Girls Weekend - Let the Countdown Begin!

My dear friend Lisa is getting married in June and in honor of this great celebration 10 of us girls are going to the beach for her bachelorette weekend!

Ten girls, one beach house and unlimited laughs, sun, ocean water, sand and girl-time. Throw in a few cocktails and we've got a great weekend!

This will mark the first overnight trip away from my sweet girl, though. I can't believe she is 18 months and I haven't been away from her for even one night. A year ago I didn't think the time would ever come when I'd be ready to leave her over night.

I have to admit, I'm really glad I didn't leave her before I felt ready to do it. It would have been too much for me to handle a year ago. And now, now I am ready.

Ready to leave her in very capable, loving hands. Ready to relax. Ready to go enjoy some time away with some of my closest girl-friends, sleeping in late, sitting still for more than 5 minutes at a time, drinking a cold beer, maybe a cat nap ON THE BEACH! With no sippy cups, snack cups, nap schedules or diapers! No cleaning, laundry, cooking or yard work.

Three days of just me time. With 10 of the best girls ever. Almost unbelievable.

A little excited? Ya, think?
