Today is my wonderful hubby's 25th birthday!!! He is wonderful- does laundry, dishes, pretty much any cleaning, takes the dog out every morning, and much, much more! We are just sitting here full of mexican food and ice cream cake. But still, good birthday! (Party with our friends to come on the 22nd!) Love you Clayton! (aka "Coach Hall"!)

No, not the TV show...:)

So, today I went shopping in Wilmy with my mother-in-law. (So glad we have a great relationship and i love her...) Anyway, while driving to and fro we had some great chats. One of many topics discussed was friends. And it reminded me of one of the things i like least about where i live, here in Eastern NC... my lack of friends. It is the one thing that keeps me from being content with where we live now. All the people i know live at least a few hours away, which is not really conducive for Saturday night wine/game night or quick shopping trips or fun dinner parties, which are all things I really want to do. It is hard to make friends in a place where hardly any young people live. (Ex: Church today- everyone there was over 40 or in high school and younger...) We do get together with friends often- Clayton's friends, all guys, and honestly, i sometimes feel left out and i feel like i know more about how guys think than i ever wanted. I just really want some good girl friends here... but making friends is hard! (especially when you there has to be people to meet first!) I will keep my eyes peeled for 20-something year olds to be my bff's... and see how that works out! ha!
