Annual Girls Trip to Park City

We went to Park City again this year and it was so much fun. Rachelle, Wendy, Tina, Alison, Nancy, Evelyn and I drove up and stayed in a condo overnight on Friday night. We played games...pretty silly games, and they ate some yummy food. I say 'they' because I am on a special diet right now. They also went swimming and we watched a movie. The parts I liked the most was the laughing. I haven't laughed that much in a long time. They all crack me up! The next morning (which came really fast after staying up past 2:00 AM.) we hit the outlets for some memorial day weekend shopping. I found some really good deals. I made a list and promised myself I would stick to it this year. I only had $30 to spend on the kids. I got 4 t-shirts, 5 onesies, 1 pair of shorts, 1 pair of church pants, 1 super cute dress, a pair of flip-flops and 1 pair of shoes. All for just under 30 bucks! not bad eh? The only thing I got that wasn't on my list was the super cute dress. But can you really pass up a dress for $2.99, seriously. After we shopped for a while, we went to lunch at subway, but only some of us ate Subway. Some ate leftover pizza and breakfast food and I brought my own lunch from home. After that, 3 of us went to get pedicures. I wasn't one of them though, I just wasn't in the mood to spend 30 bucks on my feet yesterday. So while they got their feet done, Tina, Nancy, Alison and I continued shopping. I bought myself some new jewelry and 3 new undershirts that were much needed. After the girls came back, we continued to shop and by that time Alison and I were pretty bored with the shopping so we went back to her car and chatted. It was really fun to sit and hangout with Alison. She is awesome. When everyone was finally done shopping, we drove back to SLC and went to dinner at the Olive Garden. The best part about dinner was when Nancy was talking about the waitress using the coupons we had and said something like "Well, if we don't get the discount, her tip is going to go WAY down." and the waitress was right behind her. I laughed so hard I cried. When dinner was through we drove to the Gateway and hung out until we were going to go to Keys on Main, a piano bar with dueling pianos. Around 8:30PM we headed over to the bar. Unfortunately when we got there, Wendy realized she had forgotten her Drivers license and didn't have any other form of picture ID. You wouldn't believe what Rachelle said to the bouncer to get her into the bar. she said "Well, can we just have her husband take a picture of her license and send it to her on her phone and then we can show it to you?" HAHAHA. The bouncer just laughed at us. Then his manager came over and he explained to the manager what was going on. The manager informed us that he just can't let her in the bar because if a cop came in and asked to see her ID and she didn't have it, he would be charged a $1500 fine. Some of the girls were pretty mad, but I understand it. I mean, it IS the law. We are just a bunch of girls from Tooele who don't usually go to places where ID's are necessary. So, instead of going to the piano bar, we went to Maggie Moo's instead for some ice cream. We stayed for well over an hour just talking and laughing. Then, when it was close to 10:30 we headed home. It was a super fun trip.

My favorite story...We were in the Shopko parking lot when Evelyn was cleaning off her windshield but the wipers and windshield washer fluid wasn't really working. So Nancy said "maybe it needs some air." meaning turn on the defroster. Evelyn said "oh, good idea" but didn't turn on the air, then she says "HOLD ON!" and guns it toward the store. I almost peed my pants. it was so funny. She did get some air on there.
I forgot to take my camera, so hopefully my friends will share their pictures with me. I will post them when I get a chance.

Sounds like a great weekend.
Question on your poll? Do the people who voted No actually workout? I work out seven days a week, I usually do Yoga on Sunday. The disc I have takes over an hour and a half and Sunday mornings are quiet around here, I can see not going to the gym, but I love to get moving and always so something everyday of the week. Walk, lift, cardio, yoga, stretching, biking, etc, Everyday something to get the blood pumping,

I'm not sure if they workout since it is anonymous. Randy and I disagree about it and that is why I put the poll on the blog. I don't think it is appropriate, and I workout most days. He doesn't see anything wrong with working out at home on Sunday. I do like to go on walks on Sundays with the family, but I wouldn't consider that a workout.

It sounds like you had a great time. Did Randy enjoy the time with the kids as much as you did with your friends? I'm glad you have a fun group of friends that you can do crazy things with.

I love the part about not being able to get into a bar. I guess it was not meant to be. Maybe you guys needed to hike up your skirts and show a little more cleavage to get passed the bouncer.

I need to ask this question "what in the world are LDS girls'/women/ mothers of young children doing going to a BAR!! I believe that all of you were taught better then that!!
What are you going to do the day your sons/daughters decide that they are going to a bar, you won't be able to tell them no if you did it yourself! Example is everything! Sorry for the lecture but I believe all of you know better or at least should!

Michelle said...

A piano bar isn't really a bar, plus you technically can still say you've never been to a bar since you didn't get in.
Sounds like you had lots of fun! Getting away for a night is so great to get recharged to deal with all the everyday problems we all deal with. I'm glad you could go and have fun.

Glad to see the Pharisees are still alive and well. Set them straight with your righteous judging!!!

(I'd tell Cenny she should always carry ID with her, going to a bar or not - it is good practice)
