On my way to St. Louis!!
Well...I'm back! And boy am I beat! But isn't that always the case after a vacation! You always need a vacation from the vacation hehee
It it safe to say that I had the time of my life and also safe to say that I have begun a beautiful friendship with Brittany!
My papito and I...what a big boy he is now!
I was hoping I wouldn't cry when I left my children and I didn't. We had to take our youngest with us to airport but I held it together. Actually the only time I got misty eyed about my children was on the plane ride back but that's a fantastic story I will share with you a little later.
People in New York are rarely shocked when they see someone dressed differently and in a way that's cool but sometimes you do want them to at least appreciate the look-know what I mean? I waved goodbye to my husband and baby a few dozen times before I went off to wait at the gate for my plan to arrive. This was my first trip alone since 2005 and my first trip away from my children-so it was a different experience for me this time around.
After a little turbulence, I landed and called Brittany right away. There she was waiting for me with her amazing and beautiful family. We went straight to Sweetie Pie's where we stuffed our faces with the yummiest food ever!!!
I had the meatloaf and mash potatoes with mac and cheese and made sure I took pictures of everything I ate because my husband is a big foodie :) It was divine!

Brittany then treated me to an extra special trip to a store that I have to admit I did my best shopping in! The store shall remain nameless and its location because its her special secret place-I feel totally honored that she brought me!!! I actually purchased 16 super fabulous cardigans for $38.00 dollars!!! Can you imagine that??!! I mean in most shops you can find one good one for that price alone but SIXTEEN!!!! Such a score! We also found matching 1960's mod dresses that we wore for a photo shoot-cannot wait to share those with you!
I left that shop a happy, happy Bunny!! Cardigans are a huge part of a 1940's girls wardrobe and I can also use them with my modern jeans and tops so its a Win-Win situation for me!
Afterwards, we headed to her house and I had St. Louise pizza for the first time with toasted ravioli's-super yum!
We stayed up late chatting up-something Brittany and I and her husband PJ did almost every night hehehe I bought a large stuffed Rainbow Brite doll for my daughter and she loves to bits. At night I kept it near me to make me feel like she was close to me. My girl is such a snuggle bunny-I missed their kisses and snuggles-now I get to do it all day long again hehee
