I may shop tomorrow.....

My hubby and I went away for the weekend.  We were supposed to hang out with our dear friends Jon and Tiffany W. but, alas, a blizzard and highway closure prevented us from reaching them in Tahoe!  We missed you guys but hope you had fun.

Our bags were already packed so we just picked a city and headed off to our new location.  We found a good deal on priceline ($45 a night at the Courtyard by Marriott in Pleasanton, CA).

We spent the rainy weekend reading books to our children, playing in the jacuzzi, eating at many of the local restaurants and watching our little girls scream and play at the indoor playground in the Stoneridge Mall.

We also went shopping for all of the things that we are going to need this Spring/Summer (shoes for the girls, shoes for us, clothes for Savannah, housewares for a friend, etc).  It was an enjoyable weekend although it flew by way too fast.  I was really hoping for some time with the hubby alone this weekend but we were just so exhausted by all of the work that we have had to do over the last two months that we were fast asleep soon after the girls went to bed.  Sigh.  Here's hoping that we can spend some time together soon.  My hubby has been super busy at work and things will not slow down for him until the beginning of May.  We are definitely going on vacation as soon as he is finished so that we can spend some quality time together!

Hope some of you were able to get out this weekend for a little shopping at Rite-Aid!  I'm hoping to go shopping tomorrow but we'll see.  I'm staring at laundry and a desk full of administrative work so it's possible that I'll just skip it this week.  It's not a great week at Rite-Aid for me but there is one good deal that I want to snag tomorrow.


  1. Sorry to hear you missed playing in the snow but glad you still got away for the weekend. Missed you at the family BD party!!

  2. Hi Irmie! Thank you for your call today. I headed up to Woodland today to see Jason and to let the girls play outside; it was such a beautiful day! Hope Jevon's b-day was enjoyable. We would have loved to have been there!

    Thank you again for our chat this week; I was so encouraged after we hung up. :) Love you!
