Today we are all together enjoying our annual sisters trip....
Every year all us sisters get together, away from our hubbys and kids, and spend a few days together just hanging out, laughing, eating (a must on any vacay) and just being silly. Its a tradition that was started roughly 6 years ago.
Thanks to our lovely sister Liesl this tradition got started. It all started when she was caught going 103 mph in a 70 mph zone in California. Instead of just paying the ticket through the mail, she was required to come to California and see a judge (she lived in Vegas at the time). Well she didn't want to have to go to California all by herself so she convinced a few of us (Tiff-Heidi-Tenille) to join her and do a little shopping while we were there.
So on a whim the 4 of us left our kids and hubby's and headed down to beautiful S. Cali. We ended up getting a hotel that was located right next to a freeway and an airport (so loud) and as if the noise wasn't bad enough the room had been smoked in heavily and it gave us all headaches because it was so overpowering. But we had the time of our lives. We found an amazing mall while we were there and had so much fun. When we got back we decided it was so much fun that we needed to do it more often.
Every year since then we have made it a point to get together at least once a year with no kids and just have fun. We usually shop, catch up on scrap booking/crafts/blogs, eat and eat some more and just giggle. We also love to take model/silly shots.
Anyways it is all a ton of fun and its nice to get to sleep in and rejuvenate a little. Our hubby's are great to accommodate this trip every year. Although I think my kids actually enjoy me leaving for a few days because there are no rules when dad is in charge. Anyways we will be enjoying ourselves this year in the great city of Salt Lake. You can bet Ikea will be visited as well as Hobby Lobby. Of course we will eat ourselves crazy. I usually gain about 5 pounds on these trip but they are worth it.
Seriously life doesn't get much better than being from a family with 6 girls + 2 sister in laws and 1 amazing mother.
Here are some snapshots from last years trip to St. George. Of course once we all recover from this years trip we will be sure to post some pictures.
