Ahhh...

If you haven't had a girl's (or boy's) weekend in awhile, stop reading this blog, pick up the phone and call a friend to schedule one. Now.

S and I started our girl's staycation weekend Friday evening. We had dinner in at S's home (her hubby and kids were away), with wine, beer and lots of uninterrupted talking. Saturday we slept in, worked out, had a wonderful lunch at Aladdin's Eatery and then headed out for some pedicures.

We then checked into our hotel, the Hilton Columbus which we chose solely for its wonderful proximity to the shopping haven that is Easton Town Center. I forgot how amazing it is to shop, shop, shop without having to return home to a sitter, or watching to make sure no one runs away, trashes the store, etc. I picked up these adorable starter chopsticks from Sur La Table:
and some organizing things from the Container Store.

Saturday night for dinner we went to Bon Vie Bistro and Wine Bar. We had some great food, good drinks and chocolate fondue for dessert. After dinner we rolled ourselves over to Anthropologie and LOFT for some more shopping. I found an adorable tankini and some capris.

Now I need to figure out what I am going to make for dinners this week, do some laundry and settle into our weekly routine. But the next girl's weekend plans are already beginning to take shape...

Have a sweet week,
SPC

My best friend and I have wanted to do that, but one of us has been pregnant, nursing, etc. for the last several years. Once Evan is weaned, we're going somewhere!

I think those are the same chopsticks they have on Jon & Kate Plus 8. I was thinking of getting some too!

It sounds like a wonderful weekend! I can't remember the last time I went shopping without the kids and without having to rush back home.

I need to get those chopsticks! My son loves to use the starter ones from restaurants. He calls them "teezers."

Ah, how that all sounds PERFECT!!!!! Even when I can't get away for a girl's weekend (although I have had my share) I still loving hearing about them. It's so easy to envision myself in the scenario.
