So, how was your weekend? Do anything fun and exciting?
As I mentioned in Friday's post, my hubby fired up the ole grill and we had some family over. For the first time in a while, Jayla was able to play with her 2 cousins, Madesan & Haidyn. My goodness, when I tell you that girls really do know how to scream and have fun...trust me on that one. Now, it's loud enough around here with just Jayla running around laughing, screaming and dancing. But when you add 2 more girls to the mix, it's unlike anything you can imagine. :-)
Needless to say, Jayla was...how you say in the South?...PLUM TUCKERED OUT!!! :-)
This actually worked out well for us though. Marque and I were able to go out on a date last night and my MIL watched Jayla for us. Mom told us this morning, that Jayla was asleep probably before we got off of our street...lol. Poor thing was exhausted from all that playing.
Back to this date...Some of Marque's high school buddies invited us to get together last night. We've been planning this for about 3 weeks now. There were about 20 of us at this little pub and we had such a great time. His classmates are the sweetest people. And guess what? We even did a little Karaoke. I've never done it before, so it was fun to do it with a group of people. We sang, "We are Family" by Sister Sledge. Remember that one? One of the girls that was there did a few solos for us. TOO FUN!!! Anyway, we had a ball. I think we got home a little after 1 this morning.
We had Jayla take a couple pictures of us before we left. This first shot, she took of me. She said that she just LOVED my dress; because I NEVER wear dresses :-). And just a little note for all you mothers out there with daughters in the kindergarten age range....it is NOT a good idea to take them with you to buy a new bra to wear with your new dress. EVERYONE in (or in close proximity outside) the dressing room WILL know what size bra you wear. AND they will be advised that, 5 year olds do NOT have boobies as big as their mommies....but they will as soon as they turn 6! LOL
And here's me and my good lookin' husband. Jayla said she could NOT believe that daddy was wearing a yellow shirt...because it does not go with a single thing that mommy has on. But that the black pants were PERFECT! :-)
I'm sorry folks, I just HAVE to say...we make a pretty cute couple :-). I love when we get to go out together and just enjoy eachother. We have a ball.
UPDATE: One of Marque's friends took a picture of us at the pub we were at. And he sent us a copy. Thanks, Mike.Well, that's about all we did this weekend. And being 40...that's enough...hee hee.
This weekend leads me to todays "Inspired to Inspire". As I mentioned, we had a really nice time with some of Marque's friends from high school. I have a hard time calling them HIS friends. As over the years, they have become very good friends of mine as well. So I dedicate this Inspiration to them.
" The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him."
Have a beautiful week and Be Inspired...I AM!!
