A much needed get away!

This past weekend my mom and I took Friday off and just left!

We didn't know where we were going or what we would do when we got there.

I dropped Kelli off at school Friday morning and then headed to my mom's house.

I have to say that I needed that so bad. We get caught up in the little things that happen day to day that we forget about the big things in life.

Mom and I ended up heading to Osage Beach. They have an outlet mall down there that is to die for!

We had so much fun this weekend. We laughed, we joked, we had serious conversations and then we laughed some more.

I have the best mom in the world. I look at other mom's and think if they were my mom would they have stood by me and put up with my past crap. I have to say that I don't think any other mother would have put up with me. But my mom has been by my side the whole way and loves me just as much as the day I was born. I love that woman!

We took lots of pictures, so here are a few.

This is my mom and I at the beginning of our trip.
 Mom doubted my directions...I just want to say that I was right.
 This is at Bagnell Dam.
 Mom and I.
 Look my mommas so strong she is holding up a thingy mcthing. (I don't know what that is)
 This was a sign in our hotel room.
 We obviously don't follow the rules to well....and we didn't pay the $25. (Shhhhh don't tell anyone)

We had a blast. Actually I have to tell you guys that we laughed so much that mom actually lost her voice. Monday and today her poor little voice is gone. But it was so worth it :)

I love you momma!
