Social Saturday - Vacation, Girlfriends, and No Kids Allowed!

Every Saturday I like to get a little personal with my readers and share what's going on in my world, my head, and/or my heart! I hope you'll play along with me as I share a little about myself each week!

I'm on a little mini vacation at the moment! 
The hubs and I packed up the boys and headed east last Thursday. 
We dropped the boys off with my parents then continued on to Gatlinburg to meet up with some of our friends from college that we get together with at a chalet in the mountains once per year. 
Its something we always look forward to!
And this is what I woke up to Friday morning!

I love the Smoky Mountains.
We have 5-6 other couples we've been friends with since our college days. 
Its 4 days of laughter, shopping, relaxing, and catching up.
And no kids allowed! :)

The girls started Friday off with some shopping. 

I bought Crocs for the first time! A pair each for my boys for the summer.
The Crocs outlet had this bin of Crocs on clearance for $10 each. And the 2nd pair was half off!!
Look at these girls diving in! Don't worry, I was right there with them. :)

A stop at The Scrapbook Superstore (and its clearance outlet right next door) is always a must when we get together. Not that any of us need to replenish our craft stash, but its fun to anyway!!

We managed to stop at a few more places before heading back to the chalet for dinner.

I think we all came back with quite a few new items!

I think I was most excited about my2 new pair of Clarks. :)

We tried something new when picking out our chalet this year. We chose one with a media room! 
It is completely and utterly FANTASTIC!

Its seats all 12 of us and really gives the feel of being in a movie theater. 
And I can not tell you the last time I was in a movie theater!

Friday night the girls took over the room to watch I Don't Know How She Does It.
Fabulous movie! I highly recommend any working mother to watch it.
And your husband. :)

Today, after our traditional breakfast at The Pancake Pantry (mmmmm... sweet potato pancakes!), we girls decided to do an old time photo. We've done it a couple of times on past get togethers and always have a lot of fun with it. 

My girls turned on me though. Everyone decided to take aim at me!



Needless to say, we're having a great time.
And though I am looking forward to seeing my boys tomorrow, 
I don't want to go home! :)

I hope you're all having a fun a weekend as I am!
