What Happens in Dallas . . .

This past weekend I went to Dallas for a sisters weekend. All five of my older sisters went also! We literally flew in from all four corners of the country (Massachusetts, Washington, Arizona, California, and Arkansas.) None of us were nursing OR pregnant, which is quite a big deal in a family of six daughters.

(From left to right in case you're curious: Robyn, me, Leigh, Laurie, Rebecca, Mikki)
We had such a GREAT time. I really think these get away trips make me a better mother. They rejuvenate me and remind me of how much I love my children. Our weekend in Dallas consisted of shopping, eating out, more shopping, eating out, laughing, and talking, talking, talking. We are NEVER at a loss of words. There is always something juicy to talk about in my family. It is such a comfort to have 5 people who know you SO well . . . almost better than you know yourself unfortunately.
Here we are at a Dallas hot spot eating some fried pickles! They were actually really good. One of our favorite things to do is eat.


We're all total hams in my family, so we had a blast having a karaoke night. Thanks for buying the singstar game Mikki! Here are Robyn and Mikki jammin' out.

I am very blessed to have these 5 amazing people in my life. They have always been there for me in times of trial. They have made me largely in part, who I am today. I feel so blessed to be the youngest, and to have had so much great advice and counsel. I love all of you. I've been sad all week because I'm going through "sister withdrawals." Being the youngest, I think I'm much more attached than the rest of them.

Megga, it was the best weekend ever. I miss you already and can't wait 'til Laurie's 40th bday. But, of course we'll see each other before then. Can we go on a run together when we do?

It looks like it was so much fun. I've always wanted a sister (or sibling for that matter) so i am so glad when people appreciate their brothers and/or sisters. What a beautiful group of women!

Looks like so much fun! I have been checking your blog just waiting for the update on the weekend. (You will still have to tell me ALL the details, though) You guys all looks so cute in the pictures. I'm jealous... it will be awhile before no one in my family is pregnant or nursing.

After looking at your sisters, knowing you and your kids, I have decided that want your genes.

Maybe I will have one of my boys come calling on Lucy one of these years. I need cute grandchildren.

Glad you had fun!

Okay this looks soooo fun! I only have two sisters and I know how much fun we have. I can't imagine six of you together. I assume that husbands and kids weren't invited?? We're trying to pull off something like this in my fam, but it's hard since we are in our child-bearing years, you know? Back in Oct. I went to Utah for a roommate reunion (no kids or hubbies) and it was a blast! You gotta love those get aways!
