Two weekends ago, I drove to St. Louis to spend time with these ladies -- most of whom I had never met before in my life, other than online.
My grandmother told me to bring mace with me (a lot of it). My mom worried.
And I had a BLAST!!
11 women -- with one thing in common -- all of us had babies born in November 2007. Two of us had babies born on the same day (maybe more...). Each of us have a love for life, cupcakes, crafting and fun.
Much of the weekend was spent getting to know each other. There was a lot of talking, a lot of giggling, a lot of late night coffee drinking. Perhaps not as much crafting as we had originally intended or wished for.
I spent the weekend with this wonderful machine:
The Cricut... a dangerously wonderful machine that I may have to put on my Christmas wish list for this year....
All in all, in was a wonderful weekend. Much too short -- next time, I'll be sure to work in a long weekend so I can enjoy more time with the ladies!!
Thanks for the great time, and to Emily for opening up her home and her city for us!
