Girl's Getaway...

I recently had the FABULOUS pleasure of spending 4 nights and 5 days with 5 of my high school friends in sunny Palm Springs!  Getting away together for a long weekend has become an annual event for us and this just happened to be our second trip to Palm Springs.  We had an amazing time! 

Our time consisted of TONS of girl talk about high school, college and our current lives.  We all have kids, so it was nice to hear other mom's stories of their little creatures :-).  We also enjoyed many dinners out on the town, as well some great snacking at the condo.  Of course we managed to sneak in a few cocktails here and there - Lacey makes a mean vodka/cranberry!!  And the mucho margaritas at Los Consuellos were yummy!!  Despite the 110 degree weather, we did get a lot of pool time in - no laying out - just pool time.  It was too hot to even walk on the pavement.  Everyone got their fair share of sun burns :-).  A few other things we snuck in were a couple movies, a workout and some shopping.  And how could I forget the night our air conditioning went out?  Two of the girl's got a hotel room and the rest of us fought through 90 degrees of heat and sweat, including trying to sleep outside on floaties!

Overall we had an amazing time catching up and relaxing.  We've already got the dates picked out for next year - let the countdown begin!!
