F. to the R. to the I. E.N.D.S

This weekends theme: Friends.

We were sans children for an entire 48 hour period, and when the mice are away… well, you know.

Friday night we got together with our friends Ryan & Jamie. Jamie and I met about 5 years ago playing on a co-ed softball team. While we haven’t played s.b. in almost 3 years, our friendship survived the sport :). Ryan & Jamie married about a year ago, and because he’s a great guy, we welcomed him into the “fold” with open arms. Both Jamie & Ryan are huge sports fans, so we began the night at a local sports bar, and then headed to our house to watch the Jazz game. Even though the Jazz choked, it was still a great night and wonderful getting to spend some time with friends we don’t see as often as we’d like.

Saturday night we had our lovely and delightful friends, Sarah & Dave, over for dinner and to play our new favorite card game. Not only do we love D&S, but it’s always fun getting our dogs (Jake & Maggie) together for some canine frolicking. It doesn’t matter what we do, we always have a lot of fun together. We’ve had multiple little weekend trips, just us and the dogs, as well as numerous weekends spent at one or the others house. But things will change shortly… Sarah & Dave are expecting! I’m so excited for them and can’t wait to hold and play with a baby (all while having the ability to hand it over at the end of the night 😉 ). I know that this wonderful addition to their family will bring many changes, but all good ones! Congrats to you both!

Speaking of friends, last Monday I got the opportunity to take my amazing friend Carla (who I’ve spoken about before) to the hospital for some lab work (in case you missed that post, Carla has AML, a form of leukemia). Carla, Jeff, and their girls are in my thoughts and prayers daily, and while I worry about them, I am also blown away by their strength. Jeff is such an amazing example to me of unconditional love and support. I’m not a terribly sappy person, but watching their relationship and love for each other through all of this… seriously inspirational. Carla looked absolutely beautiful, and we joked around and laughed like we always do. She is truly an amazing person, and I feel so lucky to have her and her family as friends. Love you! Here’s your reminder to donate blood, or blood products (such as platelets or plasma), and if you can, become a bone marrow donor.

Here’s to friends!
