Hard to come home from a fun filled weekend with a few of my all-time favorite gals. I met these girls in high school (a few of us go back as far as elementary school, 4-H, and even kindergarten!) I always look forward to seeing them as they are all genuinely beautiful women inside and out. We gathered together in Minnesota for the weekend and I didn't even get one mosquito bite from their state bird! But whoever ordered the chilly weather is in deep trouble. Our 4 hour boat ride (although arguably one of the most fun activities of the weekend) was so chilly we were forced to add socks to our flip-flopped feet and blankets tucked under our chins!
Our sweet, innocent driver "Kyle" was having his 19th birthday. Poor boy...stuck on a boat with a bunch of 30-something gals gossiping about their pasts. We took a few photos with him and offered to tag him on facebook. But after seeing his look of sheer horror and hearing his comment, "YOU guys are on facebook", complete with utter shock....we politely dropped the subject :)
After the ride we did our best to wash the fishy smell off so we could head out to dinner at Chino Latino. We had so much fun people watching, laughing over the menu, and screaming at each other over the loud roar. If you are in the Minneapolis area you should definitely check it out...lots of fun!
We did a quick trip through the Minneapolis Sculptor Gardens, ate at some cute little cafes, and spent COUNTLESS hours pouring over our yearbooks...amazing how much we THINK we have changed...but really haven't.
Must mention I flew Northwest...yeah. May have to be the last time. Our flight got delayed 5 HOURS going up there and they lost our luggage coming home despite the fact that we had a direct flight. But heck...I got TWO $5.00 meal vouchers so I guess I'm good.
So in honor of our weekend, girls...a fun new "senior quote" just for you :)
"Stay Sweet" gals...love you all!
