Girls Weekend!

This week has been crazy and busy. We had Lake Day with our 20s group, which was a great day out at Lake Lavon! Despite the 108 degree temps, we had a lot of fun! We had tubing/water-skiiing, a sand volleyball tournament, horseshoes, a watermelon eating contest, ultimate frisbee, and lots of time just hanging out with fun friends! The heat really zapped all of my energy though, and I feel as though I am still trying to recover from that epic day :) I really wanted to go to sleep at 8:30 last night, but made myself stay awake until 9:30...that's better, right? haha

Some of the girls at Lake Day!

I am heading out of town next week for work, so of course a lot of things need to be done before I am out of the office for that trip. But what I am most looking forward to is Girls Weekend with two of my sweetest friends from college- Nicki and Laura! Nicki came home to Texas, so Laura and I are headed to SA town to see her this weekend! It's been a long time since the 3 of us have been together and had time to just hang out, so I plan to soak up every minute of our time together.

I have been friends with Nicki since freshman year at Baylor. She lived next door to me in North Russell Hall, and I was so blessed to have a sweet neighbor who turned into a sweet friend! We used to be mistaken for each other all the time- people thought we were twins! Haha. I think back over the years and how blessed I am to have Nicki as a friend. We had some great times at Baylor, I was privileged to stand with her when she married her best friend, and I am so thankful that the Lord has preserved our friendship through graduation and moving to different cities.

Freshman Year!

I have been friends with Laura since sophomore year at Baylor. We used to ride together to church on Sunday mornings, which gave us a good chance to get to know each other. But I think we truly became friends the summer we both stayed in Waco. Everyone else had gone home, but we were both working and/or going to school in Waco, so we had some sweet time just me and her. Laura has been a sweet and faithful friend, and I am so thankful for her. I am so grateful to have her here in Dallas with me! From our "Erin and Laura Go To..." Adventures to hanging out with our puppies or just  grabbing a margarita to catch up on life, Laura is such a sweet blessing to me.

But really, I am excited for the 3 of us to be together this weekend. I don't know what we are going to do, but I am sure it will include lots of good Mexican food, girl time, and catching up on life. I am so thankful for these sweet friends and for the opportunity to spend some time with both of them! I can't wait!
