girl trip, GIRL trip, GIRL TRIP!!!!

i'm in the middle of planning a girl's trip. oh, you already knew that. what gave it away? ha. it's nothing major, just a few days away at a girlfriend's house in arizona. and the trip is still a few months away, but still.. i am SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!!

i definitely do not do things like this enough. hell, i never fucking do things like this. or at least i feel like i never do. boyfriend goes away A.LOT. and by a lot, i really mean, a freaking lot. and in all honesty, i don't care. i am totally the girlfriend that doesn't care how often you leave (for the most part) because i enjoy being alone. you being gone for a weekend means that i get to be alone with myself or alone with blake for the weekend. and i totally enjoy that. i'm really starting to think that my independant nature is almost a problem. but that's a post for another day.

so anyway, boyfriend goes away all the fucking time, and i never do shit. and i want to get away more. i want to do things with friends, but it's hard. it's tough to coordinate schedules enough to get away at the same time. it's hard to leave your families. it's hard to not feel guilty while doing it. but we need this. women need time away with other women.

i seriously can't wait. once that ticket is booked i'm going to be counting down the days. i feel like i just don't do anything like this enough at all. and in all honesty, i think i want to start trying harder to schedule things in just for me. i need that balance. we all do.

so what about you? do you do girl trips? do you do anything for yourself?

yuppers -- I love girl trips! 3 of my BFFs from high school and I went to Florida in May to meet up with the 5th of our little group and it was so beyond fun that I didn't want it to end. In fact, I want to go again!

Girl time is ESSENTIAL. I make sure I have mom's night out at least a couple times a month, or, we do things together with friends. I need that face time and to be social. Good for you for getting on a plane and going to have fun. When you do go be sure to pack some aspirin. :)

Thats it I am going to organize something!! I have being saying this since the last one in early septenber. I have to have my girly nights. My best friends all live nearby, from 5mins to 30mins away from me so no excuses. I hope you have a great time. Plus think of all the time you will have to get really excited!!

Ohmygawd I am so jealous! I sometimes feel like my girl friends never want to get away without their significant others! I mean...I took a vacay with the boyfriend this year and it was fab.. but a long weekend with my closest girl friends to somewhere cool would be amazing! I understand save money yada yada.. but for reals. I couldnt agree more that chicks need time with just chicks sometimes!

Ya for girl time and in AZ...my home town where i'm from...even better lady :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a note. As you know i'm on vaca right now with my man, but when i return...i'll be stopping by again. Don't be a stranger.
P.S. I too am VERY independent and don't mind when the man leaves. It makes for a great homecoming!!!

I go no where. Once a few years ago my dad flew me to his place for a weekend away for my birthday, but other than that: me=stuck.

I so hope to be able (some day very soon) to start doing some girl trips. Or any trips at all, really.

You sound so excited, I know you will have a great time.

I am so with you on the "alone time" thing. When my husband leaves for a guy vacay, I'm like "Are you sure you don't want to stay an extra day?"
