So my husband has a large work kick-off meeting in his region the beginning of each year. Luckily, the event is held at the Beau Rivage Resort in Biloxi and I am able to go, too. This is our second year getting to go and it is pretty fun for a work event. Mike works the majority of the weekend but after work, we get to enjoy some nice food and, of course, the casino. Our girls get to spend a few days with family so we can spend a few days without them. It is kind of nice to have a mini vacay, though we do miss them while we are gone.
One of my favorite things to do, besides a little gaming, is to enjoy the spa. I usually spend the better half of one day in the spa getting a massage, having lunch, and just lounging around in the quiet facilities. I rarely get massages so this was great! And the staff at the spa is so accommodating. If I need anything, I just ask and they handle it. Refreshing!
I need to also mention the work event. Mike's coworkers are always so nice to me and they really put on a great event. I got to eat some wonderful food, too. I really enjoyed hanging out with the other employees and their wives and have met some good folks. I look forward to seeing them again next year!
After my relaxing few days, I picked my girls up and got to spend a day and a half enjoying them. When we got home we enjoyed some Crazy Bread (a favorite from Mike and I were dating) and watched Star Wars Episode 1. I promise this movie was picked out by my girls and they are super excited that it is coming back to the theater! Monday was a holiday for all of us girls so we slept late and played/lazed all day before a nice dinner and quiet night. I even heard the girls playing sweetly together....which is not a sound I hear all that often! What a perfect weekend! Now, back to the grind.
