Friends


I know some people who know me now with laugh but I was pretty shy and NOT confident when I was little. We moved a bit when I was in school so that didn't help. Shy kid in a new school = I was a good student who would stay after to help the teacher clean up. Capital L on my forehead, I know.
I moved here when I was 17 and have been here ever since-22 years or so and that is the longest I have been in 1 place. Although I wasn't born here, to me I belong here.
I have been married, had a couple of great jobs, had 2 terrific daughters and bought a house. In doing all of these things I think I have moved myself down the list of importance. This Holiday season seems like the perfect time to get back together with my friends and have some fun.
Saturday night I went to a friend's house for a house party extravaganza including Party light, Pampered Chef, Tastefully Simple and Silpada. This meant tons of people, great food and drinks, and beautiful candles and jewelry. I probably stayed too late as one of the last people there but I had a great time and got to see people I miss. I even bought a couple of raffles tickets and won $42 worth of Pampered Chef product.
Sunday my friend Bonnie and I headed out for some Christmas shopping and a yummy lunch at Panera Bread. Mmmmm...Panini's are my new favorite. This weekend ended up being just what I needed.
Now onto next weekend with a reunion of the WPG on Friday night and my work Christmas party on Saturday night. Hopefully more fun is in my future.
