The Perfect Weekend

Do you ever have one of those weekends where every thing goes perfect?  You sit back and realize how much you needed that weekend?

I did.

And boy, I needed it.

We moved from Dallas almost 3 years ago and have remained close to our sweet friends.  The Linebargers are those friends that feel almost as close as family.  Scratch that...closer than family.  As soon as you see each other, you fall right back into step as if there was no time between you.

We were neighbors back in 2002 - it was totally a God thing that led us to that house and the best neighbors in the world.  These 2 girls have essentially grown up together and you should see how close they still are.
We traveled up to the Big D for one great reason.......

To celebrate Baby Emmy Linebarger!!  Due to arrive in less than 2 weeks!!!
 We had a wonderful shower and it was so great to see old friends and relax and visit with everyone.
Sweet Chris took both Sis & ChellBell as his date for the Dads & Daughters dance.  Matt was out of town, so Chris graciously stepped in.

 These 3 are best of friends - they al had their hair done before, did each other's makeup and then stayed up until the wee hours of the night giggling until we made them turn the lights out.
Christie & I had the evening to ourselves, as we headed out for a margarita (me) and fajitas.  But the best part of all was just the hours and hours of talking we did.  Nothing can replace amazing conversations with a girlfriend.  Nothing.  We talked about everything, analyzing situations, coming up with solutions, decorating Bubba's big boy bedroom, online shopping for the kids, checking out this very cool show, "The Unpoppables", sweet Emmy's arrival, and planning the next time we see each other (very soon!!).

The weekend also included great bonding time with my mom, where she insisted I buy 4....FOUR....pairs of shoes (it was all her fault Matt!) and we FINALLY figured out Facetime on our 4Gs.  Yay!!  She kept the boys all weekend where the baby became attached to PaPa and Brody was able to play with his cousin.

It was just one of those great weekends, where you walk away refreshed and ready for the week.  Can't we have those kind more often???

Oh please send one of those weekends my way! :) How FUN to have a girls weekend away to enjoy precious friends. We have friends like that too, and it doesn't matter how much time lapses between visits, we pick right up where we left off. Those are the best kind of friends!

Looks like a great weekend. We live in Collin County. :) We moved here 4 years ago from California and LOVE it! :)

That is awesome!!! I love the girls' hair-dos.

Doesn't Matt know that you have to do what your mother tells you...?

One time at church I heard the pastor say that God is the reason you live where you live and know who you know. It's all because of Him. That really stuck with me.
What a great way to show His love for you...to give you such wonderful friends!

What in the name of TALL is going on in that picture up there? Are those friends really short or are you in 8 inch stilettos?

Cute pics of the girls!

Ahhhhhh. Sounds so nice!! I love weekends like that. I wish we were close to our neighbors. I mean, they're great, don't get me wrong. We're just at different times in our lives, so there's no real closeness there. I love that you and Christie remain so close...and your girls too!! Which by the way, looked adorable all jazzed up for their date! :)

Great pics, as always!

What a fun weekend! The girls look beautiful!!

Myya said...

Soooo glad you had such a wonderful weekend! The girls look absolutely beautiful all done up. What a fun time! Ok so are you super tall? I am only 5'1" so you might only be 5'7" & you'd still be tall next to me :)

It was a fantastic weekend -- I'm hanging on to those moments here in our last few hours before Emmy is born. The shower was beautiful, everything was perfect! But honestly, I would have been perfectly happy just sitting in a McDonalds spending time with you! You're an amazing friend, Becca!

I really should check who logged into my computer last before leaving comments... :-) Surprisingly, Chris AKA Humero did not just type that last one...

Nothing beats a best friend, they're like your favorite pair of jeans, they're always comfortable and they go with everything!
