LA Baby!

I didn't go into labor, much to the relief of my 10 honorary birthing coaches...we learned the hard way that a Subway located in a gas station is never a good idea...we laughed until we almost peed our pants in the McDonald's parking lot...after 3 failed attempts at good food we finally had a decent meal...we didn't get attacked by our sketchy "6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot punch" hotel neighbor (who ended up being a church going family guy)...we shopped more in one day than I have the entire past month...thankfully the world didn't come to an end on May 21st as predicted by the crazies...we enjoyed the magic of Hollywood with shoulder to shoulder sweaty tourists and creepy guys dressed up trying to make a buck...we thought 11 obnoxious hot mamas would be enough to get us front row seats at the Jay Leno show, but we were lucky to barely get in and enjoy our nosebleed seats...We were hoping they would secure the likes of Justin Timberlake, Usher or The Beibes on the Tonight Show.  Instead we got Kirstie Alley, whoop....I forget that unlike Gilbert, every other woman in LA is not pregnant and I can't count how many times strangers commented on my belly (like the lady who asked me how I got pregnant and then continued to lecture me, if only my fingers weren't too swollen to wear my wedding ring)...not getting cited for jay walking across 4 lanes of traffic in front of a cop is always a good thing....eating Crumbs cupcakes in the middle of the night after some questionable Mexican food is not a good thing...I really tried to not pull the pregnancy card but when my friends volunteered a foot massage I didn't hesitate for a second and it was heavenly....contrary to popular belief, you do not get sick from fettucini alfredo that has been sitting in the car for hours and then reheated in a gas station microwave (we had some serious food issues on this trip) sum it up: we slept in, ate like crap, shopped our hearts (and feet) out, we chose girl talk over sleep every night and we have enough inside jokes to keep us laughing for a loooong time now. I had the best time with these girls and can't wait until the next girls trip!

Ohhhh if only that pizza were as good as it looks.

Um, perfect summary! you always do this so well that I really do want to copy and paste. Really really. Like I probably will.

You are the best planner, so glad you made it happen. It was so fun. And thank you so very much for not going into labor. So thoughtful of you. You have my complete permission to do it now though.

That looks like so much fun! You are quite the trooper. I'm glad you have good friends that will even massage your feet for you.

Look at all those hot mommas out on the town! I love this! Girls trips are so fun and so necessary! That pizza slice is as big as your head!
You gals are too cute.
