Girls Weekend at the Beach!

I'm so excited to be going to the beach for the weekend! Susan,one of my good friends and I are leaving on Friday morning to drive to the beach to visit a friend from high school. Susan and I both knew Wendy from high school and reconnected on Facebook.

Wendy and her husband live at the beach and invited us down for the weekend for a girl's weekend. I am taking my old high school yearbooks and I'm sure we will have lots of stories to re-tell about our high school days back in the late 60's - early 70's. We graduated from high school in 1972.

It won't be warm enough to swim, but it will be nice to get out and walk on the beach. Anything will be better than the snow we have had this winter. It even snowed on Wednesday this week, but didn't stick. I am so ready for spring!

There is a cute little town near where we will be staying that has lots of antique shops, so I'm sure we will check those places out. We also want to eat out and try some local seafood while we are there.

I only have to work a half day on Thursday, because the little boy I nanny for has an eye appointment. It will be nice to have the afternoon to get some things done here at home and get my bags packed for my trip. I don't have a laptop, so unless my friend takes hers, I guess I won't be online until I get back home on Sunday.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Can you believe that next week is the first of March? I'm so excited that spring is right around the corner. Plus, it is almost my birthday. I can't wait to see my first daffodils blooming.

Take care. I will see everyone back in blogland on Sunday.
