When I woke up Sunday morning, we had a dusting of snow, so I left a little early "just in case". Well, the close I got to the airport, the worse it got. My flight was delayed and hour, then another hour and then another 30 minutes. Fortunately, I treated myself to a garnde carmel machiatto (I follow the Sunday rule) and ran into some friends who I got to hang with while we all waited for flights.
I finally arrived in Philly and was ecstatic to see the girls. We went straight to the mall (where else?) and headed directly to Build A Bear where Kaliegh picked out Pinky the Unicorn. I think everything you do with a 6 year old is great fun, although I am sure Julie would disagree with me. We ordered in that night and spent the entire next day shopping on Walnut Street. We had a fab lunch at Jones and then had to pick Kal up from school. She was quite perturbed that we hadn't bought her anything. She is a total diva and IN LOVE with clothes...Julie wonders where she gets it? Hmmm, have you looked in the mirror gorgeous girl? Anyway, we did a bit more shopping and then went home to cook dinner. I was in charge of the veggies, Julie cooked the chicken and together Kal and I made brownies and of course ate some batter. After Kaliegh went to bed that night, Julie and I dyed my hair...out of a box...and tried a darker color....ummmm...it was a disaster. I have one picture of my hair the orange color that it was and I will NOT post it. It was bad. Truly, bad!

Tuesday we picked Kaliegh up early to spend the day with us (so cute that she was scared that she had to go to the doctor and Julie didn't help matters by continuing to tease her about it). We had lunched and shopped some more. Tuesday night we ordered pizza and bowled on Wii for a while. Julie and I built a bookshelf (and yes it is still standing) and almost got it right. We did screw up one major part and had to find some nails to fix it. Anywho, I was so sad to leave on Wednesday morning. Julie is the greatest BFF ever and I miss her dearly every day. Kaliegh is so cute and growing into a fun and sassy little girl. I wish I could be more a part of her life, but for now, I just have fun visits to look forward to.
So I got home on Wednesday and felt awful. I finally came down form the adrenaline of being away and was officially sick. I went to the doctor first thing Thursday morning and she said my throat looked disgusting. A nice prescription for some strong antibiotics and i was home on the couch. By Saturday I told Brett we had to get out, so we mad reservations at a new restaurant right by out house, Morgan's Charhouse. What a fab night! The food was mouth watering and the wine was good too. We were there for 2 1/2 hours ( Brett makes fun of my love of long drawn out dinners) and then came home and played Wii bowling and tennis. I am embarrassed to admit that I was absolutely sore the next day. We relaxed on Sunday and woke up Monday morning to a blanket of snow ( see last pot) and spring break was over. I was not dreading coming back to work like I usually do so that was good. I think it was because I was able to relax so much over break and spent time with a few of the wonderful people in my life.
And in case you were wondering, I went to the salon on Staurday morning and three and a half hours later left with normal colored hair. actually it is a lot darker than usual...
