This weekend I celebrated my BFF Cindy's birthday with her in Little Rock.

Her birthday was in December but this was the first time we were able to get together and spend the weekend together.

I called her husband the week of her birthday to make sure that a weekend away was ok with him. And it was. And he bought her Christmas presents accordingly. Gift cards and luggage! What a guy!!

We left Friday and met at lunch time. So we flipped a coin to decide lunch. El Chico ( a long-standing favorite of ours) or Olive Garden (where we have lunch now as grown ups.) Cindy flipped it and it landed on tails, so El Chico it was! Good stuff. And we caught up on everything that had gone on in my life since the last time we saw each other.

Then we were off to the mall. We shopped and shopped and shopped some more. We tried on clothes and laughed. It was so much fun! We bought a few things, she used a gift card or two, and then we left.

We went to the hotel, got an upgrade and enjoyed an appetizer in the lounge before we headed to Bonefish. This we also flipped for. Bonefish was tails, PF Changs was heads. Tails it was! We had an hour wait at Bonefish, so like good girls. We went shopping and found pretty much the best deals of the weekend at Belk!

Then we went to the movie, but they didn't have a 9:00 show. Crazy! So, we headed to JCPenney. Then to the hotel to watch tv and plop down on the cushiest, whitest, softest beds. It was so comfy.

We slept until 8:30! I know.

We had breakfast at Krispy Kreme. There was no need to flip a coin for this one. I have only tried their glazed and their chocolate do-nuts. But today I ventured out. I got an ice-cream filled do-nut(which is not filled with ice cream, but something like cake icing. Which is DELISH!) and a sour cream do-nut. Oh my goodness. Why have I waited so long?

We did some more shopping and buying. Old Navy, Target, Barnes & Noble. Then lunch. It really wasn't necessary that we eat lunch. We had just eaten do-nuts but we are girls and we like to eat. So, heads-Purple Cow, tails-Mimi's Cafe. Tails it was. And we were so glad. It is such a girly kind of place. We had a great waiter and took the only picture of the trip.

It was a great time. I'm so glad we got to do it.

How was your weekend?
