Recovering...

The weekend was awesome! Mostly, it was just a lot of drinking, sunning, dancing and laughing. I gambled a little bit on Friday and actually won a few dollars, but not a whole lot. It was really nice to get to spend a few uninterrupted days with a couple of Big Sis' friends that I didn't know terribly well.

Golf on Friday was really fun. I beat Munchkin and Big Sis:-) And all the boys instantly fell completely in love with Smoking Hot Roommate (if they weren't before) when they realized that she is way better than all of them. Looking that hot in little golf shorts probably helps, too... The cookout was really fun, too. There were a lot more people there than I expected...it was actually kind of a pre-wedding family get together. Lots of both of their families stopped by for a little bit or for the whole night.

We briefly thought about bringing Munchkin with us to the casino, but decided against it (probably a good idea.) I may be a "cool Mom", but even I have standards;-) She and Papa Bear went to Red Sox games on Saturday and Sunday and went out on one of his friend's boats one day, too, so she had a fine weekend without being around the drunk kids. And yes, I managed to NOT talk to her when I was wasted:-)

The casino was kind of uneventful. The table minimums were like $25, so I didn't play much...two other girls and I pooled $100 each and played blackjack for a while. We ended up winning about $125, and then I lost a bit playing War. Overall, I think I won maybe $20, and drank free drinks worth a lot more than that:-D I think Big Sis kinda took a bath at the blackjack tables, but she wasn't saying how bad the damage was...lol. Maybe now she is finally willing to tell us all how bad it was:-)

We got up pretty early, all things considered, on Saturday and made it to Newport pretty early. We were on the beach by 1:00, which was better than I expected. Good thing we had drivers, because none of us was sober enough yet on Saturday morning to drive...lol. Both Saturday and Sunday we just basically hung out on the beach, drank fruity drinks, made fun of people that were...um..."Not in the kinda shape necessary to wear that bathing suit" and laughed a lot. Pretty low key, really. We went out both nights, and got a little crazy on Saturday, but not too bad. No one brought any strange boys home with them...lol. So that is kind of a victory.

Now I am just really tired. Sorry I don't have any more details than that, but there was nothing worth blogging about...no fights, no hookups, no sketchy men...just a basic good time. Boring, eh? Maybe we really are getting old...:-)

I would like to pretend that I have to get back to work, but this is not going to be a real productive day...I can tell. Maybe I will see if any of the boys feel like a long lunch...

More serious blog tomorrow, promise.

I was in Newport Saturday too. Saturday night hung down at Bowen's Wharf at The Landing Restaurant. Sat at the bar there and got really drunk. Stayed at the Newport Inn!!!

Yay for a fun girls weekend without drama! It doesn't mean you are getting old it just means you are hanging out with the right girls!
