Why I love being a sister - a daughter - a girl!

Painting nails? Gabbing? Facial Masks? Crazy Hair styles? Jewelry Making? Shopping till dropping? There's no WAY guys get to have this much fun!
This year was our year for our traditional sister retreat - and mom got to come this time, too! We had so much fun and I tried to cherish every moment with these amazing women since I won't get to be around them as much :( Good thing we all have unlimited minutes!!!
We started the retreat on Saturday night (the 26th) with dinner at Chilies, which was wonderful - and the molten lava dessert (to die for!!). Then it was off to the Extended Stay America Hotel, where we found out that there was no oven :( BUT it did not daunt us. Especially Trisha & Tiffany - they were the cooks and every meal was wonderful! That night we stayed up late gabbing, pampering each other (foot rubs, brushing hair), taking crazy pictures, and just enjoying each other.
Sunday we went to Trisha's Sacrament meeting - and then to her house for naps & making the pie for the fruit pie. Then it was back to the hotel for a mini-lesson out of the Ensign, BBQ chicken lunch, jewelry-making (beaded watch bands, necklaces, earrings), and watching movies (You Again & 4 Christmases). We also painted nails & did masks that night :)
Monday was breakfast at Jamba Juice (thanks mom!) and a trip up to the Park City Outlets. I got some much-needed new running shoes & we found a few good deals.
Thanks goes to the hubbies for watching the kiddos so their wives can have some down time.
All-in-all, it was a perfect weekend with some of my all-time favorite women in the entire world.
