Pam and Her Posse
















That's the name Mitch gave to the Women's Conference group which consisted of Toni Berry (thanks for suggesting a trip!), my sister, Julie, and sister in law Becky. We had a blast at Women's Conference! We were accused a few times of acting like a group of 14 year olds but hey, being 14 is a blast, isn't it? We stayed in the same dorms I stayed in when I went to college and so it was a little deja vu. We laughed, we got spiritual highs, we enjoyed a great concert, we shopped and we ate and ate and ate. Especially me. No one could keep up with me and all the junk I ate. It was great but I now have an extra 2 lbs. on me. Ouch!! I got my favorite Heath Bar fudge at BYU, twice. I got BYU mint brownies 4 times, ate 2 caramel apples, ate 2 huge frosted heart cookies, chocolate pretzels and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. We had Costa Vida pork salads for lunch twice (I was thrilled to see them set up at the Marriott Center!). We also ate at Noodles, Bajio, and PF Changs. Can you tell I love to eat on trips???

The talks and Spirit were great. It's always nice to get a little motivation to do better. Linds was there for a friend's funeral and it was great to see her if even just for a short time. I loved spending time with Alex and Mitch who we saw for dinner every night and spent most of Saturday and Sunday with. They are such a cute couple.
On Friday night we went to the show to see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. We watched a little of it and walked out. It was horrible!! Totally about sex and not what we felt like watching after being on a spiritual plane. Don't waste your time or money on it. There were several groups of women walking out. We figured they were all Women Conferencers also.

At one point on our trip I had an epiphany-I was surrounded by most of my favorite women in the world! Who could ask for more????

Love all the junk you ate!! I would have gained like 10 pounds so you are lucky to only gain 2!! Toni said she had a great time and couldn't wait to do it again. I
hope she got some rest too, because she has my kids next week!! :) I love the pic of you 2.

I told Kelly if you come for Natalie's McCartney's wedding you are welcome to stay here. We are about 5 minutes from the temple.
