Yesterday was Allison aka "Soapie's" birthday. We had a small get together for her and had a great time hanging out together for the evening. She had requested that I make a big pot of my chicken noodle soup for her birthday dinner, so we all gathered around the table to grub on some good, stick-to-your-ribs food and then dove into the cupcakes and cake. After that, we settled in to watch Mama Mia and enjoyed some good girl talk. It was so warm outside that day that the girls were even able to go outside and play. It was a really good evening and I am blessed to have such good friends. Happy Birthday Allison!
