It's Never a Dull Moment.

Girls weekend comes once a year. Every October. And it has become one of my favorite traditions!

I get so excited to spend time with the girls. Shopping. Giggling. Laughing. Eating. Movies. Tuacahn. Orange Peel. and SO much more.

This year we went to Tuacahn's production of the Little Mermaid, and Grease!

Coincidentally, both were HUGE childhood memories.

Kayla, my big sis, and I used to share a room (and a bed) growing up. Almost every night she would sing The Little Mermaid to me...something I'll never ever forget.

And Grease. Well that was just a family fave. I can't even count how many times we watched that movie. Classic.

1st Day

On the way down we stopped in Cedar to eat @ The Pizza Factory. Mmmm

We went shopping first thing. Even before checking in to our hotel...of course.

Kayla and I trying desperately to find my dad in this store...ha ha.
And the annual "Favorite Things" exchange.
Look how excited they are;)

Ooh me too!

Kayla opened her Birthday surprise...(Her B-Day was the following Monday so we celebrated)

Hee hee.

Now. I'm gonna attempt to explain this. But, it may sound extremely odd. Just a fair warning.

So...Once upon a time I started calling Kayla "Bushwacker"...I dunno why...I just give everyone nicknames and usually they are different every time. But, this one stuck. Unfortunately for her. Then, I shortened it to "Bush". Yes, "Bush". Sounds a little vulgar this day and age, but it has been the source of many great laughs. Anyway, Mom decided to make some T-shirts, after all she is the big 3-0, that said something about "Bush" on them. When she asked what I wanted mine to say..I said "Celebrate the Bush." Mom's said "Happy Birthday to our Bush-Wacker" and Kayla's said "Kiss me, I'm Dirty 30!" As you can see below, there is a pic of Kayla with a bush...ha ha. Priceless.

Arriving @ Tuacahn for "The Little Mermaid."

Yes, I have braces.

2nd Day

How appropriate is this considering we went to see Little Mermaid?! Seriously! I have my very own "dinglehopper!"

Sportin' the T's at our favorite spot- ORANGE PEEL!;)
No pics of Grease or of our trip to the movie Footloose, but we did manage to end the night with a 3 hour stay in the ER! Poor Kayla had bruises that kept forming up her arms that were swollen, and hard. We were worried so we thought we would be safe and take her in. Good news: all emergent tests came back negative!Last Day

Oh, and just because we had a few inches here and there to spare in the Enclave, we thought we would fill up and do some more shopping.

We may need an intervention...

We love movies. So we stopped on the way home to see "The Help." Highly recommend, but it's a tear jerker! Even for me.

Kayla gets 1 piece...

I get a handful.

And Ma get's the bucket...;)

Aww...what a perfect trip. There are many things in life I could live without...but these 2 I could not. I may be vulgar and inappropriate at times (pics not blog worthy!), but I love that I can comfortably be ME when I'm with them. XO
