My Weekend in Boise




A few weeks ago, my mom, sisters and I all met in Boise for a girls weekend. We'd never done anything like this before, and we were amazed at how delightful and stress-free it was. We got to chat, play makeup, play games, (anyone tried the game curses?) have a clothing exchange, all kinds of fun things all without trying to cajole bored spouses, quiet children, and tend to grouchy babies. It was such a relief to just enjoy each other without dealing with all these issues. We swam, shopped, caught a movie, and best of all, we got to know our new baby sister-in-law Jenny. She's adorable! We are all so charmed by her sweetness. As a family of sisters with only one brother, we worried about what it would be like having another woman in the family that's not us. What if she's a snob? What if she doesn't want to borrow our maternity clothes? We got so lucky! She's the best.
