In eleven days, Mr. Brady and I are headed to Phoenix to have a girls weekend with Melissa and Elli! Elli, Melissa, and I have been friends since junior high. We have been in each others' weddings, gone through boyfriends, breakups, and just about everything you can imagine. I love these two like crazy. We are staying with Melissa's parents (aka: Vick and Jim) who have a beautiful home in Phoenix. There is a gorgeous pool, a beautiful view of south mountain, and room for us all. Not to mention that Vick and Jim are like a second set of parents who happen to make me laugh like crazy. Seriously, I can't tell you how excited I am to have our old gang back...
This is a first for me. However due to the events in the last couple of months, we decided it was important to hangout, soak up some sun, and just relax together. I told the girls that I would have to bring Brady. I can't leave a little (wait: HUGE) three and a half month old. Plus, I am still nursing so obviously he is almost literally a part of me. I was concerned about having a baby in Elli's face the whole time, but she swore she was fine with it. Both girls have toddlers, so I think all they want is a little away time from that madness.
Unfortunately I can't find pictures right now of the three of us either. Go figure!
PS: Thank you to all of you for your eczema advice. I am currently using lanolin on his patches to block the itching, scratching, and scabbing. It's gross. I am going pretty much milk free to see what happens. The funny thing is, I have never been a milk person. So if it is milk, it's a good thing I don't really care for it anyway!
