And we're back. With a Mommy Mafia Update.

The Breaking News Team required a brief hiatus following some red wine fueled deep thoughts, a Homestead weekend with of our very favorite bloggers (and friends), as well as a sad event that we will get around to talking about - but not in this post.

After my introspective moment (bordering on pathetic pity party), which was very well attended by some new friends to this blog - thankyouverymuch - I needed a little bit o' the good times. And it just so happens that I had a weekend jaunt to the Grande Dame of resorts, the Homestead, planned with Sippycups and Happy Homemaker for the following weekend. What good fortune!

To make the weekend even more fabulous - I was an (invited) interloper to their Cocktail Club gathering at Sippycups lovely home. Her margaritas weren't too shabby, either. Good Lawd. Needless to say, we got a late start to the Homestead the next day.

Aside from the brief Shining moment walking through the Grand Hall - the three of us giggled, consumed prosecco & Pom and brie in our room until dinner. Chateaubriand and bananas foster tableside in the 1766 Grille? Oh. Hell. Yes.

In our alcohol infused fuzziness, Sippycups declared that my life plan re-think was due to the lack of minis in my life. Read: I've got too much time on my hands. Ohhh...good idea - minis, said the pumped with prosecco Mrs. News Readin'.

Not so fast, Sippycups. I'm on to you.

And it proves - yet, again - that the Mommy Mafia is an impressive network that knows no geographical boundaries. But, does have excellent taste in resorts, food and fun stuff for their friends.

Loved every minute with you Ladies...Thank you.
More at 11.

Sounds like a ball to me! Hope all is well with you. I'm about due for another great get-away! Humm, the Homestead sounds good to me!

How fun! HH is so sweet and Sippycups is sarcastically hilarious. At least, that's what I can tell from bloggy land.

Sounds like the perfect setting for laughter through tears "my favorite emotion" according to Dolly parton. I only wish I could have been in attendance and let me just say, I would have acted as a Mommy don't for you my dear. I am HUGE!

Happy Homemaker said...

It was so nice!

Although I am disappointed with the lack of pictures! You'd think between the three of us...

Anyhoo, it will pacify me until April when we will meet up with the 'real' mommy mafia!

Wah? Who is the REAL mommy mafia miss hh? News Readin...I had the best time!
I guess I should rethink pushing the minis, since it might make you less able to jaunt off with us at a moment's notice!
