This is the best word to describe my last 30ish hours. Yesterday morning I dropped my kids off at my mom's and headed for Minneapolis to hit IKEA, meet up with a college friend, stay at family friends' and then hit Trader Joe's this morning on the way home. Every aspect of the mini trip was so much fun! I had a great book on CD and the ride up went way too fast. I conquered IKEA with only a few ego bruises while dropping boxes trying to balance too much on my cart (3 really nice people helped me reload). Then I had the BEST time hanging out with Jane - my friend from college. I really couldn't have had more fun. The same laughs, the same mannerisms we had while in college - but now we're talking about being wives and moms - TOO MUCH FUN! I then got to our family friends' house and stayed up until 12:30 talking to Sue and drinking wine - perfect end to a perfect day. When I got up this morning I took a shower and took as long as I wanted. I also actually blow dried my hair right after taking my shower and put my make up on all at once, by myself - a serious luxury. Then Sue had made the ultimate breakfast - my favorite meal. We printed a couple maps to get me where I wanted to go and I hit the road. Trader Joe's was fabulous and I was able to finish my book on CD before I got back to Sioux Falls. I've unloaded the car and mom has just pulled up with my kids - talk about a perfect 30ish hours!
