This Ones For The Girls


This past weekend was our annual Girl’s Weekend.  All my sisters and my mom get together for a weekend of laughter, hugs, crafting, talking, singing, and eating (lots of eating!).

We had such a wonderful time together.  It is a special time of girl talk and I wish we could do it more than once a year.  Never do I laugh as much or as hard as I do as when I am with my sisters!  They each have such a dry wit, especially my oldest sister and youngest sister who had us cracking up the majority of the time with their one liners!


This year was extra special because we were able to celebrate my mom’s 60th birthday and Shelly’s 40th birthday.  There were gifts, cards, humor and CAKE!

100_7954This cake was SO scrumptious! It is a recipe that I have wanted to try for over year. I wanted to make this cake so much that the magazine that featured the recipe has been sitting behind my recipe box for a year, waiting for our girl’s get together. It was well worth the wait. Every bite was divine!

We did allow two boys to attend the party.

100_7950My dad (since it was house where we held the party) and Aidan, my nephew, Heidi’s son.  Of course Aidan didn’t seem to mind being surrounded by a bunch of women. He rewarded us with giggles and smiles. And we rewarded him with hugs and kisses!  My dad would never mind having all his girl’s around, even for him it was a special time (and we fed him REALLY well!).

After a weekend of staying up late to scrapbook and chat, losing an hour of sleep due to daylight savings time and sitting up half the night with Lauren last night because she was croupy, I’m in need of some sleep.  My mind is in a fog, just a wee bit today. But, I wouldn’t have traded that weekend in for anything! It was just what I needed.


Oh, and Reese, sorry I didn’t get a better picture of you.  But, you know, you were on a mission to get that scrapbook done! :) Great job, by the way!


  1. What fun, a girls weekend! Honey, that cake, you'll have to share...don't leave us hangin' out here!!!

  2. I have 2 sisters, a sister-in-law and 4 neices....what a fantastic idea!

  3. How fun and so special! What a blessing to have so many wonderful women in your life:)

  4. How fun!! Sister's are such a blessing. I have five of them - all younger then me. It's been awhile that ALL of us have been together, at the same time for an extended period of time.

    You inspire me to organize "an event"...something like this.

    I was wondering why you were not in the group picture. Now, I realize. Grandpop wouldn't give up the little guy, in order to take a picture with you in it, eh?

  5. Sounds like you had a great weekend. Thanks for sharing the fun with us. :)

  6. That is so wonderful. I love time with my sisters. I am so happy for you. The cake looks AMAZING! Are you going to share it with us?

  9. Sounds like you had a wonderful time! Your nephew is absolutely adorable! And that cake....oh that cake looks absolutely delicious!

  10. Sounds wonderful! Girl's weeknds are always great :).

  11. Sounds like so much fun! I don't have any sisters and always wondered what I was missing out on. Now I get to enjoy it watching my own girls. Sisters really have a special bond.
