Last weekend I met up with some of my favorite bloggers for a little girls getaway weekend. It lasted 24 hours to the minute, but it was so fun and rejuvenating! There are 16 kids between the 5 of us, and it took a ton of planning and scheduling for all of us to make it, but all the work was worth it! We stayed at the iconic Beverly Hilton and it was the ultimate spot for a pamper-filled weekend! Isn’t this room darling?? We stayed in the rooms right next to the pool and it was so chic and impeccably decorated.
We at all the pasta at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood and then grabbed some cookies and cupcakes at Sprinkles.
Saturday morning we woke up at the crack of dawn (after staying up till 2:30am talking…) and took a spin class at Fly Wheel. It was so much fun! I’ve only done a few spin classes and this one was amazing. Although, I have no idea how we all survived it on so little sleep.
We had the breakfast buffet at the Beverly Hilton and had the most incredible omelet. The chef there even made us a special 5-course lunch and these appetizers above were some of the best appetizers I’ve ever had. It was such a treat to be waited on hand and foot! The staff was so kind and accommodating.
We reserved the cutest cabanas by the pool and we spent most of our time with all 5 of us on one. The awnings all around the pool were black and white striped and I was seriously obsessed. (you will see more of the pool area in tomorrow’s post!) This would make the most amazing location for a bridal shower or bachelorette party! (we were actually asked if we were on a bachelorette party weekend…little did they know we have 5 husbands and 16 kids back at home!)
These mini ice cream cones were so cute!
Let me point out that an hour before I left for this trip I was changing a poopy diaper and trying to figure out where the horrendous smell in my fridge was coming from. That is why this trip was so great. We are all moms and we a love being moms (even with all the smells and stress!). But it was fun to let our bodies and minds relax a bit with such talented and driven women. We aren’t used to this kind of pampering, so it was such a treat! We talked work and babies and indulged in some of the most amazing food. I truly believe in joining forces with women you admire. I came home from this trip with a little more drive in me and more patience and gratitude for my 4 dudes.
Here is my snap from the weekend!
