girl's weekend 2010

The annual Hanson Girl Weekend has come and gone, and I am back to laundry and work.  But oh what a wonderful four days we had!

We met in Baxter for shopping on Friday, then headed to Nisswa for lunch.  If you have never been to Rafferty's Pizza in this tiny little tourist town, jump in your car and go there, TODAY.  Or just stop the next time you happen to go through.  Their sign proudly proclaims they are one of the top 100 pizza places in the United States, and I would have to say that is true.

The beer was cold and the glasses were frosty.  Beer for lunch-we were definitely on vacation!
Chicken Ranch pizza.  PERFECT.
Fueled up we were on to shopping:  Buffalo Plaid, our favorite store, first stop.
Lots of giggling and goofing off.
A break for fancy coffee (we were really letting loose).  I think our laughing could be heard for blocks.
We spent the rest of the weekend at the Spa on the Hill (otherwise known as Heather's house in Bemidji).
We relaxed, drank wine, and had pedicures.  They were a much better deal than going to the spa at Grandview, and dare I say, just as relaxing.  (they tend to frown on lots of giggling at a real spa....)
(And Tracy, you will be happy to know that the blue toes this time are Heather's....)
The weekend was full of good food (no cooking allowed), naps, stories told, and laughter shared. 

And now we are ready to face the world again. Thanks dear girls, for another wonderful weekend that will go down in the memory books.  I am one very lucky woman to have you both in my life.
