Literally, this is copy and pasted from Staci’s blog, just editing a few details (like what I got when we went shopping). She wrote the best summary ever!
“It has come and gone. The First Annual (or maybe more often than annual) Girls Weekend! We had soooooo much fun! It went by way too fast 🙁
Juli Beth, Megan, and I arrived at Suzanne’s house on Friday around 4:00 pm. When Megan arrived…the energy level went up. She bounded into the house like Tigger she was so excited about the weekend!
First on the agenda was food. Suzy went to the store before we got there and bought supplies to make lots of finger foods. LOTS! We had tomato basil pizza, pinwheel calzones, cucumber something on french bread, homemade salsa, homemade guac, 7 layer dip, chips, candy, and a yummy cookie dough dip (you dip vanilla wafers in it). We made WAY too much food for FOUR girls! lol. We had fun making it and eating it though 😉
After dinner we gather in the living room for a devotional. This was probably my favorite part of the entire weekend. We spent over 2 hours singing praises to God, reading his Word, sharing, and praying together. Our common love for Christ what brought us together as friends over 2 decades ago…and it’s what still ties us together. Here’s Juli Beth and Megan getting ready for our devo.
After the devo we sat around and talked and laughed until about 1:30 am when we decided to watch a movie. Suzanne made a pallet on the floor and we were all excited to have a slumber party all night long! Then we laid down. We suddenly realized that we’re not teenagers anymore. We all started talking about how much our bodies would ache if we slept on the floor all night! I warned them that I’d be asleep within minutes of the movie starting since it was so late. Within 30 minutes we’d all moved from the floor to the nice comfy beds 🙂
Saturday morning Suzy made us breakfast burritos and then we sat around talking until about 10:30 when we decided to get dressed and go shopping. Here’s Megan, Juli Beth, Staci, & Suzanne ready to shop!
For lunch we stopped at Falcone’s for pizza. It was YUMMY! It was also a GREAT deal! They messed up when they were serving the pizza and gave me 2 pieces of pizza for the price of one since the 2nd piece fell onto my plate. Ok?! So Megan and I split the meal costing us a little over $2 a piece! That’s a deal!
We spent the rest of the afternoon tiring ourselves out with shopping. I had great shopping success-I got 4 shirts and a pair of capris. It was so fun actually taking time to browse and try stuff on.
We went to a restaurant called Interurban for dinner. It was fun to sit there and talk (some more) before Juli Beth had to leave. Wade was leaving for church camp on Sunday, so she had to go home to get him ready and take him to camp. We were sad to see her leave…but you better believe we got one more group picture before she left (We took over 100 pics this weekend…most of them were group shots from funny angles!).
After JB left…Suzy, Megan and I went to Bricktown to walk around and eat dessert. When we parked in the parking garage we looked over the edge to see a baseball game in progress! The breeze was blowing thru the garage and it was a beautiful night. We stood there and watched the game for awhile (until Megan complained enough of her uneasiness of heights).
We stopped at a restaurant (don’t remember what it was) for dessert. We stopped there because of the guitar player/singer on their patio. He was awesome! I think his name was Aaron Newman. After dessert we headed back to Suzy’s house (singing praise songs the whole way).
Sunday morning, we parted ways. I headed to the airport while everyone else headed to church and eventually home. It was a fantastic weekend-lots of memories and lots of laughs. I can’t wait until our next get together!
