Girl's Weekend!

This past weekend I was in Mineola Texas.

Me, my sweet friend Catherine, her sweet friend Lacie, and mom-in-law Rita all got together in Mineola for a Girl's only weekend!!! 

We stayed @ the Southern Comfort Retreat B&B!

It was so much fun. We were indulgent and lazy and all around relaxed. The southern comfort retreat is a specialty B&B which allows for hobbies. Miss Linda has special tables in one of the downstairs rooms, which are made for things like sewing, quilting aaannnddd Scrapbooking!!! It was awesome! We set all our stuff up and scrapped and snacked and watched chick flicks all weekend. I got well into our Christmas cards for this year, but I still haven't decided on a picture, so I couldn't really put anything together. So there are a million little pieces in cups & baggies waiting to be assembled once we get a picture picked out and in my hands. I also worked on my anniversary book, which is really starting to come along. I made a few thank you cards, some birthday cards... I got a lot done! 

Miss Linda is the best cook-- well, maybe not quite as good as Nana, but REALLY good. We ate until we needed to unbutton our pants (which, we wore pj's all weekend, thank goodness!). We had breakfast, brunch, an afternoon snack and dinner. She kept goodies in the fridge, pound cake on the counter, snacks in the craft room... it was delicious! The last morning, for brunch, Miss Linda made Sausage Bread (among many other things). Sausage Bread?!?! It was heavenly. Hello, Sausage and Bread?? Probably one of my favorite new foods. :) 

Foods Eaten:
Friday Dinner: Spaghetti & Meatballs, Corn on the Cob, Salad, Bread, Chocolate Cake.
Breakfast: Danish, Croissants, bagels, english muffins, fresh fruit
Saturday Brunch: Sausage Gravy, Biscuits, Fried Potatoes, Frittata, Fresh Fruit
Midday snack: Fresh choco-chip cookies, Black bean salsa, Guacamole & chips
Saturday Dinner: Beef Tips in wine sauce, Rice, Squash Casserole (no thanks.), salad, rolls, Peach Cobbler
Sunday Brunch: Breakfast casserole, Bacon, Cinnamon Rolls, Sausage Bread, Fresh Fruit, 

Movies Watched:
Devil Wears Prada
13 Going On 30
My Best Friend's Wedding
Pride & Prejudice
& 3 episodes of What Not To Wear

All in all, it was a wonderful weekend!!! We had such a good time- and I think I gained 5 pounds easily. We looked into booking another weekend- Miss Linda's booked until April! Of course, there will be a new little addition by then, (baby Strange!) so we'll have to find somewhere prior to baby's arrival. Either way, as soon as Cat & I got home, we wanted to go scrap shopping :)

On the other hand, I haven't run in over a week. I'm so disappointed! I ran last Saturday and had a sore knee for a few days and then a few days turned into a week. I'm hoping to get out today and tomorrow. I was easily doing 3 miles last weekend, which is great! I gotta get back into it though, before I wear out at 1/2 mile!!!!

Current Song: The Entire Maroon 5 About Jane CD. I love them.
