Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Well, it's a girl's night out...

Well, it's a girl's night out 
Honey, there ain't no doubt 
I'm gonna dance every dance 'til the boys go home 
Well, it's my night to rock 
No watchin' that ol' clock 
Oh, ain't no doubt, Lordy it's a girl's night out 

Friday finally came around 
This girl's ready to paint the town 
Tonight ain't nothin' gonna slow me down 

I did my time workin' all week 
Tonight's all mine, tomorrow I'll sleep 
I wanna hear a band with a country sound 

Well, I've been couped up all week long 
I've been workin' my fingers to the bone 

-The Judds - Girls Night Out

This past weekend I enjoyed not only a night of Girls Night Out but a whole weekend!  It was wonderful!  Two of my closest girl friends from Boston (along with a new friend that is best buds with Kelly) met in Naples, FL for a wonderful girls weekend.  It was truly perfect.  After the week I had with Miller and his many was a much needed reprieve away.  We stayed at Kelly's parents house which was gorgeous (I took pics for inspiration for our new house) and lounged around at the Ritz...not really the Ritz but it was just like it.  Kelly's grandparents place was a.m.a.z.i.n.g!  Truly amazing!  Only 16 units in this one beautiful building overlooking the beach and ocean with a full time concierge, a pool, and hot tub.  I could definitely live this life.  We relaxed and really spent the weekend just having a great time.  I wasn't sure what to expect going into it because I have never traveled with them (besides our ski trip in Boston but that was families) but it couldn't have been more perfect.  We were all on the same page as far as resting, relaxing, and going out.  We all woke up super early because we had 6:00 am flights to catch Friday morning but it made for over 1/2 a day in Naples lounging by the beach and pool. 
Hello's so good to see you. #girlstripinfullswing Nice to see you...good for my soul. Untitled Untitled  
That night we took it easy by stopping at 5 Guys in our bathing suits and then heading back to the house to shower, get in pj's, make rice krispie treats, and just hang out together.   

Saturday we all slept in, made a delicious breakfast, and then headed back to the beach to lounge some more.

Saturday night we dressed up and headed out to a really fun restaurant that had delicious food and fun music.  There was one guy singing but he literally never stopped.  He sang for hours without ever taking a break.  We were the youngest (and also the only pregnant woman in sight) so we enjoyed dancing our hearts out with the new friends we made.

Sunday we slept in again and then after cleaning up the house to lock up, we headed back to the beach for the day.  We all booked the last flight out of Naples so it gave us an entire day at the beach.

We took a long walk down the beach and decided to take some fun pictures of all of us together. Untitled
Yes, they are making a heart on my belly. =)  They already love baby girl!
To end the trip with a bang Kelly's grandpa made sure we all rode to the airport in style. Untitled Untitled
Thank you Kelly for a wonderful weekend that I will cherish forever.  It truly was perfect in every way.
