Where have I been? Well, I’ll tell you. I was gone for 10 days. 10 days!! That’s like, totally unheard of in the World According to Mama. I was on a business trip with the Golfer for about 5 days and then we went home to Oklahoma (yes, I still call it “home” even though I am a Californian now.) I’ll write more about the second leg of the trip later. For now, let’s just focus on the “business trip.”
Yes, here we are eating a fabulous dinner and drinking wine with my sweet brother- and sister-in-law. You’ve gotta love a business trip that involves drinking lots and lots of red wine by the fire. That’s right, after we left this table we moved outside to the fire pit where they set us up with blankets and large jars filled with marshmellows, chocolate and graham crackers. I’m getting a little excited just thinking about it. And to quote my brother-in-law, “I’ll have another Bud Light.”
And when I wasn’t busy eating and drinking, I was out shopping with these lovely ladies, fellow Golfer wives, Kim, Tina and Ashley. We hit Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly sale, proudly coming home with bags filled with stuff that was, like, practically free! (If not free, then pretty darn near close.)
And when we weren’t shopping, we were at the spa…a lot…enjoying manicures and pedicures and massages and things that mamas like us never, ever get to enjoy. And we took naps and read books and sat in hot tubs and prayed to God that we would never, ever have to leave this magnificent place.
And, oh yeah, we watched some really good golf too when we weren’t, ya know, doing other things. Because after all, it was the reason that we were all there in the first place.
