Here's to you Katie!

Happy Birthday to my best friend Katie! She is such an amazing friend, wife and mother. I feel really blessed to have been friends with her for SO long, (21 years) and have been close through all the years and still be as close as ever! We can talk forever about anything...our husbands, our families, memories from growing up, life, makeup, the list goes on. I really value her opinions on everything. When I need to vent or tell someone something that happened, its her. I also look up to her. She is so smart and just generally knowledgeable about so much! We've asked ourselves if we hadn't met when we were so little and grown up as neighbors, could we have met when we were older and still be close? I actually said no, because we both went through different life experiences at different times. What kept us close was our history. So i'm thankful for meeting her so long ago. I think she's my friend soulmate :)

Jillian, you're in this one above!

Happy Birthday Katie!!!

Since Katie is STILL internet-less...

I'll take it upon myself to post on her behalf (and becuase I love her and her kids SO much!)
Last weekend Katie and I got pedi's at my favorite place. We took the kids with us, Maddie got her toes painted bright green and Delaney was a good little girl and sat on Katie's lap the whole time. While we were out doing that, Randy and Dave went to Randy's friends car place to look for a new car for Dave. (Yes...he sold his baby. The charger has a new home now, but we're ok with it! Much good came from it, which is great.) After that we came back to Katies and relaxed with the kiddos in the front yard. Delaney is walking now!

I can't believe how big she's getting!

While we were out enjoying the afternoon and a soda, Katie gave Delaney her first drink. (Don't worry...it was a Diet Hansens).

The looks on her face from the carbonation were classic!

Later that evening we went to dinner and miniature golfing with Katie, Randy, and Mark and Karen Fisher, which was a lot of fun! I LOVE relaxing Saturdays spent with friends.

Dave & Oscar

We were hanging out with David and Leslie on Friday night, and Dave discovered Oscar, their fish. I swear he did this for like an hour. It was hilarious. Now I'm just worried that he'll do this to our kids when we have children. haha.
