G.O.T.W. 2010

What is G.O.T.W., you ask? Well...it is Girls Only Tiki Weekend, of course! :) Tiki, is a little island right before you enter into Galveston. Allison, invited a group of us girls down to her Tiki house for the whole weekend. There were 11 friends...no kids (there are 28 between all of us!)...for 3 days!!! It was the best weekend and a much needed break for all of us. The weekend consisted of laughing, talking until 4 in the morning, crying, playing games, going to the beach, pedicures, Bingo, going out to eat, and so many more memories. Even though I have known all of these girls for many, many years and we have literally done so much of our day to day life together, this weekend brought all of us to a whole new level of friendship! I loved every minute of it and I feel so blessed to have each of you in my life.

Thank you, Allison, for opening up your beautiful home and hosting this amazing time for us! You truly out did yourself!!! Can't wait until G.O.T.W. 2011!!!
