"Memories Are Made Of This"

I just spent five wonderful days with these lovely women.  They are two of the most important women in my life!  BFFs!!  That's Cathy in blue, Helen in red, and me in white.  (No, we didn't choose a patriotic color palette on purpose!)  We hadn't been together for at least five years and yet it was like I had just seen them yesterday!   I think that's one of the identifiers of good friends.  Don't we look happy?

We were happy!  We talked, we ate, we laughed, we shopped, we laughed, we cried, we sang and sang, and oh, did I tell you we laughed!!!   We had the best time!  It was great. 

The resort we stayed in was very nice with all sorts of activities and things to, mini-golf, both indoor and outdoor pools, shuffleboard, ping pong, arcade games, even horseback riding was available.  We didn't do any of it!!  We were too busy talking and laughing. 

We had a small townhouse with a lovely balcony over-looking the lake.  The weather was lovely (especially the first couple of days), so we sat outside and enjoyed the view and each other.  We had to park a bit too far away from our unit, and had to carry our things up a small hill and a couple of flights of stairs, but it was a small price to pay.  Everything else was great.

Texas seems to have a large number of old, small towns, which cater to antiques, vintage everything from books to jewelry, crafts....a shopper's dream.  We visited Wimberly and Gruene (pronounced green, don't ask me why!) and we did our part to support their local economies!  I ended up bringing home a lovely bud vase that was on sale for half-price!  I just couldn't resist.  Cath and Helen each found treasures of their own.

We managed to find nice restaurants and never had a bad experience or a bad meal.  One of them them was an outdoor Tex-Mex restaurant called Milagros.  We couldn't resist taking advantage of the photo op:

Silly, but fun! 
Actually the whole trip was a hoot (we kept getting lost!)  It was every thing we hoped for and more.  I started to miss them the minute they went into the terminal at the airport to return home. 

"Memories are Made of This"  -  Absolutely!!   We hope to do it again one day.  Do you think next week would be too soon?


  1. Aren't old friends the best?!? It sounds like you had a wonderful time. I am meeting an old friend for breakfast next week. He called and said he was going to be in town and did I want to meet for breakfast. We've only seen each other 4 or 5 times since graduation in 1963. I am looking forward to it. I'm sure time will pass quickly.
    Glad you had a great few days and made it back safe and sound. By the way, nice haircut!

  2. What a wonderful time you had!! Can't wait to get together with my girlfriends this week!

  3. What a cute trio you make! I take a trip each year with 8 of my "girl" friends from high school. We have decided that it is not necessary to worry about where we are going to go on our trip, since we seldom leave the place where we are staying. We intend to, but we are always having too much fun talking and laughing with each other. So glad you had such a wonderful time with your friends. laurie

  4. Sounds like a great trip and I really like your hair in that photo! Nice length. And, yes, old friends are the beste.

  5. What a surpise and hoot to see my mug on your blog! Did you have to post the 3 amigos pic? I thought that would have been dead and gone forever. It was great fun. If I win the lotto, I'm on the next plane and dragging Cathy with me.
    PS; I'm trying to send this for the second time. Me and computers don't mix well. It keeps deleting everything and asking me for my whatever account! Here goes.
    xx Helen
