The NaNa's and I had planned for
years to take a FuN and FaBuLouS
40th Birthday Trip!
With all of us living all over the WORLD
(literally!) and having such busy,
crazy lives, I still can't believe
we pulled it off!!!
Of course I don't like
to leave my little family AT ALL...
so there were some tears shed
as I left. I just hate being
apart from the ones I love the most.
Thankfully I was going to see
the friends I love and adore the most,
so I was VERY excited, too!
Arrived in Dallas......
and had to send my man a selfie!
And of course get a Starbucks;)
KiDDiNG, I don't drink Starbucks.
Just a good old fashion COKE for me!!!
Then I met up with Brandy at DFW!!!
I was SO HAPPY to be flying with her!
Finally we were all together!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh HAPPY Day!
Sweet L had us all these fun little cups
with our names on them.
The next morning, I got to see my precious
little God Daughter for just a bit...
Precious little angel!
Wish I could spend more time with her...
Beautiful Lake Tahoe!
So absolutely WONDERFUL to see my
favorite Aussi Girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is "40 on the Rocks"!!!!!
Oh how I LOVE these girls......
My Soul Sister...
Sweet L and I on a shopping excursion
that afternoon in Tahoe City...
FaceTiming with my LOVES...
I missed them so,
but they were having fun
Everywhere in Tahoe is scenic...
it's a beautiful place!
Without Daddy even knowing,
this sweet little guy called me
to Face Time. He was missing
Mama and I was missing him...:(
We had a wonderful 40th
Birthday Dinner out!!!
Kelli giving us a lesson on Tahoe
AND showing off her adorable
BUMP!!! She finally shared the
news with everyone that
Baby Girl #3 is on the way:)
The next day we rented a boat and driver
We had a BLAST!
This place is GORGEOUS!
The water in Lake Tahoe
is FREEZING. I mean like
I have some strong friends who took
the PLuNGE. I, on the other hand,
didn't even consider it!!!!!!!!
We laughed so hard watching them!!! ;)
This day was one of my favorites EVER.
I prayed and prayed for my very own
"group" of friends while I was in high
school. I found them in college.
They mean everything to me.
We wanted our boat excursion to last
all day ~ it was just perfect:)
My girl who lives way too far away:(
Our last evening out for Dinner.....
Megan and I were up VERY, VeRY,
I mean VERY early the next morning
to catch our flights home!
Kids, I'm coming home!!!!!!!!!!!
Had to stop for a Starbucks of course;) ha ha!
Kimberly treated us all to these
adorable bracelets by Alex and Ani.
I love mine:)
My trip was AMAZING
and I'm so thankful for it!
But even more AMAZING was
coming back home.....
I am one VERY well-loved
Mommy and Wife and Daughter!
My cup truly runneth over!!!
Even my sweet, wonderful parents
missed me and couldn't wait to see me!
I loved that they showed up, too:)
I have the BEST family and
friends in the whole wide world.
