Time with family and friends.....

A few weekends ago, I had the chance to go to Chicago with some friends, and boy did we shop!!! We had a great time and almost bought IKEA out! I kid you not, there was not an inch of unused space in that mini van! We walked out to the van with 4 carts loaded to the gills(a queen headboard/footboard, 2 dressers, a night stand, a large desk, and bookshelves, and a big chest, and lots of little things too!)And it was a bit of a task to pack it just so, a few of the IKEA workers just sat back and watched(never offered any help)and I think they were laughing at us as we put things in and took them out and rearranged until the last item was in! That was all in the first couple of hours there! We even went back the next morning to grab a few more things before we headed out to MI City! We had a great time together!

Then this weekend I was able to go to a ladies retreat with my Mom, and sisters! While there we were in a cabin with one of my oldest and dearest friends, along with her mom and sister, and several other ladies. We had a wonderful time talking and catching up! It was great to see so many familiar faces, and be around old friends. What a blessing it is to have my Mom and sisters as my best friends, and to enjoy our times together so much!
