I sneaked off to Arizona this weekend to check out the Tucson Gem Show. Afterwards, I stopped in Phoenix to visit gorgeous sister bloggers Jennifer and Megan. We had dinner (I had “Voodoo Tuna”) during which I attempted to drink for four: myself, Megan, Jennifer and Jennifer’s bun in the oven. Considering the baby was extremely underage, I probably could’ve have gotten away with drinking for three.
After dinner, I dragged them back to my insanely decorated, cruise-ship-like hotel, where I made them pose with a statue of a Native American woman. When I first saw that statue, I thought it was a nun, which seemed like a mighty peculiar thing to have at a hotel.
If you click to enlarge the photo of these three cuties (that’s the nun/Indian on the left, Megan in the middle and Jennifer on the right), you can see that Megan is wearing my Queen of Scots necklace and Jennifer is wearing my Isabella necklace. The Indian nun didn’t get to wear anything.
I interrogated the ladies about their families and discovered Jennifer got engaged to her husband two weeks after they met. Two weeks! It takes me longer than that to do…well…nearly anything. And Megan got married at 19. These women know what they want and get right to it. No dithering for them!
After I finished drinking for five (I added Jennifer’s husband Dave to my list of people I was drinking for), we went out front to take photos in front of the hotel’s over-the-top fountain. As I tried to position my camera for a self-portrait of the three of us, Jennifer said, “What are you doing? It’s not even facing us! It’s pointed over that way!”
Tomorrow, I’ll post some photos from Tucson.
Thanks again for the great time, ladies!
UPDATED TO ADD: Okay, okay. Here’s a photo of the three of us together.
