Girl's Weekend!!!

Holy cow, I don't even know where to start. This was a dream come true. My mom planned a weekend for all my sisters & sister-in-law (we missed you sooo much Shannon!) to get together, and you have no idea how big a deal that is.
Me & Kristy, my eldest sister & one of the most beautiful people on the planet. She deserves a post of her very own.
Cydney & Jozet (have I mentioned how awesome Cyd is as a sister-wife? And how nice it is to have Jozet living closer? Even though I don't see her that much more, it's just nice to know that I could be there in an hour.)
Jozet, Carrie & my cute Mom. Some of the classiest ladies you'll ever know.
Mom, Jen & Mandy. Oh for the love! I can't even believe we all were able to get together with no kids for a whole weekend! It was amazing!

We have NEVER done this. Ever. Most of my sisters were able to make it to Mom's on Friday night, we attempted to watch The Holiday together, but it was way super late & I bailed & retreated to Abram & I's room to sleep. Mom got a condo up in Midway, near the Homestead, and the place was great, but we opted to go to my mom's ward's Women's Conference on Saturday instead.

I'm so glad we did, it was completely what I needed, although it was rather, um... challenging with Abram in tow. I was happy to conceed to Matt when he offered to take Abram home while I went about the rest of the weekend. After the conference most people went to the temple, but Abes & I stayed home & had a nap & a lovely chat with my Dad, respectively. Afterward we all met up at Joy Luck for a Chinese food feast. We pretty much had a private room & stayed & laughed our faces off for a few hours, then headed up to Gourmadise (at my insistence) and again stayed & laughed our faces off for a few hours. Then we had to run to the grocery store, but it was after midnight & so we went to the Smith's Marketplace on 400 South, and annoyed people there for a while. By the time we got up to the condo, unpacked & settled in it was like 1 am & that didn't stop us from staying up & laughing our faces off for a while longer. By 3 most people were asleep, but Jozet woke up smelling carbon monoxide & so we called the utility company & they came & banged around on the pipes for an hour or so. Very exciting night. But we all survived. Cyd & I left at 7 am to get home in time for me to nurse Abram & get us all off to church.

I was shocked that all of my sisters were able to make it, but so sad that Shannon wasn't able to. Hopefully this'll become a regular thing though.

Sounds awesome.
I've never done this either.
I"m glad you got to do it, even with your son in tow.
