Hey DUDE! Yippie ki yi yay

So I don't know how many of you have ever seen Hey Dude on Nickelodeon but it was all about some kids that worked at a Dude Ranch.

I really don't know that that has to do with anything- but I really want to to go to a Dude Ranch and that show is my only reference. A friend at school went to one with her daughter and the girl scouts and said it was fun. OK what she really said was that it was Dirty Dancing Ghetto Style Dude Ranch Fun. Yippie ki yi yay! I have been dying to go on some kind of weekend (long weekend) trip with my husband for almost a year. Last year I begged him to take me whale watching before Eliza was born. Well I have never been whale watching and I never got to go on a baby moon like I wanted. Granted, I have been asking my husband to take me rafting since the summer we met and I am still waiting. Don't worry, I have my bathing suit and suntan lotion all packed so if he springs a romantic getaway on me I am READY! So now I am on the Dude Ranch kick and I need to see if I can wrangle up some friends to go with me.

OMG!! This was my favorite show of all time when I was younger. I think it was probably the reason I took horseback riding lessons for so long. I also decided to go to sleep away camp because of the show Salute your Shorts!!

When I was in high school, someone was selling every episode of Hey Dude on ebay and I bought it (On VHS tapes)for over $100. One of these days I will be getting in on DVD just to have in case I am ever in the mood to see Ted, Brad, Melody & the whole gang!!

I am totally down to go to a dude ranch with you! Let's plan it :)

A dude ranch sounds fun! I'm not sure what a long weekend is? A getaway? These things sound familiar but I am not really sure what it is... ;)

NOt sure if I'm feeling the dude ranch thing but that could be the Braxton Hicks talking. Don't remember them with Madison. Ask me in the fall and I'll probably be all about a getaway! My parents go somewhere in Ny every November and LOVE it. I'll get the info from them.

I remember that show. Do you remember "You can do that on Television?"

Don't feel too bad. My husband never takes me anywhere either.
