in Vancouver with 4 gals that I have been friends with FOREVER! I just got back tonight from a super weekend with friend’s that I have known for over 20 years.
I flew out Friday afternoon, my wonderful husband played single dad all weekend (he is so wonderful!), he even cleaned the house before I got home…so lucky :} , I got into Abbotsford around 1PM & Kara & I went & did a bit of shopping & than went back to her place to get ready, we all met for dinner at Milestones, had a couple of drinks (I haven’t probably had a drink in like 8 years!!!), had a yummy dinner, chatted, caught up on each other’s life’s than we went to the casino, I have not been to a casino except Vegas which was probably 8 years or so ago! I’m not a gambler but, I decided to try my luck, I put $20 in the nickel machines & cashed out with just over $200 in less than 10 minutes! after that 2 of my friends & I decided to go to the lounge & listen to the band, they were very, very good, so we danced for a while & than we went home around 1AM, crashed around 2AM, up at 8AM (argh!) & than my friend Kara & I went for a long walk to Starbuck’s for a latte & conversation, than we went & did some more shopping, & than we went to see He’s Just Not that into you. A really, cute, fun movie, what a stacked cast. After that we walked again & it was straight uphill the whole freakin’ time (for about 35 mins)!!! Geez! That evening we just hung out watched the hockey game & some UFC, had dinner together & went to bed really early!!! This AM we woke up & went for breakfast at White Spot & than Kara & I looked around some more…wasting time, went for another latte & than it was off to the airport to come home, I was so glad to be home to see the kid’s & my hubby, I miss them so much but, I already miss Kara!
The weather was absolutely gorgeous Friday & Saturday. Thanks Kara & Jim for having me out, it was sooo good to see you both, see you in 2!
Kara & I have been best friends since 1986, we went to high school together, we are indeed like sisters. No matter where we live we have always managed to keep our relationship “real” & close.
Kara & Marlene, we have been friends with Marlene & her 2 sisters for at least 20 years.
Marlene & Me.
Jules, Marlene, Me & Liz (they are sisters).
Marlene, Me & Liz.
It’s amazing, I haven’t seen “The Girls” in a long, long time with the exception of Kara who I visited in September. It’s amazing how we can all just pick up where we left off & be totally comfortable with each other & have so much fun together, it’s like I never left & no matter where our lives take each other I know I can always count on these wonderful, wonderful woman. My friendship with these ladies will last a lifetime & I can only hope that one day my children have amazing friendships like these.
Liz is getting married in June & I look forward to attending her wedding.
Well I should get ready & go to bed as the kid’s are back to school this week, thank goodness & I have a full week ahead of me, especially since I have birthday preparations for my daughter!
