After that the girls went with their GOD-MAMMA's for a hang out and a sleep over ... FUN
So me+heather+welly went on alittle drive around looking at houses and such in the Pasedena area ... SO AWESOME ... loved the old town and the architecture.
Quick drive up the hill to the house for a quick change and off to the story party :)
We went to Tami+Matthew's beautiful home with 4 cats and 2 dogs and met a ton of people. We all broke bread and drank some liquid courage and got ready for story time. We had a few icebreakers then started to tell stories one at a time. The stories were AMAZING. The group was pretty creative and interesting. I did not have to tell my story. OH WELL ...
Did I mentions Welly's Ailurophobia ?
Really COOL day ... need sleep as we are heading to the GETTY in the a.m Sunday :)
