Girls Weekend Photos

Girls Weekend was such a great break from reality. Even my body cooperated by feeling better than it has of late. My three friends drove into Las Vegas and we spent the majority of the weekend sitting around chatting either over food or just in good company. Here we are in front of the famous Las Vegas sign that my great aunt designed.

We also treated ourselves to a little foot care. 
I love my bright pink toes!

The highlight had to be our meal at the Bouchon. We went family style. We had 3 entrees an appetizer and a side dish. All of which were delicious. This was our second round of desserts. First we each had a "Waite" less root beer float. Then these desserts came out. There are about 7 different flavors of cotton candy, profiteroles, creme caramel, creme brulee, Bouchon brownies, lemon tart, chocolate mouse, pot de creme, and I think all of our favorite for the night was the warm custard filled beignets. Oh and a package of homemade oreos and breakfast kit of granola, yogurt and fruit and a few other treats for the road. 

Seriously, talk about being totally spoiled. The yogurt was fabulous. I wish they sold it like that in the store. Thanks a million Chris!

It was so wonderful to catch up and swap stories with such great friends. It is amazing how women like us can each have different paths and yet, having a common foundation and being made of the same cloth, we find ourselves on the same page in so many ways even after so many years. This is something we will definitely have to do more often.  Miss you guys already!

Now I am home in my pjs with a nasty head cold that came on last night. I have been very blessed to not have been sick this pregnancy (well except the Fifth's disease scare in the early days). It is miserable to be sick and pregnant because you can't take drugs to help ease the sinus pain and pressure. So I am left to homeopathic remedies. 

Oh well, better now than 2 months from now when I am about to give birth right?

I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend with your girlfriends. I think every woman needs a good girlfriend. I'm now going to call a couple of mine and plan a much needed trip as well. Hope you feel better soon!

There is nothing like a trip with your girlfriends! My group of friends from High School try to get out once a month, and we are going out tonight. There is something so therapeutic to girl talk!
