Girls {much needed} Trip

Ginger and I had been talking about taking a girls trip. This meant no kids, no husbands, no big plans, just hanging out in the sun and having a relaxing vacation. And that's exactly what we did.


Of course there was a lot of pool time. Since we didn't have a pool at our house, we went and found one....and snuck in.Shhh.

We had a good laugh when a couple of 18 year old guys asked us if we "partied". Nope, not really unless it's our kids birthday party.

While at the pool, I also got stung by a bee right on the inner thigh region. It hurt, but poor bee, it wasn't her fault.

Heck, I'd sting me too if my thighs were about to squish me

We also went and got a pedicure. I had only had one once before 7 years ago right before my wedding. I liked it, but never really thought to pay the dough to get another one.

Let me just say, it was NOT worth it. Ginger had a the roughest and toughest Asian man rubbing her legs and feet raw, and I wasn't too impressed with my lady stopping every minute to answer the phone and write it her appointment book. Serves us right for going to Walmart to do this. Duh!

We wanted to do something different and so we went to Grease at the Tuachan theater. It was pretty good and I loved being in between all that red rock outdoors. At one point we thought we weren't going to be able to get tickets but we finally did and it was so worth it.

We had to wait a while to get out of the parking lot and what do you do when 3 girls have a camera?

Have a photo shoot!

We did a lot more on this trip than we have pictures of. Just to name a few things...


-Golf ball hunting

-Movie watching


-Staying up until 3 talking


-Eating...a lot

-Getting lost

-Ginger scaring me EVERYDAY

-Sleeping in


Seriously this trip was so much fun and I'm so happy that Ginger and I made this happen. Girl time was very much needed for both of us and it was the perfect getaway. Thanks Ging (and Veigels)! Until next year.
