Feeling Refreshed!

About a year and a half ago one of my good friends moved to Texas.  We worked together for two years and became great friends.  Even though she is a few hundred miles away, she always comes back to Colorado for Thanksgiving and Christmas to see her family and friends.  She called me yesterday and we made plans for today since she would only be in town for a few days.   The first thing I said to her was something like, "I NEED MARGARITAS." LOL  It seems like we are always finding some shenanigans to get ourselves into and today was no different. 

She came to the house first and checked out the babies.  After hanging out for a bit, we went out for some Mexican food and boy was it yummy!  I ordered the "Cadillac" Margarita and she got a blended raspberry one.  It was seriously the best tasting margarita I think I've ever had!  I also had some super yummy fajitas with guac and sour cream.  Yummmmm.  We left the restaurant and went to the mall for a bit.

The first store we went into was The Gap.  I was trying on some pants when Eleanor found some very furry looking accessories and just had to try them on. 

Now those are some "boots with the fur" LOL

After we went to The Gap, we went to American Eagle.  We made a few jokes about how we were old enough to be the kids that were shopping at the stores teachers.  We are almost 30 and still shop there, but that's okay, right?  Once again they had some amazingly tacky furry accessories and we couldn't help but to try them on and giggle like teenagers.

This is how people from Texas dress when its "freezing" at 60 degrees in Colorado haha

After making complete fools of ourselves, we went to Payless and bought some flip flops so that we could go get pedicures and not have to put our boots back on and get the polish all messed up.  I got a sparkly pink color with a pretty flower!

Pretty Toes!

It was so great to get out of the house for a couple hours and goof around at the mall.  There has to be a balance in life and I balance staying at home with going to the mall and acting silly with friends!  When I got home the girls were starting to wake up so I fed them and let daddy go lay down and relax for a bit.  I actually feel more rested than I have in days and I really didn't sleep any more than usual.  I guess it was just really nice to see a friend and have some good 'ol girl time.
