girls weekend

Filed under: friends, me, twilight — Jana @ 4:15 pm

I have this really awesome group of girl friends.  img_2638

We have sewing night every other week to escape mommy hood for a few hours.  We pretend to sew or do other things crafty but really we just get together to gab.  Once a year we do a sewing night on steroids and ditch our kids and husbands and go away for the weekend.  This year we went to Huntington Beach.  Eve couldn’t come this year and we really missed her.

We ate lots of delicious treats,img_2636

did pedicures,img_2637

read magazines, and talked until the wee hours of the morning.

Here we are trying to make the cankles go away. img_2632

Since no houses in huntington have AC, my ankles were like coffee cans almost the entire weekend.

We got to watch a bootleg copy of Twilight on DVD, and yes Edward is still swoon-worthy even when he’s a little fuzzy. edward-and-bella

Then me and the other preggos almost put ourselves into labor by shopping all day.  It was really fun, and exhausting. I think every mom needs a weekend away to remember that she still a fun chick and not just the maid.  I am so glad I have a group of down girls to do that with.  I really love my beautiful, funny girlies.  We were even told by one of the store clerks that we should be on a reality show.  I agree… I am always super entertained by the antics that go on.


Luckily Chantel sent me these pictures so that I had something to document the weekend with, because of course, when Lee went to get a new battery for my camera, the dude gave him the wrong one.  So still no camera for me at the moment.



  1. Dude – I’m so missing that table of junk food right now. I wish I had taken more advantage of it – or at least lifted some before I took off with Wendy. :) And look out Real Housewives of Orange County – the Mormon Housewives would be so much cooler.

  3. Aw cute – looks like you guys had tons of fun. I changed your link name on my blog :) Sorry, I used to have it on private but then went public again so that more fam & friends could find us and I didn’t think about that. Xo

  4. That sounds like so much fun. It is so great that you have such a fantastic network of friends. I can’t wait to see your little guy…. hopefully we can come down and see him after he is born.

  5. It really was such a fun trip. Thanks again for being our driver too. P.S. that pic of the Twilight scene got me hot and bothered all over again!

  6. I’m so jealous right now!!!! I just was talking to my man about how I need some girl time. I have a lot of girlfriends, but we don’t do girl time EVER!! I need that in my life right now, BAD. Women need other women to pal around with sometimes. I’m so glad you have that. You’ve got the best friends ever. Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend.

  11. I guess I need to spend more time with you Jana. I couldn’t pick out your toes! What fun though! And, best of luck in the next week or so…we are working on a quilt and surely excited for the arrival of that little boy!

  12. Oh that’s easy… Mine are the red toes that are swollen up like sausages:).

  14. I am so glad we have started the tradition. So much fun to get away. And that pic of Edward…holy crap. Whoever said it got them all hot and heavy…amen to that.

  15. I’m glad you got to have a fun getaway weekend with the girls, looks like a great time!!

    And your legs are nothing! When I was pregnant with Lucy (super huge in the summer when its 120 degrees) my legs swelled SO bad my ankles turned into cankles and I even got stretch marks on them! My poor calves and thighs…. I haven’t swelled this time and the stretch marks are fading but dang, I will NEVER have my last months of pregnancy be during the summer again. I couldn’t even wear my wedding ring for like 3 months!! So be thankful for no beautiful leg stretch marks!!
