Where Have I Been Lately?

That is a good question! I have been really uninspired and have had very little to say lately. I know, I know, for those of you who know me that is impossible. Well, we have been so crazy busy lately, but Don and I did find some time to get away alone together.
After months of working in California and only spending a day and a half together once every other 2 weeks, we needed some quality time together. So we booked a long weekend at One Ocean Resort.
We arrived in our room to a chilled bottle of champagne and it just went up from there. Here we are in the lobby. The artwork and sculptures around the hotel were breathtaking.
We enjoyed a couple's massage at the Spa and afterwards I got into this lovely hot tub in the ladies lounge.
This was the entrance into the hotel restaurant and bar. The underwater theme was very effective.
This metal piece of art was so pretty right outside the bar area. The champange is kicking in, my smile is getting bigger.
The smile gets bigger. This was me before the massage.
Hubs all relaxed after the massage. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!! Worth every penny.
We found the bar after the massage and had a few more cocktails before dinner, here....
This is the hotel restaurant called Azurea. The food was outstanding. Yes, after all that drinking I do remember the dinner.
We arrived home in time to send Don off for another 2 weeks in CA and another project with the same firm. So, looks like we will be spending some more time going back and forth. In this crappy economy, we are happy to have the work. We will ride that wave until it rolls out onto the beach! So for now, I will be getting ready for friends from Canada to visit, see Don's son off for a 1 year tour of duty in Kuwait and work on getting some art classes going with some very talented ladies. Stay tuned for more on that. I hope you are all enjoying your summer. It is going by at warp speed for us.

I know what you mean by having little to say... Sometimes I think we just need to lay back,let go of a few things and just as they say.... ROLL WITH IT! I have been so busy with the two weddings that blogging has fell in the cracks. Hopefully after we return from Chase's wedding in Barbados things will get back to normal. I have so many pictures to post of the things that I made for Whit's wedding. JUST HAVE TO FIND THE TIME TO DO IT!! LOL Hope the summer is going great and if you ever have some classes close by let me know. I love taking any kind of class!
Hope to see you soon!
