Friday night was everything I needed and then some. If you've been around this blog for awhile, you've heard me talk about my girl Lacey. We met in 7th grade and have been besties ever since. I was in her wedding, she was in mine. We got to be pregnant at the same time and share that entire experience, which I will cherish forever. Our babies were born 9 days apart so needless to say, we haven't had a ton of free time to get together just us.
It took us forever to find an evening we could get together for dinner but once it was on the calendar I was counting down for weeks! Lacey is a rockstar nurse and went back to work full-time after her little girl was born. While our lives veered in different directions after our babes were born, we have still remained closer than close. I love having a fellow mom to bounce thoughts and questions off of and I love having someone to go through this phase of life with.
We ended up meeting up at Bagger Dave's- have y'all been to one of those? It's new to our area, but I think they have locations in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. They're known for their burgers which were absolutely delicious. I went with their classic cheeseburger but it was so much more than your average burger. YUM. Lace got their Bacon BBQ Burger and raved about it as well. If you're in an area that has one- I highly recommend checking them out.
It was a hard first few months when T was born. Recovering from a csection and feeling like my life had been turned upside down. But Lacey was always just a text away. She (unfortunately) was another csection momma and we kept each other going in those chaotic newborn days. Now we can text about what food our baby is trying or what weird thing they did that day. I'm so grateful for a friend like her and that no matter the distance or the time, we still are closer than ever. What a true, true blessing. Love you, Laceface!
