Weekend Getaway

Mr. Chick and I escaped to the beautiful Oregon coast this weekend. Yay! My parents watched the kids for us. Mr. Chick had a work event and I was able to tag-along. While he was sitting in some boring meetings, I was on my own. For a WHOLE DAY. To myself! I went to the workout room at the resort and had a leisurely, but solid, workout. Then I gave myself a mini-pedicure and took a hot shower. I had brunch. In a restaurant! Alone! Just me and my book! It was heaven. I sipped my coffee, ate a delicious meal I did not have to cook or clean up from, and read my book in peace.

Then I took a nap. In the middle of the day! For no other reason than I could! Ahhh...!! Followed by a visit to the outlet mall. Where I found two cute t-shirts for summer on deep discount. It was like the gods were smiling on me. After the nice dinner that evening with the rest of his firm, Mr. Chick and I soaked a bit in the spa and then went back to our room to celebrate our anniversary.

Which isn't until the 9th, but we celebrated this weekend anyway. Might as well piggy-back the events. 9 years married. I love him more now than I did then. I didn't think that was possible. It is.

My time was my own.

My agenda was my own.

I enjoyed my solitude and time to myself. I don't get enough of that.

I enjoyed some alone time with Mr. Chick. I slept horribly, but felt rested anyway.

I wasn't quite ready to come. And today, with my house a mess, suitcases to unpack, and whiny kids, I wish I hadn't.

Getting a change of scenery can do wonders for a person. It did for me.

Hope your weekend was wonderful as well.

It sounded wonderful. Happy Anniversary.

That sounds like THE perfect weekend. I love how you said that you took a nap for no other reason than you could! You are right. Everyone does need a weekend like that once in a while. I need one right now! Happy 9th anniversary!!!
Dear MJ,
I have learned that there was a recall on the agent cool blue mouth rinse. I know your children use it, and I think it is imporant for your loyal readers to have more information.
I felt it vital to put the info. in your most recent post, ans some may not read back to the old post promoting it.
Be safe!
