Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

This weekend was a girlfriend-filled weekend and was exactly what the doctor ordered. On Saturday I went scrapbooking with 5 of my friends and spent the day making lots of cards and I actually only made 1 scrapbook page but that's ok, I really wanted to play with my new stamps that I had just gotten. It was great catching up with everyone and just chatting away. We talked about everything you can imagine and they are really a great support system of mine. It was kind of ironic that my friends that were there have 8 boys between the 5 of them and 0 girls - gosh what are those boys going to do when they grow up? They have the funniest stories about their boys and they just love their kids dearly but when they get away for the night watch out - they are full of energy and just itching to chit chat with the girls.

Today was another girlie day and it started with some champagne mimosas and chocolate covered strawberries - yes, does it get any better than that? Then the girls from my Tuesday night girls book club went and saw the movie, "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and it was such a cute movie. Isla Fisher was adorable even though her outfits were a bit outrageous to say the least. Somehow she was able to pull it off but if I tried it would be a disaster. I think I'll stick with my jeans, trouser pants, cotton tees, and sweaters but I do have her love of purses. There were 20 of us that ended up at the movie and then we headed out for lunch which was so much fun. Sunday morning is a great time to head to the movies and we are already talking about seeing "He's Just Not That Into You" next weekend. We can't seem to get our hubbies to take us to these chic flicks so why not grab a girlfriend and go?

All of this girl time and shopping got me in the mood for - well - SHOPPING! But don't worry, I didn't use a credit card and actually headed to the new Goodwill store that I've heard so much about. I ended up getting some great deals and they all still had the tags on them so the stuff was never worn. I ended up with 2 pairs of tights, camisole, bra, belt, and a picture frame all from Target and it only cost me $12.24. Now that's called shopping - the hunt for the coolest stuff but at the lowest prices imaginable. I must admit I was green with envy when I saw the woman in front of me buy 2 brand new North Face jackets with the tags still on them for under $20! How come that couldn't have happened to me? I guess it just wasn't meant to be but their is always next time.
