Hello friday bloggie bloggertons!!!! So the end of the week is finally here, and my oh my what a difference a night of sleep will make…. this lady feels revived and out of my funk from yesterday (grrrr that was not fun!)
But today is a new day — and I am a firm believer in starting things fresh 🙂
So with that said, I suppose it’s time to let all you friends know what’s up with this weekend?!?!?!?!?
You bloggies are so smart 😉 you guessed it — I’m headed up north with my besties from college and we’re visiting a winery!!!
But that is not the main reason for this trip of course 😉
Here’s the low down: my 4 years at JMU (yea purple & gold!) I made some of the best friends I have ever had — including my 2 roomies (Kerri and Kristine) and our may-as-well-be-a-roomie (Laura). It has probably been 2 years since ALL of us have gotten together — so this weekend we are packin’ up and headed to……. NEW JERSEY!!!
You see, Kerri lives in NJ (right by the NY state line) & no one has seen her in forever (is she still alive ;)?) Kristine (aka “Stine”) lives in the Richmond area and Laura lives in D.C. and I definitely don’t get to see them enough!
So Kristine and I are headed outta Richmond and meeting up with Laura in D.C. who will then drive us up to Hewitt, NJ. 7 hours on the ol’ mapquest, so it’s gonna be a doozy!
However Kerri is lucky enough to live close to many wineries and we are going to visit one called the Warwick Winery! I am so excited, bc as we all know…. I LOVE WINE!
But before I go any further, let me take a brief minute to tell 2 of my fave college late night stories — which so conveniently involve 2 of these individuals 😉
One night in college…..
- some stupid girls were saying stupid things to our group o’ gals and we were in a classy screaming match, at which point Stine (who is about 4’11”) says to me “Don’t you worry Steph, I have my stretchy pants on!” as she high kicks her leg in the air (she once was a gymnast) in an attempt to show me how she may kick some butt in her “stretchy pants”….?
- Kerri came upstairs from the neighbors down below with a pot of meat spaghetti (she’s a veg) and says to me “want to try this, it’s sooooo good” — I look at this pot of sghetti and immediately ask where this had come from, which in return Kerri proceeds to tell me she made it. So I stick a fork in and it is hard as a rock… why you ask? It was day old spaghetti that had sat out that Kerri found at the neighbors house… and took…. no words?
So there you have it!
I may be a lil’ off the normal bloggin’ schedule this weekend due to my travels — however don’t you doubt that I will have FULL recaps of our adventures for all you friends as we go along!! 🙂 I wouldn’t leave ya hangin’ like that 😉
Oh – and in other big news – I am seriously contemplating growing my hair back out!
I have been thinking about it for a while now, and after seeing all these pix I really think that’s how I like it best (not to mention I miss my ponytail 😦 )
Do you guys think I should keep it short or grow it back out?? Would love to get some opinions!!
Alright peeps, gotta get to work here but I will definitely see you before I leave for a lunch recap!!! 🙂
HAPPY FRIDAY TO YOU ALL!
