Day 21: What Moms REALLY Do When They're Alone In a Hotel.

This past weekend I was able to meet up with a dear friend in Boston.

We’re food/fashion/style soul mates. And this weekend, even after not having seen each other for almost 2 years, we picked up right where we left off. 

And it was amazingly awesome.

We're both creative directors, full-time working mothers, with Type A personalities, who may or may not be perfectionists.

After a wine-soaked lunch, miles of walking, and hours of trying on clothes, we headed back to the hotel.

What do two busy moms do when they are away from their families?

Well, it looks something like this:

Setting: hotel room around 5pm, each of us lying on a bed in a slightly-comatose state, eyes glued to HGTV.

ME:  “This.Is.Awesome.”
FRIEND:  “No one is looking for me. Or climbing on the bed. Or needs something.”
ME:  "What is up with that fireplace?"
FRIEND: "Don't you totally girl crush on Joanna Gaines?"
ME:  "That room totally needs an accent wall."
FRIEND:  "I could live in that kitchen."
ME:  “For the record, I would totally be down with not moving and doing this all night and ordering room service.”

NOTE: We did eventually get dolled up and went out for drinks and a delicious late dinner.

But that hour of doing nothing except critiquing the Property Brothers’ design choices?
