A great weekend...

...with an even better man.

It's 9:00am on Tuesday and my eyes are so heavy I feel like I have 2 dumbbells hanging from my eyelashes. I've been up since 6:30am, against my wishes of course but breakfast has to be made, dogs need to go out and kiddo's need to be dressed and rushed off to school.

The Hubs and I returned from our 1-1/2 day getaway yesterday around 3:00pm. I was exhausted and so was he but I think all and all we had a good time. The photo above is from our trip along the La Mesa Golf Course.

What you can't see (and thank your lucky star's for it), is the monkey suit I had to wear in order to even be allowed on the cart! Not even to play, just to ride. I came dressed in jeans and a nicer shirt with comfy shoes. And much to our surprise, you can't wear denim on the greens.

So into the Pro Shop we go. I come out looking like a wannabe pro golfer with zero style and almost the same skill. It was Annika brand so I'm sure you can already guess the price. Ridiculous! And I looked like an idiot.

So we get to hole 1 after hitting a few balls on the driving range and I'm ready to kick some golfer butt. However, this is the first time I ever actually had to aim for something and that didn't go so well.

By hole 8 I had lost 2 0r 3 balls, did a lot of throwing rather then swinging, a bit of cussing and some jumping up in down when I actually HIT the ball. I had 2 blisters on my hand, my blue plaid golf capri's were riding up somewhere they shouldn't have been and I was getting cold. "I quit" I said to my husband.

Fast Forward

That evening we went to the casino and had dinner and set off to win some money. We did pretty well and walked away having a good time and having a few more bucks then we did when we entered.

All and all, I enjoyed the alone time the hubs and I were able to share. It was nice to remember us as one again. When you have so much going on in your life (as we do), and most couples with kid's do, it's nice to go back to where it all started.

Sorry there aren't more photo's. I actually took our camera but it never left my bag. This one was captured with our phone. One of the few photo's we took this past weekend.

Love the pic. Happy to hear everything went well except for the outfit. Please let us see it. It can't be that bad. Glad to hear that you had a great time.

My dust goggles are coming in handy here in the desert. :-)

They're not big enough though, I think I need the full wrap around gear to be able to go a day without cleaning my contacts.
