Girly Get Togethers

After the chaos of Christmas I had some fun outings scheduled which consisted of friends, food, and shopping. The Friday after Christmas I met some of my High School friends at Pei Wei. We try to get everyone together during the Holidays, which proves to be a rather difficult task. It is always fun to catch up on each other's live (which is now easier since everyone blogs) and laugh at old times.
Moving left to right, Scharee, Cecilie, Sarah, Chesney, Melissa, Me. We missed all you girls that couldn't make it. Maybe next time....

Then Friday Trent's family came up to celebrate the boys birthday. They took the boys shopping to pick out a toy (which was so cute and nice of them). After they were done with that, Teri, Jill, and I did a little impromptu shopping outing. I had a great time strolling the stores not really looking for anything. It was good to get out of the house and relax for a bit.

The next event was the celebration of "Heidi Day." We all met at Pei Wei (yes, again. I don't mind at all because Pei Wei is one of my faves). Afterword, all the girls went shopping, where I found a nice wool coat (a stretch for me since I don't wear nice clothes) and some of the cutest jeans ever (which are inspiring me to get back into the Fat Girls No Mo' program because of a little tightness issue). I always have a great time with my sister-in-laws and love their input on fashion, especially since I have no fashion sense what-so-ever!

Jill, Me, Jamie, Brooke, and Heidi. Teri is taking the picture and poor Jenny caught the horrible cold that I am sure my kids gave to her, so she was at home sleeping.

My after Christmas celebrations were just about as fun as all my actual Christmas celebrations. It was a great ending to a perfect week!

Wow, it's a good thing you like Pei Wei so much. It was fun to hang out and shop. I'm jealous of your new pants. Maybe you could send them my way if you get up one day and decide you hate them. :)
