Did you miss me? I missed you. Let's give us a hug here. MMMPHHHH!!!

So I know you are all eagerly awaiting this post, to tell you how my week-end with Lee and Janis was. It was FREAKING awesome!!! First off - these two are possibly the most funniest ladies you'll ever meet!! I'm serious! It's very seldom you find people who get your sense of humor dead on! I found two of them! Let me tell you more!!!
Friday, I got to Vancouver around noon, got to the hotel, where I was having a bit of a problem with the guy behind the desk. Apparently he couldn't find record of Lee leaving me a card key. Finally I told him to look under Janis, and then some crazed lunatic comes up behind me and grabs me - making me scream Alfred Hitchcock style in the Marriott!! Yes - it was Janis!! After my heart stopped palpitating - we hugged and went to the lounge for a drink (to wait for Lee who was doing the grande tour of Vancouver). While we were waiting, we spied three soap opera actors from the soap Y & R - Michael Baldwin, Lauren Fenmore and Esther. We thought that was pretty cool. Not Carrie Underwood - but then again - that's not all it's cracked up to be apparently right Lee?

Once Lee got there the party began!! We decided to grab lunch since Long Island Iced Teas and nothing in your stomach makes you kinda giddy. We went to this little joint, and I commissioned my first Bellini of our trip (A Bellini is a peach and grenadine slushy with lots of nice tequila). After that, we walked about, did some shopping. With some inspections of Lee's grande bra (both my and Janis head's fit nicely into the cups), and some flirting with the bellboy named Duncan (he was into the older ladies!) - we continued on taking Vancouver by storm. We even drank fishbowls FULL of Bellini. After that, my head was swimming like a fish let me tell ya!!!

Saturday brought on a wee bit of a hangover - and breakfast at Denny's (which didn't sit well). We then went down to Granville Island to do some shopping for the kids (in spite of no kids, we still managed to buy stuff for them - sad huh?). Then we hit the mall and shopped some more!!! We all got the neatest silver necklaces with these pendants that had sayings about friendships. I love em!! And, of course, sparkly martini glass toe rings - because they didn't have Bellini ones but that's close enough!!! We then hit Joe Forte's for some nice dinner (and bad behavior). Followed up by the drinks we started the whole trip with - L.I.I.T.'s. This is when Lee spilled her drink and we laughed like hoot owls!!! Swimming in the pool and hitting the hot tub came next (once the one-Triscut-a-week girls finally left - sheesh girls - eat a freakin' sandwich will ya??). Lee showed us her synchronized swimming moves - very eloquent. We decided to let it be known to Duncan we didn't appreciate his shunning us upon our latest traipse through the lobby.

Sunday morning, we had our breakfast, said good-bye to Michael Baldwin having his brunch, and gave lots of hugs. Me and Lee shared a cab to the airport, where we managed to have yet another fit of laughter! Honestly - these gals are so my comedic triplets! We did invent some catch phrases during our trip. One of which was "Says YOUUUUUUUUUUUU!" which is in part of my altercation with a 90 year old woman in Walmart the day before I left. "Dontcha" - which stems from the Pussy Cat Dolls song... and Lee's favorite saying, "Yummy!" We also adopted southern accents for some reason - which is strange but nonetheless - it was comedic as hell.

I have in all honesty, never laughed so freakin' hard in my entire life. Like crying so hard you could pee your pants laugh!! I feel like I've been friends with them since childhood!! There was never that awkward moment (unless you count the french guy asking Janis to lick his nipple when she wouldn't give him any change). These are definitely women I consider to be my bestest buds, and will always be friends with. So girls - thanks for the bestest mommy vacation!!

What an awesome time - I can't believe that I'm still awake at this hour, from the little sleep I've gotten lately!

Thanks again for such an awesome weekend in OH CANADA! I wouldn't have traded it for the WORLD! And I was hoping you'd post this song!


Friends, if only we could show you the other crazy pics and videos from this trip. Just believe us when we tell you that it was the best laughter we've enjoyed in years.

glad you're back, and glad you had an awesome time!


Lainey-Paney said...

Oh, P.S. Sadly, I am confessing that I am a Y&R addict, so I would have been all over them!
"OMG! You're Lauren Fenmore from Y&R, and I saw you in that 1980s movie, 'Happy Birthday to Me'! You totally rock. Can I take my picture with you?"
"Oh, and you're Michael Baldwin who used to stalk & try to hurt Cricket...back when she went by Cricket instead of Christine. Whatever. You get into so much sh*t on that show...Will you take my picture with Lauren Fenmore?"
"Oh, and who's watching Fen? Gloria? that psychopath????"
