I have this friend. She sometimes mails me some of her fabulous thrifty finds and makes me tear up at how thoughtful she is. Like she knows how I need preschool ideas for the boys, so she includes some books filled with awesome preschooler activities and a vintage granny dress and says things like “Oh I saw this bag and it just looked like you” as if she didn’t just mail me the most fabulous bag ever. She’s a keeper…and not just because she mails me gifts :)
Speaking of friends, I had a girls morning with some new-ish friends. Normally Joyce and I get together with our kids for play dates, but we finally got together with two other ladies, sans the kids, and had brunch and did a little consignment shopping. How fancy are we, doing brunch?
In all honesty, I’m usually a homebody, but getting out and laughing, meeting a new friend and stuffing my face with pancakes, it was just what I needed. Even if they don’t want to, I’m going to force them to do it again on a regular basis…you can force people to hang out with you right?
Thanks to Josh for encouraging me to take some time for myself and for making sure the house and kids are calm and clean when I get home…that takes skills. A good start to the weekend, how’s your’s?
p.s. sometimes you just need to feel fancy and wear every pattern and color you own. yesterday was that day. :)
