I Hear Tie Dye Is Making A Come Back


Today is the day! I am headed to California to visit my friend Dennelle. Here's a picture of the little thing:




And here are that little thing's shoes:




You see we look like we're the same size in that first picture don't we? I know this is hard to believe but that picture is an illusion, you wouldn't know that I'm over a foot taller then her from that pic would ya? Well I'm really not, we're exactly the same size. That's the truth.


She is a consultant for the company that I work for and she lives in California but flies to Utah to work here during the week. We like to have girl's night at her second home, The Marriott, during the week.




When we get together we get pretty wild, ya know, how ya do. Clockwise starting on the left is Dennelle, Lacie, Lil sis Lin, and right at the bottom of the picture is my big toe, Bertha. Bertha's always trying to steal the show, sorry bout that.






So she's visited my home and hung out with me and Albert (and she still likes us! I KNOW right?) but I have never met her hubster so today's the day. We (Dennelle, me, & Albert) are flying out this afternoon for a weekend for Harley ridin, wine tourin, shoppin (Ugh, yes she's making me go shopping!) & Swimmin.


In preparation for this weekend I went and got me a tan. A spray tan. Didn't quite go as well as I'd hoped. My hands almost look like an orange and white tie dye shirt, but I hear those are coming back in style so I think I'm okay there.


I tried to get pictures of my orange and white hands but my phone really sucks and washes everything out, so this is the best I can do.






So all you Californians need to come to Temecula this weekend and party with us. I'm talking to you Hev, Fran, Suz, Julia, Jen and everyone else! If I don't see you this weekend, I'll be back in Utah on Sunday to tell ya all about it.


Actually you probably won't hear from me until Monday because I'm sure I'll be passed out for at least a day after our flight.

I am so jealous, I've never been to California!! I hope you have a great time!

Kristina P. said...

Temecula, huh? Wow, don't get too crazy!

The last time I was in Temecula was about 6 years ago. We took a road trip and my friend had applied for a job there. He decided not to move down there though.

Rebecca Jo said...

How fun!!! a little get away! I bet she likes she'll be on her own turf!

That's amazing she flies up there for the whole week! That's a dedicated worker right there!

The stair case picture made me a little woozy - I woulda totally dropped my camera right down the center!

Hope Bertha gets to enjoy some California sunshine too! Did she get an "Orange glow" too? :)

Jon and Steph said...

Ooooh have fun!!

blueviolet said...

I have to laugh a little bit at your suntan splotchiness. You're not alone. Truuuuuust me.

Have a wonderful trip and behave yourself! I don't want to see any puking over the toilet like there was on your last trip.

THE Stephanie said...

Have fun!!

the ungourmet said...

It's so great to get together with old friends! I just had a visit from my old friend from high school. We are like you and your friend, I am 5'2" and she is almost 5'10". She squatted down like that for our picture too. Funny!

Hope you have a fine time!

Ugh! I am showing my age with that question....

JosiahsMommy said...

It sounds like a really fun trip! I'm excited to hear about it. Have a good time and try not to hate the shopping TOO much. ;-)

The Wife O Riley said...

Have a wonderful time!! Shopping should be good considering her great taste in shoes.

Isn't Temecula where Tori and Dean set up that B&B?

Always a Southern Girl said...

Thanks again for donating to my friends cause!

Julia said...

Your knuckles do look a little stranger than the other part of your hand. And there is a spotty glow about them!

May you have fun carousing without the rest of us California chicks. But remember we are all JEALOUS!

WhisperingWriter said...

Have fun!

I'm jealous. I want to go out and party! Instead I'm here with 2 kids who screech in my ears and a husband who constantly wants to get down my pants.

nicole said...

ok funny! A bunch of girls at my office went and got the spray tan also before we went to Lake Powell. I had to show them your pictures because they looked the same. Love it! Don't worry it blends in fast:)

CLUFF FAMILY said...

Hope you had fun. When do you come see me now?

Janalyn and Rob said...

I have been contemplating a spray tan, but with my super pale skin I am afraid what it will turn out like. I can't wait for the day that tan is out and pale is in! :)

Together We Save said...

I love the stairwell picture. Vey clever.

Aleta said...

California is beautiful and lovely weather right now! Have fun.... and oh, the spray on tan - at least you don't look like a zebra (which is what my Mom looked like after she tried it. hehe)

Debbie said...

I hope you have a wonderful trip and visit. I bet we will hear lots of tales when you get back:)
