Beautiful blue pearl and crystal flourishes, leaves and can you believe that crystal butterfly? That one's my favorite. The little blue and white roses came in a little bundle together. I had a lot of roses left over for future use too.

My baby and I. More crystal and pearl butterflies.

This is Amanda and her boyfriend, Tim. They have been together for years. It's adorable, they're the best.
This big furry thing with the face on it is a muff. It's made of some kind of dead animal, gross. Our friend, Holly, found it in some thrift shop in Minnesota and gave it to Amanda for Christmas, haha! It's such a "Holly" kind of gift to give. She is sooo goofy if you knew her you would totally get it. We had fun throwing the thing at people all night, everyone thought it was disgusting, it was great!
Of course we had to pose with the nasty muff a little bit, it's what we do.
Holly, Amanda and me.
Holly lives in Minnesota with her fiance now so we don't get to see her very often anymore. I was so excited to find out that she was coming to visit Montana during the time that I would be there.
Here's Amanda and Tim's pet ferret, Philipo. This is a photo of him chewing on his "Great Grandfather", lol! The mink scarf (or whatever kind of animal it's made out of- we thought it looked like a ferret!) was another nasty thrift shop gift that Holly gave to her sister.
We had such fun goofing off ALL night, telling old jokes from high school. I don't think I stopped laughing for about 5 hours strait!
Holly's daughter, Jamie, who's almost SIX was there too! I cannot believe how big she is!! It had been almost two years since I had seen her last. It made me sad how I used to change her little diapers when she was a baby and she didn't remember me. Sighhh. It sucks when your friends move away or when you move away from them. She is just the cutest thing though, she acts SO much like Holly! Alex and Jamie played all night. We think that they got along so well because Jamie is just like Holly and Alex is so much like me. Of COURSE they would get along! :)

A couple little things that have made me super happy today:
I'm so glad to have my super fast internet and my OWN computers again.
I love that my cat is following me everywhere again.
I love that my dog didn't forget me :)
I had no idea how much I would miss hanging out in my own house.
I love that I got to hang out in my scrap room again after Alex went to bed.
I love that John, Alex and I chilled in my OWN backyard all afternoon today.
Those are just a few things that I found thrilling today. It's kind of funny how to small things that are usually taken for granted mean so much more when you don't have them for awhile!
