Cindy discusses her neutral stance in the Alex/LuAnn fight and her need for assistance.

Who knew vacation could be so stressful?

Just when I thought things were calming down, Jill and Ramona were back at it again and the group stuck to our usual split of blondes on one side and brunettes on the other. Even though the other girls were set on “staying neutral,” they couldn’t help but get involved and stir up more trouble! I decided to just sit back and not let it ruin a beautiful trip. The girls have known each other a lot longer than I have, and it’s not my place to weigh in on every argument. Besides, I was too busy having fun!

I was so excited when Kelly, LuAnn, and I got to have authentic Moroccan henna tattoos applied. The beautiful designs are the inspiration behind my own completely bare henna tattoos, a piece of Morocco I knew I had to bring home. Of course nothing was peaceful for too long and Alex had to come in and cause drama. She was so fired up she could barely get a sentence out. I actually started to feel sorry for her by the end of the trip -- another reason why I didn’t want to be confrontational or join any arguments.

We had so many incredible meals in Morocco, but I was a little thrown off when we had to cook our own on the last day. I totally don’t get the point of cooking. You take all this time to prepare the food, and then it’s gone! Luckily, I got the staff to help out with my tangine, which the girls found hilarious. What can I say? I find an assistant everywhere I go.
