My First Ever Girls' Weekend

So, I was all prepared to do a post for all of you regarding my recent Girls' Weekend to Atlanta with Joy...

but she beat me to it. ;)

Which is perfect, because she very succinctly described our 48 hour trip  instead of writing a million words on the topic as I might have done. (So I'm a little wordy....)

One thing she discussed in her post was how we talked and talked and talked. And talked. And then talked some more.

What she failed to mention is that we both lost our voices from talking so much. Ha! But I'm okay with that because it was much needed.

We started out on our little road trip thinking of all the rest & sleep we were going to get. We were right about half of that. We didn't sleep very much....staying up until almost 3am and 4am each night. Yep...talking. But we DID rest. We rested our minds, we renewed our energy for heading back home, and apparently, we both needed it. What a blessing this trip was for refreshing me and also rekindling a friendship from long ago!

Even better, I haven't laughed that hard in a very long time. :) Thank you, Joy, for your humor and blatant  honesty regarding so many things we discussed. I will never forget it and hope to do another one in the future.

The first picture above shows us after our dinner at Bistro Niko which was WONDERFUL. I don't think we spoke much during the first 10 minutes of our dinner because we were too busy Mmming and Aaahing over how amazing it was. (Can you see how tired we are on that first evening?)

We enjoyed one afternoon at the spa, which was totally needed. I could have stayed there all day, but I'm sure I would have turned into a prune sitting in that whirlpool with a smoothie the whole time. :)

And, oh my goodness, I almost forgot! She had the honor of taking me on my very first trip to IKEA. It was even more wonderful than I imagined and I may have found the answer to the bookshelf vs. builtin argument for our study/office. (Hallelujah!)

Anyway, head on over to Joy's blog (Cobblestone Rue) and read her take on the weekend. She gave all the details as to where we stayed, the restaurants we enjoyed, and the spa we used along with links to check each one out. I love how she shared the weekend that we spent realizing who we truly are underneath being wives and mothers and much more.

Now it's time to plan a big one. :)

So glad you and Joy had a wonderful time! Those girl trips are so fun and much needed. Sometimes mama just needs to getaway!! It's been too long since I've done that and I'm feeling it big time! Oh, and I'm glad you liked IKEA! I've never been YET and can't wait to experience the joys of it!!
