Thanks to my little blogging break, I'm way behind in sharing all the fun things that have been keeping me away!
A few weeks ago, a couple of my girlfriends came to town so we could celebrate one of our best friends who is getting married this September! It was a special bridesmaid weekend we planned to shop for dresses and spend time together celebrating Erica's upcoming wedding. It was such a wonderful weekend. We've all been friends for years (we're talking since we were like, 8) so there is never a shortage of conversation and laughter!
We decided to make the most of our weekend and turn it into a sleepover at my house. We kicked Andrew out of the house Friday night so we could have the place to ourselves, (thanks babe)! We went to an amazing sushi dinner, then out for a couple drinks before heading back to the house. It was such a fun night. Something about this group of girls is unlike any other. We're completely ourselves around each other. We share so many secrets, hysterical memories, and have basically grown up together so it feels like family. I feel so blessed to call them my friends for so many years!
Saturday we were up early for the main event, dress shopping! Erica has chosen blush for the color, and we're all able to pick our own dresses. The first shop we went to was my favorite. There were plenty of styles and designers to choose from and the decor was adorable. I think everyone found a dress they liked here, but since it was our first stop no one made a purchase.

Later that night, we got ready and decided to go out for a few drinks! It was so fun to have a true girls night, we laughed and talked for hours!
On Sunday morning, Jacquie decided to head home early to see her kiddos since she'd been away from them for 2 nights. I know she had a fun, and well deserved, mini-vacation! But we were sad to see her go, because it was time for our next activity, the Giants game!
It couldn't have been a more perfect day for a game! Sunny and warm, the perfect combination for an afternoon at the ball park! And bonus, it was a great game. There were a few great plays and it ended with a walk off home run by Hicks! It was Joy's first Giants game, so I consider her our good luck charm now :)

After years of friendship; moving to new places, supporting each other through both hard times and exciting times, our friendship has remained intact and is stronger than ever. I'm so thankful Erica's wedding has given us the excuse to plan so many weekends together this year. These girls mean the world to me, and I am so thankful for their friendship!
Joy put together this cute video with Flipagram that sums up our weekend perfectly! It was so great spending time with the girls, and I can't wait for the next time we'll all be together again in a few weeks!
I'm not sure if the video works on iPads/iPhones but it should work okay on a computer. FYI there is music to the video if you're at work :)
