Friday night Jordan and I hit up our favorite 'lil sushi joint in Southlake, Sushi Sam. It was deelish, as always. We realized on Friday that we have been eating at Sushi Sam for nearly 7 years now. My, oh my, how I wish I could have had a tape recorder from the start, so
And now, onto the Babies and Besties portion of my weekend :)
Saturday morning Leigh, Caroline, Alaina and Mason packed it up (without a single inch to spare) and headed out West to get me, and then, we were off, to the great state of Oklahoma! Feel free to join in singing....O!K!L!A!H!.......alright, alright, you get the picture.
Leigh was sandwiched, literally, between Mason and Caro in the back, taking on the tasks of bottles, baby food, paci's, etc.... I manned the wheel, and Alaina was a flawless assistant.
We arrived in OKC to our dear friends Jenna, Sarah, Ashleigh and baby Gage waiting in the yard with open arms. It was the first time to see Ash's gorgeous home and meet precious, tiny Gage. Shout out to Jenna for flying all the way in from Cali...you are such a sweetie, and to Sarah, too, for making the flight from Houston, and cutting out of school with your kindies.
An afternoon of baby lovin' and catching up with my gal pals....awe, it was sheer bliss! That night Jenna whipped up her famous Chicken Chalupa and homemade salsa, accompanied by Sarah's new and highly addictive Cream Cheese Queso, topped off with Patty's magic dessert bars. I think it's fair to assume no one went to bed hungry that night. It was scrumptious:).
Okay, I will quit rambling and simply post pics from our fantabulous time together.
Mr. Mason after his bath. Those dreamy blue eyes are going to break many hearts one day ;)
Jenna and sweet, handsome Gage. Quite possibly the chillest 6 week old baby on the block!
Sarah and Caro, who's looking pretty in pink. This little lady is a giggle box deluxe! Too cute!
Couch time with some cuties
Mason's looking to take a ride and Jenna is ready to go!
Alaina, Kimberly, Mason, Leigh, Caroline, Sarah, Jenna, Gage and Ashleigh
Here's to a wonderful weekend with those I hold so, so dear to my heart...my husband, my college besties, and now, their little lovies, too!
And yes folks, THAT'S AMORE!!!!

One of the tables set for dinner
Sweet card from the arrangement my family sent for the event
Jordan is Bob Villa and Martha Stewart!
Kami's so crafty!
This is a close up of the cute Texas Hold'em Party favors and rhyme she wrote.
Jordan and Darin - Casino Dealers Deluxe!!!
With 22 people, we only had one red wine spill, and even then, have no fear, my ShamWow came to the rescue, leaving the carpet looking as good as
new Sophie had left it (ahh, the memory of potty training a small dog.) Sorry, random tangent.
The parting shot - Jordan comforting Sophie, as she was simply exhausted as she tried to maneuver her way through 40+ extra feet on her turf.
All in all, the evening was such a fun time with wonderful friends. Can't wait for the next one!!!
