Saturday morning I woke up around 7 - hurray for 2 days in a row of sleeping in! When my feet hit the floor, something about my toes caught my eye. I went into the bathroom to get brighter light and realized that the polish on both of my big toes was ruined!. Even though my feet had about 4 hours to dry before I put shoes on the evening before, somehow they hadn't dried and my beautiful pedicure was a mess. So upsetting.

We checked out and drove 2 miles to my office. Why? Because on Friday I had received a text from my boss telling me that flowers had been delivered to the office, so I went to pick them up. So glad I did - they were from Little Helen!
After arriving home, we relaxed the rest of the day - watched a movie, a couple of shows I had taped, and laid around and did nothing. I did not clean one single thing or cook any meals - astonishing I know! Finally it was time to go pick up my father-in-law and head over to Mama Helen's house for my family birthday dinner. It was everything you'd want a family dinner to be and more - filled with good food and better than that, a loving family who is loads of fun!
Everything about this evening was spectacular. Every bit as good as the luxury of the spa and inn, just in a different way. In fact the whole weekend was absolutely fabulous - I really couldn't have been more surprised along the way, or asked for one more thing.
