This weekend I went on a girl's weekend to Fargo with 10 girlfriends from church. It was a weekend full of shopping, eating, hot-tubbing...did I mention shopping, eating and hot-tubbing?? Just checking. It was an equation for F!U!N!
This is an annual girl's weekend that I have never been able to go on before. I've either been enduring 'morning sickness', been nursing, or Les has been working. And then last year was one of my cousin's weddings that I did not want to miss. So this year -- FINALLY -- it worked for me to go and I was p-u-m-p-e-d!
And even though there were 11 girls sharing 2 hotel rooms (that's right -- TWO -- which means only two bathrooms!!), things went really smoothly.
Of course one of my highlights was dining at the scrumptiously delicious Mexican restaurant, Paradiso. Here is a picture of my amazing meal. Mmmmmmmm.........tacos!! Of course the unlimited chips & salsa that were on the tables before the meals came prevented me from finishing my large plate of food...oh well!
And of course there was the shopping. Ah...the shopping! I tell you, my legs were t-i-r-e-d and oh-so-sore but it was so worth it. I got some really great deals -- and of course I have pictures of said great deals. Behold -- my seven new tops and my new pair of shoes!!
And we can't forget my new purse. I know, I know...I said I found the perfect bag after Christmas. But what can I say -- it's an addiction! This one is 'perfect' for spring (which I have to believe is right around the corner) and it's slightly bigger than the previous one, but not too big where I'll be collecting too much miscellaneous hodge-podge. Anyway, isn't it pretty?
So all in all it was a fabulous weekend away, and a great temporary escape from the real world. Amazing though how it already feels like I was never gone. Sigh...I'm ready for next year already. Maybe I should do a new countdown ticker at the top...363 days away...
