Two of my college friends have been in Colorado Springs lately. I've found that sooner or later most everyone visits Colorado and when they do, we'll get a chance to connect!
A couple of weeks ago I got to have dinner with Susan aka Carpool Queen and her boys. I didn't get a pic of the boys, but here's a pic of me with Sus. Our time was short, but very sweet. I loved it, Sus! Thanks for making it happen.
blog, then you are missing out on some funny stuff. Seriously, I can't read her blog while drinking anything. She's that funny. But she's also deep and serious and I wish to goodness I'd known her better back in our OBU days.
I suggested to Susan that she should change her name to CarTripQueen. She made a 5000 mile journey across the good ole US of A with her guys last month. Brave, brave girl.
While Sus was trekking across the country, she stopped to see Deena, another friend from OBU. Deena happened to be Sus' little sister from their "social club" days. [Note: Ouachita didn't have sororities or fraternities but instead had social clubs.]
So guess who also visited Colorado Springs recently?
Yep. Deena. (She doesn't blog but she really needs to!!!!!!!)
Deena and her family spent the 4th of July weekend at the very swanky Broadmoor and I got to have dinner with her one evening.
As soon as she emailed me this pic, I titled it: Snow White and the DWARF. Good grief I am short!
Deena is another friend I wish I'd known better back in college. She was a year behind me so we were really only at OBU together for a year before John and I married and moved to Dallas/Fort Worth. I like to think we made up for a lot of lost time when she was here! Thanks, Deena, for making time for me in the midst of your fun getaway. And thanks for listening to me talk and talk and talk! I loved seeing you and meeting your beautiful family!
I really dislike these two pictures of myself because I think I look so, um, shall we say LARGE in them? Ugh. That's what 12 weeks of no cardio will do to a girl. Ugh.
I'll be back tomorrow with details of Sarah's 12th Birthday! We've got a super fun day planned for her!
