Girls Weekend . . .

   I spent the latter part of last week with all of my sisters at Girls Weekend. This is our 3rd year doing it & each year I love it that much more. It is a wonderful time, to hang out with my sisters, craft, talk, stay up late, shop, & just have a break.

 My wonderful hubby took all my boys, including my baby, who as of last week was still nursing. Bless my angelic husbands heart, because that boy cried, a lot. So my hubby took my kids & heading camping & to check on some of the herders & sheep.

 I loaded up in my car, & headed down to my sisters house.
         Me driving solo for a the 1st time in a long time. I am not sure then last time I had so many hours completely to myself in a car.

                                                         We ate delicious food.

  We gave each other demonstrations, taking time to teach each other new things. In this picture my sister The artist, taught us all how to make natural deodorant.  I  love that we teach each other new things, as we go.

  It wouldn't be girls weekend unless we all squished into a vehicle & spent a good portion of the day shopping. We also did a service project prior to shopping all afternoon.

Of course, we had to visit at least one quilt store. My mother & I have a major obsession with quilting & fabric. My mom does some amazing things & makes some beautiful quilts. 


My Artist sister also introduced us to Project Life, & generously gave us the materials to start. I have checked this out so many times over the years, but never had the guts to go for it. I have always been hesitant. We aren't doing this exact binders, because we wanted smaller, more portable ones, but the concept is still the same.

It was a wonderful, wonderful weekend. I came home refreshed & exhausted all at the same time. It was so wonderful to spend time with my mom & 3 sisters. It is one tradition I would recommend to everyone.
