Girlfriends

I had this awesome post for last Thursday all ready to go. It was about how much I was looking forward to Girlie Weekend, and cute stories about my kids, and how Monkey was doing about me going on vacation (not so good), and so on. And it was going to include these pictures:


Aren’t they cute?

But due to forgetting to email it to myself, and a half day of work, a pedicure, and a bikini wax on Thursday, and issues WordPress has with Safari, and not getting home until 3 p.m., and not being completely packed, and needing to get to the airport — well, it just didn’t get here. Too bad, because it was a good post.

But then I went away for 3 nights and 3 days, without children and a spouse.

There was some of this:

And plenty of this:

And this was nice:

And we got some horses at Brigadoon (the horses were important):

And Whack-A-Mole!:

And this was the view from the hotel, as it is every year at Girlie Weekend:

And we laughed a lot, and shopped a lot, and had a gorgeous meal at lupo di mare, and I was clearly told what was “blog-able”, and I cannot thank these three enough for making it a great weekend.

I have much more to say about all of this, but it is Vacation Recovery Day, and I have tons of laundry to do, and I’m taking Monkey to the dermatologist in about an hour. So I gotta scoot.

Girlie Weekend rocked. Thanks, A, L & J. You guys are three of the best. (We missed a number of attendees, among them Misfit Hausfrau, who at least we managed to have dinner with on Thursday.)

Can’t wait until next year.

  1. Those top pics ARE cute!

    It looks like you had a great time. I love that you’ve managed to carve out a yearly break like that. I might have to try to do it myself!

  2. I have to admit that I got teary-eyed when I saw the photos of what I missed. It simply isn’t enough that I only got to spend Thursday evening with you guys. Chalk that up to my being a glass half-empty kind of gall.

  4. BBM: You should do it! Get your girlfriends together, and make it happen. It is so important.

    MH: We missed you. Soon, you’ll be able to come too!

    Hope: I know; I thought a lot about that trip. It was my first trip to Rehobeth. And dogfish head tastes better there than anywhere else!

    Thanks for the comments, ladies,

  6. I’m pretty sure I’m the only woman who has never had a Girls’ Time Out in her entire life.
