I was having a girls weekend with 3 of my best friends from growing up. We hadn't seen each other in 10 years and decided it was time for a girlfriend reunion. Our husbands were sweet enough to take care of things at home, so we were able to spend an extra long weekend in Las Vegas. There was a lot of this going on...
So beware. Lots of pictures. We had our camera's with us everywhere we went. I just picked some of my favorite pictures to highlight our trip and all of the fun we had. We all met at the airport on Thursday, coming in from many different places. Then we headed to our hotel room where they threw me a surprise baby shower. I wasn't expecting that at all and it was such a fun surprise. I was spoiled with some of the cutest outfits! I will think of you girls every time I dress my baby in them.
Our weekend consisted of many late nights giggling in bed, just like back in the day. Lots of girl talk . Laying by the pool, shopping, food and getting dressed up to hit the town at night. We enjoyed hanging out at fun restaurants and people watching. It was just fun to be together again and make a whole new set of memories.
One thing I realized is how some things never change. Time can go by, 10 years is a long time, but once you make great friendships time really doesn't matter. It definitely didn't feel like it had been 10 years. We stepped right back into the comfort of our old friendships instantly. We each had changed so much. We aren't the same people we were 10 years ago. We noticed that all of the good things about ourselves, all of our strong qualities, were just better and much more a part of who we are today. I guess that's what maturity and life's lessons do for you. Being a wife and a mother teaches you a lot. I'm glad that we can share our hardships with each other as well as our blessings. I miss you girls and can't wait for our cruise in 2-3 years!!!
