gretchen’s parents had to go to a steak dinner for a church meeting on saturday night, so the 4 of us got to cook out own dinner. we had so much fun doing it! we played some music, made some stuffed shells and chicken paremsean, tossed together some yummy salads, set the table slightly fancy (aka, a tablecloth, candles, and sparkling grape juice) and had a really nice meal together. then we played a board game, watched some tv, and around midnight, we all went just a little crazy.

and this is where the real craziness started, and subsequently where the title of this post came from. kara, katie, and gretchen just about died of laughter when they found out that i had the addy american girl doll as a child. i’m not entirely sure why that was so funny, but it was late, and we were looking through a bunch of my old baby pictures on facebook and the picture of me with the addy doll just sent everybody over the edge, and into hysterics. laughter ensued over just about everything for the next hour or so.
while we were taking random ridiculous pictures (like the one above) we looked over and saw kara attempting to make a beard out of a tissue… ooookay then.
this lead to all of us making beards with our hair. like i said… we were all just a tad bit insane at this point.
kara was struggling with the hair thing since her hair was still short after she donated it last may.
i don’t even have words for this picture.
or this one, really.
and then sunday morning we all had a big breakfast, went to church, and then relaxed until it was time to drive home. before we got dressed for church though, we had to take a picture of all of us in our plaid pjs.
it was a really great weekend, and i’m so glad that we got the opportunity to get away from school for a while and have fun together. in the fall, we’re hoping to take a bigger group to gretchen’s and camp out in the woods. i think that would be so much fun, and i really hope we can do it!
