I have been a bad blogger. I got awarded then abandoned my blog. I really tried to keep up with all of you for a while, but alas, even that fell by the wayside. I won't make excuses for my bad behavior, other than life just got in the way. We are gearing up for a busy summer, so I won't lie to you all and say it won't happen again, but hopefully I will be soooo excited about all our adventures that I won't be able to wait to share them will you!
It is not only you, my bloggy friends, that I feel like I have been neglecting, by my live in person friends as well. You see, I have 3 great friends with birthdays in May. We will call them L, R and S. L and R are turning 30, so big deal celebration, right? I mean they took me to Austin to have a huge blowout bash. So, what are you going to do for these great friends you may ask. Not as much as I would like to. There are a few barriers in the way.
1. We are going camping Memorial Weekend (with the kiddos) and renting cabins as a group, so the money we would have spent on a party for them is going toward this trip.
2. L is preggo with twins, so no bars or drinking for her.
3. S is married to L so he's on a tight leash.
So here's what we are doing. We all went out for lunch last weekend for L's B-day. We are going out to a concert (Stoney LaRue) on Friday for R's B-day, and we are trying to get the whole crew together to BBQ and swim on Saturday. I am also taking R to get her nails done on Friday.
I feel pretty lame in the party planning department (especially considering most of what we are doing was not my idea). What to you all think? Do you have any ideas I can claim as my own? Only R will know the truth because she reads my blog. Hi R...you ready for mani pedi pampering on Friday?
