Naps, NOLA, Beach, Birthdays and Girlfriends

 I'm going to try and catch you up on what's been happening around here.

Some of us have been busy, busy.......some of us still nap.

Hubby and I made a quick trip to NOLA to see some friends of ours.

This was the pic I sent to her to prove we were on our way.

Eek!!  I probably scared her to death!

And when I say a quick trip.....we left on Tuesday around lunch and got up Wednesday

morning at 5:30 to head back home.

Sunrise over New Orleans....

The Super Dome

Lake Pontchartrain

Then on the weekend we went to the beach where my brother lives

and had an early birthday celebration for my mom.

There are several different routes to take to the beach and I took the tunnel route.

Big mistake.....

Saw this sign while out shopping.....

So true...

Then on Monday I was to go out with my girl friends!

Since my mirror in my bathroom tells me lies...

"Oh you look great Lisa"

"you don't look fat at all Lisa"

"have you lost weight Lisa?"

I have to take a photo of myself with my camera and then look at myself

to make the best decision on what to wear.

Really just to pick out the least horrible outfit....uggg

Because I am stupid enough to have chosen these beautiful girls as my friends!

What was I thinking?!!!!!

And there were three others just that gorgeous that I didn't have a photo of.

I would dump them all if I didn't love them so...

I then get depressed and the next morning eat Little Debbie cakes with my coffee.

It's a vicious cycle....

Well I think I caught you up on my shenanigans....

No wait....

Last night hubby and I were on the couch and I said to him...

"I told my friends you were going to get me a henway for my birthday."

He said..."huh?"

I said "you know a are going to get me one for my birthday."

He said.."what the heck's a henway?"

I said  "about 2 pounds!!"



I hope you, my fabulous blog girlfriends, have a wonderful week!!!!

I like to think that those gorgeous women don't have half the charm and personality as you . . . so that makes you the most beautiful of all!!!

And I hate that tunnel with a passion!

My goodness,
you have been busy.

It's nice to have good friends, that really don't care how we look... they just love us, for being us ...*smile**.

I see you've done lots of driving. But it's fun to travel somewhere. And it's also wonderful to hang out with friends. Happy week to you!

Poppy said...

LOL at the brain/fat cell comparison!

YOU and your girlfriends are a very pretty bunch of gals, and I can imagine all the fun you must have together. Been running around 'that' vicious circle, myself, and IT ain't pretty at all!


Mrs. B, a very peculiar person said...

O.K. Lisa,

I shared the henway joke with Farmer Boy and he just laughed and laughed and laughed ...

Thanks for all the smiles.

Sounds like some fun, and fast getaways! All of you girls look just great with those big happy smiles! I will have to try that one on my hubby. I bet he will be just as amused! Have a great rest of the week!

Sounds like you have been very busy. I like to nap like the cat. ;) Great photos of your journeys, happy birthday to your mom, and I hate your friends, too. Heading for the little debbies now.

Stop putting yourself down. You are beautiful!!! And I'll bet not one of those girls holds a candle to you in the wit department! Love your green shirt.

I have a cousin in Metarie, which is a suburb of New Orleans. Wish I'd have known you were could have taken me with you! :) We could have had a ball!
