The Getaway

Well, I'm back!
My husband had a business trip to Dubai so I tagged along for the weekend.
Even took a day off from school which I never, ever do.
 Evidence of the holiday season was everywhere to be found.
We enjoyed having dessert and coffee with friends in cafes.
 Eating dinner with a friend from Sri Lanka and Maureen from Daydream Living.

Visited the bookstore in Dubai Mall over and over and over again.
Had a wonderful view from our hotel balcony of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
 And so much more.
It was a great weekend!
The problem is that now I am so far behind with everything!

I hope all is well where you are!

Oh I love that Christmas is everywhere in the world. I had no clue.

Of all the pictures you gave us (and they were all lovely) the one that really sticks out in my head is the Molly Makes with the Owl mitts. I've gotta hunt that down now so I can make those mitts, they are adorable!

Blessings always

Hi, Tammy,
Glad you are safely home from your travels. It is always good to "get away" for a few days for some fun and relaxation. Dubai looks like such a beautiful place. You are fortunate to have visited so many wonderful places. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas! Love and blessings to you~Vicki

Dearest Tammy,
So glad you could tag along and also had a chance for meeting with Maureen again. Oh, that feeling of having to catch up after such a trip I know too well. It is a kind of 'punishment'... But still, I happily accepted that.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Oh my gosh, what a fabulous trip! I"m surprised to see so much Christmas from there. I would have not thought that it was celebrated so much there, but what do I know. Looks like an exciting trip! THe food looks fab. You must have had a great time in the bookstore - don't you love Mollie Makes? Great magazine.

What a nice package of tags you received, but five months? Wow! I think we are spoiled with our mail service!

Have a good week,

Can you imagine the top floors are probably above the clouds! That's amazing! I saw those eclaires and cream puffs........yummmmmmmmmm! So glad you got to go even though you are behind now...I'm always behind and I'm retired so see...it will never change. Ha! Ha!
