A Girls Night!

Saturday night was a GIRLS NIGHT OUT with my mom, grandma, and sisters!! We don't have them often enough, but when schedules align and we finely have the opportunity to get together-just us girls- it's NEVER dull!  Fun times are always had and sweet memories are sure to be made. Saturday night was no different. We were supposed to meet at the Cheesecake Factory at 5o'clock for dinner and to celebrate my mom's birthday, but when we arrived  they were already at a two-and-a-half hour wait. That was just a little too long for our taste, so we tried the restaurant next door. Their wait was already super long too.  We called a few other places, but with wait times climbing higher and higher, we ended up at.....
The Original Pancake House!!!! 
 Yes, it's true- it was no Cheesecake Factory, but hey, it was still yummy and definitely hit the spot.
I mean really, what's better than sprinkle pancakes anyway!
Oh, and yes, it was supposed to be a "No boys allowed" party, but we made an exception for this sweet little guy;)

After dinner, we headed to the mall because...someone was getting their ears pierced!
Yup, Miss Sophie decided a few months ago that she was ready for earrings. Shane and I went back and forth on if we should do it or not, but ultimately decided she could get them done.
Saturday night was THE night. 
When we got to the mall, Sophie marched right into the jewelry store, hopped up in the chair, and declared was ready to have her ears pierced! She was so excited and there wasn't an ounce of hesitation on her part. I, on the other hand, was a nervous wreck and my stomach was in total knots.
 
  I had explained to her several times exactly what was going to happen in hopes that she would know what to expect.
 Sophie picked out a pretty pair of pink studs and with in seconds, it was all over. 
 She didn't cry,  barely winced, and was all smiles again after it was over!
 She was so very BRAVE and I was so proud of her!

And as we made our way out of the mall that night, Sophie stopped to check herself out in EVERY MIRROR we passed!  She even stopped to see if the manikins were wearing earrings;)
It was such a special night for my girl and a blessing to share it with all the girls in my family;)
