A book that Meggan recommended…this could be us!

girls from ames

This is one of my favorite books (recommended by Meggan who always has good recommendations on EVERYTHING!).  It reminds me of our story.  There is something about those friends you have known since childhood…  xoxoxo

my new succulent arrangement


I went to the nursery intending on buying several succulents and creating my own original arrangement, but thee individual succulents were $5 each and this beautiful arrangement with 7 succulents was only $30.  So I saved time and money.  I have it as a centerpiece on my kitchen table and I will move it out to the patio when we are out there hanging out.  :)

Have you heard of the concept of a drybar?  It’s a salon where you get a blowout and style…no cut, no color…just a great look for $40…not bad.  We want to do this on our next girls weekend.  Check it out! http://www.thedrybar.com

Welcome to our blog!

There are something about those friends from childhood…you can go months or even years without talking and when you finally connect again, it’s like no time has ever passed.  We are 7 “girls” from Iowa who have been friends since middle school, some of us have been friends since elementary school.  We’ve been through the ups and downs of life and we truly “get” each other.  After our 20 year reunion, we decided to do a girls weekend every year.  Meggan makes sure that this happens no matter what.  And thank goodness it does.  Girlfriends are the best therapy.  It helps, of course, to add coffee and wine!  We’ve gone to Las Vegas, Okoboji, IA, Kansas City, and Dallas.  When we get together we discuss all aspects of life.  We also share our favorite things.  If we have a product we love, we share it.   We wanted to share it with others, too, especially other 40-something “girls.”
