Cher's 40th Birthday Girls Weekend to Scottsdale

I have the greatest girlfriends in the world! Due to circumstantial conflicts (i.e... 5 kids in 4 years) my dream trip of going to Italy for my 40th birthday has been postponed. A girl's weekend was the perfect substitute, and we opted for Scottsdale for many practical reasons (warm in January, a little easier to get to, etc.). Eight of us were able to come, and a few others tried but couldn't swing it, but they were missed. Here is the group: from L to R it's Liz, me, JJ, Holly, Michelle, Caroline, Sarah, Tiffany. THANK YOU so much for flying in from DC, Colorado, California and Utah, you guys! I felt very loved, and it was seriously the perfect girly-weekend (food, sleep, shopping, makeovers, movies, girl chat, blow-outs, massage-ish thingy's).
Candy store with over-the-top huge candy. Matt loves licorice (though he's more of a Red Vines guy than a Twizzlers, but I still took this shot for him to text him while I was gone).
Appointments at the "Dry Bar" were really fun.
I wish I could remember the name of this restaurant - is it True Food or something like that? Anyway, all healthy and organic clever combinations. And, yes, Liz did get me/us some bad-for-you cakes, as needed! Thanks, Liz!

Thanks for making that weekend so memorable, ladies! I love you all more than you know and miss you like crazy. Hope to see you all again, soon!
