days 11-12 and FIN

June 21, 2017

We are home!  Arrived late Monday night after a 2+ hr flight delay.  It wasn’t fun, but was still better than a similar delay we had when the kids were 1 and 3 (on the way back from a trip to North Carolina!).

But before I get ahead of myself, the rest of our trip included:

Saturday
– MASSAGES at the hotel for Josh + me (the kids stayed with my parents from about 6pm Friday to 11am Sunday.  It was a mini babymoon and much appreciated!).  The Hotel Palomar was great – I’ve never been disappointed by a Kimpton property.

– shopping at a Japanese stationery shop!!  I would love to say I stumbled on it, but I googled “Japanese stationery” and this gem came up, just 2 blocks from our hotel.

haul from the trip.  My stash was looking depleted . . .

– triple dinner date with the lovely Laura and another (anon) blog friend ( + spouses) at Talula’s Daily.  We had a blast!  I was just a wee bit jealous of everyone’s wine pairing, but . . . next time.

dinner started with lobster rolls . . . decadent

Sunday
– a trip to visit Josh’s college friend.  Their gorgeous home and yard (and some others I saw on this trip) gave me square footage envy, something I never had before.  Annabel and Cameron played amazingly well with their 10+12 year old children.

– father’s day gift giving + family BBQ

Monday
Mostly just the aforementioned flight home.  Note to self:  fly before noon.  We didn’t get home until 10 pm (due to delays on a 4 pm flight) and it was rough!  But we survived.

We are now back home and today I started back at work, though it was mainly a catchup/meeting day.  Tomorrow I have a full pt day and on Friday I’m on call for a week!  At least I’m armed with fresh vacay energy this time . . . and thankfully no more nausea.
Maybe I’ll even have the mojo to post some goals soon!  We’ll see . . .
