We started our "weekend" (which was really just about 24 hours) Saturday around noon and drove out to Green Street Restaurant for lunch. We both ordered salads, because I think that's what you do at a girly lunch, and then we checked in to our hotel, the Westin Pasadena. I chose it because I wanted a clean, comfortable room in a great location. Once we parked at the hotel, we didn't have to drive anywhere, so that's an ideal location to me.
We spent the afternoon chatting poolside, and some ladies even offered us their (prepaid) cabana because they thought Jenn could use the shade for her adorable belly! (By the way, I completely neglected to take any photos almost the entire weekend.) Around 5:30 we headed back to the room for an in-room "happy hour"--I had packed sparkling lemonade, grapefruit soda, dried mangoes, some fruit, and crunchy peas. I called for two wine glasses to make it more fun, so we sipped and snacked while we got ready for the evening. Dinner was at Green Street Tavern, and it was okay but not fantastic. I think we weren't really in the mood for their menu, so maybe another time it would have been more fitting. Afterward we headed to 21 Flavors for frozen yogurt. We were a little confused about how it worked, but basically it's like Cold Stone as far as how you choose your flavors and mix-ins. It was pretty good, although we both asked for "Heath Bar" and really they just had toffee. These are the true troubles in life.
After staying up until almost 11:30, we clocked a solid eight hours of sleep (ahhhh), and then we walked a short distance to Urth Caffe for breakfast.
We took a longer route back and then packed up to head home. It was such a fantastic, relaxing, fun weekend. I felt completely relaxed knowing Terry was home with Marshall and of course loved all the girl talk. Perhaps a new tradition has been born!
Now that I'm back home we're back to the normal swing of things and even fit in a short strength workout tonight. I am planning two days of running this week, so we'll see how it all works out in the heat. Maybe some early mornings...? Orrrrr maybe not.
Where was your last getaway?
Do you prefer morning or evening workouts? I prefer morning, but those are SO rare now.
