Girlfriend Getaway 2013: Granbury

The Flamingos flew the coop (pond? reserve? zoo?) back in September for a little weekend getaway and then I never blogged about it.

Hangs head in shame.

Heather, Robyn, Kim and I headed north then west and Lacie and Lyndsey headed west and south, respectively.
The four of us stopped for lunch at a wonderful little place in Huntsville for some delicious country cooking. I still think about that coconut cake we shared.
We eventually arrived in Granbury (the GPS told us a farm road way to go that seemed to take just this side of forever, oh well, live and learn) and were finally ALL TOGETHER again.

(!!)
We stayed in a little house near the town square which was convenient.
After we settled in a bit and caught up with each other (as if!) we set out to fill our grumbling tummies with some pizza.

As you do.
As it turned out our eyes were much bigger than our stomachs or their pizzas were ginormous or we didn't have a clue how much we were actually ordering (two larges? really?).

Or maybe all of the above.

Later we were on a mission at Dollar General and a stinky grocery store for essentials like coffee mugs (the cottage was only stocked with styrofoam cups, WHAT?), aviator sunglasses and half and half.
Saturday was filled with lazy morning chit chat over coffee and egg muffins which led to lunch which finally led to getting ready for the day afternoon of shopping without husbands or littles distracting us or rolling their eyes at us or checking their watches or sighing.
We went back to the cottage to freshen up and change for supper and a show.
And by a show I mean Granbury's community theater's production of Steel Magnolias.

We wore ourselves out laughing and talking and eating and drinking coffee and laughing and eating some more.

It was divine.

The weekend flew by, as all good things tend to do, too fast and we were soon packing up our cars to head back to our real lives. We don't usually say goodbyes, we hug and smile and cry (though not usually me, not that I don't want to cry, I just can't seem to muster up tears) and say see y'all soon.

Here are a few more photos from the weekend, enjoy!

    1. Small world! We mainly stayed around the town square shops and stuff but thought it was a really cute town. It's always nice to getaway with the girls--no matter where we go! :)

    1. The shirt came from Nordstrom in late summer. The shoes are Kork Ease Ava's and are the most comfortable wedges ever with a retro 70s feel. Thanks!
