Girl's weekend 2011

Just got home from a fantastic weekend with my friends at Grand Lake, USA!

Us girls decided one day that we were going to make ourselves a priority (over husbands and kids) for one weekend a year, and it starts now! I can't tell you what a fantastic decision that was! We had more fun that we should have, but that is okay every now and then ; )

Our trip got to a bit of a rocky start. The turnpike was shut down because of a fire. We took advantage though, and got out of our cars and stretched our legs.

And take jello shots (those not driving!!)


Lots of people were out of their cars, so we asked a guy to take our picture. Of course, when we got posed and started to take the pictures, the cars started moving! We had to high tail it back to our cars and get moving!

The theme of our girls trip was the 80's. So we had visors, neon tank tops, and sunglasses!

We got in late Thursday night, and got up ready to go Friday morning! We hit the pool with plenty of jello shots and beer in tow.

After too much sun and alcohol, we went to lunch, came back and napped, then showered and got ready to hit the town of Grove, OK!!! Ha!

We went to a few different bars, danced, drank, and sang a lot of karaoke.

Stayed out until 2 AM. Then the next day, we went to breakfast and hit the water! One of the girls has an uncle with a fantastic boat and was so kind to take 9 girls out for the day!

Of course, there was booze, booze, and more booze!

Like a drunk idiot, I forgot that I am not 13 and a gymnast anymore. I was doing backflips off the boat, swimming, treading water, etc...and I woke up SORE this morning!

Anyway, after the boat, we came home, showered, and went out to a nice steak dinner.

We had 2 condos - these lovely ladies were the inhabitants of one condo:

And we stayed in the other:

I have been a "mother" for so long, I feel like I forgot what it was like to have pure girl time. No husbands, not kids, no timelines, no was divine.

I was happy to get home to my family today. David did WONDERFULLY with the kids. The house was clean and all the kids were happy to see momma when I got home.

And now - I prepare for my surgery on Tuesday!

I came across your blog a few months ago and have enjoyed it since then. Just wanted to say that you have a beautiful family and that I am glad you are taking time to enjoy being you. I am also a mother of an almost 2 yr old boy and a set of 2-month old b/g twins. Sometimes we forget about ourselves because of the dedication we have to our children and husband. Glad you had such a great time! Maye.

I have been following your blog since Paige was a baby. My husband & I also struggled with infertility. After going through 2 IVF cycles, we were blessed with our twin daughters, Maya & Suri in December 2006. I don't know how you do it with 3 so young! You are an inspiration!
Good luck with your surgery-I'm looking forward to hearing how your recovery process goes!

Just wanted to let you know that I have been reading your blog for awhile and have really been enoying it! Your kids are so adorable. I myself had IVF and have a 1 year old little boy. I saw the perfect little shoes for your little boys on - you'll have to check them out when you get a chance. They are the cutest little Sooners slip-ons!
