The Weekend Of Awesome

O.K., I've gotten some flack from you, my loyal readers, for posting rather lame updates about the big Weekend Of Awesome. I'm sorry, really I am. I would sit down to blog about it and get overwhelmed. There was just too much awesome going on. And let's be honest--it was usually 3 or 4 in the morning when I'd sit down and try to sum up all that had gone on. It was just easier to throw up a few pictures from the day.

So here's my attempt to make it up to you.

First, some details. We met up at a beach house in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. There were 16 women and 4 babies. We arrived from everywhere--Georgia, Tennessee, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, Utah and Hawaii. Most of us arrived late Thursday evening and left Monday after lunch, though a few arrived on Friday and those who had flown in stayed through today.

As far as the weekend goes, it's hard to describe. It'll sound completely boring to anyone who wasn't there. There was a lot of eating and talking. Lots and lots of talking. Our resident yoga experts taught some classes (my thighs were sore for two days). Some people took advantage of the hot tub out on the deck. Some took advantage of the huge, jetted tubs in some of the rooms. Everyone spent time walking the beach. There was a lot of knitting and jewelry making going on. A photography class was held. Two women were even brave enough to run out into the ocean (albeit for about 30 seconds). Games were played (I remain the undefeated Scrabble champion of the world), movies were watched (including a bootleg copy of New Moon straight from the streets of Los Angeles. Which I slept through.) and babies were oohed and ahhed over.

But mostly we talked.

I know it sounds completely lame and boring. You'll just have to trust me--the awesomeness was there.

It was in the talking. It was in the 16 women who were there.

And we're totally going to do it again next year.

Want to come?
