Either matching tattoos or matching purses

My friend Amy volunteered to help me find some girl time and escape my "Tyrannosaurus Rex" mood. So we "got away" to a nearby city for an overnight, with lot's of shopping and giggling fun.

We've been friends for 23 years. We've been through "life" together. Many times sharing tears and laughter together as we "grew up" and learned to become women. Never have I doubted that if I needed her, she'd be there. Soooo........ when she heard that I was desperate for some "girl time" she came to my rescue.

There just isn't anything as healing as laughing 'til ya cry and as we age...... the "other" saying makes more sense..... i.e. meaning we do more cross-legged laughing these days. :)

Since we've been through everything together...... we decided it was time. Time to do something to honor our "sisterhood". Sooo...... it was either a matching tattoo or matching purses.


After much thought we decided to get matching ............

Cool picture of our purse!

I still think we should get a tattoo, though. :-D

I was SO excited to scroll down and see you and Amy's new tattoo! HA! But I love the purse! What a great bag for spring!

I admire (and envy) the sort of friendship the two of you share. It's a cherished thing, indeed.

I can't believe Amy didn't talk you into a tattoo, though, Laurie. ;-)

Beautiful purse! I do admit I was worried for a minute about you gals getting a tattoo...

Sounds like you had a fun girl time!
