Withdrawals and Cupcakes

PRELUDE:
About 5 1/2 years ago, I moved to Germany and met Lesa for the first time.

We struck up a friendship that was more like a sisterhood and it was like we had known each other forever!
A little over 2 years ago, we parted ways.
WELL!
This weekend was seriously F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!!
Because what is better than a great conversation with one of your best friends?
Having them VISIT!!!
Unfortunately, most of the good pictures are Lesa's camera.
So I have just a few good ones to post, until I get the rest from Lesa.
Here's how the weekend broke down.
FRIDAY NIGHT:

Lesa flew in at 9 and we stayed up talking til 2:30 in the morning.
SATURDAY:
We just hung out most of the day.
Then made Jeaneice's cornbread salad recipe.
THEN Jeaneice and Ciana came over!
They drove up from El Paso to see us.
Then the duets concert...and it was FUN!
I accompanied Holly singing a song from an opera and she was AMAZING.
And I played in "The Stars and Stripes" quartet.
Videos to come later.
SUNDAY:
Church...of course!
Then we saw the temple.
Lesa took our family pictures.
They turned out GREAT, but you'll have to wait for those too.
And we made cupcake bites. I actually have pictures for those!

MONDAY:
We hit up Old Town!
I almost got us killed on the way.
There was a car seriously speeding through my blindspot.
I can't believe I've been back for nearly 2 years and haven't been to Old Town.
It was a lot of fun.
Then we saw my mom and said hi.
Shopped at Target.
Sat on the roof to watch the Sandias turn pink.
The kids made us get down sooner than it was time.
Ashlynne didn't like Ryan too much.
And that night we saw "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past".
It was pretty cute.
A little heavy on the innuendos, but it was fun to be out and about.

TUESDAY:
*sniff* Lesa went home. *sniff*

WEDNESDAY:
I am in withdrawals.
I had such a blast!
THANK YOU LESA FOR COMING TO VISIT!


And good thing I have cupcake bites to eat...
