Weekend Tell-All

Well if it were up to me, I'd still be in Park City shopping and nibbling on my pumpkin pie cheesecake! But... I guess all good things have to come to an end, so here are the pictures from our weekend get-away. Please feel to add your comments! I love it when you add your stories... {SARA - especially you. You always have some good commentary!}

Here we are at our first destination at the Cheesecake factory. So far, so good. No damage on our wallets yet, nobody is throwing up yet, car sickness isn't WAY out of control yet... yeah... we're doing good.

This is after our shopping trip when we were all pooped and had shopped till we nearly dropped! It was a fun filled day and we were exhausted... but the good news was, we had talked Jaimi and Michelle into staying the night!

Bad news was, we were starting to get a little fragile at this point. Sharla and I had already been near barfing - both in the front seat of the car - due to extreme motion sickness. Poor Sara wanted to move cars since we kept rolling down the windows, had sweat beading up on our foreheads, and continually wondered if we were going to throw up.

I was feeling some hypothermia set in at this point... since I had dressed for St. George weather instead... {little tiny sandals and capris!} Thank goodness Whitney found these adorable knit hats at Banana Republic to keep us warm... and that Aero had some super comfy sweats for us all to buy. They did a whole lot better at keeping us warm than the little shorts that Sharla and I brought for p.j's. {duh}

We started showing off our goods that we had all purchased at the outlets, and this picture makes me LAUGH, because it looks like Sara is having a second baby shower for cute little Kade! :) {Which, if you would have seen all the clothes she bought him, you would have thought it WAS a second baby shower for him!} ha ha ha!

Before we headed out for a late night dinner at Baja Cantina, this was about the time that Michelle started to NOT feel right and needed something to make her feel better. Unfortunately, she chewed {what the?} an ibuprofen pill on an empty stomach and she quickly turned for the worse. We got to the restaurant and quickly ordered her a Dr. Pepper - hoping that would cure her symptoms... but she was out the door... up-chucking all over the road.

We were all trying to diagnose her. Was it the piggy flu? Was it the regular flu? Was it just because she needed her thyroid medicine? {Oh what loving friends we are!} There was no fever, so we ruled out the swine flu pretty quickly and figured it was something else. Unfortunately though, that meant we were back to Plan A, which was that Michelle and Jaimi were going back home for the night and wouldn't be staying up for the LATE night party at the condo! BUMMER!!! This is all of us eating dinner... while Michelle is outside feeling sick... {poor girl!}

Once we got back to the condo and in our jammies, we realized we weren't in our 20's anymore! LOL! We got to watch Sharla inject herself with her crazy antibiotics for her bone infection... we were yawning at 10:35... we were entertained with Whitney's sniffles for about 45 minutes AFTER she took her Sudafed medicine... and I fessed up about all my anxieties. I think Jill and Sara were the only "normal" ones during the late night condo experience. {Although these days, I'm pretty convinced that "normal" is just a setting on a dryer!}

During all of the late night talking, laughing, chit-chatting, catching up and giggling... we added something to it that we normally don't do that made it even SWEETER... {and honestly girls, I wish it was something we could add to every single GIRLS NIGHT OUT!} It's called PUMPKIN PIE CHEESECAKE!!!! {Oh my yummy!!!} I think we all had to eat our treats in installments... I finished mine off at my house today just before writing this, and I can't wait to go back up there! It was the yummiest thing I've had in ages!

This really was an amazing weekend getaway! I wish it would have been longer, I wish everybody would have been there... and gosh dang-it, I wish there wouldn't have been a big explosion by my head in the middle of the night! LOL! {You had to be there... and Sara, it was NOT a dream! ha ha!}

Thank you Sara for planning it all, especially in the middle of moving into your new house! You are awesome and we all appreciate it! Oh, you have NO idea how we appreciate it! :)
