Weekend With the Girls

Daisy came down for a quick weekend visit, so Angela and I blocked out this past weekend to hang out with her. It was a good time to recharge (although not physically, since we stayed up till 5am talking) and reconnect with one another. Being so far apart from each other makes it hard to stay in touch sometimes because, at least in my case, I get so caught up in the day-to-day activities that I can't seem to find the time to make that quick phone call to say hello. I know it's a bad habit.

Saturday afternoon was spent shopping at Fashion Island. Then we stopped at Trader Joe's to stock up with food for the night, and had a quick dinner at the Spectrum. At the hotel, we set up camp, laid out the food and began what turned out to be an all-nighter: girlishness and serious talk. As I mentioned, we went to bed at 5am but I think we could have kept going if we had wanted to.

At ten the next morning, we struggled to get up in time to check out for the day. Then brunch and a quick stop at the strawberry farms by Angela's to buy and eat the sweetest strawberries I have ever tasted in my life. Yum! I couldn't buy too much because I didn't want them to sit and rot in the refrigerator, but I will probably have to ask Angela to bring some next week when they come up. It will make for a great dessert (coupled with the melting chocolate I bought at the same place) for the dinner/game night Marc and I have yet to set up.

We then took a quick trip to Target, which ended up being a long trip actually, since we ran late in getting Daisy to the airport to catch her flight back home. But all in all, it was a great weekend: I'm dog-tired from it, but I have a smile on my face.

Pics?

Unfortunately, there was only one pic, and it didn't turn out well, so I had to swear never to show it to anyone. :P

Why can't you show it to anyone? Are you referring to the picture you sent me? I thought it looked okay. Is it because of the way I looked? :p If it is me, I give you permission to show it to Jodee. :)
