You know you are with some FUN company when they show up with custom T shirts to commemorate your trip together. How fun! We knew it was going to be a great week.

We stayed in a beeeautiful home where we wanted for nothing. Gorgeous bedrooms, a full kitchen, a pool and hot tub in the backyard and a van for us to use as we pleased. We relaxed, we shopped, we ate out, (Cafe Rio, will you be mine?!) we laughed... it was ah-mazing - truly a recipe for 6 of the funnest days I've ever had!

 Drinking my Henry's
(It was snowing at home!)

 Visiting the Mesa Arizona temple. (Not the best photo but it's one of the few we got all together.)

 Me and my sissy!

Don't touch the cactus!  
(This is funny if you've seen the video my husband posted of his recent trip to Arizona - where he and his brother poked their fingers over and over when inspecting the cactus. BOYS!)

Sharon has the pictures of our shopping trips. We did some serious damage at Target (like seriously, who doesn't love that place!) and thoroughly enjoyed our day at San Tan outdoor mall. Including the trek Sharon and I took to Ulta to purchase the Naked palette they had on hold for me. The rest of the group was at Dillards shopping for dresses so we thought we'd "POP" over to Ulta quickly. We didn't realize until we were about 15 minutes into the walk what we had signed up for. Turns out Dillards to Ulta is .9 of a mile so with the trip there and back we walked nearly 2 miles (that's almost 3 1/2 kms for us Canadians!!) to get that eyeshadow! Two miles in the Arizona sun with less than appropriate footwear, I might add. Sharon got 5 blisters, bless her. I better love it.

It was an incredible trip, full of friends and laughter. It was so nice to reconnect with these amazing women. We're already planning the next get away. 

*Come back to see the rest of my haul on my first trip to Ulta!*


  1. "Ahh, those were the days!" What a cute blog you made. It feels like it was a very long time ago; but what sweet memories we made!!
    Love you, Kiddo!

  2. Oh I miss it!!!!!!! Seeing those pictures just killed me!!! I can't believe how much fun it was. I want to be back there right now!!!! And I still can't believe you walked all that way, you poor girls!!

  3. I absolutely love Arizona! I have family in Tucson so I visit pretty regularly. Your post made me miss it!!

    Glad you had a good time :)

  4. We stayed there too. Isn't the house gorgeous and having your own pool right there, we loved it!!!! Its true you don't want for anything and you don't have to clean with you leave either!
    Thats all we did all day was swim with the kids and then ate out every night because there is so much good food down there. Good memories.


Straight up now tell me...
