Four Sister's Trip to Michigan

I feel so blessed to have three sisters.
God knew I needed sisters.
Three best friends for life.
They are the only three people that I can trust to help me
in so many areas I am CLUELESS about.
Hard to believe, but there are several.....hundred.
(like if the coat I am wearing looks like my husbands....keep reading you will understand)

Me and my sisters have talked, on several occasions, about
what growing up with three other girls did for us.
We grew up learning how to share everything under the sun.
Clothes, shoes, food, beds, make-up, PARENTS!

We believe it's made us who we are today.
We learned how to be happy for each other.
And other women in our lives.

We have talked about our friends who don't have sisters and how
different it must have been for them.
To be the ONLY girl in the house.
So incredibly different.
No make-up or bras to share.
They got everything new and it was all theirs.
They never had to share any milestone that a girl has growing up.

We know we were given each other for a reason and feel so
lucky that we never had to hope to find true friends like some girls may.
We never had to search for a best friend.
We have always had each other.

And thankfully, being one of four girls has made us who we are today.
Four crazy girls who know how to share happy times and moments,
clothes, make-up and bras,
while being proud of each other's accomplishments.
I am truly thankful for all of the unique attributes that
each one of us bring into each other's lives.

And now, a few pics from our recent GIRL'S WEEKEND trip to Michigan to visit the youngest sister, Maggie.

(She was recently selected as one the the USA Softball's Top 50 players to watch this season.... you can read about it here! We are so proud of her!!)

Welcome Viefhaus sisters!


Haley and Maggie as we were getting ready to head out for our first night of fun.


Haley, Mags and Adie
Models.

Group shot!
We NEVER get these with Maggie gone so much!
Love this one.
Thankfully, Maggie asked me to take off "Steve's" coat prior to posing.
Too bad it wasn't Steve's, it was MINE.

On our way!
Love this one!
Lipstick?!
Look out!


Laughs.


Maggie and her friend Adam.

Secrets.

Leaving our first stop.
Craziness.


I could NOT walk in Maggie's heels.
After I insisted, while getting ready, that I liked "this kind of heel!"

A workout session the next morning....
we all did Jillian's Shred following this.
Then we ate Enchiladas.
Skinny.

Showing the evil heels I wore the night before.
So wobbly.


Getting ready for night #2.

Me and Ads

Me and Hales

Three out of four.

All four for another group shot.

We arrived at a real live dance club.
Hilarious, as I am 30 years old friends.

Twins shot!

The softball dance


Maggie may or may not have gotten on stage to perform Single Ladies.

After the club.
Quickie Burger I believe was the name?

Good thing Maggie let me borrow BLUEBERRY since we had to walk 3 miles in the FRIGID cold Michigan weather. With NO coat mind you!


Heading home on the plane.


Look who else loved BLUEBERRY!
When I got home Gracie had to try it on :)
Thanks for letting me borrow it Maggie and we will miss you!
Thank you so much for having all three of us up to visit you, and thus, forcing me to get on a plane, yet again, and endure a few more mini panic attacks.
It was well worth it!
See you soon!
