Girls Weekend

I'm back from an extended girls weekend with Maggie (a friend from work) to visit friends in New Jersey (Brandy, Jack and Baby the cat). We had a blast!! It is always nice to get together with friends.

Our first night there we made dinner and chocolate dessert calzones. I was introduced to Nutella. Yummy!!

Saturday was spent at the spa followed by shopping and dinner at the Melting Pot. We had a GREAT dinner with the best martini (a Love Martini) I have ever had. This picture was taken in the CVS next to the Melting Pot after a few too many Love Martini's.

We rounding out our weekend with a little road trip to D.C. for the Cherry Blossom Festival. We couldn't have asked for better weather. In fact it was nicer in D.C. then here in Kansas (who would have guessed). We also visited the White House, Lincoln Memorial, the U.S. Capitol Building, Thomas Jefferson Memorial, and Washington Monument.

On our way back to Jack and Brandy's house we stopped in Baltimore for dinner and to see Charm City Cakes. (Food Network show Ace of Cakes) YEA!!! We didn't get to see Duff or anyone else but it was fun just being there. Toby was super jealous.

Ohhh so fun! I had to enlarge the photos to see if that was Brandy from the office! How cool! I didn't know you guys kept in touch. I hope she is doing well. I'd love an update on her some time. Looks like a fun weekend!
