A fun weekend with some fun gals!

Back before Christmas some friends and I blocked off a 'girls weekend'. Thankfully we had no weather issues and we were able to make the trek to the cities and we had a GREAT time. Angie and Robyn met at my house and together the 3 of us went to Siobhan's...then on Saturday morning we got up and headed to the cities where we shopped for a couple days, stayed at a hotel, enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and just overall had a fun weekend with some great conversations...and of course some good deals! :)

We had so much we talked about making this a bi-annual event rather than just annual. :)

Siobhan and I -- we've realized we have very few pics together, so we've been trying to make a point of taking pics when we see each other. :)

Angie & Robyn -- they have been friends since they were little...Siobhan and Angie met in college, I met Angie through Siobhan and we all met Robyn through Angie. Are you confused yet?!

Going out to eat...the only time we were able to get a shot of all 4 of us together.

Ok, so when you shop together with people that have similar tastes...well, it's inevitable that you may end up with some similar purchases. Siobhan and I each found a great coat that was 80% off and so we each got one in a different color. :)

Robyn and I each got these vests for a deal at $9

There were other similar purchases, but this is all I got a picture of...since none of us live near each other or see each other often, buying the same things isn't an issue. :)

We had a great time, but it's always nice to come home too...especially when you come home to find out that you were definitely missed. I think moms need to get away once in a while so that when you come home YOU can be the one with the running welcome and bombarded with hugs! :)

So glad for the fun time you girls had - such lovely pics of such lovely women. Glad you got to shop without kiddos - what a treat for you! I agree, all Moms need a chance to come into the "hero's welcome" as we call it in our house. It's such a boost isn't it? : )
