Colorado - Friday

Friday around noon Suzanne and Millie arrived at my house and we took off on our awesome roadtrip. We drove to Glenwood Springs, Colorado because that is where Carronin's hubby's hotel is located. That was where all the magic would happen... The Blogger Slumber Party!! The other ladies were running a little behind from a lunch in Denver, so we arrived at the hotel 1 1/2 hours before they came. But Carronin was there. Her reaction to seeing our surprise: Millie, was classic. "You little SNOT!!" Loved it!! When the others arrived we hid Millie in a closet. Yes- I'm afraid the rumors are true. Millie came out of the closet on this trip... I have a great video of it, but to protect "Secret Identities" I cannot share it on my blog. Sorry!
Since it was late when the others arrived we grabbed some grub at the DQ next door to the hotel. It started raining and the lites went out. Ooooooooh. Then we went to Target to pick up some odds and ends. Carronin and ElasticWaistbandLady
Back at the hotel we hung out and talked "Girl Talk." Here I am explaining how great the Instead Cup is... (See Toni- I DID think of you!!)

We changed into our pjs and did girly things like brush each other's hair, watched Annie's fave show "What Not to Wear" , play "Lite as a Feather, Stiff as a Board" (kidding) and gossip...Annie and ElasticWaistbandLady

SoDak Angel, Annie, Me, Suzanne, No Cool Story and Carronin

And if you thought I was kidding about No Cool Story being my twin, compare her 11yr old pic to "5th Grade Tori:)" in the sidebar.


Now check out our pic from Colorado.See the awesome resemblence??? haha

(I'm keeping her face hidden because she's prettier...)
Thelma and Louise
Carrot Jello really was there. I promise. She just hid everytime a camera was pointed in her direction!! Stay tuned though, because I did snap a few of her on Saturday!!
More tomorrow!!!

Oh my goodness, what is wrong with my eyes in that last picture??? Really, I have normal looking eyes, people! :D

I'm so glad you captured the Millie surprise on camera! We'll just have to share it secretly, I guess! :)

Tofutti Kline said...

You guys are all so beautiful. Wow. Did you have to win a Golden Ticket to go to this party?

Evil Kitty said...

Evil Kitty thinks that it is EVIL that all the Utah Girls weren't invited!

Special K ~Toni said...

Still jealous of all of you!

I have converted 4 ladies to the instead cup! I always have to explain it! Thanks Tori!

Great song choice today!

Carrot Jello said...

Suzanne, admit it. You were drunk. Actually, I have the same picture of you, but with normal eyes.

Dana said...

It looks like ya'll had so much fun! I am really, really jealous!

aubrey said...

it looks like you had a fabulous time! and funny about millie coming out of the closet!

Stepherz said...

Those pics are great! I think it's been 15 years since I've been to a slumber party!

Stepherz said...

I've also recently learned that "slumber parties" are what girls do. "sleep-overs" are for the boys. Isn't that weird? I learned that when Austin had a few friends over recently. He made me feel like a dork for calling it a slumber party.

AzĂșcar said...

What a blast!

Nancy Face said...

OHHHH!!! I love all the pictures so much! What gorgeous girls you are...cute jammies, too! :)

Millie "came out of the closet"...LOL! :D

Anonymous said...

I bet I could guess who Evil Kitty is. Heh heh.

Yvonne said...

Sure looks like you all had the best time--how fun for all of you. Thanks for sharing what you could.

Tori :) said...

Suzanne- Pot will do that to you... You know I'm kidding!

Tofutti- LOVE the name. No golden ticket, just an invite from Annie.

Evil Kitty- Whaa freakin' whaa, as Taj would say...

Toni- Isn't this song jammin'??? "Some Kind of Wonderful" YAY!

Carrot- She tries to play so nice doesn't she?? ;)

Dana- Texas blogfest???

Aubrey- It really was fun. I wish I had met you though.

Stepherz- I'll remember the "rules" when Tristan has friends over. "Sleep over" not "Slumber party..."

Azucar- Bloggers gone wild!!

Nancy face- My sweat pants are cute, aren't they??

Anonymous- We're taking bets...

Yvonne- Thanks! It was a great time.

normanbatesmomma said...

Did your mothers know what you were up to?

Tori :) said...

Ok- where are all these new people coming from???

Evil Kitty said...

Hiss! Do you not like Evil Kitty? Will you stroke Evil Kitty's tail and be Evil Kitty's friend?

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

Ever since the blog etiquette post, I got a few new readers that have found you too! Yay for new cool blog mamas!

I am so shocked at the twinners you and NCS are! Truly separated at birth!

Jean Knee said...

Tori- it looks so fun and you guys are all so cool and pretty and stuff ( I need help Tori. some really weird people are commenting on my blog. I think they may be swingers. It's freaking me out. please advise)

Lisa M. said...

OH HOW NEAT! I am so jealous!

Tori :) said...

Tori :) said...
EK- Um... I'm not really into "stroking" any...cat.

Gina- Isn't the resemblance CRAZY??

Lisa M.- Don't be jealous. You've met me already. Oh, wait- did you mean jealous because you weren't there- not because they got to meet me? ;)

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Why couldn't you black out my fat arms too? :(

Norman Bates Momma loves me more than you, Tori. I bought her a year supply of Renuzit room deodorizer.

Help I need a user name! said...

How FUN!!!!! Glad you got to go.

Instead-is it completely disgusting, or not much worse than "other options?"

Love today's song..."Dancin' with Myself" always makes me want to go put The Wedding Singer in the DVD.

No Cool Story said...

I love your "I heart Seiuli" shirt. I love the picture of Annie brushing Elsatic's hair.
The beer flows like wine. So that's why you guys were acting so goofy. Not me because I'm good.

I have to say you all make me look great in those pictures. I don't know I've ever looked squarer than this. OMGosh I can't belieb I posted that hideous picture of 5th grade NCS. 5th grade Tori beats her anytime andywhere. Not that she would 'cause they are twins and all.

Carrot Jello said...

Evil Kitty should change her name. Back to her REAL name.
"Evil Kitty"- You can come next year. As long as you're taking medication.
Tori, you must spray your blog for blog trolls because you are becoming infected.

Lauren said...

That instead cup is ginormous...I don't think it looks awesome haha.

You and NCS are such twinners; Mary Kate and Ashley would be envious!

SoDak Angel said...

I loved meeting you! Had a great time, and you are a super kind of friend, to bring a sister....keep it secret....and video-tape! Wish you could have ventured on the party for longer! I have said it before...I will take what I can get!

Amanda said...

Never heard of the instead cup. Curious!?!

What fun! I will definitely be coming next time, nothing can stop me!

Emily said...

Now I am both facinated and disgusted by the Instead Cup since I went to the webpage. I want to have a sleepover!

carronin said...

I edited out the cup on my blog I thought you might not want it out there on the internets but I see it wasn't necessary.You are so much fun Tori I'm so glad you came and that you brought that little snot Millie with you.

Annie said...

I love your recap post. I am sorry it has taken me awhile to comment. I still haven't unpacked. Doh!

To those who are wondering why they didn't get invited...

Secret Agent Man ran back ground checks on all the attendees. If you have ever been a terrorist, nude in public, or have worn gauchos, you were off the list!
