Central California Adventure

This weekend, my good friend and college roomie, Joie and I headed out to Fresno to attend our other good friend's bridal shower. As most things relating to Joie and I, we had an adventure from the moment we started our road trip.

After grabbing some coffee for the road and gabbing about everything and everything, we realized a restroom stop was needed. Of course...this was also when we reached a 20 mile stretch of nothingness. As my bladder cried out, we pulled over at a truck stop in the middle of nowhere. We didn't blend in well to say the least...at the truck stop in the middle of the agriculture fields, running around in our high heels and dresses.

Once we arrived, we joined the girls for a one-of-a-kind Bridal Shower Scavenger Hunt and a fun time welcoming our friend to the married club. There was running. There was screaming. There was pushing. There was cheering. It was a great time.

We learned all the roads in/around/to/from Fresno. Luckily, Joie brought along her portable GPS, who we lovingly called Garmin. Garmin was in a finicky mood and would sometimes take us on mini detours, driving around in circles, ("isn't this where we started...?") until we finally made it to our destination and home. Thank you Garmin. Despite your moodiness, we still love you.

We are heading back for the wedding in two weeks...let's see what adventures are in store for the next trip!
