The past two weeks have been a whirlwind of non-stop activity for this housewife. I went with some girlfriends for a weekend getaway and then Labor Day weekend our family went with some friends to Lake of the Ozarks for a fun-filled weekend. In the middle of all that I've helped a dear friend and her girls deal with some horrific family issues. I'm so glad I (and my family) can be there for them. They have a long road ahead.
Some super great girlfriends - who make me laugh so hard I feel like I'm getting a workout.
Loaded down and headed for the hills of Missouri to this wonderful place.....
My husband didn't really dig when all of us girls sang in the car (he had on headphones that weren't even plugged in just trying to block the noise!!) What a sport! ;) He may or may not have put those on whenever I started teaching the girls the song On Top Of Spaghetti.....
My daughter, her friend and me Labor Day weekend
Two of my friends' daughters and my little one - chilling out while waiting for the fireworks show.
Good old fashioned chicken fighting!
I just have no words....
My husband and one of his favorite (and, very appropriate) t-shirts!
My great friend and cohort here at The RHOK - Mrs. Montgomery.
Dana, Jen, me... our picture is missing our friend Kari - they headed back a day early.
I seriously have an addition to photography apps on my iPhone.
This is a picture I edited of my friend's apple martini. Doesn't it look cool?! Please say it does so I don't feel like a goober! (The photo app used is called Fotolr.)
We had the best seats poolside all weekend long.
Y'all come back now, ya hear?!
The last night of the Labor Day weekend, the resort goes all out with the best fireworks show I've ever seen. They also have a D.J. playing dance music so you can dance with your kids. It really is just an incredible night of family fun. Here are a few of my favorite videos:
My little one also started playing soccer for the first time. They've had two practices and a game. They need more practice is all I'm sayin'... But, I was the loudest mamma on the sidelines. Of course, those of you who know me personally, this comes as no surprise. I couldn't be more proud of how well she did, especially considering she hasn't ever played before. I've already got our goals set up in the backyard so we can do lots of practicing at home. No, I'm not competitive at all. I don't care if they don't keep score, I do. Ha!
