friday he drove over to my house and spent the night till Sunday and attended church with me and heand I got to sing together.
This is the same church we grew up in, so Sunday he was able to see people he has not seen in nine years.
I am so proud of him! He is 18 now, called to preach and he no longer seems like my "little brother". Yep, somewhere along the line he became a man and I wasn't there to see it...but I am so happy he is close now...I'm going to enjoy this!

Seeing her Uncle Jeremy for the first time in a year and a half!


Visiting My Sister

Well, Goodness Gracious! I am finally done posting stuff from our trip. That was painful...not really just time consuming!

So...some of you know that my sister moved to Alabama to work with a Girls Home. Now she is only four to five hours away and not 1,100 miles (she was in Delaware). So on the way home from Tennessee we stopped in to see her. This was the first time I've seen her in about a year...here are the pictures!
