Surprise Birthday Weekend at the Beach

"Surprise! We're taking you to the beach for a weekend of girl bonding!"
"Yup, let's go NOW."
"Okay then. Ben, good luck with the kids, I'm going to the beach with my friends."
That's basically how it went down Friday night. Me and 9 of my friends went to my parents beach house and I had the time of my life. I seriously needed this weekend. I didn't realize that I needed it, but I did. I was able to goof off and be silly and tell embarrassing stories all weekend. And I managed to eat enough junk food for an army. (Just so you know, for breakfast I ate chips and guacamole, 2 doughnuts, a diet Pepsi, and a banana. It all went downhill from there.) It was a wonderful weekend and I'm so grateful for my friends and the wonderful women that they are.
We were able to photo document a lot of the fun so I want to share some of my fun pictures, but I promise I won't share any of the REALLY embarrassing ones. :-)

Sounds like bliss! All moms need a weekend like that. And, ohhh, doughnuts. It's been forever since I had a doughnut....

That goodness you had that Diet Pepsi to counteract everything else.

It all balances out when you do that!
