Girl's Night Out

I got to go to another spa party! Wendy and her sisters came to town for a spa party on Saturday and invited me to go too.
Megan (Wendy's niece... Julie's daughter) was also there with her friend Heather. Megan was celebrating her 23rd birthday . We used to babysit for her when she was only a few months old. Boy, do I feel old. Now she is a beautiful grown up girl.

We had a great time at the spa then we checked into Brett's hotel and had the hotel van take us to the Southside for dinner and a fun girl's night out.
We had a wonderful dinner at Fatheads (they have the best Turkey Reuben's EVER!)
Then we went to a few fun bars and tried to find people there that were older than us. We didn't have too much luck.

The van picked us "old" ladies UP and took us back to the hotel around midnight.
Just when it was starting to get busy. How do people stay up so late??
The young girls stayed out MUCH later and had a fun night.
Oh to be 23 again... NO WAY!!!

It was a fun night and I can't wait to do it again next year, but I think next time we are taking the guys with us. We missed them.

It was a great night, and so nice to be with friends that I have known for almost 30 years!

I posted another picute of Wendy and myself.
Wonder how many pictures of us I have ???

Hallowboo at Idlewild

We had a great time at Hallowboo at Idlewild on Sunday. Maxwell was so excited that he got to go with a bunch of his friends.

We went with the Valentinos and our neighbors, the Franzens. The 6 boys had a blast going trick or treating in Story Book Forest, riding rides and running at lightning speeds through hay bale maze.

Maxwell wore his pirate costume that he wore last year. This year I had to let dow the hem in the pants that I had taped up last year.

The weather was beautiful. A little too hot for me, as I was hoping for a cool, crisp, fall day. Maxwell was so tired he fell asleep on the way home and slept until the next morning.

We felt so lucky that he had such a good day and that he was able to spend it with his friends having such a good time.

I hope he will remember all of these wonderful moments when he is older.

Not much to blog about...

I have not posted an entry for a while. I don't even have any new pictures to post!Things have been pretty uneventful at the Lawrence house. We are all happy and Healthy!

Maxwell continues to love Kindergarten. He had his first tests last week and did very well on all of them. He loves to do his school work. He started taking a drawing class and he loves it. I will try to scan and post some of the pictures he draws at his class.

We spent last weekend with Wendy and Alyssa. Maxwell was in heaven spending two days with his best friend. I still have high hopes they will get married some day so Wendy and I will actually be related... not that it matters, as she is as close to a sister as I am ever going to have anyway.

I started walking in the morning with my neighbor. We walk at 6:15 AM. Yes, I know you can't believe that "me," that hates exercise, is getting up at 6:15 to walk. But, so far,so good. It makes it easier when I know someone is waiting for me to go.
I am not losing any weight though, especially now that pumpkin spice "Frapps" are back at Starbucks (I do order the "light' version though.)

I went to the doctor on Monday to finally try to figure out why I keep getting my severe migraine headaches. I go on Monday for a MRI, but the doctor thinks the main problem is my over use of Excedrin to treat my headaches. He has put me on a daily medication to prevent the migraines. I hope it helps. I can not take not take medication if I do get a migraine for 2 months, so it had BETTER help! I will keep you updated.

We continue to get ready for the big Halloween party.

We hope to see you all there.
