Girl's Get-Away

{I planned a girl's getaway for some of my friends. There were 8 of us that went and spent the night at my parents house in Woodland Hills. We had so much fun. We sat in the hot tub (yes, 8 of us and we lost a bit of water over the edge because of it) and mostly just stayed up and talked. Half of us made it 'til 4 a.m. while the rest were done by 1 or 2. There is something about spending time away from spouse and kids that re-energizes you. I got home the next day and I was so excited to play with the kids and get things done. I felt like a better person having spent time away from them. I appreciated them more and had more patience. And I love having girlfriends. They relate to you and understand you and support you. **Ahhhhh** It was a win win for both Pat and I. He took the kids to his mom's house and spent the night there. I can't wait to do it again. My parents were so cute about letting us come there. They have the nicest house with such an incredible view, it feels like you're at a ski resort. So, here's to a new year and great friends. Ya Ya!}

Thanks again!!!! Seriously, I can't stop talking about it - I keep saying "JaNece's parents this...Janeces parents that..." I think it's driving my family nuts, but that's how much fun it was! And surprisingly, I didn't feel too tired! Must have been all that estrogen in the air! :)

That is the cutest idea! I love it! Mom and dad's is like a resort - especially if you're there without kids!

What cute friends you have!
