Bahama Mamas

Okay, so I'm spoiled rotten! I wish every mother could go to a tropical island for a week to unwind with her best friend! We got hooked up with a free hotel, cashed in on some frequent flyer miles and within 2 days I was on a plane to parpadise! I got to read 2 books-The Poisonwood Bible which I loved and 1000 Splendid Suns which is such a powerful story. We had a regimented schedule of lay by the pool, read, get a massage, exercise and eat...oh and do a little shopping for souvenirs. It was rough.
Does it get any better than that? Seriously.

Thanks, Jane, for letting me crash your birthday trip! Oh, and yes, that brunette is me. Ever since I pierced my ears last year I've gone WILD!

Daph,

I love and am jealous that you got this great vacation. The reason that I am commenting is that you read two of my favorite books. I love both of those. I just finished another book by Babara Kingsolvor, Prodical Summer. It isn't as good as the Poisonwood Bible, but it is still really great.

I am really wanting you and Troy to come up for dinner. I actually just need to have a party. Have everyone up for a party. Troy, Terri, Jessica, Andrew the whole clan. I am going to plan it soon, I promise.

Oh, so very very fun! I LOVE it that you both got to go and have this relaxing time together!

And WOW! You HAVE gone wild! Daph with hair color and pierced ears, not to mention designer jeans? I never thought I'd live to see the day! What IS the world coming to? :)

Okay, so now you've really rubbed it in! Sooo jealous!! How do you talk a husband into letting you leave for a whole week? You look fabulous, by the way! Love the hair!

If it doesn't stop snowing soon, and the spring bulbs don't come up, I say we go AGAIN! SOON!
