Time to Get Away

As I mentioned in my post last week, one of the ways that the JA and I keep the romance alive in busy times is to have individual ‘us’ times. While this weekend wasn’t exactly ‘me’ time, it was the perfect treat to celebrate the end of the school year.

My three college girlfriends and I have tried to get a girls-only weekend on the books since, well, graduation. Between full-time jobs, weddings, and kids, it got pushed off again and again. Sure, we saw each other, but this weekend, we finally got our getaway.

Terrible Trio

WV June 2014

Friday afternoon, we packed into our respective cars and made our way to Canaan Valley, WV. Food was shared, talking was done, and we hit the hay around 10p. (Don’t be too jealous.)

Saturday morning, we had breakfast at Amelia’s and then headed back to the condo to chill and relax. After a few hours (and some leftover pizza), we gussied ourselves up and went to dinner. The drive through Canaan Valley State Park was gorgeous and filled with wildlife. The view from the resort dining room wasn’t so bad, either.

Sunday, we returned to Amelia’s for breakfast before cleaning up and heading home. I have to admit, it was good to be back with my boys – even if it meant I spent most of the night doing laundry and prepping for this week.

What’s your ideal getaway? What do you dread most upon returning home?

Eat It

Some days, some people, just make you want to stuff your face.

Yesterday was one of those days. Thank goodness I had dinner planned with some of my favorite school moms. We went to Mimi’s Cafe and I got the parmesan crusted chicken. It came in a massive portion, half of which I took home.

only half!

Not only was the food delicious, but it was great to catch up with these lovely women and hear about their lives [and almost just as important, the lives of their sons :)]
As we approach the wedding, I feel like I’m drifting. Maybe it’s because I’m not on a schedule this week, maybe it’s because I missed the last Book Club, maybe it’s because I haven’t really seen/ seriously chatted with my go-to-girls in a while.

Therefore, outside of Book Club, girlfriend’s making a permanent ‘to do’ of getting together/having a seriously long conversation with one of these girls each month. (Bridal stuff doesn’t count.) Life’s jsut not the same with a regular appearance by some of these gals!

we love dancing

We smile for Eat N Park cookies!
