It’s all About the G65 Ladies

Foodie, Friends, Restaurants No Comments »

I was prompted today to start blogging again. So here I go.

It’s been kind of a tough year for me. Hasn’t gone exactly the way I thought it would or should. However, this wonderful circle of girlfriends have blessed my life and has made dealing with life so much easier.

Today we all met for lunch. Again, I feel so very blessed, as we have managed to pull off meeting for lunch about once a month since the first of the year. This is quite a feat as we all have such hectic schedules and demands. Today it was Lin, Amy, Dana and Gayla. Dana brought her son, Kasson, and her new baby girl, Kinsley. What wonderful children. Kasson has impeccable manners, and “Baby Kinsley” is just an absolute doll.

We met at Mi Chula’s in Southlake. Turns out I could have walked there faster than it took me to drive. Oh well. Definitely hoofing it next time. Very tasty Mexican food at this place. I had the chicken flauta platter. Yum!

It was super catching up with everyone. These women are just so positive and gracious. I am so very glad we’ve become such good friends.

Oh? What’s “G65?” We all met through an employee-only social network. G65 is actually Group 65 as it was the 65th group to be formed within the network. We all kinda came together and ended up forming the G65 Ladies Auxiliary. The rest, as they say, is history. You can learn about this cool application for your company by visiting I highly recommend it! If you decide it’s an app you want to learn more about, tell ’em Donna sent you! Yah… that was a shameless plug, but I had to do it.

It’s all About Her

Friends No Comments »

Recently a friend’s barn was broken into and wiped out-saddles, bridles, harness, tools, and lots more. Thieves used her own trailer to take what they wanted, including the trailer. However this post is not about the loss of goods. It’s about a comment my friend made while discussing her plight. She was on her way out the door in search of her stolen items when she said this was all about her! Now here’s the irony… this same friend is the one who talked me into starting this blog in the first place. I knew this was one time I could smart off and remind my friend that it is not about her, but it is really about me. Actually… I think she was right… it is all about her. At least for today.

It *IS* all About Friends

What an amazing day!

I heard from my girlfriend Jennifer today. Her new life is settling down nicely after parting ways with her husband. We must have talked for an hour. I was glad she called. Told me she had been thinking about me and wondered if I was OK. So she called. Wow. I’m still floating… I’m glad we’re friends. Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes it’s about my friend

Friends No Comments »

I have this friend. She’ll even admit were friends. I tell her she’s sweet, she tells me otherwise. I don’t believe her. She is sweet, I don’t care what she says. The amazing part about this relationship, is we met years ago when, compared to today, the Internet was still an infant. We met through an e-mail list that delivers info daily to us. Anyway, I blurted out not too long ago that I couldn’t believe we had known each other for over 10 years. Her response was classic… “Oh, you’re still here? I didn’t run you off?” We both laughed. Now we’re pretty tight. We’ve only met face-to-face once. It was great. I wished we lived closer. Anyway, this is my shameless plug for my friend. She does absolutely AWESOME Web work. And what’s really tops is her ability to provide you with a kick-ass Web site that YOU can maintain without even knowing HTML. She simply rocks… anyway… if you need a Web site, look her up… She even helped me get this blog up and running. She’s the best. Really.

See? It’s not always about me! Sometime it’s about my friends.

Clearly, I was mistaken

Just when you thought it was all about me, it isn’t. And I quote,

“Gosh, Donna, I am soooooo upset. Because I was absolutely dead certain that it was all about meeeeeee!

You crack me up.”
