That being said, I found out on Friday at 4:30 pm that I was going to have to work on Sunday. I was so upset. I was looking forward to a weekend away from it all with my lovely hubs. I left pretty quickly after that and was feeling kind of mopey and bummed about our weekend being cut short, when my husband came up with an incredible idea.
"Let's use your discount somewhere!" Duh, what a great idea. I'm working like a crazy lady, so why not take advantage of one of those great benefits? Discounted room rates!
We didn't go far, in miles, from home. But we felt a world away. We stayed at the Marriott in Marina del Rey, we went out to dinner and had many drinks, we slept in until 11, we laid in bed all morning and ordered room service and watched movies on HBO. We laid at the pool for a few more hours to keep our reality suspended for a little longer. It was amazing. It was such a needed break for the both of us and the greatest Friday night I've had in a long time!
The first weekend that I don't have to work we are planning on making it a full on weekend "getaway" to the JW Marriott in Palm Desert. Which , by the way, has a SPA! I'll be indulging in that for sure! After this little glimpse into what that will be like...I am beyond ready and excited to go!
