girls weekend

This last weekend was seriously chicken soup for the soul (ha! Remember those books?). It's amazing how a few days of relaxation, having wonderful adult conversation over delicious meals and just being without our kids really rejuvenated us. I flew to San Diego on Thursday night and Lela picked me up from the airport. I spent the night at her house and the next morning we had breakfast, hung out and I got to snuggle her sweet boys. I've missed them so much! Zane really wanted to come with us and snuck in the backseat of the car as we were leaving. When I turned around, he had buckled himself in and gave me this thumbs up. I died laughing. He's the best.
Lela and I went to Dry Bar that afternoon and got our hair done since Stephanie and Kristi couldn't join us until that evening for dinner. I love getting my hair washed and blown-out. It was so relaxing and fun to get pampered. I really loved how bouncy my hair felt.
Unfortunately, about 10 minutes after we left my hair looked horrible when the wind got its hands on it. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Dry Bar was really cute though - I just wish they wouldn't have been so conservative with the hairspray! I'm not afraid!
The next morning, we woke up, got massages and then headed to Con Pane for lunch. I had to laugh when I realized we had stayed there for over two hours, talking! We are really good at that. :) After lunch, we got pedicures and it was heavenly. I wish I could get a pedicure every day of my life.
Beautiful, pregnant mama, Kristi

We also ate at some of my favorite restaurants and it was fun to get all gussied up to "go out with the girls". P.S. Do you see recurring outfits from me? That's because I pretty much wore the same thing the whole time. I was obviously ill-prepared.

We went back to Dry Bar with Kristi and Stephanie the next morning since they missed out on the first time. It was fun again but I didn't like my hair half as much the second time. Kind of a disappointment but it was still really fun!
Lela and I like stripes. 
I think my ultimate favorite part of the whole weekend was one night when we got back to the hotel after dinner, all got in our pajamas and started watching YouTube videos on my iPad. We were all crammed on one queen size bed and I opened up Photobooth and we started taking some pictures. I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard. It was the "I-think-I'm-going-to-die-because-I-can't-breathe-in-between-all-this-laughing" kind of laughter, which is the best kind don't you think?
I love these girls so, so much. Thanks for the wonderful weekend! Let's do it again soon - like, next week?? ;)
