Wow! I'm such a slacker... My husband and I had a bit of an impromptu vacation come up. We were only planning to spend the day, but we ended up spending several days with my best friend from college. It was her birthday week! (I know, not just her birthday but the whole week!) What was going to be an afternoon turned into something entirely different!

I know, I know... I'm surprised I'm showing this photo because
of how awful I look in it. But isn't that the sweetest puppy ever?
We started out visiting, just catching up on old times. We hadn't been able to get together in over 2 years due to money, schedule, etc. Turns out a lot can happen in 2 years! Her kids... omg, they're such adorable little guys, and they're WAY too smart for their own good! And her dog... I have no words. That dog was glued to me for at least 75% of the time we were there. He's a lab mix, and is the most gentle affectionate dog I think I've ever met! We spent most of our time like this:

Matty has perfected the "poor widdle me" look.
He's such a demanding guy, too! If I stopped petting him, he'd start making the petting motion with his paw, as if to say, "Hey, petting lady, you stopped with the petting! Here, you do it like this!" If I didn't start up again, he'd slowly sit up and turn to look at me, giving me this face.

Honestly, how could you deny that face?? He's so gentle and loving, and he didn't cover my face in kisses which was a good thing. Other than the occasional little lick on the hand, he just wanted to snuggle, which was fine by me!

I know, I'm talking too much about the dog. But come on, can you blame me? We did more than just hang out with Matty, too!
I love sharing!

Since it was my friend's birthday, I brought my polish with me. Yes, almost all of it... it took 4 boxes to manage it, too! I let her dig through and pick, and boy did she pick some good ones! I had some small empty bottles too, so polishes I wasn't willing to completely part with I decanted for her. Can I just say she fell in total love with the BPAL polishes?

We also got to go out to dinner with more friends I haven't seen in years, as well as making new friends! Then we got wild and went to a casino in Biloxi! It was fun stopping at the beach to take pictures. Unfortunately, we didn't have our camera with us, so they're on other people's computers. Still, it was wonderful!

All in all, this was a fantastic vacation that I got to spend with some of my best friends in the whole world. I wouldn't trade a minute of it. I had so much fun, and I hope we helped make my friend's birthday a great one.
