You know how you can just tell when you have a really good friend?? The type of person that you know is such a blessing in your life... the type of person that is there through the good and bad, laughter and tears. I'm so fortunate to have people like this in my life and last night I got to hangout with one of my absolute favorites.  The Lohreys came to visit!!

When Matt and I first decided to move to Texas I was terrified. Like crying, throwing a fit, begging Matt not to make me go terrified.  I wanted no part of it.  I didn't want to live in Texas, I didn't want to move away from my family, I didn't want to take a chance on him coaching.  I acted like a two-year old and while I'm not proud of my actions when I think back to those few days there is one bright spot.  I got a call from someone I'd maybe talked to once or twice in my life. Brian's wife Lyndsey.  She called to say that she was excited for us to be living near her and Brian, that yes, she understood how hard things would be during the next year because she was currently living the same life.  But more than that her call told me, without a doubt, I had a friend in Texas. 

Sadly (for me, not for them) the Lohrey's moved away but they have been back to visit a few times and we always have a blast.  I can't remember the last time I laughed as hard as I did last night.  And as an added bonus, Lindsay Thomas came to visit too!!

Avery and Kai were so cute together.  Kai was one exhausted kiddo but he was such a trooper... seriously, I was very impressed.

He showed her how to work the ball bopper.

He tried to help her get that crazy pink thing out of her hair.  I'm glad to see I've trained little miss well... she wasn't about to let him take her bow!

Okay, now they're ready to make up and be BFF's again

Doin' a little dancing

Can you say

Get us out of here!!

I absolutely love this picture!! How cute are Kai and Avery staring at each other with love in their eyes!?!

We had to snap a picture with Lindsay Thomas and little baby GIRL Thomas!!  

What a fun night!! Lyndsey... please come back soon, I miss you already!!!


  1. Seriously just made me all teary! I miss you guys so much and am already trying to scheme a plan to get us back there! I tried to hide in your closet, hoping Brian would just leave me and Kai behind, but stinkin' toddlers are just too loud and we were found fairly quickly :) Thanks for everything!!! It was so great to laugh with good friends again!!

  2. Now there's the Kai I didn't see that night! Haha! Those pictures of them are SO cute! It was so fun seeing you and finally meeting Avery! And Lyndsey - come back soon please!
