What do you get when you take four crazy ladies, subtract children and husbands, and add California with lots of Sprinkles? A fun filled girl's weekend with my crazy ladies. Now I used to tell people that I was a girl, not a lady, that sounded too old; but seeing how I really am old now I suppose the "ladies" part really does apply.
On Friday Stephanie, Dawn and I hopped into Steph's cool new car and headed to California. We had a quick stop at the outlets in Palm Springs, and then it was on to Liz's house for a much deserved Girl's Weekend. We had so much fun in the car on the way there that it didn't really even matter where we were headed, but we had even more fun once we got there.
Friday night we headed to the Cheesecake factory (our favorite) for salads and cheesecake. Then if was off to the mall for shopping, manicures and pedicures. Sounds cliche maybe, we're not exactly overly adventurous, but it was very fun and relaxing. Then Saturday was more shopping, and more eating. Did you know they have a cafe in Nordstrom? I told the girls this shows you just how much I really do shop at Wal-Mart and Target, I've never before eaten in a Nordstrom Cafe, but I did on Saturday, and it was very luxurious.
After we were done shopping we headed to Sprinkles, a cupcake bakery. Could we get more hip? Anyway we waited in the line that went out the door to pay way too much money for really yummy cupcakes. My favorite was the coconut, but I really couldn't say that any of them were bad. After cupcakes we headed to Laguna Beach for our own episode of the MTV reality show. It's just as amazing in person. We valeted it at Las Brisas and had a romantic dinner (minus the romantic part) overlooking the ocean.
It was fun girls, a memory I'll cherish, and hope to recreate yearly, maybe we'll invite the husbands one of these days. I left out all of the gossip and funny stuff to protect the innocent, but needless to say I haven't laughed so hard in a really long time. I'm trying to catch up on my sleep and save some money so I can be ready for next time!
