Girls Night Out!!! I have had two in a row this week and it has truly been FABULOUS! I don't think there is anything better in this world then getting together with a group of friends and talking, laughing, relaxing, sometimes crying (whether it be at the expense of a joke or sharing a burden). I just LOVE my friends. I am so blessed to have a large friend base. I haven't done the best job with keeping up with my childhood friends and that makes me a little sad, but my college, work and community friends (and blogger friends, too) are the B E S T!!!

I had a tough day today. Nothing major, just some things going on. My best friend in the world knew I was stressed and said, "Be there in 10 min." She dropped everything and came by the house, picked me up and we went to Starbucks. That's what life is all about...being there for each other, through the good times and the bad.

Lately, there have been so many instances where friends have turned on each other over petty, silly things. I am so thankful that I have "true blue" girls in my life. I love them and I want them to know it. Girls (for those of you that read my heart you!).

Speaking of are a few of Paige and her buds... (because you know if I put up pics of my friends, I might not have them anymore : ) LOL)

I am so glad you got to have 2 GNO's.....I could use one myself!! You are so fortunate to have so many wonderful friends surrounding you....I know it has been a tough week for ya, and if I was in driving distance, I would have been at your door in a hearbeat....although I probably would have taken you for a cosmo:)

What a great friend! If I lived near you, I hope we'd be friends, too. I just love your heart - and the way you look at the world.

Colleen said...

I agree, true girlfriends are essential to life. I'm glad you have a great support group, Missy. :)

(And Starbucks can improve any day!)

It's officially time to lock Paige that those boys keep their little hands off!! She is SO BEAUTIFUL! She looks so mature! Love girls and their little sweet.

Can't believe we still haven't gotten together. That's a shame. We're just too stinkin' busy all the time. I still want to, however. We'll make it happen...eventually. I need to catch up with Amy L. too! Tell her hi from me. Well, we'll talk soon!


Heather said...

As always, great pics of Miss Paige & company. She is such a beautiful girl.

What would we do without friends?! Sure wish we lived closer. Would really enjoy hanging out with ya!

Nicole said...

You have such a beautiful blog-love your pictures-you're an amazing photographer!
And great blog about "my kid is better than yours" I mean SeriouslY! I can't believe a mom would say that to another mom! That's pretty sad. I'm all about encouraging your child to be the best they can be and that's it!
Thanks for the post!
