A couple weeks ago I wrote an article about my 10 minutes of model â€œfameâ€.Â Well those 10 minutes, and a new friend, Leigh Macdonald, of Nice Shoes, No Drama, led to another 10 (more like 30) minutes last night.Â Deena and I and my two other friends, Sarah and Kate, modeled clothes for a Girl Night Out event.Â The event was held at a local boutique gift store, The Dandelion Patch, and featured clothes from a nearby clothing store, Rich Hippie.Â I would never use either of those words, rich or hippie, to describe myself, but the clothes were fabulous and we had so much fun!Â I will definitely be going back to BOTH stores in the very near future.Â And the Dandelion Patch donated a percentage of salesÂ for the night to the Avon Walk team I am on, The Step Sisters.Â How awesome is she for doing that?
When I look at this picture, I realize just how blessed I am to have such amazing friends in my life.Â That was actually the best part of the evening for meâ€¦spending it with 3 friends from 3 different walks of my life.Â I didnâ€™t think about this until I sat down to write this recap, but now that I look at this picture, it just makes me feel all warm inside (yes, Iâ€™m getting a little sappy here).Â Now I will digress from the evening festivities and talk about these amazing women.
From left to right, after me:
Kate is my newest friend of the 3.Â We met out and about in the neighborhood, at school functions and Pampered Chef parties and have known each other for a few years.Â Our 4 year olds are BFFs, and our hubbies (the other kids in our lives) have taken a strong liking to each other.Â :-)Â Weâ€™ve agreed that our husbands were built from the same moldâ€¦itâ€™s kind of creepy.Â And do not attempt to adjust your screen, she really is model-material tall and beautiful.
Sarah is my oldest friend from childhood.Â We think we met in 4th grade.Â :-)Â I meet her weekly for coffee with another childhood friend and we have started an annual girlsâ€™ weekend tradition.Â Sarah and I have been in and out of each otherâ€™s lives for almost 30 years (OMG I just totally dated myself!) and I think now weâ€™re in it for good, which I love!Â I live for our weekly coffeesâ€¦.her friendship makes me happy.
And most of you know beautiful Deena.Â Deena and I met in high school.Â Just like Sarah, our life paths have crossed in and out since high school, but we always find our way back to each other.Â :-)Â I was so glad she was able to share this event with me.Â We donâ€™t live super close to each other, so I cherish the times we are actually both at the same place at the same time.
So when I look at this picture, it makes me think of my life journey.Â So many memories formed with these ladies and I hope to create many more.Â Thank you all for a wonderful night.Â MWAH!Â 😉
