Weekend with the girls

My friend, Kathee, organized this ladies' night away.  Five of us were able to go, and it was A BLAST!!!  We arrived in Seoul at around 2:00 in the afternoon on Friday.  We had to enjoy some of the homemade ice cream at the Dragonhill Lodge (where we were staying).  From left to right...Grace, Kathee, Liz, Lynn (me), Maya.

Then, we went shopping at the ladies' shop in the hotel.  We all liked this dress.  The other two ladies each bought one.  I have another similar dress so I resisted the temptation.

Off for our pedicures...


Now that we all have pretty toes, we head off for dinner at Seoul Tower (behind me).
We ate in the revolving restaurant.  It took about 1 hour to travel 360 degrees, so we were able to enjoy all the views of Seoul while we were dining.




We talked until about 2 am, and it still only felt like 10 pm.  The next morning, we went in shifts for massages (sorry no pictures of this folks). :)  After lunch, we headed to Dongdemun Fabric market.  This is an indoor market, and IT IS HUGE!!!  It is several floors that seem to go on for miles.  I bought lots of ribbon for scrapbooking and a few hair clips for Adeline.  There was an overwhelming amount of fabric, buttons, jewlery, and ribbon.  For those who sew or quilt, this place is a dream come true for you.


Thanks girls.  I loved every minute...
