Fun in the SUN

This marks our 1st year of a sisters trip and we already can't WAIT for next years. We decided this year to meet up in Indio, CA, which was a reasonable meeting place for all of us.
As soon as we got in, it was time for the pampering to begin...
We all had an hour long massage and it was GREAT! {Okay, I lie... there were a few times I had to hold my breath because the pressure was a little TOO intense and downright painful. But other than that, it was great!}
We then checked into the condo...
Worldmark @ Indio, CA
This location was BEAUTIFUL. I would have NEVER guessed I was in the middle of the desert- a true oasis!

We enjoyed our dinner around the jacuzzi and then went back to the room where we stayed up till 1:30 chatting. {This makes me laugh even writing that. I remember when 1:30am was just the beginning of our nights. Ya, NOT anymore- that's what having kids (and old age) will do to you!}

We woke up the next morning, headed to the gym and then came home for breakfast.

The cooks:
{Jen, Anna, Jess}

Then headed to the pool for some sun
{note to self: NEVER wear spf 4 on areas that have not seen sun in 10+ yrs}

After laying out, we went straight to get our pedi's and eat lunch

Sushi @ Frankie's
{Annalee, Jessica, Jennifer}

Quail eggs anyone?!?

My lunch:
Most delish tempura shrimp rolls EVER

We went to the grocery store to find the most AMAZING candy/bulk food isle.
And YES, the idiom 'a kid in the candy store' was a literal experience for us- overwhelming and awesome!

The rest of the trip was spent at the condo in the lazy river/pools, laying out and eating...
when we got too hot, we cooled off with some Pina Colada slushies from the Market

The meals we made were SO simple and SO good
and of course, what is a celebration without "CHEERS"?!?

Store bought pizza and salad never looked SO good...

On our final night, we headed to the Mexicali Cafe for dinner

Saw a beautiful sunset
ate to our little hearts content

Can't wait for Sisters Weekend 2012...
I feel so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful family...

Love you babe and that AMAZING fam of yours!
PS- i LOVE this song. It's one of those songs that the beat alone makes me so incredibly happy. Then the lyrics- LOVE IT!

"This is just a journey
Drop your worries
You are gonna turn out fine.
Oh, you'll turn out fine.
Fine, oh, you'll turn out fine...
I know it's hard, know its hard,
To remember sometimes,
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh...
Only rainbows after rain
The sun will always come again.
Its a circle, circling,
Around again, it comes around again.

"Keep Your Head Up" -Andy Grammer
