OMG, this weekend is going to be so fun!!!
My best friend, the one who has inoperable cancer? I'm going to go see her. She finished up with radiation about 2 weeks ago, and has yet to start chemotherapy. So she's feeling pretty good right now. She wants to go do something fun, so we've been e-mailing back and forth about it.

We're going to have a girls weekend. She's picking me up from the Oakland airport, and we're driving to Napa Valley. First, we are going to The Silverado Resort & Spa for a 'Touch of Paradise', which (for us) will be a 50 minute Ginger Body Wrap, followed by a 50 minute Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage (for me), and a 50 minute Tui-Na massage (for her). Then, we'll go check into our hotel motel, The El Bonita Motel (so we can save money for spa treatments & outlet shopping), then do some wine tasting, then go out to a gourmet dinner (she will pick the place, she's a gourmet cook herself). The next day, we are going to a music festival at some winery she likes, which will also have a BBQ. Then, we are going to hit the St. Helen's Outlet Stores! I hear they have a Coach outlet there, and mamma needs a summer purse!

If we get a good reservation Friday, we'll eat a little more economically Saturday (or vice versa), then wake up late Sunday, go to lunch, and then she'll drive me back to the airport.

Looks like I'll be needing those 2 collapsible suitcases I bought!

Awesome! :) I'm glad you're going to spend time with her, and such a great way to spend it, too!

Excellent. Just and idea, take loads of pictures of every silly thing you can imagine. On those bad days when she can't get out cause of the chemo, mail her something silly.

When I was sick, my favorite thing was mail/postcards/etc.....

Sounds fantastic! And those pics on the spa site? I might have just drooled a little...
