Giggles and Pillowfights

Filed under: Family & Friends,It's Me, Lass — by InterstellarLass @ 10:20 am

So there was laughter, not really giggles. It’s not really giggling when you get tears in your eyes and you feel like you’re going to wet your pants. And there were no pillowfights. Even though we had two adjoining rooms with giant bolsters on the beds. We could have totally had some kind of war with those. But we were dignified.

I must give props to Embassy Suites. They have a ‘manager hosted’ happy hour from 5:30-7:30. I was thinking cheap drinks. No. They were free drinks. Can you say woo-hoo? Judy brought snacks. Yummy snacks. Spinach, artichoke & asparagus dip is good. Then, after happy hour was over we got 2 pizzas included with the room package. AND breakfast the next morning wasn’t make-your-own-waffles and cold cereal. They have a made-to-order breakfast bar with pancakes and omeletes and sausage and good hashbrowns and all. I was very impressed. For the price it was better than most places I think. Costs a little more but you get more.

After a bit, Amy decided she wanted to go out and pick up a cute boy, and Judy and I decided we were going to help her. So, we drove up to the Flying Saucer, got a couple of beers, and listened to a band called The Killdares. They were really really friggen good. I’d like to go see them again. We actually pretty quickly found a cute boy for Amy. He let us sit at his table and he found us chairs, and he was very nice. I hope he calls her because he seemed very gentlemanly. I’m going to leave out the part about the cops, the wine, the valet parking and the ice in the parking lot.

The next morning it took two bottles of water before I felt good enough to go down to breakfast. I’m not too old yet. 😉 This was a much needed fun night. I hadn’t let off a little steam with the girls since we went down to Wimberley, so this was good. Girlfriends are the best!


  1. You lucky girl – a girly night out! I need one of those.
    I am back blogging though. Grizzly saga will follow.
    Happy New Year to you… my interstellar friend.

  2. Cops? They didn’t join in the pillow fight, did they?

  3. Sounds like fun!

    I really like staying at Embassy Suites for their free booze and great breakfast bar.

  4. Um, thanks for leaving out the part about the wine and the cops. You have to admit…my drunken antics can be entertaining at times?!?

    Thanks for helping me celebrate my birthday! 🙂

  8. I’m jealous I wasn’t invited. Sounds like a wonderful night. I may need to suggest such a weekend to my girlfriends.

  9. That sounds like such a great girls night! I had never thought about a sleep over at a hotel but it actually sounds kind of perfect. That band sounds good too, but did the guy sing the whole time or did they change it up? (I don’t think I love his voice in the clip I heard, but I love the music).

  10. Aww, shucks.
    The cops and the wine sounds like possibly the best part. Ah, well, maybe that’s for another post.
    A matchmaker, eh? Hmm…
