Girlfriend Time


The alarm clock went off at 3:00 am the other day and I bound out of the bed...
yes I did...I bound out of the bed!

Showered quickly. 
Waved my magic curling iron. 
Sprayed on a little smell good. 
And hit the road.

Who cares that the roosters weren't awake yet?
I had girlfriend time on the other end of that plane ride!

Girlfriends are very important to me.
Do you feel that way?

I love and adore my husband but time with special girlfriends has always
been the cat's meow to me.

Girlfriends welcome you with flowers and pretty earrings.


And help you with your wardrobe.
And the right glass of wine.


Talk with you about life.
Share recipes and decorating secrets.


And so much more!

This girlfriend shared her beautiful home and life with me for a few days and when I came home...
well, I was rejuvenated.

Thank you friend. ♥

Wait till I show you where we went and what I bought!!
Now spill the beans, do you love girlfriend time too?

I adore my girlfriend time too. There's a group of us that try to get together for lunch every couple of months. We always end up talking for hours. Glad you had a great time and can't wait to see more of what you did!

You look fabulous ~ girlfriend time certainly agrees with you. I love my girlfriends and thankfully, most of them live right here, so we connect often. Recently, though, I saw a friend that I hadn't seen in person in 20 years. We kept in touch via email, phone, etc., but it was so great to hug her and chat face to face! We didn't miss a beat!

I love meeting up friends too! Since I have moved to the South, I still see some if not I do keep in touch via email. Glad you had a great time with your friend!

Welcome home! Looks and sounds like you had a wonderful time! Can't wait to see where you visited and what you bought! Hope you'll tell us soon! :) I'm headed to town, lunch included, with a girlfriend tomorrow! I do love my family, but it is nice to unwind with a special friend that shares the same interest! ~Rhonda

Good Morning Stacey!
Girl friend time is just as you said -rejuvenating! Two of my dearest girlfriends moved away and boy do I miss them.
You both look great!

I love my girlfriends! We have been together for over 30 years now and I don't know where I would be without them! My bestie is in Wyoming, but we visit each other twice a year...we talk every week...it is like when we lived around the corner from each other!

Lisa said...

What a blessing to share your life and heart with forever friends! Glad you had a fun time!

It sounds amazing to have girl friend time. I have never experience that. I guess I am all about my family. I love spending time with my hubby and children. Looking forward to the next post. Have an amazing day.

Yes...girlfriend time is the best...and needed. Our gang of girls got together this week to comfort one of ours who just lost her mother. Everyone brought a salad...and we just talked and talked. But sometimes we have fun fun adventures! Sheila

Girlfriend time keeps me sane so yes, I love and depend on girlfriend time to get me through. I'm so glad you were able to enjoy time with your friend as well and her living room is absolutely beautiful, too.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend... :)

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh my, I've been sick and I am just catching up on posts! It looks like you had a great time with your friend. Girlfriend time is essential, and I have some special time with my BFF coming up next month. I am so looking forward to it since she moved to Florida several years ago and we haven't had time together in about 4 years!

Kelly said...

3 am.? Really? You sound like my husband who gets up extra early for his camping/fishing trips with his guy friends. I guess you have to do what you've got to do when you're going out of town. Sounds like your trip was worth it too. Love the picture of you and your friend! I do think getting away makes coming back home that much sweeter.

Sonia said...

Girlfriend time is much fun! Can't wait to see what you bought...btw you and your girlfriend look adorable! I've been on a long bloggy break...getting caught up.

Art and Sand said...

You look so cute!

Girlfriend time is always a good choice.

Steve and I are off to San Francisco on Wednesday and my oldest friend is taking off work so she can join us one day for lunch.
