A great day for Obama, and for me too!

Tuesday might have been all about our new president, but I also felt kind of special on that day too.

My morning started off with Kara. Yay, I was feeling kind of lazy after not getting up any sense of early on Monday (well, it was a holiday), and so I was thrilled that Kara and I had the same brilliant idea to meet for breakfast. She came over after dropping the kiddos off, and we dined at The Original Pancake House. We had to have pancakes.....and both chose the Two by Four. Yum.

After stuffing ourselves, we hung out with Molly and watched the President Inauguration. I am really not so eloquent with words, especially when it comes to politics, but I'm excited about what our country's new leader, and what the change will bring. Regardless of your political opinions, it's nice to see that so many people are taking an interest in our country, and rallying together to stand for something. We can only wait to see what Obama will do for us, and pray that he is granted the wisdom to make choices that are good for all Americans.

Ok, enough of that. Phew....that kind of hurt my brain a little.

On Tuesday night, the fun continued. It'd been a while since we'd had a girl's night in, and I was really looking forward to this one. With me not knowing when I'll really be leaving, I wanted to make sure to see my girls before I move. I don't like to use the term "going away", because this won't be the last time that I'll see them (it'd better not be anyways), but if for nothing else, it was a great reason for a girl's night.

Renae made us some wonderful chili, we had a little run in with the gas company (Long story short: a few of us thought we smelled gas. Better to be safe than sorry, so we called the gas company, and they sent someone out to check it out. He didn't find anything out of the ordinary....and at the end of the night, some of the girls are convinced that what we smelled had to be the onions. Ooops.), watched some horrid TV (seriously....who ARE the real housewives of the OC......they are NUTS....that's what they are!?!?), and had a great time, as usual, spending time with each other.

I'm going to miss my girlfriends in Austin SO much, and can only hope that I have the same types of friendships in CA. I've been so blessed to have them all as part of my lives over the last 10 years. I'm going to be sure that they all download Skype, and book their tickets to come visit me as often as possible!!! :)
