LUCKY THIRTEEN – FIFTY-TWO NEW THINGS FOR 2013: NO. 21

new thingsMy new thing for this week was a girl’s weekend in Tulsa.    I love my spending time with my daughter.  That is not to say, I don’t love my son, I do.  But, the relationship between mother and daughter is different.  For the last few years we have taken a weekend “girl’s trip,” no boys allowed.  My son would never do that – we have a different relationship.  This last weekend was our belated Mother’s Day Mother-Daughter trip.peggy & Brandi

We traveled to Tulsa and stayed at the Marriott Tulsa Hotel Southern Hills   http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/tulse-marriott-tulsa-hotel-southern-hills/  mostly for the spa and the fountains (or the martinis).  fountain  We scheduled massages early in the afternoon and I turned into a big bowl of pudding.  I was so relaxed my daughter had to remind me to pay!  At least that was my excuse.  We spent most of the rest of the afternoon shopping. Girls love shopping.

I was in love with the architecture and gardens.  I have decided what my little brick ranch style house lacks columns.  You know big roman columns and maybe a fountain with statues in the middle.  I’m just sayin.’ columns

I LOVE girl’s weekends!  What did you do this last weekend?

    Your daughter sure looks like you! My hubby used to work at Philbrook. He’s the best unofficial tour guide.
