CONFESSIONS

I am back!

I never told you I was leaving did I?

I had such a crazy week last week that I might have forgotten to mention that I was going away.

To the beach.

Sans kids.

With eight girlfriends.

To scrapbook.

And eat.

And laugh.

Did I mention eat, laugh, or scrapbook?

I almost cancelled at the last minute.

I was exhausted and not feeling up to it.

My husband convinced me I should go.

Thanks honey.

It was exactly what I needed.

I read 100 pages in my new book.

I completed 15 scrapbook pages. ( Long story. I left most of my photos home...ugh!)

I slept past 9:30 two mornings.

I took a shower and didn't get out until I wanted to.

I even shaved my legs and conditioned my hair. Twice.

It is the little things friends.

I only helped cook one meal.

I cleaned up the kitchen once.

I watched one of my favorite movies, "The Notebook". ( Two words: Ryan Gosling)

I didn't do laundry.

I didn't run kids to practices.

I didn't have to break up any arguments.

It was perfect.

Perfect weather, friends, and food.

A perfect weekend.

So very jealous!

So glad to hear you got some "me" time. You deserve it my friend!

Happy that's not the case.
