Josh has been incredibly busy since starting the Physicians Assistant program in January. His spring schedule was mild, but the summer session is putting his study schedule on overdrive. It's been a running joke - him studying 20 hours a day and me working from my couch. I always like to remind him it's still work and I've paid my dues! Only two more years of schooling to go..
When the Windsor Court offered a staycation for the both of us, I jumped at the opportunity. My oldest sister used to bring us here for tea when we were younger! Lots of good memories. Fortunately, Josh had a day off during the Fourth of July weekend so he could really unwind and relax.
And boy did we. Some staycations, we'd explore and wander and drink and be exhausted from all the good times. But, this time we actually stayed in the hotel for the most part. Briefly after checking in, we hopped over to The Spa at Windsor Court for facials and massages. I had the Classic Court Facial and absolutely loved the natural and organic products they used! Left with my face feeling much cleaner.
We then walked a few blocks to the French Quarter for dinner at the new 9 Roses cafe and dessert at Salon by Sucre. I'd love to say we went crazy but we didn't! We were so relaxed and enjoyed the rest of the night watching TV. The next morning, however, we had the best room service I've ever had. The breakfast was killer --- eggs benedict with crabmeat, brûléed grapefruit, fresh fruit, and a hearty omelet. All the fixings! Needless to say, we returned home feeling pretty spoiled with life.
