Grand Canyon Girls Trip

We got to spend four whole days with our amazing friend Ashley! The first night was New Year's Eve so we stayed in Phoenix and went to the New Year's Eve event at Dave and Busters. For those of you that don't know, it's a big arcade for adults. When we arrived there was a line to get in the door. We met a few people and the camaraderie that comes with a mutual experience ensued. Being social with strangers is really hit or miss so we had code signs to get out of certain situations and code names for creepers that just couldn't take a hint. Our favorite code name was about a guy wearing a leather vest turned out to be pretty elaborate. We also got enough tickets for us to each get a cute little stuffed animal.

So many inside jokes were crafted, so many selfies were had. Whether it was handing our phone to someone else, jumping in for a snapshot or using Angela's full frame camera, every photograph was a lot of fun! Before we knew it we had stayed up all night slap happy, talking about nothing and everything all at once and giggling non-stop. It's amazing to know we can just look at each other and know what the other is thinking and then start laughing all over again.
The next morning came and we had not slept a wink. Our hotel had a continental breakfast so we went down and ate. It was actually really good! We took a nap and we were on our way again. First place we stopped was on my bucket list, Winslow, Arizona. We got to stand on the corner as mentioned in the song "Take It Easy" by the Eagles. We talked about maybe taking the whole Route 66 Highway one day. Just being at the highway was magical for Ashley because it was in the movie Cars and she LOVES DISNEY!
For most of the rest of the trip we drove around the Grand Canyon looking at the sites and listening to incredible music. My favorite part of the trip was how chill everyone was about everything. No one cared what we did even if it was just vegging out, we just enjoyed being together. Best friends are always down to be just be spontaneous. It is during these trips while shoving pizza in our mouths, snuggling, and trying to binge watch Netflix we discover how close we really are. The memories we make on our girls trips will last forever.
