Girlfriends

<----- See that? That's my wedding day. I mean obviously it's my wedding day, because me and my girlfriends don't usually just get dressed up in white dresses and carry flowers around the house, pausing for obviously posed photos. We need at least three margaritas on a boring Tuesday night before we get that crazy. Anyway, that chick on the right is my bestest girlfriend in the world.

Tomorrow the wonderful, sweet, generous, and fabulous "Aunt Jax" is coming to visit.

Jacquie and I have been best friends for ten years now. Damn, we're old. We were RAs together. She was my Maid of Honor with her badass Little Bo Peep hairdo. She was in the delivery room when Banana was born - she VIDEOTAPED! - And she STILL loves me!

Unfortunately airfare dictates that our visit is a short one, but we're going to make the most of it. The last time she came to see me, I had a new baby and I wasn't too sure about Oregon yet. But now....now I think she'll be able to see how happy this place makes me. Hopefully we'll have time to see some friends but mostly we're just going to catch up and hang out.

Her plane gets in at 7:15 tomorrow night and the purple minivan will be there waiting! From there we're going to overnight in Portland and then head to the coast on Saturday morning. The weather isn't supposed to be great, but that's the coast in the spring in Oregon. At least we'll be able to say that we went and got our feet wet. And we'll go to Mo's. Because you have to go to Mo's when you go to the coast, even if you don't like clam chowder.

We'll probably come home on Sunday and then it will be back to the grind - school for the girls, and bumming around town for Miss Jax and myself. Maybe we'll go get hippie pizza. Or get our toenails done. Or go thrift store shopping. Or make some fruity girlie drinks.

Or just enjoy being together. Love you girl! Travel safe!

I feel so honored to have my very own blog dedicated to me. I can't wait to get there tomorrow. Too bad I have to give a few tests to my wonderful 2nd-3rd and 4th graders before I can take a half day to catch my plane. Love you to pieces and can't wait to see ya and the cool ass minivan. :)
