This is why God blesses us with sisters and/or girlfriends. Who understands a woman better than another woman? There are plenty of things about us girls that men just don't get. And so, over the years, I have developed plenty of friendships with other women - my two sisters, ladies from church, neighbors, the gals in Book Club, my mom, a sister in Christ whom I have never met in person (we are email besties!), my dear Bestie Rox, and so many others! I think my relationship with my husband is much better off when I've had time with my "sisterchicks". (In case you don't know what a Sisterchick is, find out more here.) This past Monday was a Sisterchick Day for me and my Bestie, Rox.
First, we had breakfast and lots of conversation at Early Edition:
Then we went next door to the newly opened Goodwill store. I wish I'd taken a picture of us there, but I didn't think of it til later. We were there for a couple of hours! It's a really nice, clean, neat store and we loaded up a cart full of awesome stuff. I am so thrilled that now I can find fun Goodwill bargains just like my blogger friend Grammy Goodwill! One of my favorite finds from Monday's haul is a little black dress, new with tags - original price was $112, but I paid a mere $5.49!
All that bargain hunting made us hungry, so we tootled over to our favorite coffee spot, Radina's, where we shared a sandwich & salad and a big slice of Chocolate Turtle Cake - and coffee, of course. Mmm...good! Radina's is "our place" and I just can't go there without my Bestie - which is probably a good thing for the sake of my waistline!
Oh, how much I cherish the time spent with my Bestie! We laugh, hug, tease, eat, talk, goof around, shop, and sometimes we just sit quietly together. Just what we both needed, to refuel our "love pitchers" for our husbands and kids and everyone else that we care about.
Here's to you, Rox!
