Oh man, I'm still smiling. What an incredible weekend with some amazing women. We've known each other since 2003 or so, and even though we no longer work together we still get together every other month to bask in some good girlfriend glow. And we always have fun. This Napa trip was no exception. We were all there to celebrate our girlfriend Junebug's milestone birthday (referring to the actual number is called "using the f-word" and is strictly forbidden). Wheee! You know which foot is mine, right? If I could live at the spa I would. Ahhhh. And dang, those celery robes are amazingly flattering to all skin tones: This courtyard house was insane! Can you believe I actually ditched the flip flops for a night?: I coveted Claire's shoes really bad, so I stole them and wore them around with my PJs: This was my foodie contribution. Watermelon and goat cheese drizzled with olive oil: Setting up the girlsfriends' shot and testing the remote: The whole gang. Love them. (Hey the remote worked, can you see it hiding in my hand?) The full set of pictures is here: thumbnails, details, slideshow. And here's what TubaDad's usually pristine car looked like after a weekend with the twinados. The entire car looked like this. I nearly died laughing after seeing what they'd done to his automobile. He just stared at me when I asked if he'd had time to take any pictures of the girls or put up a blog post while I was gone. Oh well, maybe next time. Heh. By the way, this was the first time I've been away from the girls for this long. It was weird... not bad at all, just weird. I love Ro and Ree to pieces, everyone knows that, but driving in the car listening to complete silence was pure bliss. And then, when I came home, they raced toward me screaming "Mamaaaaaaaaaaa!!!" and tackled me and hugged the stuffing out of me. That was really nice too.
