I know I am still behind a vacation post, and it will come, in due time!
First, I want to say Happy Birthday to my bestest friend in the whole wide world. Today is my friend Kim's birthday. We have known each other since I was in the 5th grade and pretty much been BFF's since middle school. She is a year older than me so we got closer in high school. Her senior year she was going through some rough stuff at home and came and lived with me and my family. Let me tell you, aside from all the fun I have had in my life, that was the BEST.YEAR.EVER. We are closer than friends, we are more like sisters. Our kids call us Aunt Niki and Aunt Kim. We had not seen each other in SIX years when KJ and I headed to Louisiana for our 4th of July vacation. It was the best time. I can tell you it felt like not a day had gone by since I had seen her. I told her I loved her more than chocolate and coke. If you know me and how much I love those 2 things, then you know how much love that is! Anyway, I will tell you more about her in the pending vacation post!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY P-NUT!!!!!
Now, on to this past weekend! I had a great time...until I didn't lol. Friday night I left work and went home and packed some things for a weekend down in Pearland. Liana (another amazing BFF) and I were going to hang out with some friends on their new patio. We were having fajitas and just hanging out. We had fajitas and Coronas and had the best time just being silly and laughing our butts off! I have some good friends! We have SO much fin when we are together!
Saturday, we slept LATE and finally decided to get up and get moving. We went to see Magic Mike (I know, but it was REALLY good and not just for the naked Channing Tatum and Mathew McConaughey). My AWESOME friend Andi met us there and we had a great time. After the movie Liana and I went to church and heard a great sermon then went for some wings! I am in LOVE with these salt and vinegar rubbed wings at Buffalo Wild Wings...I can't get my fill! So, while there my friend Cody convinced us to head up to Big Texas to meet him and his friend. We went and we had SO much fun. I love to dance and Cody is a great dancer.
Sunday we got up, had some breakfast and then I headed over to my mom's. As the day went by I started feeling crappier and crappier. e had family dinner with my dad's cousins. It was nice to see them and hear old stories about my grandparents and great grandparents. Finally, I felt so bad I had to go home. I was running fever and coughing. I have been sickish for about 2 weeks and it is finally getting its best of me. I stayed home Monday and recovered and well, didn't really recover.
I am still coughing like a mad woman and can't really sleep, but the fever is gone. SO, I am working on feeling better!
I do have to say, I LOVE my life. I have an AMAZING, beautiful, hilarious, and smart daughter (the list goes on, but I would be here all day). I have wonderful parents who would do anything for anyone and love me more than you can imagine. They are also the PERFECT grandparents. Kendall loves them more than me I think HAHA. I have GREAT GREAT friends. I can count on them whenever I am feeling blue to pick me up and make me smile. They are not all close to me and I can't just pop in and see them whenever I want (well I could, but that would require some drive times), but I know that they are there for me. And the best part is, I am having FUN! I don't do anything I don't want to and am loving life. I am BLESSED!!!
I have a BUSY weekend coming up so I will update Monday with that, but in the meantime, I will try and get that vacation post up!!!
