Girls Weekend

This last weekend we had a Moody side of the family "Girls Weekend" in St. George. (Moody is my mom's maiden name, not that it was a gathering for cranky moody women)
THANK YOU AUNT LAURIE for setting this up, it was so much fun!
There were several condos and the main one was HUGE enough for us to all hang out and not feel like sardines (17plus) We ate yummy food, hung out watching movies and painting nails, ate yummy food, did the hot tub thing, ate yummy food, went shopping, had more yummy food, made jewelry, talked and told colorfully exagerated stories from the past and laughed till our sides hurt and tears were wetting the creases of our smiling scrunched up eyes.
I only wish Jenny and Jana were there and it would have been perfect. Next time all of the sisters will be there and we will make it a tradition to get together and have fun together.
I totally loved the chance to get away and relax in an environment made for me, fun and excitement, loud girls like me who think that they are funny, and yummy food that I barely had to do anything for, and the fact that if I wanted to stay up all night I could, and I wouldn't have to wake up early with the kids. Sleeping in, just the thought is like candy. Of course, I woke up at 8am after going to sleep at 3am. No-one else seemed to be mechanically set for 8am like me, they were all snoozing in their beds. I was so mad at myself and got up went to the bathroom so I wouldn't have that should I shouldn't I feeling when you are trying to fall asleep. If you don't get that feeling when you are trying to fall asleep, consider yourself blessed. Then I snuggled in bed and read my book until my narcolepsy took over the anxiety and I slept until 10:45am and was so excited when I woke up and completly slept through a meal and it didn't bother me one bit. Off to shopping, nothing like a good distraction to keep you from remembering you haven't eaten anything until 2:45pm I normally get majorly cranky and irritable until I have food in the tum. Nothing, it was like the shopping was feeding me. I try not to go to the store as this could be a problem. It was so fun to be with sisters, my mom and my fun cousins and aunts and just go by the fly and whatever goes goes. We embraced the changes and enjoyed the journey:)
The weekend topics included Becky's new twins and my Angenlina Jolie long hair and color. So underlining topic was about the babies we could get, the changes we had made to help ourselves feel beautiful. Pretty sad ha? Other than that, it was just plain fun together with people you miss. I'll add more pictures as I gather them from everyones cameras. For now, I just have the ones from my camera of me with my sisters and mom. I can't wait until the next girls weekend!!

I am glad you guys had fun...as my kids were screaming at me I was trying not to think about what I was missing out on! (We've gotta pay our dues right?) It sounds like a fabulous time.
