We're Baaack! :-)

If you follow my blog, you probably read my last post about preparing to leave the girls with my in-laws for a week.  Well, we're back and everyone survived!  In fact, we did better than just surviving.  My in-laws said the girls were great.  They behaved, cooperated in the mornings, got their homework done, made to their extracurricular activities, and didn't seem to miss us at all.  When we got back, the house was sparkling clean (Thanks, MawMaw!) and we were showered with lots of sweet hugs and kisses.

As for DW and me, we had a FABULOUS time!!!  The trip was a reward trip from his company that is given each year to the top 2% of their global salesforce.  Aside from enjoying the trip, I am one proud wifey!  We spent four days at the Breakers resort in WestPalm Beach, Fla.  (You know it is a swanky place when you pull up in the motorcoach from the airport and see in the parking lot an assortment of Porsches, Maseratis, Ferraris, and Bentleys.)  As I began writing this post, I tried to come up with something profound and enlightening to share with you, but it wasn't really profound - It was just FUN! We meet some new people, had some new experiences, ate some amazing food, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there.  Here are some highlights:

Okay, I remember you writing a post about how you were hesitant about wearing a bathing suit for this trip. So did you just get really healthy and work out like crazy? because I think you look great!!

Thanks! I wrote that post in January and I actually did lose about 10 pounds before the trip. Of course, I gained back 4 or 5 with all that wonderful food, but it was worth it! :)
