Morning Meanderings…. Last Weekends Girl Weekend and Concert
Good morning! Quick check in on my back….. PAIN. BIG PAIN. Not sure what my next step is. I seen the chiropractor yesterday and felt pretty good when I left but as the day went on it got worse… now if I clench my hand into a fist on my right hand a shoot of pain goes into my back. Good grief…. I am so not this girl. My back hurts so bad I am propped in the recliner and even that is not helping. I am trying to decide if I try the chiropractor again or if I need to go to the hospital. GAH. Hate this.
Ok… anyway… last weekend I had went with 8 other girls to Walker Minnesota for a girls weekend. This group does this once a year and last year I had missed out because it was the home show weekend and I was already committed to it.
So this years adventure was not very far away – a little over an hour from home is Walker Minnesota and our reasoning for going was to go to the Rick Springfield concert. Now personally – while Rick Springfield was ok back int he 80’s… I probably would not have chosen to go to his concert…. HOWEVER you mix in 8 fun friends and suddenly the idea sounds brilliant. 😛
We left on Friday and went to a beautiful hotel called Chase on The Lake. We had two suites and you have to see these rooms:
The rooms were fun and Friday night we stayed in, had dinner, and played board games. On Saturday we went to the shops near by and I bought a cute summer shirt and a sweater (ugggh…. with our weather lately you just do not know which way to go). Saturday afternoon I even had time to write a review while some of the girls played more games or napped. Saturday evening after a good dinner in the hotel we went to the concert.
Color me impressed. Rick put on a very good concert and turns out I knew more songs than I thought I did. He was high energy, pulled people on to the stage including a little 7-year-old girl who sang “Don’t Talk To Strangers” with him. Amy, Paula, and Heidi spent the whole concert right up front and Paula and Heidi were both hugged by Rick when he went into the crowd.
Saturday night we were back in the hotel and played board games again until one in the morning…. I love board games!
A fun weekend and I actually liked that we were not that far away as we were home on Sunday around 1:00 pm. So I still had Sunday to get the house cleaned up and have dinner with Al.
