My FAB Family Girls Getaway Weekend - What to Bring

As we get closer to one of My Fab Family Girls Getaway Weekends ~ this is the kind of email my girls get.  The intention of the email is to both prepare them and pump them!  If they smile a little at some of the graphics then that is icing on the cake!

What You Need To Bring 
beer/wine or whatever you would like to drink mostly for IN your room OR Late Night - when in restaurants at the Hotel YOU MUST purchase their beverages not come packing!!!  (u may want a wine opener)

A small cooler with ice to keep you beverages chilled (There is no ice machine for direct access but you can call the front desk and guest services will bring ice to the rooms.)  The Hotel does have 24 HOUR room service!  (there will be a plastic garbage bag in your room to place under your coolers so they don't leak on the carpet)

Ipod for your own use in your rooms - there are Ipod Docking Stations in all rooms.
Snacks (both salty & sweet) there is a little bakery attached to our hotel 
My sis & I will bring games, cards, & IPOD player for main area.
Comfy WARM clothes including a warm jacket, gloves and hat
FOR Sat am Mushing - LAYERS LAYERS LAYERS .. sweat pants over jeans over long johns (you get the idea) OR Snow/Ski Pants if you have them ... Your bottom will sometimes get wet sitting in the sled.  If you are going some place afterwards be prepared with dry pants!  HATS and GLOVES are a MUST!  Waterproof boots to keep your tootsie dry.  A WARM jacket you get the idea.  SPEAKING of Mushing start to pray for snow (sounds like a silly thing to pray about but as of now there is NONE and they are not even in operation as of yet. 

Clothes for dinner Sat night (a little on the finer side of attire only because it is a GOURMET restaurant ~ no ball gowns needed)

Super BLING SUPERBOWL outfit (remember there will be a prize!)

Keep in mind when packing that we are within walking distance to most events! AND the Hotel has blow dryers in every room!
ALSO BRING $money$ for -
Fri Night's Dinner (bills will be split by tables) 
Tip for Bus Driver on Sat am
Sat Lunch on your own
Sun Brunch
Sunday Night Superbowl Party food and drink (and don't forget $ for our Football Pool) 
Any spa treatments you have scheduled don’t forget to tip your therapist
Any Shopping you may want to do
  1. your worries
  2. your stress
  3. your significant or not-so-significant other
  4. your kids (unless your daughter is coming too)
  5. your pets
  6. any other distractions that would keep you from fully enjoying your special weekend!
