My weekend in bullet points:
  • Friday, went to friend's daughters musical.  I laughed so much fun. It was awesome.  These kids were talented!
  • Saturday morning, I found out my best friend's dad passed away. It was a long battle but that man held on stronger than ever.  God bless him!
  • Spent time with my best friend.  Our other close friends came by and we all were together for majority of the day.
  • In the middle, we went to my other best friend's gender reveal party... and found out that this third baby will be a GIRL!  He already has two other girls.  Let's just say he better buy some stock in Tampax.
  • Came home, and spent some more time with my best friend while he shared some great memories of his dad with us. I felt so blessed to be there in that moment with him.  We all were amazed at the life his dad lived.  And the pictures from his dad were amazing!
  • Sunday, again, all of the close friends gathered together and spent the day with our friend while he took care of arrangements.  We also met up with his brother too and got to hear some more stories about their dad. 
  • After a day full of memories and planning, we decided to come back to Jersey to grab some food. We get to Outback Steakhouse and wait for about an hour.  Within the hour, a bad storm rolls in.  All of sudden the power goes out in the restaurant.  The manager tells us the restaurant is working at 50% power and to remain calm. Two minutes later, they get news that a car hit a pole and transformer blew and was on fire. They shut down the restaurant. We were next to be seated!  We were so famished.  But in the end, after all of our adventures, we were all together eating dinner and just being awesome.
  • Today, I am exhausted. But it is what it is.
  • I am so grateful to have such an amazing group of friends.  We are pretty awesome as being great supportive friends in time of need.  We were all communicating with each other and made sure our friend knew we weren't just friends, but family. 
  • God is good.  We may not understand why some of the things happen, but in the end, we just have to remember that we will be okay. 
  • Be grateful for your life today.
  • Smile
  • Love

I'm so sorry for your friend's loss. He is very blessed to have you and your other friends support him and being there for him... as family, it really does make a difference.
Hope this upcoming week/weekend is a little uneventful for you.

Also, congrats to your other friend and his third little girl. Now, I'm personally running over to check out the stock in tampax lol
