Girls Just Want to Have Peace and Quiet

I'm going away this weekend with my girlfriends. We're going to this super exotic place - you may have heard of it.

Des Moines.

I prefer to say it with a French accent, so it sounds more impressive. Deh-Mwahn. Or something. It's been a long time since I took French.

Speaking of French, I almost minored in it in college. Except I got intimidated by how well my classmates spoke it. I thought - whoa. I can't keep up with that. They speak so bien, or whatever. Then, on almost the last day of class, I realized that my fluent classmates were Hispanic and had actually been speaking mostly Spanish when I though they were speaking French. So, in all fairness, I probably wouldnt have been that great at French anyways.

C'est la vie.

Anyway, back to Day-Mwah. Nes.

I am sooooo flipping excited. The past few weeks have just been crazy at work (as evidenced by my lack of blogging and visiting other blogs), the kids are still acting like demon robot zombies, and frankly, I just need a big glass of wine. And some shopping. And some girl talk. And then maybe another glass of wine. Oh, and a nice dinner! Where I don't have to cut up anyone's food!

I cannot wait.

That sounds like so much fun. I know you are going to have a great time.
My two boys have been demon robot zombies lately. I hope they get out of this phase soon, or they are going to make me crazy.

Have a great time!
Girl's weekends are the best!
I think the long winter has driven the children crazy, I am looking forward to a long spring and summer.

Have a fun weekend! Drink a glass of wine for me :)

Don't beat yourself up... French, Spanish and Italian sound similar to me, too!

I'm so with you! I hope you have a wonderful time!
I cannot wait for the mini-vacation I'm taking with my hubby next month! We're lucky enough to be Vegas locals so we get to stay at the Luxor without having to worry about transportation expenses. :)
Btw, I hope you'll come on over to my site today and enter to win a $10 Subway card! Thanks!
