7TH ANNUAL MYSTERY GIRL’S TRIP

The time is upon us! I can’t believe this but…the SEVENTH ANNUAL MYSTERY GIRL’S TRIP IS IN T-MINUS 2 WEEKS! For those of you guys that have been following me on social media, you might be familiar with this masterpiece of a trip, but if not, here’s how it works. (Read to the bottom to see pics from last year’s trip to Nashville and to the one and only clue we’ve received for this year’s trip.)

Several years ago, I read an article in Real Simple magazine about this group of girlfriends who made a pact to go on one annual trip, which sounds pretty normal and fun, right? But, this gal-pal getaway had a few important and unique twists that caught my eye, leading my group of girlfriends and I to follow suit!

Here’s how the trip works: 

1. One or two of the girls planned the entire trip completely solo. 
2. Everyone on the trip contributes the same amount of money and gives the money to the planner/s. This means that regardless of where each girl lives, she pays the same dollar-amount, making it financially fair and square.  The chances of the entire group attending became exponentially higher, and girls that live farther away don’t have to spend more, which, YES, always happens and isn’t so fabulous.
3. THE ENTIRE TRIP IS  ALWAYS A COMPLETE AND TOTAL SURPRISE. So when I say that the article called it a surprise trip, I actually mean it. From start to finish- location, flights, activities, food…everything was planned by the planners and was all unknown. That’s how our trip works too!

Pulling off all of the intricate details without effing up…dudes, it’s straight-up cray. From booking a house, to arranging 10+ flights for a huge group that lives all over the earth WHILST keeping it all as secret….heart palpitations for the planner/s.

The trip is always a massive success, all due to these women, who have VERY full lives and their willingness to always commit to sacrificing that one special weekend each year. As we’ve gotten older, it’s become a bigger sacrifice; these women are business owners, executives, moms, wives, world-changers, and most importantly, straight-up bad-asses in general. But they all make the time to get away, bond and share some serious quality time together every year and for that I’m very cheesily grateful. This stuff is what life is actually about.

Here’s where we’ve gone over the last 6 years….

YEAR 1: Cayucos, CA DUDE RANCH

YEAR 2: Phoenix, AZ NBA HOUSE

YEAR 3: Seattle, WA LAKE HOUSE WITH BON JOVI

YEAR 4: SoCal BEACH HOUSE WITH YACHT TOUR

YEAR 5: Denver, CO Mountain Chalet + DANI’S SURPRISE ENGAGEMENT 

YEAR 6: Nashville, TN FARMHOUSE

YEAR 7: ???? But here’s the only clue so far – “The juice will be worth the squeeze.” 

***I never got around to posting pics from last year’s trip, so here are a few. Also, Nashville. If you haven’t been, you need to get yourself there. It’s magic.
