Scenes not included:
2 salami and cheese platters consumed, 4 bottles of wine drank, 3 boxes of Starbucks instant Via coffee gulped down, 8 blended margaritas slurped at the JW Marriott, countless twenty-something bodies at the Marriott pool, 1 bottle of 30 spf sunscreen, lots of magazines read, too many laughs too count, too many therapy tears shed (mainly by me, as the girls tried to walk me through one of the biggest decisions I will ever make), zero books read,1 huge house to get lost in, priceless memories made.

thanks girls.  i will never forget this trip.  ever.

p.s. thank you for all of the book recommendations made last week.  i compiled a list and attempted to go to 2 libraries friday night before i was set to meet up with the girls.  both were closed, hence, zero books read.  however, i plan to go today and first pick up the shack.
