This past weekend was amazing - 3 of my best friends from Florida came to visit us in Birmingham. Jackie, Paula and Liz stayed with us for 4 days and we showed them all around the Ham! They arrived on Friday morning and Josh picked them up from the airport while I worked a half-day. We met up for lunch and went to the delicious Saw's BBQ in Homewood. Afterwards we did lots of shopping and stopped by to say "Hello" to Mr. Vulcan.

On Saturday we slept in, chatted up during breakfast and then made the trek out to Oak Mountain. (The pic you see below was very graciously taken by our chauffeur and my husband - Josh.) We decided to climb down to the waterfall that we love and it was quite a climb since everything was still very slippery. We all managed to climb down and then back out of the valley in one piece - however, let's just say that some of us struggled more than others...

Josh: "Jackie, just move your foot to that spot right there..."
Jackie: "Don't you see that is impossible as I am already doing the SPLITS?!?!"
Becca: To Jackie - "They all have longer legs than us - NOT FAIR."

Becca: (Grunting in frustration and fear.)
Paula: "Becca, haven't you done this before?!?"
Josh: "Yes, she has..."

Sunday was Paula's birthday and so we ordered her favorite cake Edgar's Bakery and we sang to her on Saturday night after Josh and I made dinner.

On Sunday we went to church in the morning, Baha Burger for lunch, outlet shopping in the afternoon and then dinner at Jackson's for Paula's birthday - busy but very fun day!!

I am so thankful for such a fun and relaxing weekend with friends. Lots of girl time :). Poor Josh was a little overloaded with Estrogen, but he was amazing as he baked cookies, cooked dinner from a Pioneer Woman recipe (haha), drove us everywhere and just plain put up with us. Love you, Babe.

This 4-day weekend was a much needed break before my upcoming work travel schedule:
Next week - Pennsylvania for a new project for Lock Haven University
Week After - Gainesville for progress visit and UF housing Reception onsite (Hopefully I can update!!)
Following week - Possibly to OHIO?!? (Don't think I've been there before...)
