What started out as four of us...turned into just 2 and that was FINE by US! My BFF Cass and I went down to Hyannis for a weekend of fun and relaxation.
Although the weather could have been better (never made it out to the pool or the beach), we ended up being outside for most of Saturday and got scorched! (so not planned)
When we got there on Friday afternoon, we hit the sports bar at our resort- Bogey's at Cape Cod Resort and Conference Center. We had some apps and cocktails and then headed to the room to NAP (what's that?????) and watched intently as Whitey Bulger was being escorted to the court house in Boston (in fact that was all over TV all weekend long!)
Friday night we enjoyed some wonderful tapas and martinis at Embargo on Main Street!
Here we are in our glory...well with Cass's Bikini Martini and my Pop Idol Martini :)
The tapas we chose were perfect: curried chicken salad lettuce wraps, stuffed mushrooms and sliders- delish
After that, we strolled down Main Street and visited some awesome little jewelry shops! Bella of Cape Cod is our favorite shop and one we discovered when were down here with our hubbies in 07. Everything is under $25 and there is lots of pink and green and fun silver jewelry- we got the cutest rings and bracelets and hair ties...I even got the cutest little purse for Diana :)
On Saturday, when we woke up it was misty out...I trotted down to the health club only to find out that it did not open until 7:30...UGH..so didn't let it stop me...went for a power walk and enjoyed the quaint scenery of the Cape...LOVE...when I got back, Cass and I decided to make the most of our weekend and make a trip to Mashpee Commons to walk around the village of shops...it was love at first site! Our favorite stop however? Lilly Pulitzer of course!
I have loved Lilly for years and I finally fit into her stuff...as a present to myself for something big that is happening (stay tuned- can talk about it in a few days!) I got a navy and white Lilly dress and a pair of pink poppy Lilly pants! It was now Cass's turn to make some Lilly purchases :)
Seriously though? The cat that swallowed the canary here right?
After the shops, Cass suggested we try a place that looked great...tropical and right on the water...Trader Ed's on Hyannis Marina. After driving around for a bit and trying to find it, we finally found it! Though it was chilly at first, the sun came out and we enjoyed an awesome lunch outside and several cocktails...too many and then the rest was rather a blur...all I know is we were there from 12noon until about 10:30pm...after lunch there was dancing and a dj and we felt 19 again...and that is where i will leave it...
Well...check out the lobster on the right huh? Did I mention we got scorched! Oh yeah...when we came back Saturday night we bumped into Kimmy and Tom who were also staying at our resort...needed to get a pic to prove it!
Sunday morning? I felt like I garbage....had so much fun with Cass though...celebrating our friendship and enjoying some R&R....so glad to be home though and back to my normal life...missed my hubby and babes so much!!!
