Hello, hello, hello!!
I'm completely, utterly happy.
Why all this excessive glee??

Kellie is home!!!!

To celebrate her homecoming (and as a sort of belated b-day celebration for me), we had a wall tent sleepover the other night with all the trimmings.
It was so good to see my dear friend - we hadn't seen each other for almost 2 months!

First on our list was a game of badminton, Idaho hick style.  It involved much talk and laughter...and possibly some near-hysterical giggles as it got towards dark;)  I discovered some muscles in my right arm that hadn't been used in quite a while and they are protesting their use vehemently today.  But it was worth it;)

Then all of the girls (Mrs. Falconer, too:) snuggled up in Kellie's wall tent to eat indecent amounts of Jelly Bellies while watching Fred and Ginger being absolutely adorable in Carefree.  Love that movie!

We slept in till about 9 the next morning and then sat around on the bed and talked until 10, at which point we decided to stop being lazy and enjoy the beautiful day.
After a delicious duck egg omelet (with onions and mushrooms!), we decided to go for a bike ride and get some pictures.

Welll...when I say some I mean quite a few.
Wellll...when I say quite a few, I mean a lot.
Wellll...judge for yourself...

Clara, me, Kellie, Tilda, Rosie (the dog) and Lilly

Kellie cleverly edited the street sign to read Laughter Ln.
It was definitely that!

Rosie trying out my sunglasses:)

Kellie says I look adorable in the above picture...that wasn't the word I was thinking of, but I'll take her word for it;)

Now this, is adorable...

j u m p !

I love this picture:)

We unanimously decided that Rosie looks like a fluffy panda in the above picture;)

Lilly and me

After biking, we followed one of the creeks up to the pond...

Kellie and I were brave and went wading.
One word...cold!  Make that icy cold.

Thank you for being our photographer, Ellen! =)

Happy Trails, y'all!

  4. A wonderful photo journey of the Wall Tent BFFR(Best Friends Forever Reuion)!!Such happiness and smiles all around(including Miss Rosie with all glamped up in your purple sunglasses!!)My fav pic is the one of you looking over your shoulder with such a sweet smile. Happiness becomes you well!! Tell Ellen she did a fabulous job of capturing some of the highlights on the bike trip too. Tasha, I am so happy for you as I know you were missing your friend and there is nothing like a Wall Tent Sleepover to catch up on all of the "necessary girl talk"!

    Hmmm, I did not know there WAS such a thing as an indecent amount of Jelly Belly consumption! Ha! Ha!

    Thanks for sharing this virtual tour of the best time in 2 months reuninon! Yay for BFFs(Best Friend Forever)!!!

  5. Just one simple word: love.

    I love your excellent post, I love these pictures, I loved our wonderful time together. I loved it when *somebody* put on Lilly's glasses and gave me the belly laugh of the year.

    And I love you.

  6. It looks and sounds like you had fun!
    Have a great week~

  7. Yes, I think we sometimes do have too much fun...almost;)

    Thanks for the great comments, y'all - they made me smile:)

    Kellie - Hahaha! I still crack up every time I think about *somebody* wearing Lilly's glasses=D I think we both needed that belly laugh desperately. I love you, too, dear:)


Comments are my one weakness - thanks for taking the time to say hello!
