Happy Girls! 5/9/2011
Audrey Hepburn said: “I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
I’ve always loved Audrey Hepburn, and I really like that part about happy girls being the prettiest girls. As you can see from the pics below, we’ve got us a mess of happy women here at the ri’vah!
The Girls Night Out for May - that I thought I was going to miss - was rescheduled for an earlier night. We all gathered at twilight at Booger Bottom, which had been totally cleared of all men for the occasion, and I just have to tell you they were pretty grumpy about it. Have you ever seen anything much prettier than sundown on water.
Everyone's favorite Boogerette - Renae, whose mom and dad own the Bottom. We were celebrating Cinco de Mayo - well, really it was Quatro de Mayo - but who cares!
Look! The little bumps on these straws open into flowers!
Sue and Marianne, sharing a laugh. Geez, I'm going to miss all these ladies!
Tooters. I'd never heard of them, will not reveal what's in them, but can safely and confidently say . . .
. . . . we enjoyed them immensely!
Lights have been added to the tree in front of the Bottom. Pretty!
Serenity on the outside . . .
. . . and inside - well, let's just say what goes on inside at Booger Bottom STAYS inside at Booger Bottom.
This last photo is from the Kentucky Derby party at the Bottom on Saturday. Men were allowed at this one, but the girls had fun with the annual hat contest. That's Pat, Lisa (being attacked by that feather in Pat's hat), me (peeking out from under the brim of my black hat), Dawn, Renae, Sue, and Sally. Sally won, with Pat taking second. Animal Kingdom won the Derby.
I can’t believe our time at the ri’vah is almost over, but from the piles of clothes stacked on our guest room beds, I know “leaving day” is almost here. Tune in Friday night – or Saturday morning – for the last post from Georgia for a few months. Hope you’re planning on following us up to Michigan for the summer!
P.S. Happy Mother’s Day to all the readers out there who can claim this holiday as their own. I bet each and every one of you also claim to have the best mom on the planet. I know mine was!
