Baking at Midnight

Tonight I had a blast with some of my bestest friends ever.

We ate incredibly delicious food at an amazing restaurant.
 { I had Butternut Squash Gnocchi with Grilled Chicken - doesn't that just sound amazing?}

Laughed until our tummys hurt.

Talked about

Ate delectable desserts.

Shopped at Target and didn't want to leave.

It was so what I needed.

I felt refreshed and ready to go back home to my kids.

I love being able to be "real" and know that they aren't judging me.

I love being able to talk about how tough this Mommy Thing is some days and know that they completely understand what I'm going through because they are too.

What an amazing group of friends God has blessed me with.

P.S. I just baked a "from scratch" cake just now at 12am because I had entirely way too much caffeine tonight! So worth it!


  1. Good for you Joy! I've done the baking at midnight thing and baking is therepudic for me and so when I can't sleep I will sometimes get up and get busy in the kitchen...kinda fun to work in the kitchen without noise or interruptions!

  2. I had an A-W-E-S-O-M-E time too! I just love all you guys and am so glad that I somehow managed to finagle my way into this great group of women!! And I SO agree that we should make this a monthly thing!
