Ladies' Week

What do you get when you spend a week with your mom and grandma? You: do lots of sight-seeing and picture-taking. eat at a fancy restaurant with a great view of the city. [Side note: After seeing this man at the restaurant, I now know the #1 job I would be terrified to have!] visit some historical sites. walk around the gorgeous botanical gardens. make Husband’s day by surprising him with take-out from his favorite restaurant in the city. have a good excuse to play tourist in your own town. impress your grandma that you can actually cook. watch no less than 3 chick flick movies. inadvertently inspire Husband to choose studying over said chick flicks. watch Dancing with the Stars and discuss who should win (Shawn! or Melissa!). give them a tour of the base. look through recipe books together. shop! turn the TV to the Food Network and HGTV. eat ice cream. tell stories. laugh. teach your grandma how to work her brand new digital camera. sit in church on Mother’s Day and realize how lucky you are to spend it with your mom and grandma. And finally…. You miss them like crazy after they leave.

I love HGTV. Some days I'll just leave it on all day and try to catch new creative ideas!!

So glad you had a good time. Nothing beats time with da women folk!
