totally recharged

Hello!!  I hope you are all having a fabulous week!!  I am back from my girls trip and it was so amazing.  Just what I needed.  I feel recharged and focused and full of inspiration to tackle some big projects.

We went to Palm Springs for 4 days and had such a blast laying by the pool, shopping, laughing, eating and just relaxing.  It was perfection.  We stayed here.  I would completely recommend this resort and definitely plan on taking Mark and the kids back at some point this summer.  It was so family friendly and I know the kids would have a blast.  There is also a lazy river, water park, top notch spa, great restaurant and golf course on the property.  Plus, there are shops, restaurants and a movie theater right across the street, so we really didn't need the car once we got there, which was really nice. 

Speaking of a movies, it has been ages since I have seen anything but an animated movie in the theater, but while we were there we saw Bridesmaids and it is seriously the funniest movie I have ever seen.  Ever.  I laughed out loud for the entire 2 hours.  And then we recited all the jokes to each other on the walk back to the hotel.  Seriously, take your best friend and see that movie.  I would totally see it a second time.

I took my big camera and camera bag with the intention of taking lots of photos, but I never even took it out of the bag.  I was just too lazy to bust it out.  The only 2 photos I have are straight from the phone, but I'll share them anyhow.

{We took this about 5 minutes after we checked in.  Can you tell how thrilled we are?  There are not many people aside from Mark that I could spend 4 days with.  But, Betsy is definitely one of them.  We have been friends for...um, forever.}

{Lounging by the pool.  Happy as a clam.} 

This was my first girls trip since Mark and I got married and it definitely won't be the last!!  We had so much fun that we've already started talking about all the other places we want to go!  Palm Beach, San Francisco, Cape Cod, the list goes on and on!!  Do you take trips with your girlfriends?  What's the best one you've ever taken?
