We hiked Camelback, jogged the horse path and laughed through a yoga video. We ate healthy meals, concocted breakfast juice drinks, and had Mexican at Pinks (the Mexican equivalent of Hooters, I believe). We laid out by the pool, shopped in Scottsdale and found bargains at Nordstroms DI -- can't remember the name. We discussed the FLDS, birthing stories and the economy.
We were full-time sisters--moms and wives from a distance for three days. We shared clothes, hair tips and food tips. It was just like old times without the fighting--no broken noses or scratches on the face. Our mom came too, hopefully enjoying the fruits of many, many years of labor--of patience and wisdom in child-rearing--and the fulfilling of her words that she said over and over: "You'll be best friends when you grow up."
