First, I want to blog about what I did this weekend. I went to Bear Lake and met some blogging friends! Yes, you heard me blogging friends! We all rented a cabin together. My friend Cherie from Bakow Babble put it all together. I hitched a ride with 2 friends of mine, Ann and Monica that I have known for years.
I do have to say it was planned out so fabulously! Cherie had us break up into groups of 2 and take turns making the meals, so we only had to pay for one meal, genius! Not to mention we ate well!
This is all of us that came. I am going to go around the table and tell you who every one is, starting on the left, Tauna, Kimmie, Monica, Ann, Katie, Cherie, Brittany, M-cat and Keely.
It was Cherie's birthday the day we got there and I made her a cake.
And yes, we did candles!
She did fabulous, blowing the candles out!
See the yellow candle in the upper right hand corner of the cake? It had melted to almost nothing. It took us a while to light all the candles because they kept going out and we had to relight them.
She then got gifts!
I got her the crown that is on top of her head because she is the queen of ideas! She did plan this get together! Keely made her 4 of these darling towels.
Cherie is a member of the big lip club! So she got us all lips! Too fun!
M-cat and Brittany with the lips!
M-cat was quite the hoot! She had us all laughing! Sad to say but M-cat had to leave the next morning!:(
I had to get one with M-cat!
She was my cooking partner. We cooked breakfast together. I got this picture the night before she left. We all were sad to see her go!
After we all said good-bye to M-cat, we decided to all get ready and go down to the lake.
Kimmie taking a picture of Tauna.
See all the white gravel looking things all over the sand?
They were little shells.
I had to laugh when I heard Tauna say, "Oh, that isn't gravel, they are Carcases"
One of all of us, minus Ann. She was taking the picture.
BTW, I took a lot of these pictures from Cherie's blog.
I love the high V's most of them were making and I love how Keely tucked her feet! The looks on all their faces are the best!
You can kind of see her in the door way. I guess I should have lighten up the picture before sharing it! Oh well, nothing I can do about it now!
After we got back to the cabin, we spent the day...
The Continental Breakfast was perfect for the morning of us leaving! Not only was it the perfect breakfast to be on the go but it was perfect because it showed Katie's and Keely's personalities!
I never knew Kimmie before this trip and I just love her now!!
I really didn't know most of these women until now and I just love them!
She came all the way from Washington! She definitely gets the prize for the one that traveled the farthest! Notice the the pink tiara on Keely's head? It was her birthday on Saturday, the day we left.
Brittany and Katie are the other girls in the picture, they are Cherie's girls! Brittany and Katie are super close. It was fun to see them together. It reminded me of me and my sister. Me and my sister are super close!!
I had such a great time! These women are truly amazing! It was so fun to hang out with them and get to know them! We would stay up until 2 a.m. We didn't want to go to bed. We had such a good time talking together. It was a very uplifting time! I love that we all share the same faith. I love that there was no gossip and I felt so comfortable around them. I didn't feel like I was being judged at all! I really love these women!!!
I had such a wonderful time!! I am so glad I went!!!!
I can't wait to see everyone else's pictures, so that I can add to my collection!!!
