Random Photo Friday

Last weekend the guys headed to camp to watch a bunch of noisy cars go around and around in an oval for hours The Daytona 500, so the girls stayed home and had some girl time. Translation: eating fast food, playing card games, and watching Lifetime movies. After our littlest one turned in for the night, of course. My sister Margie and Madison's friend Jessica were visiting too. : )

Pennsylvania weather...snow one weekend, spring temps the next. My little one was out before mass without a coat. Being super careful not to get her boots wet. : )


Sunday was game day. Have you ever played Uno Attack?
You must. I insist.

We played Old Maid too.
Scooby Doo style.
And yes, I Snap Chatted it.

Later in the week, we got dressed up for a day out on the town.
And yes. She came with me. : )

This weekend is full of happy.
Friday night we are having our friend Blueberry Mary in with my mother for Friday Lenten Fish Frys from our church. The kids call her Blueberry Mary because she and her late husband used to pick blueberries for us each summer. She is a sweet older lady who loves my kids. And they love her.

And Saturday!!!! Saturday is happy happy!
My girl is coming home!
She is flying into JFK on Friday night.
And...another happy!
My sweet and funny and kind blog friend Kathleen and her hubby are picking her up, and welcoming her into their home. Then we are all meeting on Saturday!
How happy is that?
My girl comes home, AND I get to meet a blogger friend I have been reading forever!
She and I share a love for Gene Rayburn and The Brady Bunch.
If that isn't instant friendship, I don't know what is. : )

So...that is what we are up to this weekend.
I hope your weekend is happy happy happy too!
Thanks for visiting! : )
