~*Suprise Visit With A Friend & The Search For Henna*~

TGIF!! It was actually a pretty fast week with having Monday off, can't believe it's already Friday.
Had a nice last minute visit with my sweet friend last night, aren't those unexpected times the best?? She's leaving to go out of town for her niece's wedding and needed a haircut so I went and got her and brought her here....had so much fun together!!
We haven't had the chance to visit in awhile so it was wonderful to just sit on the porch and talk & talk & talk....She's like a second mom to my youngest son and he was happy to spend a little time visiting too. We've decided that we are having a girl's night soon! I am planning a Saturday night in the next few weeks to have some of my best girls over!! Sweatpants, wine,snacks & maybe a good sappy movie.
It was great to have uninterrupted time sidetracking :o) Although we talk nearly every day there's something so much nicer about being together. She went home with a pretty new haircut, a tummy full of leftover pasta & cupcakes and I got the best part ~ to share it all with her!
This weekend I think we're also finally going to be able to get together with some of our other friends that we  haven't been able to see in awhile. Their daughter plays on a traveling softball team and every weekend is usually taken up. We're hoping for a cookout & bonfire....keeping my fingers crossed!! Same thing with her, we talk on the phone all the time but I really miss seeing her!
I was supposed to be with another one of my friends today for her neighborhood yard sale. About a month ago she let me know about it and we were going to do it but she decided at the last minute she didn't want to. I was looking forward to spending the time together as it seems like every time I try to make plans with her it falls through and I was really hoping it would work out this time. Bummer!! I've been getting things ready for the past week and 1/2  for the sale so I think my hubby & I will go to the flea market to sell it this Sunday. My friend that was here last night was originally going to go with me but she's leaving for the wedding early Sunday morning now. I have way too much time invested in sorting & pricing stuff & really need the $ so I hope it doesn't rain!! My husband actually enjoys the flea market so I think it will end up being fun.

Sooooo......I have a mission today. I am on the search for a Henna Tattoo Kit!! I've always wanted to try it and I saw one at Michael's a few weeks ago. Hoping they still have it. I have my 40% off coupon ready to go. I'm planning on a floral band on my left wrist, a little design on the top of my right foot and something small around my belly ring....yep you heard me right LOL Let me say that I had it done 14 years ago. My hubby was getting a tattoo and while I was waiting for him I decided I would do it as he loved the way it looked. Let me also say that it HURT!!!!
This was before every girl you see had a belly piercing so I was embarrassed that I had wasn't the "norm". It ended up getting infected and I had to go to my doctor & was humiliated LOL. I certainly don't show it as I don't have one of those nice little tummies but I keep it for my hubby.....the things we do for love!!
I'm adding a link to a great henna site I found if you are curious....hope I can find it!!
Hope you all have a great Friday!!   ~Kriss~


  1. I love spending time with friends ~ especially when we are being creative and working on projects. Have fun at the flea market this weekend! My girlfriend used to get those kind of tatoos

  2. Girls night sounds wonderful.I used to have my bestie over all the time before she passed away.Miss her every day...Henna tattoo's I used to do them all the time when I was younger.Before the tattoo's were the big thing..LoL...I should do it again was actually thinking about it a few weeks ago for a trip to the shore.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  3. Fun times!! Wish I could come to your girls' night!! (Heck - I could use a haircut and leftover pasta, and a cupcake too!!) Hope you get to the flea market and are successful - that's a lot of work to put into something and then have the plans fall apart....Henna tattoos, hey??? I've seen some I've actually really liked....Wonder if I would be brave enough!! Have fun!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin


I Love to hear from you!!
