Full disclosure

Okay, if I’m completely honest, I have to tell you that my weekend away with the girls completely wore me out.

I had more amazing conversations at lunch than I can count (I’ll be back later this week to tell you all about them!).

Cheryl kept me up all Saturday night talking. It was as though we were sixteen again, giggling and plotting world domination until nearly two in the morning.

Lori made me laugh so hard the next morning that I almost peed my pants (you know what I’m talking about Lori–your story of new, unlikely, and ridiculous career paths.)

But, I’m not 25 anymore (sigh), so I’m beyond exhausted.

Instead of continuing on (ad nauseum) about just how tired I am, I’m going to point you toward some words that I wrote when I did have some energy, words that I shared with my lovely friend Allison, who was there for me when I needed a hand to hold. She has visited me here, with a Small Moments Mondays post entitled Pushing and Pulling, and today I’m repaying the favor.

I would be thrilled if it you visited me over there and left me some sugar (0kay, I must be tired, I just asked for some sugar!).

Here’s my post: A Simple Thing.

Thank you for letting me catch my breath.

I’ll be back to my regular programming on Wednesday!

Much love…

    Heading over there right now. Glad you had a lovely weekend, and didn't let the anxiety of separating from your darling ones do you in. Much love to you.

  2. Tracie fromtracie.com

    Heading that way right now.

    Get some rest! It is great that you had such a wonderful weekend.

    Still jealous…blogging is like re-living high school. With wine.

  4. Getting old blows doesn't it ;)

  5. Klz

    It's takes me three days to recover just from staying up late…wine not included

  6. Cheryl @ Mommypants mommypants.com

    Um, I kept YOU up all night?


    Still recovering…

  7. You two giggle WAY too much.


    Not me. I'm deathly serious.

    Ok, off to read now!

    Off to read, and I love how you're meeting your invisible friends. Me, over here in WI, no one believes my friends are real yet…yet….xo

    I'm with Alexandra…my IRL friends things I talk to the voices in my computer…sigh…

    and somehow? it's not a stretch for me to believe that you and Cheryl are gigglers. not a stretch at all.

  10. I've been catching some of your conversations on Twitter. A fly on the wall would've had a great time with you guys!

  11. You are always a breath of fresh air. So take all of them you need.
    Glad you had a great time. And 25 is over-rated.
    Where you are is just wonderful…

    You're funny! I'm glad you had fun, I SO wish I could have been there too.

    We just can't party (AKA stay up past 10:00) like we used to.

    Rest up, mama. xo

  13. How lame is that that we can't hang out with friends like we used to?! It takes me days to recover if I deviate from my routine…or God forbid…stay up late (gasp!).

    heading over to your post :)

    What is wrong with you people?

    No one listens to me . . . grumble, grumble, grumble.

    Off to read the guest post.

  15. Still so sad I missed you ladies! You KNOW I couldn't zero you out on my Google Reader!! xoxo

    ok, now you have me scouring the interwebs looking for pictures of my beloved Lori and her hat tassels. WHERE ARE THEY?

    Also, I just can't let loose and make a fool of myself on your blog, Nichole. It's just too pretty and beautiful and full of big, glorious words full of meaning for me to come and ruin it all with one roundhouse kick to the breasticle. I CAN do it over at Lori's though, so….
