Sometimes you just gotta.....

........Gotta put down the to-do list
.....gotta close the laptop
......gotta screw the laundry, dusting and vacuuming

and spend some time with your girls

I did just that this weekend

I crept away for a night with 5 of my girlfriends

for an unexplainably amazing time

at the lake

We sunbathed

We grilled out

then called in reinforcements to make sure it was done

had a family dinner (with creepy stranger photographs in the background)
love these muffins!!

and stayed up talking, laughing, and playing catchphrases which is possibly the best game EVER.

then fell asleep under creepy Angel Baby Artwork
while dog-size chipmunks played chase on the roof above me and Whit's room.

oh Two Trout Cabin....you were a blast!!
I love that Whitney posed immediately for this pic.....girl after my own heart! 

What do you need a break from today?! 
Take some time for YOU!

XO, A

SOOOOO - I changed my domain to www.sittinginatree-blog.com. If I'm not showing up in your feed, can you fix it? You aren't a mommy and you post on my blog. Do you know how awesome that is?

It's like if Ryan Reynolds decided to eat dinner with me instead of with the cast of the Rockettes.

So yeah, VISIT ME.
