Thank You B.A.D. Girls!

I seriously have the best groups of girlfriends! I've got a wonderful group of ladies from church who keep me sane with regular Girls' Nights Out (or GNOs, as we call them) and Girl Weekends! We all get along so well & have so much fun together. I've also got a terrific group of girlfriends through my Wylie Moms group. They are all terrific moms and great friends! And, lastly, I have an awesome group of girlfriends through my book club! They are beautiful, superb ladies!! And, I just received a fun box of goodies from them in the mail: a new monogrammed book club shirt (so cool!), some delicious Christmas candy, and wrapped Christmas presents!! I was so excited, I started crying! Christmas has been quite an emotional roller coaster for me this year. This will be our first Christmas without any family around & it's hot as he$$!!! I am trying really hard to adjust & not let those things bother me, but I'd be lying if I said they didn't. But when I received this package in the mail from my fellow B.A.D. Girls, it brought so much joy to me!! So, thank you, Stephanie, Lindsay (who someday might start her blog!), Becky, Dara and Rachel!! You ladies are so wonderful & just absolutely made my day! I am saving the wrapped presents until Christmas, so it will be a nice surprise! (Also, in case you're wondering after my ranting email the other day, no I did not have to pay customs taxes on your package!) So, once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart! I love you ladies & I am so grateful to still participate in the book club from across the world! Merry Christmas!

Yea!! So glad you got it- and before Christmas, too! It was all we could do to not say anything about it when we spoke to you on the phone Monday. The shirts are so awesome- Dara did the embroidery. We've worn ours to the past 2 meetings. Now we can post the picture of us wearing them on the blog...we didn't want to spoil your surprise! Love you lots!

Rachel said...

Yay - I'm glad you finally got the package! And even more glad that you didn't have to pay for it!

Stephanie said...

Merry Christmas Amberly! We miss you sooo much and can't wait till you come back! I'm so glad you got your present in time for Christmas!

Oh, I am so glad you got the package! And before Christmas! Yes, we were going crazy when you talked about picking up packages and wondering what they were...we were a bit disappointed when you said they were contacts and books. I am so glad you didn't have to pay to get our box! I am glad the shirt fits and you like it! We sure miss you! Hope Christmas went well!

Hi Mrs. Espinosa! Hope you all had a great Christmas.:-) We all enjoyed the Christmas video on your Photo site. It was fun to see what you all have been up to in the past few months. :-) How did you put the video/slideshow together? It was fun to watch!:-)
