Girl's Weekend

On Thursday I went to Alexis' house in Euless to have a girl's weekend along with Lauren and her newborn Cole. I have been friends with Lauren since middle school and friends with Alexis since High School. We try to get together 3-4 times a year. Alexis and I talked Lauren into scrapbooking, so we usually spend many hours doing that. We had a great time catching up on each other's lives, watching some favorite TV shows and movies, eating out, shopping, and of course, scrapbooking.

Friday night as we were headed to dinner Lauren's dad happened to call from Abilene to see if we knew of the bad weather coming our way. We had no idea how severe the weather was. We simply thought it was going to rain. We immediately changed our dinner plans and decided to pick up some food and head to Alexis' house. As we were waiting for our food a single piece of hail randomly landed in the parking lot. It wasn't even raining although the weather sirens had begun blaring loudly! We were extremely scared at this point. As we approached Alexis' house golf ball size hail began to fall. We had to run inside quickly so we wouldn't get pounded by the hail. We all made it in safely, even baby Cole. The hail storm only lasted about 10-15 minutes and then it was bright outside again. It left behind lovely dents in our cars. :( I guess that is why you have car insurance.

I was thankful for the time spent with my friends. They are such a blessing in my life! I am also thankful of my dear sweet husband who agrees to keep the girls so that I can have these refreshing girl weekends.

I don't have any pictures to show for this weekend. We were too busy talking and having fun. I will have dig up some old pictures of us from our teenage years. Ha!
