sittin’ on the dock of the lake


i went with my girlfriends this weekend to nearby cedar creek lake for an overnight getaway to celebrate #friendsgiving. with it only being an hour away, we caravaned it down saturday morning-ish, stopping at cedar creek brewery on the way for a beer and lunch and then on to chels’ lakehouse….where we get together to take our makeup bras off, snack all night and make memories & inside jokes that we will bring up for years to come. we called this trip #GirlsTripPlusTy because some of my friends have kiddos and we were allll girls, plus tyler 🙂  we each brought a dish for a homemade meal and the icing on the cake was literally the best cake i’ve ever had – it’s called yum yum cake and if you like pecans you would die! here is a similar recipe & there is a photo below, get ready to drool.

it was so much fun getting to bond with my best friend’s kids. getting on their level, running around outside, swinging, sitting on the floor and coloring, getting hugs in (when the kiddos would give them out!), catching up with my girls and belly laughing until it hurts. last december was the last time we were all there & i hope less time goes by before we go back…

    Missed the four thoughts memo…here goes:

    I am beyond blessed to have all of you in my life.

    Those babies are beautiful.

    The lake is good for the soul.

    You are going to be a wonderful mama some day.
