I have been absent for a few days due to the crazy busy schedule I have led over the weekend. Between my mission to find cool stuff at garage sales (which didn't really happen), helping out with the Relay for Life garage sale for the team that I am on and the fact that my best friend ever from high school drove 12 hrs to visit me for 2 days- it has kept me on my toes.
I did however come across 3 elmo's for my daughter, a lot of cool books and a bedside table that I am going to redo. The garage sales were extremely lame though, so I hope they get better as summer goes by- finger's crosses!
We raised a lot of money at our Relay for life garage sale which is good, but it was a long day and I had to take my 9 mo daughter with me ( just try to put yourself in my shoes), and I got yelled at by a very rude old man. Olivia wanted to crawl around on the floor and it was nasty and I was freaking out about germs, and then everyone thought I was nuts for passing around hand sanitizer but seriously money is just plain gross! Everyone was touching it, then my daughter and the floor was gross and it just gives me the heeby jeebies!
The best thing of all though was that my friend Emma drove 12 hrs to come see me on Saturday and we had a great time. The hubba wubba even made us jello shots and we stayed out until last call Saturday night which I can't even remember staying out that late before, but then again maybe there is a reason I don't remember! Sunday, we took a nice drive around town, and took a walk, and we went fishing. It was just a great time, we have definitely mellowed out since our summer breaks spent floating on the lake with a bottle of rum in hand, those were good times but I think we might have killed a few brain cells- perhaps when we tried riding our bikes through the shallow end of the lake or cliff- diving into the lake, or scorching our skin for the perfect tan (yes, we both realized we are getting wrinkles now). While I will never forget the wild, fun, crazy times we have had together- this visit was just perfect and I think it says a lot about a friendship when you cannot see each other for almost 2 years and still pick up right where you left off without skipping a beat.
