A couple of months ago, Garth suggested I arrange a girl’s weekend for myself. Amazing, I know. I’m pretty sure he was prepping me for the fact that he is going to go to Nevada for a week long golf tournament, but it really didn’t matter. I gathered some friends and we decided to go to Seattle to shop and see Cirque du Soleil.
Jill, Heather and I left on Friday morning and we picked up my sister-in-law Amy up along the way. We shopped for hours at the Marysville outlets and had so much fun! The best part was not having to worry about snacks, potty breaks, tantrums, or anything like that. We went to a yummy Mexican place for dinner,
then to Heather’s parents’ house. We had this beautiful place all to ourselves because her parents are on a mission right now. We watched a chick flick and stayed up WAY past our bedtimes :)
The next morning, after an “Insanity” workout and a couple of chores for Heather’s parents, it was off for more shopping. I thought it would be fun to drive Garth’s Tourag, but by the end of the day, it was looking like we needed the Subruban!
We then headed to Redmond and checked into our hotel.
And of course, modeled some of our favorite purchases…love Jill’s hot new high heels!
Then we were off to dinner and the show. I saw Cirque once in Vegas but this was a new experience. “Amaluna” was held in Maymoor park and was held in a huge tent! I was so surprised! It gave it more of a circus feel but the show was every bit as amazing as the one in Vegas. The performers took my breath away!!! I was in awe at what they could do!
This was the stage at intermission. Not a great picture and then I got reprimanded for taking pictures, oops!
Sunday morning, we went to a church right by the temple. Afterwards, we walked around the temple grounds, took pictures, and delayed the inevitable end to our fun weekend.
I think this might need to be a new tradition!!!
