and we should lay off the spicy food

My friends and I go away for a girls weekend every year. This year we have decided to do something fun.  We will be going to Virginia. We will see some historical sites and visit Bush Gardens... and we will act like silly school girls!





Amusement parks always make me feel

  7. The last time I rode a roller coaster was at Six Flags in St Louis when my kids were still in high school. I was petrified.
    I hope you have lots of fun though. :-)

  11. I say, "you are only as old as you feel". Darn, some mornings I feel a bit old. I just keep this over 50 body a movin. I hope I am never too old to have fun. Trip'n with friends is a blast! I love Virginia. Three years ago my hubby and I went there and took in a bunch of the historical sites. Williamsburg was one of my favorites. On a little country road in Virginia I ran across my red dish collection. I love it and have it displayed in a cabinet in my living room. Have a fun trip.
