Girls Weekend {The Elms}

A few friends and I had a wonderful weekend overnight getaway last Thursday. We keep referring to it as a weekend even though we were only away from our dear husbands and children for 36 hours. It's amazing how refreshing a quick trip was for all of us.

We stayed at a hotel and spa, The Ems, just over an hour away from Lawrence. It was such a lovely hotel!

It's located in the small town of Excelsior Springs, MO. We went into town on Thursday night and had dinner at a little Italian restaurant, it was delicious!

All dressed and ready for dinner!

We enjoyed the outdoor hot tub after dinner. I was the first to go to bed (no surprise there!) and slept the longest uninterrupted stretch of sleep since Weldon was born. It was amazing!

We had a wonderful breakfast at the hotel restaraunt the next morning and then lounged by the pool for a while. It was so relaxing!

No girls weekend is complete without a little shopping trip! We spent Friday afternoon at the Country Club Plaza in downtown Kanasa City. There were all kinds of great sales going on so we all found a little something to bring home!

We ended the weekend with appetizers and drinks on the upstairs porch at Brio on the Plaza.

I'm so thankful for good friends to spend relaxing and refreshing times with!
