Catching Up, Part One

People keep giving me gentle reminders that I haven’t posted photos in… well… forever.  Not to mention, I haven’t written a single thing about all the fun I’ve had recently so here it goes.  Get comfy.

April 2010 – Yes, I’m THAT far behind.

I’ve done girls trips before but never one that was so much fun.  So we made the trip to Atlanta, Marianne and I flying in and Ali serving as our chauffeur.  We didn’t have a plan at all, just a hotel and flights so we got there and realized that we didn’t even really need a plan.  As funny as it sounds (and typical, if you know me) we spent a majority of the weekend at a small Mexican restaurant down the street from our hotel.  Yes, we saw the sights.  Yes, we did some shopping.  And yes, we had a margarita… and chips… and some nachos.  We realized once we got there that all we wanted to do was sit and enjoy each others company, catching up, talking, sharing stories and things that had been going on in our lives.  It’s rare to find friends who you can just sit around with and not have anything to do but honestly wish for nothing more.  And I’ve found those friends.  I guess since we spent so much time at that Mexican restaurant, we really didn’t take many pictures, but here is the weekend in pictures:

Ali decided to conquer the air conditioner’s tendency to make our room frigid arctic cold and in doing so, centered on that Gone With The Wind dress-out-of-draperies thing.  Didn’t work that well for her.

We scored a free ride in a limo, but by the time we actually got out the door of the hotel everything was closed, so the driver recommended a little diner… it was around the corner.  We were only in the limo for maybe 25 seconds.  But hey, it was long enough to take a photo.

We laughed.  A lot.

So that was the Girls Trip, 2010.  More catching up soon.
