Girls Weekend

OK so as some of you know I went on a girls weekend with my sisters and mom this past week. We went up to BYU for Women's Conference. The Conference is Thursday and Friday all day and then we were staying in Salt lake on Saturday to have a day to play. Wed afternoon we headed to the airport to fly to Las Vegas and then on to SLC. When we got to the airport the flight was delayed an hour, no biggy, or so we thought. When the time came, they loaded us onto the plane and then kept us there for another hour and then had us get off again. There was a bad wind storm in Las Vegas and they weren't letting planes land. We told them just to skip Vegas and go straight to SLC but they didn't think they could do that. anyway about 3 hours later then expected we got on our way. Well during all this time of waiting I started to get a migraine. Its starts with getting holes in my vision. then moves on to pain in my head and numbness in strange parts of my body like one arm or half my face and my tongue. (I know weird) So then it moves really into my head and I can't think straight. I hate this part because I can hear and see but can't comprehend anything that is going on. Not fun! Its a good thing that I wasn't going on this trip alone and that I didn't have Tolson with me. So anyway we got on our way and headed to Vegas. Well the flight was horribly bumpy and just before we landed I couldn't take it anymore. I tossed my cookies. I have never done this before and really it wasn't that bad. I think my body had just had enough. SO we hobble off the plane and head for the bathroom and then have to get right back on. the second part went better but still not fun. My head was feeling better but oh man did I feel like CRAP!!! we got to SLC at about 1 ish and then headed down to Provo. by the time we got into our dorms and into bed it was almost 2:30. Not a fun day for a sick and tired pregnant lady. Needless to say I slept in the next morning and missed the first session! so worth it. Here are some fun pictures of the weekend.

This is me and my sisters and mom. The flowers were amazing. Sorry about the closed eyes. there were several cameras going at once. In order, left to right, top to bottom: Kelli, Treisa, Michelle, Me, Juli, Ida and Mom.
Saturday we got Hot Stone pedicures. I only get to do this with my sisters on our girls weekends and it is so fun and so worth it. the only problem was that it was cold and everyone was wearing closed toed shoes. We wondered all over the mall trying to find some cheap flip flops to buy so we didn't mess up our nice pretty toes!!! Don't you love the foam ones they gave us.

We toured the conference center and the Beehive house. What a cool place to see. Maybe some day I can get to be there for conference.

This is Treisa, Ida, Me and Michelle at one of the classes. We learned a lot and enjoyed being there together. In some of the classes they had tables set up and had service projects going on during the talks. We helped make memory boxes for moms that have a baby that dies at birth, Quilts, and Procedure dolls.
We had such a great time together and learned a lot. I am so glad I have an amazing Husband that lets me get away sometimes and refresh with my sisters. I am also sooo glad I have sisters I get along with, even my sister-in-laws feel like my real sisters and I can't imagine not having them in my family. I can't wait to see what we plan for next years girls weekend.
