This post needs some explanation. Actually...my whole family needs explanation. ;)
Every year, my dad, brother, and husband go on a "Father-Son Fishing Trip". It's called the "Smackdown in Cherokee Town" and they compete for 3 days to see who can catch the most fish. Of course, up until 2 years ago, the women were doing our womanly duty of watching the kids. Now that the kids are older, they both go on the fishing trip with the boys and WE GET TO HAVE A LADIES ONLY SPA WEEKEND!!! This will be our 2nd annual ladies trip while our men are out fishing for the trophy.
To go along with this annual tradition, my hysterical brother sends out an e-mail every year to "announce" the trip and get us all excited about it. We get a guy e-mail with the fishing competitor list and a girl e-mail with the spa participator list. I had to post this year's e-mail about our ladies trip because I literally about peed my pants and was doubled over laughing so hard that Matt thought I couldn't breathe...and I really could not.
I wanted to share this e-mail so you could laugh along with us. If you know my family, this is no surprise. If you do not know my family, you will probably wish you did after this. :) The best part is dedicated to my sweet mother...who lives for massages. Last year after her massage, my sister-in-law and I saw her wandering around the spa in a trance with hair like Michael Myers. After we fell over laughing, we checked on her to make sure she was ok. She looked like a mental hospital escapee...for reals. She REALLY enjoyed her massage and evidently her hair did too. ;)
Well...enjoy this e-mail from my brother. He truly missed his calling in life....
What happens when 3 women converge upon the quiet, sleepy town of Asheville, NC….complete and utter CHAOS!
