Girls Weekend!

The thing I miss most about not living in Las Vegas is not seeing my walking club every Mon.-Thurs. night at approximately 8:30! These ladies were my best friends and we share many memories from spending so much time "working out" every weeknight. I didn't have any family in Vegas for a bit and I considered these ladies my Vegas sisters. So we decided to meet up in St. George last weekend for a much need girls weekend away. We've talked about doing this for many years and I guess we finally made it happen.

We ate dinner at the Brick Oven Friday night and did a little shopping. We stayed up until 3:00 in the morning chatting and watching each others wedding videos. We had some great laughs.

What do think of our matching headbands?!? Those would have come in handy walking on windy winter nights! :) L to R: me, Barbs, Kelly, Allison W., Allison F., Naquel

We all bought the same plaque to remember the trip; "A friend is like a four leaf clover, lucky to have & hard to find." Aww!

Saturday we did a little more shopping and went to lunch at 5 guys! Yummy!

Thanks ladies for the great weekend! You are all such great examples to me and I truly value our friendship! Thanks for being so awesome! Can't wait until the next weekend away! Keep in touch! Love you all!

Happy Birthday Hannah!

Yesterday was Hannah's 7th birthday! We celebrated by going out to dinner as a family Friday night at Red Robin! (her choice). She loves getting the spaghetti & salad and she can eat the whole thing! She also loves the free birthday dessert!

Hannah got an American Girl Doll for Christmas and for her birthday present she wanted the matching pajamas, robe & slippers! So adorable!

Saturday she had a party with 9 girlfriends! It was a slumber party without the sleepover! All the girls wore their PJ's & brought a stuffed animal. We decorated bags, painted nails, watched a short movie while eating pizza & popcorn, had a pinata, ate cake & ice cream & opened presents! It was a fun & crazy 2 hours! Thanks to Aunt Keri for coming to help & to Nana for watching Jack during the frenzy! Hannah has been lucky to make so many new, great friends since we moved here & she has a few fabulous old friends from when we lived here before too! Such sweet & generous girls, she got lots of nice presents! :)

Blingin' out the bags!

10 fun friends!

Hannah Montana anyone?

A pink bubblegum ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins! YUMMY!

Best buddies! Hannah was so sweet to invite her brother Nick too!

We sure love our Hannah Banana and are so glad she is a part of our family! Happy Birthday sweetheart!
