Very Nice Weekend

 
Hi Everyone!  How was your weekend?  Mine was somewhat of a whirlwind.  It wasn't all that I would have wanted but it was super to say the least.
 
Heather called me up early on Friday morning and asked if Rene and I would be available to go to Santa Barbara and spend a couple of days at a fantastic resort hotel on the beach and be pampered.  Now how could I pass up on that.  I had no plans at all and that sounded so exciting.  I called Rene up and he was all for it.  He finally got a whole weekend off.  So I called Heather back and told her we were in.  Heather's Dad and Mom had planned a weekend jaunt there but as luck had it her Dad got called out of town on business so they had this wonderful cottage room available with no one going to be there and it was already paid for. 
 
So after work I rushed home and packed some stuff for the weekend and Rene came home around 6 o'clock.  We headed for Heather's and picked her up on the way up the coast.  I have to tell you that the weather was so warm and beautiful this weekend and the visibility on the coast was so clear you could see the channel islands in great detail like you could reach out and touch them.
 
We were pampered with massages in the spa and I even did a little laying out at the pool with Heather while Rene was out on the beach.  He does like the beach a lot and that is something he has in common with my sister.  We had some wonderful meals.  We had Italian food Saturday night at this place called Palazzio in Montecito.  Montecito is one of the rich areas where stars have homes.  We also made our way to State St. and went bar hopping a little but it got kinda rowdy with all the college students from USCB around so we headed back to the seclusion of our hotel on the beach.  This hotel, the Biltmore, was built in 1927 and has been frequented by many stars and such throughout the years.
 
We had so much fun and relaxation I almost didn't come back to the Valley for the work week.  LOL  But here I am all rested and had a good day nonetheless today.  Hope you all had wonderful weekends and started your work weeks off with positive days.  Be happy and enjoy your tomorrow.  Luv ya!  TTFN
