We're Back

Kicking and screaming but, I am back! We arrived home Saturday afternoon. MBM and Caroline headed to the Shore for a race on Sunday. MBM did a Half Iron Man today...that is... over a one mile swim, 5o some miles on a bike, and 13.1 miles run...he is crazy!!!! Emma, Lulu and I stayed behind to go to a roller skating party today...fun...time has stood still at the Roller Rink! Luckily, I was not required to skate but, if the played a little REO Speedwagon and I had on my Jordache jeans...who knows what would have happened! Now, we are all back under one roof and headed into a busy week! But, before that let me tell you about our trip...first, I forgot my camera and I am so mad because, The Ritz Carlton Palm Beach is the most beautiful hotel. The lobby is breathe taking, our room beautiful, the restaurants fantastic, the pool and spa relaxing, and the service impeccable!!! MBM's company spoiled us completely. When we arrived a snack of cheese, bread, fruit and sparkling water was delivered to our room to welcome us. Our first night, was a company cocktail party with unbelievable food and drinks. A raw bar, carving stations, risotto station....YUMMY!!! When we returned to our room we found a beach bag filled with gifts...beach towels, sun block, and all sorts of goodies! Thursday we had the whole morning and afternoon to ourselves...we chose to lounge by the pool and spend some time at the spa before we headed to a company cocktail party and dinner. When we returned to our room after dinner we found a "sweet dreams" tray of truffles and champagne! MBM had meeting to attend on Friday morning. I slept in and meet up with some of the other wives for late breakfast. The weather was kind of yucky...windy and rain showers. So, what's a girl to do.... I spent some more time at the spa! Our last night, we decided to stay in the hotel for dinner because of the weather which had turn hurricane like! We were total gluttons!!! So to recap....I ate, drank, slept, lounged, was pampered and spoiled! We never left the property, I don't think I needed to!!!!

What a great trip! Sounds like you had a good planner too. I used to plan trips like that and I loved when we had the budget to do nightly surprises!
