Several months ago I was reading this blog and decided I wanted to take an idea from her and implement it in my life. So, Creative Thursday was born. Every Thursday my wonderful friend Emily and I get together and scrapbook (or make cards, or organize pictures, craft rooms, etc). I think we have only missed one week since we started because Emily was sick. We trade off hosting each week and usually the host provides lunch and snacks. Sometimes its quesadillas, last week Emily just wanted a PBJ (because her kids don't like them! What?) and today it was fantastic Cafe Rio! (thanks Adam!) Oh, and the snacks...I think we are getting a little out of hand with the snacks! I took a picture of them with my new camera phone but I can't figure out how to use the micro SD card! But, take my word, we had quite the spread of treats!!! Anyway, we both look forward to these Thursdays because they have proven to be a stress release as well as a creative outlet. We hardly stop talking from the second we get together and it's like pulling teeth to get us to end! This week the kids get out early on Thursday so we decided we needed to change the day to Tuesday so we didn't have the older kids for the whole afternoon.
We had Liv take a picture of us but neither of us were happy with it but I'm going to post it anyway for the sake of documentation. Next week we might put on a little gloss for a cuter photo.
I'm so glad I have had Emily live around the block from me for the last 5 years and I'm not sure what I'll do when she moves in 2 weeks! She is an amazing friend and has made my kids and I feel like her home is an extension of our own. I feel so blessed to have you as my friend, Em! Love you!
