Once again I should be studying or something of that sort, but other things, like blogging, are just way more important!
This past week M decided that we should skip out on Thursday's class and head down to Backwoods for the week.
Disclaimer #1: Everyone that knows me really well knows that this is always a hard trip for me because I really, seriously dislike the "great outdoors", as fabulous as they can be. I also really enjoy air conditioning, and there's not a lot of it at this place......so you can see why I sometimes have a more difficult time saying yes to these trips. But, this is honest to goodness M's favorite place in the WHOLE wide world (for good reason), so I do enjoy going to be with him an his friends despite the heat, bugs, other outdoorsy elements, etc.
Anyway, we decided at about 3 that afternoon that we would leave for Backwoods...so we got the oil changed, dropped Tuck off with my parents, packed, and we were on the road by 6. Talk about a whirlwind of a few hours! M drove, I finished homework, and we stopped at McDonald's to use their WiFi and submit our homework. Crazy night!
I was honestly very excited to get out of town for a few days and I was really glad to get that school work out of the way. I was even more glad (and thankful!) when I learned that I was going to be sleeping in a cabin with A/C. I'm sure many of you can relate to my feelings! :) It was so great to get there and see so many people that we have not seen since last summer. I forgot how awesome it was to sit and not have to worry about things. It was great just to visit and catch up. It was also an awesome visit because we got to see just about everyone that we were hoping to get to spend some time with!
The second night we were there might be the reason that this was my favorite road trip to camp yet, and probably will be my favorite ever. The girls (I say girls, but they are all married and a little older than me...but just as fun and great girlfriends!) that I was hanging out with decided to have a night of fun...and who knew it could turn out to be so eventful!
Around 3 AM or so we decided to play a joke on M because he was sleeping in a camper out past the main part of camp. Obviously we were being silly, we had the giggles and our idea was perfect (although not completely thought through)...until it took forever for him to wake up and notice the joke! After we successfully video taped the hilariosity (I think I just made that word up!) we headed back to the main camp grounds...where we got caught. We had been ratted out. We got lectured. And I was basically scared to death.
Disclaimer #2: Because of the events of that night (some of which cannot be revealed!) I am pretty sure that I love Backwoods and it is safe to say that it is one of my new favorite places. I also love, love, LOVE the ladies that I got to know this week and I am really thankful for the kindness that they extended to me in allowing me be involved in their crazy antics!
There are a few things developing with our wedding plans...but I will blog about that later this week when i am procrastinating during my study time for finals on Thursday!!!
