A Peek Into My Week: A Girlfriend Getaway

I’m taking a break today to reflect upon the week that is in the rear view mirror before I plunge right into a brand new one. How was your week? Was it the same as most or did you do something extraordinary?

A Peek Into My Week: A Girlfriend Getaway


I attended a blog conference in Long Beach, CA called #WeAllGrow. I really went to spend time with my friend Myrah. We met at another blog conference several years ago and became fast friends. Although she lives in Orlando, we make it a point to meet at least once a year on a girlfriend getaway and spend time together, laugh, unplug and help each other to grow personally and professionally.

Myrah could not be any different than me in terms of personality. She is a total extrovert. Going to a blog conference with her is like walking through town with the mayor. She knows everyone and everyone knows her. I’d be perfectly happy flying under the radar but that is not possible with her. Do you have a friend like that? She pushes me out of my comfort zone and I’m sure that is why God put her in my life.

The conference was just what I needed to get my batteries recharged for my business but wow, I’m tired from the late nights, the fast pace and the poor food choices I made. Why is it so hard to eat right when you are traveling? Seriously, I am not good at staying disciplined when I am out of my routine at home.


One of the highlights of my trip was flying in a helicopter over the city of Long Beach. My step-son asked me if I am now a news reporter. I do kind of look like one. LOL. It was exhilarating and is a metaphor for the new heights I want to reach this year.

I’d love to hear about your week and what you have planned for yourself this next week. I highly recommend planning a girlfriend getaway if you can. I’d love to hear about it if you have done it in the past. One of my future goals is to have a girlfriend getaway with my two sisters and sister-in-law who live on the east coast. Do you feel selfish to go away without spouses, significant others or kids?

A Peek Into My Week: A Girlfriend Getaway. Have you ever taken time to getaway with a friend with no kids, no spouse or mate?

That sounds like so much fun! I would LOVE to fly a helicopter.

A girlfriend weekend sounds wonderful. I love traveling without the family.


I have a friend like your Myrah. She and I have been friends for about 10 years. She’s a complete extrovert, I am the complete opposite. We did a girls vacation, for the first time, a few years ago. We took a 4-day cruise, without the spouses (we did take our little ones, though). OMG! So much fun. We were like 2 giddy schoolgirls. Most of the time the kiddos were in childcare, with each other (and wanted nothing to do with the Moms). So, while we could we ate, drank, saw shows, gossiped, caught up with life, and watched the sun sets. So much fun. No guilt…


Your 4 day cruise sounds like a blast. That is exactly what I would love to do with my sisters and sister-in-law some day. I’m so glad you found Myrah’s site. I fixed the link and thank you a million times for letting me know.


The first time I went solo, it felt a little strange, like I was doing something wrong. Now, I love it and am already planning the next one!


The helicopter ride was so smooth. I thought I would be nervous but wasn’t at all. I highly recommend it.

Being with friends sometimes is a very helpful break for mothers out there. Every mom deserves to have a break from the super busy and stressful day and enjoy it with her peers for a change.

Amber Myers

How fun! Girlfriend getaways are always exciting. That blog conference sounds great too. I’ve always wanted to go to one.


yes Sarah-Louise, moms need a break and spending time with girlfriends even for a few hours can be so refreshing.


I highly recommend it for the networking and the friendships. I didn’t attend my first blog conference until I had been blogging for 3 years. I was trying to figure everything out on my own. Life got better once I made friends who understand this crazy life.

Woo-hoo! We all grow! It was amazing, wasn’t it? And we love Myrah. She’s incredible. I’m so glad you had fun and I bet you’ll be wanting to come next year.


It was amazing and so are you and your sister! Myrah knows everyone, doesn’t she? I had such a great time with her. I hope to see you at the next conference.


Glad you had a great time and fun with your sister. I truly feel the happiness and good time which you both of you have spent together. I am having a sister and i love to spend time with her.

It’s always nice when you get to have a break and spend it with your girlfriends. Looks like that blogging conference was a lot of fun as well.

Karlyn Cruz

I’m glad that you had time to have an getaway with your girlfriends it’s really important to have a break.

Tina Gleisner

My best friend & I always take a weekend off for just the 2 of us. We pick a destination but honestly, it’s the quiet talk time in the car while driving that is the best part … catching up on family news, goals and such


What a great way to explore the WeAllGrow summit! I wish I was able to attend. Sounds like everyone had a blast!

I agree Myrah is pretty fantastic. 🙂 I think a girlfriend getaway is a good thing.
