We Went ~ We Shopped ~ We Survived!

I feel like I have been gone forever
even though it's only been a week

but I am back ~ feeling refreshed
and ready to catch up with everyone!

Last Saturday morning came early
alarm going off at 4am early

after tossing and turning and not getting much sleep
on Friday night

it was all good though as I was at the end of the driveway
at 5 ~ ready for pick up

we made the rounds and picked up the crew
then coffee and hit the road

we all wore our tiaras ~ gave the border guards a laugh
then hit the ground running

we shopped ~ we laughed ~ we shopped

we got carded at Wal-Mart when we stopped for beverages
before going back to the room for the night
I was like "seriously"
we laughed so hard

this was day 2 ~ you can imagine
5 girls ~ 1 room ~ 2 double beds and a cot
and enough bags to sink a boat

after breakfast on Monday we packed up
and set out to pack the truck ~ it was challenging to say the least
we did it though and made a pact that whatever we bought 
on the way out of town ~ you had to hold on your knee!

we did it though ~ tiara's still in tact

we made a lot of memories
and had a blast while doing it

we also talked about doing it all again next year
which makes me smile

this week-end I have to do more fun things like
cleaning & grocery shopping

I also have some reading to do as there are
blogs to catch up on.

Hope you all have a wonderful week-end!

Nothing like a girl trip. I am not a shopper but I would love all the social aspects! Love the sticker on the truck! Have a wonderful week.

This one brought back gal posse and I made plenty of these kind of trips back in the day. What fun!
Going on a road trip next month with a good friend that will be more sedate - but just as many laughs!
Thanks for sharing!
