Vacation Theme: Nothing

I had one of the best, most relaxing vacations any mother of a hoard like mine could ask for. People asked me what we did and I would tell them...nothing. Absolutely nothing. It was so very nice. I never got bored once. I may have gained a few pounds from sitting and eating all day, but it was well worth it.

Here is a little recap of our vacation. I really didn't have a ton of pictures because we really didn't do anything beside lay out, shop, and eat. I mean, how many different views of us laying out would people want to see?

The Pool:

We would all slowly emerge from our beds, have a little breakfast, and head out to the pool. I think we were out there every day by 10:00. We went through mutiple magazines, books, and conversations. Most of the laying out didn't stop until 3:00 or 4:00 in the afternoon. It was fabulous.
The Pedicure:

I wanted a little pampering so I decided to go get a pedicure. No one wanted to join me so I went by myself and was surrounded by Asians and old ladies. Everyone looked at me weird when I pulled out my camera to do a self portrait. I guess they don't know how important blogging material is???
The Slide:

Yes, we are grown adults, but who doesn't love a fun waterslide? We had a blast and it was nice to cool off in between layout sessions.

The Shopping:

After cleaning up from the pool we would head out to the stores every night. I had carefully planned my budget, saved my money, even sold some things on KSL to plan for my shopping experience. Lets just say all my preparing didn't help much. There were just too many cute things down in SG.

The Food:

Food, glorious food. Everyone should know by now that I love food. Absolutely love it. We made some fantastic salads, dips, and sandwich stuff for lunches and dined out for dinners. We had some In & Out (4 for me actually), Jimmy Johns, Pizza Factory, Durangos, and Cold Stone. Then of course the treats and snacks at the house. I wasn't kidding when I said I gained weight on this little vacay...
It was a fabulous few days in Paradise. I wouldn't have changed a thing about it. I had a great time and got to spend a few days with the best in-laws a girl could ask for. I consider Trent's mom and sisters some of my best friends and had so much fun hanging out and laughing with them. Thanks guys! And thanks to Brad and Teri for sharing the house and letting us have a fabulous girls weekend in St. George. It was Heaven!
And a BIG thanks to Kimmy, Gary and Kristine, and Trent for watching The Hoard while I was gone. I know how hard they are and I appreciate everyone's help. Really, you guys are all amazing!!!

Oh what I would give for a vacation filled with nothingness!!! Sounds awesome! I love the grown adults on the water slide...classic! And the blue eyeshadow??? :) Glad you had such a great time, you deserve it!

Wow. That really does look like heaven! I'm sorry I had to miss all the good time, but duty called elsewhere. It looks like you guys had a great time. I can just imagine all the good convo and fun times laughing (especially with Brooke around. She's a hoot!). I'm with Steph, you deserved every minute of nothingness you enjoyed while away!

And I LOVE your hair! You look fantastic.

Kim said...

NICE! That looks like my kind of vacation. You guys always take such fun pictures and I'm really glad you got to enjoy this time off.

Those vacations are the best! I am jealous of the private pool you get to visit whenever you want. I have yet to find any pool remotely close to my house. What is summer without swimming??

Maga said...

I did make the B A B Y letters using scrap book paper and then just cutting into the bubble letter after I wrote it in pencil. I wish I could take credit for that decoration idea, but I stole it from someone else.

Mark, Steph, & Alex Toone said...

Oooh that looks fun! I wish I could take a vacation like that.

Shannon said...

Alyssa said...

Allen's said...

WOW! I could use one of those right now! Where did you get your cute green and blue swim suit?...darling!

I have been so excited for the St. George post. I think it was a perfect weekend. I don't think anyone, but a mother can understand the blessing of doing nothing. Thanks for doing all the pictures. Next year I will feel better and be alot more fun. I am so glad you think of us as some of your best friends. I hope you know we feel the same way about you. Are are a wonderful addition to the Jensen group

Jill said...

I am always so amazed and the shear amount of comments you get. It really is impressive. You probably have one of the most visited blogs ever.

This weekend was perfect and it was so fun to be down there with you. You are one of my best friends and I love how well you fit in with all of us. I am not sure how I am going to cope moving out soon. It really makes me sad to think about. I have LOVED living with you and becoming such good friends.
