friendships....

Good morning Thursday......it's going to be another great day. I know you are all clamoring {is that a word?if so..i think it's a midwestern thing }... for the children's back to school pics.......and don't worry.....because there are plenty of them.

I just wanted to be selfish for a bit and tell you all about my first day of 'back to school'........

i mean....this blog isn't called "the Buick family " blog......so i have all right to talk about my day right?!

good.

then let's proceed.

I did sneak in just one photo for you...... I wanted to take some time out and tell you about a special group of girls.......

that get together one day every year.

I actually voted that this group get together every month.....so i'll let you know how that goes....

but when this group of girls gets together.....

we all put on our lovely orange ribbons....




super fancy...i know......and if you want one....just convo me.....i'll see what i can do for you.

Anyways....this group of girls.....

well.....

we're not really girls anymore....we are ladies....we are mom's...

dangit....we are girls.



... some of us show up at this meeting with bags under our eye's....

some still with some toddlers in tow.....

i'm not going to mention any names....but some show up with toilet paper clinging to their shoe.....

and some show up an hour early.....waiting at the front door.....



..for the annual......

"Mimosa's for mom's " ......







This group doesn't just rely on mimosa's.......there are plenty of fresh baked chocolate croissants from Trader Joe's...{have i told you how fabulous these are....and so not fattening....i promise.....}





this society wears their orange ribbon with pride......

and we do a lot for our community.....

well.....some of us do a lot for our community....

actually.....i can only think of one...and that's me......

and i'll let you know what i do......soon....








This group of "mimosa's for moms"....

we are about 18 in number....
and let me know if you want an application......we are a pretty lenient group....
but sorry....we are not taking "dad's" at the moment.....
well......
actually...we need one "dad"......
to help with the clean up crew.









and we believe in a healthy....beautiful .......love filled ....life.. for all.

I'm not into clubs, but this is definitely one that I'd like to join. I would just have to slip out of work for an hour or so to join you, but no problem, I've got a pager. Unfortunately, there's just one minor problem -I don't even live in the same country :-o

traci said...

what a great idea!!! friends are the greatest. 18 tipsy ladies by lunchtime - my kind of friends!!

Rachel said...

Can I move closer so I can come? Looks like fun!

Backyard Candle Co. said...

What a fun idea!

Jacqueline said...

I think that it's great when you all get together....hopefully you'll still be doing it when the children are grown up.....and you look as if you're all having a great time. XXXX

Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

This tradition of yours makes my heart sing. The simple ways that women find to celebrate their lives is always so inspiring. I love your orange ribbons, they are fabulous!

Allegra said...

Well, not that I'm in a rush for Ash to grow up, but you've given me a fabulous idea for later...when I'm assuming I must somehow acquire friends who are mom's. :)
For now I'll just find an orange ribbon, wear it, and tell everyone I'm drinking mimosas for a good cause. :)

littlebyrd said...

Sweet! and Fun! Definitely a monthly thing is in order :) Are you getting my return emails?

Jill said...

Oh that looks like a great way to celebrate the start of school! Once a month seems perfectly reasonable.....Can you believe I still have 2 weeks till I can have my own celebration??? It is killing me!

Sarah said...

How fun! I would love to have 18 women get together at my house! I keep voting for a girl's slumber party at my house and it WILL happen at some point this fall I swear!
I love the pictures! You are so pretty Kasey! Your children are just adorable!

Jennie said...

Such a great idea, and mom's always deserve a fun break. Oh, and love the little orange ribbons. Can we borrow your idea and start our own local chapters?

beauty comma said...

hi kasey, thank you so much for your comment today - it meant a lot to me (the journal is my new venture and it's more difficult than just blogging other people's photo)
looks like you had great fun!

NicNacManiac said...

For sure an occasion to celebrate!! Everyone looks very happy to have the kids back to school!

Vana said...

It was a fun morning, darling! Thanks for having us over. THe little dude loved it too!

JerriR said...

Oh Kasey am I too old for at least a "virtual" orange ribbon? :)
Maybe those of us new to the emptynester group need to wear black for mourning or perhaps red to celebrate...I am still waivering! Anyways you are so blessed with such beautiful friends and the most gorgeous children. Mason might not like it that I called him gorgeous but it is truth!

PS~Erin said...

Okay, I had a back-to-school coffee: How boring. Next year, it's going to be a mimosa party! I may have to do a after-winter-break mimosa party. Fun!!

When I was teaching, we did this too, at the END of the year. Now that I'm home, I think the beginning of the year is just perfect. Well done.
