My Peep was HOME

This past weekend, my peep Jana (that would be BFF) came HOME from Utah for a few days. Her grandfather unexpectedly passed away earlier in the week and she was home for his funeral. I was SO Excited to see her! It had been YEARS since I had seen her and even though we talk almost every day by email or Facebook, there's just something about seeing each other in person that is special!
We were able to get together on Friday night for some GIRL TIME! I took her to one of my favorite little spots, Carmella's, for some authentic Italian food. It is THE BEST! I do believe I have her hooked on this food!
Do ignore the half-eaten bowl of mariana sauce in this photo and look at that glorious, golden bread! YUM!
I ordered the Baked Ziti, which I always order, and it did not disappoint!

Jana ordered Steak something or other...I can't remember, but she said it was glorious! Look at all that sauce! How could it not be?

Because we're wild party girls, ha! And because we were without our husbands AND our kids, we hit the town at the local Wal-Mart for some early Christmas shopping in the clearance section. In our defense, we live in the middle of nowhere and there's nothing else to do. We were able to have just as much fun perusing the aisles of the local WallyWorld as we would have somewhere else! For us, it was about reconnecting and laughing!

I don't have a picture of our shopping cart from WallyWorld, but rest assured, it was full. If you want to see the picture, you can head to Jana's blog to see it!

We had a great time catching up and I'm so glad she came HOME for a few days!



  1. That's great you had a chance to visit in person again!!! How fun.....

  2. I had so much FUN with you!!!! And I still say my shirt was FABULOUS even though that cashier thought yours was cuter HAHAHA I miss you! We CANNOT go that long without seeing each other again!!!!

  3. Nothing like reconnecting in person. I have a PEEP that I only see every few years - but we pick up like no time has passed at all. Glad you had such a great time. PS - can you send me Donna's email address? Mine is

  4. Awwww. I'm so glad y'all got to see each other and visit for a little while :) Was that mozzerella sticks I saw? YUM! (my fave). That food looks delish. I love how y'all had a big night on the town (at the Walmart).

  5. Where is this Carmella's? The food looks yummy! Glad you had the opportunity to catch up with an old friend.

  6. Looks like fun! Nothing like catching up with a girlfriend!!


  7. There is NOTHING like reconnecting with good girlfriends. And that food looked amazing!! Such a fun time for you.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one and treasure every word!
