I'm finally able to take a breather and sit down for a chat with you all. My lesson is planned for my GO Girls Group, my ginger cake is made and waiting to be frosted, the dishwasher's unloaded, and a project I'm working on for a friend is well under way. I have much accomplished, but much still to do. I have forced myself to stop and hang out a bit with you all. Because I have just so much to tell you.
Last week I went to Ocean Shores with my Mom & Sis. It was everything you could hope a vacation would be: relaxing, entertaining, and spontaneous. I don't quite have the energy or time to regale you with all the spectacular stories I have swirling in my head, so I'll just throw some pictures at you and call it good. Seriously, I wish that I could be paid to stay home and just write and take pictures. Sigh. Until my dream job somehow materializes, you're just going to have to make do with what I can come up with at 9:30 at night. Definitely not my best material but I'm sure you don't care. Because we're all friends here. And friends are always nice to each other. Even when they don't deserve it. Or when they have spinach stuck in their front teeth. Or they just farted. Or they are sitting on their couch with ratty hair, wearing jeans, tshirt, and a voluminous bathroom because it's more portable than a blanket but just as warm. No comment about which situation you are having to be my friend through at the moment. I trust you are still with me.
Anyway, here's some of our fun. You can click on any of the pictures to see more.
Joel recently bought some property out at Ocean Shores and gave me directions to where it is. After driving up and down the street numerous times, we concluded that this is approximately the location.
The BEST Irish food ever! Seriously fricken amazing!
My stunning sister
My sis happened to say that she was antsy right as we passed a high school field with these just sitting out in the open. I started yelling for my Mom to pull into the parking lot and she did. What a great Mom! Shan and I definitely had some fun with them.
