Girls Weekend 2013


Back in 2010 I had the desire to go to a craft fair in chicago. Ben in his pure genius recommended that rather than having him go with me, to ask my sister to come instead. After giving her a call, she recommended we ask mom to come too and there it turn into a girls weekend. Momma Bear was called and she agreed.  In that moment a yearly tradition was born.

I loved the time I spent with my sister and mom. With both of them in the ministry, weekends are often busy and the opportunity to go somewhere and rest together is something I treasure every year.

This year we headed to stillwater for our 4th getaway. I got to plan it and thought it would be the perfect spot for some fun. It was a blast. The first full day we enjoyed the antiquing stillwater is known for, Nelson's ice cream (whose 'child sized ice cream' is literally the size of a newborn), shopping at craft stores and discount clothes stores and noshing on some gluten-free pizza. We hot tubbed and watched movies and got my mom caught up on funny youtube videos. The following day we hit up a flea market,  the farmers market, and checked out the courthouse. We just enjoyed each others company while collecting treasures (both tangible and non.)

Right towards the end, when Ben came to pick me up, I got to snap a few pictures of all of us together. All the Thompson girls. I look forward to when E is older to enjoy these times, but they're special now in that I get to take a break and both Bre and I are child-free.  Its super life giving.
It was all that a girls weekend should be.
