Hello Everyone!

So I am going to break the rules and blog a little out of order because I am so excited to tell everyone about this past weekend!!!  Last month one of my best friends from college, Jenn, had her little baby girl, Bexleigh Anniston!  She is the first of the college buddies (aka the Gamma Gallo Girls) to have a baby, so it is oh so exciting news.  My other college BFF, Jenny D, and I decided that we absolutely had to make a trip out to see her and little Bex.  We called Jenn's mom and told her we wanted to come and make it a surprise, we found amazing deals on a flight Friday night after work, and next thing we knew, we were heading to LaGuardia to hop on a plane and surprise our buddy.  Jenn's mom (Momma Mullet) and her boyfriend, Bobby, picked us up from the airport on friday night and we headed straight to Jenn's house.  On the 30 minute drive over, we contemplated different ways to actually do the surprise and decided that Momma Mullet and Bobby would walk in first and talk to Jenn while Jenny D and I hid in the kitchen.  We were so anxious and excited driving up to her house, we could hardly contain ourselves.  When we finally got there, we crawled out of the car, into the garage and quickly hid in the kitchen to wait for our cue.  Unfortunately, we forgot to make a cue, so we just stood in there for a few minutes trying to stifle laughter and find the perfect opportunity to jump out.  When we finally did come out of hiding, Jenny D and I immediately broke down into tears....seeing our best college buddy, sitting there in the darkness with her little baby girl was just too much for the emotions and we let it all out.  Jenn just sat there, completely awestruck, repeating over and over "Are you guys really here?!?"  It was one of the best surprises ever!!  The rest of the weekend flew by, but we had so much fun snuggling up to Baby Bex, taking her on a fieldtrip to Kohl's, eatin' good in the neighborhood at Applebees, and going on a 2 1/2 mile walk around Jenn's town on the gorgeous Saturday afternoon.  I am so excited that I got to see my little niecey this early on in her little life!  I just love her so much and I am so thrilled for Jenn and Brian....congrats Klopfers!!!!
