The Wives Club

While Adam is out selling, I am left here at the apartment car-less and husbandless for the rest of the day. So how do I occupy myself so I do not go completely insane? The Wives Club! Luckily, there are 6 other awesome wives (and 1 way cute baby)! We have started several traditions over the past month which we love. Every Friday we all go to lunch. Last Friday we went to a little Mexican restaurant, which sadly wasn't very good. When Rachel asked for some ranch for her taco salad, they gave her this Costco size bottle of Hidden Valley. We swore they just ran to the grocery store next door to get it for her!
I have also really gotten into crafting. One Friday after lunch, we went walking around St. Charles and walked into a store with lots of fun stuff in it. We all saw this calendar/organizer center and decided we could all use one of those, but not for the price! So I went to the craft store and decided to make my own. Since then, the wives have been calendar center making machines and we have all made a few for gifts. Here are a few I've made:
After perusing Martha Stewart's website, I stumbled upon this really cute idea for a baby gift. Since I'm only around one baby out here, and she is the cutest baby around anyway, I gave the blocks to Bria! I'm sure I will be making more in the future!

In addition to the above mentioned activities, the most popular and most frequent Wives Club activity includes sitting at the pool and being the weird chicks who play cards or dice EVERY DAY! We love Nertz, Rummy, Hearts and Dice! I have so much fun with these girls and I'm so thankful that they are out here! Really, I don't know what I'd do without them. And I think Adam appreciates them keeping me company as well. Yay for Wives Club!

I'm so jealous! I have nobody to hang out with here in Portland. And it's such a bummer, too, because there are so many things to do here that just aren't as fun alone.

Can I move in with you?!
