Iowa has a special place in my heart

It is so great to be back to the Café!! I went to see some of my very closest friends in Iowa last week and it was just what I've been needing!! These ladies are truly the sweetest, caring and silliest sisters ever!
I am so bonded with these two and feel so at home when I'm with them.
I'm so honored to be a bridesmaid in Erienne's wedding this coming May and I was so ecstatic I could make the trip out to see her before all of the festivities begin. Although, we sure had a pretty festive time this go round!

If there ever was a trio that loved 80's movies so hard core, you'd have to rank us at the top!
Let's just say the last visit we watched Mannequin 1 & 2 and the super 80's movie, Teen Witch!
(It's ok if you've never heard them before...but OH BOY you should give them a watch!)
This year we knocked out FIVE 80's classics in just a couple short days.

Then we had to re-watch Bridesmaids and all of its glorious humor!
Of course it wouldn't be a perfect trip without making it to the real live theatre!
Erienne and I used to go to the movies almost every other day when she lived in NC!
I'd skip class to fill up on popcorn and candy, then grab a comfy seat at the local movie theatre with my fave girl ;) This year we watched the AMAZING Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn! It was a perfect time to see it because the hyped crowds had already come and gone by then. I loved it so much, I'm ready to see it a second time!

This trip, like all the rest in Iowa, leaves you feeling nothing short of stuffed!
Us three sure like to eat good meals and there are so many fantastic restaurants to choose from in the city.
You can also add chocolate covered gummy bears and popcorn into that diet of ours. 

I can't say thanks enough to my twinsie, Erienne and her lovely sis, Emily, for making this another incredible flight out of reality! Actually, it IS OUR reality and these memories we keep making together will forever be embedded in my heart!!

Thank goodness it will only be months until I see you next! and then another month after that!


I want to shout out a super, great Thank You to all my guests last week while I was away.

Emily: Recently
Erika: Small Shop
Anna: IHOD

You ladies did a tremendous job filling in!!

Did you just say - Teen Witch??!!! Oh. My. Goodness. I used to watch it at least once a day! In fact, I was just thinking of it a few weeks ago! You girls are all so adorable and it looks like you had the best time ever! Time spent with best friends is priceless!

Elissa said...

If you want to see Breaking Dawn again I need someone to go with before it leaves the theaters!!! I don't have a babysitter and so Aaron and I can't go, but I could have him watch the boys and go with you some night. Let me know!!
