Last weekend all us sisters (sister-in-law too)
met up in Arizona for a sister's weekend!
Our brother was even able to join us a couple times.
It was great to be in sunny weather,
in the town we grew up in with the whole "gang".
We went down memory lane, had a lot of laughs, ate a lot of good food,
drove by the old neighborhoods, high school and hang outs.
We shopped, visited the temple that we all happened to be married in, saw an old friend, got pedis/mais and just relaxed.
To kick off our weekend,
we thought it would be fun to each bring some items from home
to put in a trip goodie bag.
Just some little things we could use on the trip and others to take home for later.
We even made a surprise bag up for our brother (customized items just for him! )
I found the cutest canvas tote bags as Hobby Lobby
and knew these were the ones for the trip.
I stumbled upon these so fun rustic, wooden initial tags on clearance at Michaels.
Perfect to tie one on each bag to personalize it.
As we arrived, we privately put our items in the bags
so we could all be surprised when we opened them.
First up, a few snacks.
These Lara bars are a great tasting granola bar, nuts, Cabury eggs and
of course coconut Farrero Raffaelos.
Some fun beauty items:
Compact mirror, hand sanitizer, headband for the facemasks, nail polish remover pads, emery board and polish.
And a few more things:
Press Forward inspirational tag, notepad with pen, ZZang candy bars, chap stick (lovin' the plaid wrapper on it), C.O. Bigelow Rose salve in this cute little tin and mini Bath and Body Works candle. A 5x7 zip lock bag held a ginham pencil, decorative sticky notes, fun tags, mini spools of ribbon and was clipped at the top with a mini "write stuff" tag and mini sparkly pink clothespin.
Lovin' this goodie bag.
Can't wait to use all the items in it!
It was the "best weekend ever"
and we decided we should plan our next family reunion there.
We'll bring out the kids for some fun in the sun
and plan another girl's weekend too!
