1. Baby Shower Realness
The Baby Shower on March 5, 2016 reminded me of what truly matters: friendship. I plan on writing a post about this special day, but right now I am just so happy to be friends with these two special women and can't wait to meet this little boy. From bridesmaids to baby shower hostesses, I can't imagine being anywhere else.
I've always loved birthdays and on the birthday of my friends, I love finding an older picture that reminds me of the feelings I had on that particular photograph. Two of my best friends had birthdays twenty days apart, and I am so thankful for the roles they play in my life. Instagram shout-outs are just one way I let them know how much they mean to me, everything from belly laughs to balloon pictures this month.
3. The Tiniest Easter Basket
Every Easter for the past 7 years, I have made my friend Brailyn an Easter basket. It's one of the many traditions I have with her. As she gets older, I want her to know it's not about how big the basket is; Easter is about Jesus and what he sacrificed for us. I want her to know that even if the baskets/buckets get smaller every year, my love and Jesus's love for her doesn't.
4. Quality Time and a Free Pedicure
The last weekend in March, my friend Lila came to town and we spent that Saturday together eating at Newks, buying new sandals*, and getting pedicures. We ended up getting the friend discount and I walked out with free polished toes. I cherish my friendship with Lila so much and I am so glad we make time in our busy schedules to see each other; picking up right where we leave off each time.
**sandals above are not the ones I bought, even though they clearly fit me.
5. My First Murder Mystery Dinner
On March 30, a handful of my best girlfriends invited me to a specific dinner at a restaurant I had never eaten at: Char. It was a Murder Mystery Dinner and it was probably one of the best Wednesday nights and baked chicken entrees I've had in a long time. I am especially grateful to the girl in the white jacket; without her, our wonderful night wouldn't have happened. I can't wait to go to another mystery dinner with The Detectives.
They travel all around Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama and Florida. To check to see if they are coming to a restaurant near you, go to their website here.
