Mommies On A Playdate!!!

This past weekend, I was away on a rare girls' getaway to celebrate my "big sister's" 40th birthday!!! This group of friends date back to almost twenty years ago when we were all still teenagers. Time sure flies --- I cannot believe that we are now all mommies in our thirties (well, except for one of us, that is!) with ten children among the five of us!!!

We partied all weekend starting with a dinner and movie on Thursday night, high tea on Friday, a short detour to shop at IKEA, dinner and live theatre on Friday night, a slumber party and of course, shopping all day on Saturday! We even managed to have a short dip in the hotel's hot tub.

We also managed to relive old memories by cramming into a photo booth at the mall (see photo at the top)! I must say that I think we all fit better in there twenty years ago! We all had a GREAT weekend --- it was over way too fast! This saying is very true --- time flies when you're having fun!!! A huge thank you goes out to all our hubbies who stayed home with children all weekend long.

So, here's to my "big sister" --- CHEERS and HAPPY 40th!!! P.S. I love you.

May our loving Heavenly Father continue to bless you and keep you; may He make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; may He turn His face toward you and give you peace!

And finally, here is the lesson I learned from this weekend --- when you are 36, do not party until 3am for two consecutive nights thinking you can bounce back as quickly as when you were 18. It is Monday today and I am still feeling the effects of sleep deprivation --- my head is still groggy! I am now off to make myself some more coffee!!!

Proverbs 17:17a (NIV) --- "A friend loves at all times."


  1. Good thing the pregnant one wasn't able to attend the phonebooth session, I doubt that we would have all fit!!!!

    Here's to good memories and many many more to come!

  2. At 31, my body isn't bouncing back as quickly either! *YAWN* But I had greeat time! Happy birthday, J! PS. I Love Y'all! :) I want to go to Ireland :)

  3. I think photo booths these days are definitely smaller :)

  4. Preggo Brain: It's NOT a PHONEBOOTH, it's a photobooth!
