Great weekend!!!

What a wonderful weekend it was, I'm so glad I got to spend time with Vickie and Jacquie and our sweet patient husbands, we had a great time! The weather was perfect, the food was amazing, the company was even better.  Only problem was that an entire Fraternity decided to stay in the same hotel as us and poor  Vickie got sick.  I'm so glad that we were able to get together, I miss them already and I'm ready for the next visit.
Here's a quick recap:
We met at the hotel around one, walked around the Quarter looking for a restaurant, but we were off a bit, so we settled on one we stumbled upon, ate lunch, met Super Man, had cocktails on Bourbon Street, freshened up, caught a cab, went to dinner, had more drinks, listened to jazz, enjoyed wonderful conversation, danced a little, laughed a LOT...lather, rinse, repeat!
All in all a fabulous weekend with some fabulous friends.  On Saturday Vicky met us at Cafe' Du Monde for beignets and cafe' au lait, it was great to meet her, although it was a short visit.  She is as sweet as she seems on her blog and she looks amazing!!! 
I'm shocked sometimes at the friendships that have come with my band and this blogging experience.  What a blessing it has been.  I will leave you with a few pics of the weekend.  I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Guess who I'm going to see on Friday?

I'm so excited, in just two days I'll be in New Orleans with my girls Vickie and Jacquie! And of course our hubby's too! I can hardly wait! 
Vickie and Jacquie last year in Chicago for BOOBS2...waiting patiently for our deep dish pizza!!!

 Vickie was my roomie the first year of BOOBS and the three of us hung out and really hit it off, so last year Jacquie roomed with us too.  I am so excited to spend time with them again and  I can't wait to show them New Orleans! I will post pics next week!

Have a great weekend!
Big Hugs!

Looking ahead...even if it's just toward the weekend!

Hello, I hope this post finds you well.  I've got my eyes on the weekend... and it can't get here soon enough.  I'm tired...physically and emotionally! Whew!!

The election is over and I must say, this has been a difficult time for me.  I guess it's the first time that I've been through an election of this proportion while being so connected through Social Media.  I'm truly shocked by how divided our Country has become. I find it sad that people spout hateful words to one another merely because we disagree. Tolerance is in great demand. I have resisted making any political comments on Facebook or Twitter, although I've had to bite my tongue at times to stop myself.  My oldest son voted in his first Presidential election and it was a big deal to him, as it should be.   We are proud of this Country and of the Freedoms that we have.  As an American I will support my President regardless of my preference, but not everyone feels this way.  I think that it's a shame that billions of dollars are spent on campaigns when that money could be used for real good.  I think that there are hateful, intolerant people on both sides and sadly freedom of speech does not come with a filter or kindness.

This concludes my one and only political rant.  God Bless America!

Big Hugs!
