A Little Girl Time

I have so much going on right now.

I am usually really good at balancing a lot of things.

This time there are so many things that I almost just sit and do nothing.

I don't know where to start.

Many months ago one of my best friends, Amy Jo, and I bought tickets to see Wicked.

The plan has been to meet in Denver and have a girl's weekend.

To be honest….I worked up until it was time to go.

The closer I got to Denver the more all my responsibilities and stress just washed away.

We met at the theater to see Wicked first.


Oh my goodness it was sooooo good!!!

Seriously….my favorite show to date and I think we see a lot!

Laughed. Out. Loud.

Really laughed!

I now wish we had seen the show sooner and there was still time to see it again before it leaves.

After the show we headed to the Vesta Dipping Grill.

I love this place and we were not disappointed this time either.

I am hungry just looking at this picture.



We had so much fun catching up without interruptions.


If you are a mom you know what I mean….the conversations that normally don't ever get finished or if you are like me you forget what you were even saying!!!

After dinner we walked around Denver, got a coffee and talked a little more.


We stayed at The Brown Palace…a gorgeous, historic hotel in Denver.

Look at some of the details.





We finished up our time together just walking around Denver and doing a little shopping.





We had so much fun and we can't wait until our next girl time!

Than you Amy Jo for a wonderful weekend and for your true friendship!

You bless my life.

    So… did you get your “Defy Gravity” t-shirt?
    Glad to hear you loved the show. I thought it was great when I went ~ except that I was alone πŸ™ I was at a conference in Atlanta all by myself and needed a diversion for the Friday evening. It would have been so much better with a friend!

    You look so pretty Jeanne. What’s your secret girl?? What a fun get away with a friend. I’ve had lots of friends see that Wicked and they say it’s sooo good. I hate the Wizard of OZ, so it’s never held any interest to me. Glad you had a great time.

  12. lissa

    YOu are such an amazing friend to all! You’re so supportive! I can hear your laugh at wicked all the way over here! I miss it! Glad you enjoyed your weekend so much!!! Now off to silver bella!

    Can I just walk in your shoes for a day? You do the most fun things. I need to learn from you and break away for some fun!! Sounds like such a great time. I always forget what I was saying. Do we recover from that as the kids get older?

  14. Annette Q

    Proper girlie time is the best!! I sometimes forget how much fun it is, I should make more of an effort to do things like these with my friends too πŸ™‚
    Ps..Loved the art you showed us in your previous post, have fun at Silver Bella, it sounds brilliant!

  15. ann

    Oh My Gosh! Where did you get that almond colored ruffly dress? I love it! You look wonderful and so nice to see that you had some time with your friend!

  16. Karyn (French Charming)

    Love all the photos and I’m glad you were able to get away and have some “girl” time. That’s what I need…a trip with a girlfriend…sigh!
    Have a wonderful week!!
    Love and hugs,

  17. anne marie

    haven’t seen it…..
    and you my dear, look lovely in that off-white ruffled dress!!
    p.s. let me know how much caramel corn you want this holiday

  18. tracey

    Oh Jeanne it sounds sooooo wonderful! I’m glad you got your girl time! I completely know what you mean about trying to have a conversation when the kids are around…it usually just makes me frustrated…
    You look adorable in every picture!

    Sounds like a wonderful “girls” weekend.
    Time with friends is a very special time due to all the responsibilities that everyone has so when you get the opportunity for “special times” take it and GO. Enjoy. Everything will be right where
    you left it.
