Works for me Wednesday

It's Work For Me Wednesday......my tip today is pretty easy. I have a great group of friends.....there are 18 couples.....yes you heard me right. We love one another and would do anything for each other. But with this many of us its hard to get together....so we do get together once a month......either at ones house or we go eat dinner ...but we get together faithfully once a month. We also plan a trip together without our kids once a year......we need these bonds of friendship and adult conversations.....we are all in the same Sunday School together...this is where we met....I truly believe God put us all together....we have such a great time together.....friends......everyone needs them!

For more Works for me Wednesday....go see Shannon @ Rocks in my Dryer.

I am so envious LOL

18 couples. We're only friends with about 5 sets and we battle to get everyone together more than once every 4 months!

how do you manage differing schedules?

The monthly get togethers are a great idea, Jen. Once everyone starts having kids and getting caught up in all that goes with it, it's too easy to forget that you need to make an effort to stay in touch with other adults.

You're very lucky to have such a large group of friends. I imagine you all have a great time together.

Oronzo and I have a pretty extensive group of friends in our city as well. We've known them all for over 10 years now and we've watched as we've all moved from young professional singles to not-as-young married couples starting families. We need to be better about getting everyone together at least once a month! Good for you!

Okay, I wanted to be sure to let you know that I've posted about my 2nd Edition of my Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style recipe exchange!

I hope you can join me next Friday. And, would you mind helping me to spread the word by publishing a post about my holiday recipe exchange before then? I’d sure appreciate it! I have the button in my most recent post.

Thanks so much, Jen!

I am so jealous! Of all of you! I would love to have 1 couple to get together with. You all are truly blessed!

We have a group of friends like this! It is so wonderful to have the blessing of close, close relationships. We get together every Sunday!

Thanks for sharing this great idea. It's hard at times to remember to schedule things for your own fulfillment when you are so busy with kids.
