Getting out of Dodge

My and my girlfriends are running away this weekend. We're headed to Eastern Washington to spend the weekend at the lake. There will be sunshine, good chats, sunshine, a good book, sunshine, and fun times.

Part of me wants to call the whole thing off, crawl under a blanket on my sofa and not leave until Monday morning. The other, thankfully greater part, is really looking forward to a weekend full of distraction.

My bags are packed, the beach bag is filled with beach towels, battery powered iPod dock, my floppy hat, and the floaty cooler. Yes, I will be floating on the lake, with a cooler by my side. I will pause for a moment of silence while you're jealous of my cooler. (hey, a girls got to celebrate her few joys in life.)

Thank you again for all of your love and encouraging words.

See you next week!


  1. I <3 floaty coolers, I do I do! Have fun!

  2. Oh my, a floaty cooler?? You bet your ass I'm jealous. Would it be ridiculous for me to go out and buy one (just for hanging in my parents pool?) :) You deserve this getaway! I hope it will give you a break from everything :( Have fun!

  3. Have a good time! And yes, I am jelous of your floaty cooler and what will be inside.

  4. Good call! Have an amazing time!

  5. I'm glad to read that you're allowing yourself to enjoy life right now. And yes, I'm entirely jealous of the contents of your cooler, but we all know you'd trade that for what you had just a short time ago. I'm still so sorry for your loss. Losing a pregnancy is not something I've experienced, but tears swell up in my eyes every time I hear about someone going through it. Thinking about you. Hope you have a wonderful time! :)
