This is one goal I was EXTREMELY excited to accomplish. For those that haven't been pregnant, whattoexpect.com has a ton of message boards, including one for each month of each year so that women who are due around the same time can chat. I met some of my best girlfriends on there and still talk to them daily. The six of us live in separate parts of the country, with the exception of two who live in the same state, just different sides of it (and one of them living in Canada!). I was SO jealous when they met up and was sad that nobody lived near me.
Then one day, one of the girls, Erin, tells me that she's coming home for the holidays. Home to her = Massachusetts. I just about died. We talked about how we were going to go to Boston and wreak havoc with the babies and her other daughter Paige, who is 6. That idea was shot down when we realized that hey, we're meeting in December and it's COLD. The hotel she stayed at is about 10 minutes away from one of the local malls so we decided to meet there, have lunch, and do some shopping. I counted down the days for 2 weeks and finally, yesterday, it happened! When we got out of the car, it was just like hanging out with your best friend and going shopping. There were no awkward moments or any of that. I'm sure it helps that all of us Skype a few times a week. But anyway, on with the pictures!
Me with Mina & Aubrey!

We all had a blast and I can't wait for her to be up this way again! On my way home, I realized Erin & I didn't get ANY pictures together and I was so bummed. Next time, for sure!
