    Where's the running? Shouldn't you have to "earn" the wine?

    Finally, why in the heck isn't your blog in my reader? I am swine. This too shall be corrected.

    That's so great that I will virtually invite myself. It's such a blessing to have amazing friends who will help you get through this bump in the road. Hang in there and enjoy your wine, snacks, and new books.

    I'm going on a girls-only weekend with my running girlfriends this weekend – they really do make the best of friends!

    Well, there's pretty much nothing in the world that wine, snacks and books can't cure, especially with good friends! What a lucky girl you are. :)

    You are so right..I have met some of the best friends in a running group I joined in 2007. Running friends with wine, snacks and books are even better friends for life.

    some of the best friends i have are from running / the blogging community! i might not see them on a really regular basis but i know i can count on them to do things like that.

    enjoy! it sounds like it'll be a blast

    A mix of books and running? Perfect friends!! I would bring "The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival."

    I bet that cheered you up so much. Have a great time at your surprise party! :^)

    Pei pa koa is pretty decent cough medicine (from herbal as I remembered), great non alcoholic medicine, some western cough medicine are more effective, but this is non drowsy.
