So you may remember awhile back when I went to Sam's Oscar party that I mentioned an outing was planned to get more use out of our formal wear. Yesterday, that plan became a reality. Eight of us got gussied up and headed down to Soulard for drinks and dinner in our formal wear. It was a more low-key night that I was expecting (I wanted to shake my booty a little) but I think the not wanting to walk around in the pouring rain and cold had a part in that. (We actually took the bus down there so we would have had to walk to wherever we wanted to go.) We had fun anyway and I loved hanging out with my girls. You know how my blog is titled "Incredibly Blessed"? These ladies play a large part in making that title possible. :)

Lura's last day was this past Wednesday and we had her going away happy hour on Friday at Trainwreck. And by happy hour I mean I got there at 5:15 and left about 10. Good times.

Last weekend Aimee, Cyndi, Andy, Jon and I went to Beer School at AB. It's an hour class that is 30 minutes of learning about beer (valuable life skills like how to pour certain kinds of beer and how beer is made) and 30 minutes of tasting said beer and finding out which are your favorites. I am proud to say that we all passed with flying colors.

Saturday was the Mardi Gras parade in Soulard and also Cyndi's birthday. We combined the two events for a day of crazy fun. We met up in the morning at Cyndi's before heading to the parade. We took a few jello shots then piled into Nellie's car and headed out. I took several pictures, but blogger is dumb and downloads them upside down since they're from my phone (I fixed them on my computer) so you'll just have to use your imagination. I used to just do a quick copy/paste off Facebook since they upload the right way there, but Facebook doesn't let you do that anymore. I am very annoyed by this in case you can't tell.

Sunday night was the Oscars and Sam had people over to watch. She suggested everyone dress up and old bridesmaid or prom dresses were totally encouraged. It was a blast.

While we were in Charlotte visiting family we took a day trip to Charleston. The weather in Charlotte was awesome for the most part (60s and 70s) but it was definitely colder by the water! Mom and John had to buy warmer clothing at the City Market.
After the tour we headed home (about 3 hours). I took a nap in the car. :) Jackie and I went to a movie when we got back (Just Go With It) which was funny. I love hanging out with her... too bad we don't live in the same city!
Overall it was a great trip. I love going to visit them and always have a good time. Jackie and I get along great and we can always pick up right where we left off like no time has passed. Good times.

The day after my birthday Mom and I headed to Charlotte, NC to visit family for President's Day weekend. Our flights out there were uneventful and we arrived in Charlotte about 11:30pm. John, Jackie and Christopher picked us up at the airport and after chatting a bit we all headed to bed because it was pretty late. Friday morning Mom and John (her cousin) headed to see the Biltmore (a mansion about 3 hours away) and I hung out with Jackie (my second cousin, John's daughter) and her boys, Alex and Chris. We went out to the outlet malls and did some shopping (yay Old Navy deals!) and caught up.
Friday night I hung out at Jackie and Patrick's house with some of their friends and George (Jackie's brother). We had pizza and played games. It was fun. Mom, John and Aline (John's wife) went out to dinner at their country club (George was mad he missed it.) Saturday Jackie and I went to lunch and did a little shopping since we didn't have the boys (a treat for her) and that afternoon I hung out with Mom, John and George in the hot tub.
Sat. evening Jackie, Patrick (Jackie's husband) and I went out for sushi for their friend Rachel's birthday. It was REALLY loud in the restaurant but the food was good and we had a good time.
