Sweet Friends!

Last weekend I was able to spend about 24 hours with some of my very best friends. This special group gets together for a weekend about 2 times every year. Most of the time we have a baby to celebrate and this time it was for baby GIRL Junod. Its obviously just a treat to have some much needed girl time but these sweet friends put together a little mini-shower for me. We were missing Shannon M so our time wasn't the same as usual but she was having a pretty wonderful time in the Big Apple with her husband.

Shannon, Me, Lauren
Ann, Caryn, Katy

These two precious angels joined us for our time together. They are the most recent additions to our collection.
Clark and Julia

Pink/Christmas decor which was so festive and creative.
I still can't believe the pink is for MY own baby...

Everyone brought a girly ornament for me to take home and to decorate this sweet little tree.

The pink cuteness inside these gifts was unbelievable.
No clue what to do with pink but it sure is fun!

We have officially named this little sister Georgia Elizabeth Junod.

After lunch, gifts and catching up all afternoon a couple of girls headed home to Waco and the rest of us did a little Christmas shopping for our kiddos, ate some good food at Uncle Julio's and finished off our evening with the usual dressing room pic. When we get together we always stumble on some of the most interesting outfits, dresses and this time...PAJAMAS. If you're in need of an adult sleeper...head on over to your local Target. We didn't buy them, just laughed and took a picture.

After a full evening we headed home for lots more talkin' and hangin' out in our real PJs.

Thank you sweet friends for a really great weekend. Hugging your necks and seeing your faces was much needed. Plus I feel so blessed to have started my pink collection with you girls! Thank you for a great time. I miss you terribly and am so grateful that my Doha move hasn't kept us from seeing each other. I appreciate your sacrifice more than you know. I love you!
(Shannon we really missed you...I hope we don't have another weekend together with one of us absent! Its just not the same!)
