That Time We Almost Called Dateline

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know this was the weekend Kimmy and I made our friendship "legit" (that's one's for you, E) and met in The Lou for an epic weekend.  I rolled into town around 5pm and hung out at the Stanfield house while we waited for Amanda and Becky to arrive.  

Holly and I played a round of beer pong {with that serious face, it was now surprise she won} while OB double fisted ice cream treats.  She's a girl after my own heart.  Then we headed into downtown St. Charles for dinner and to wait for Kimmy's arrival.   During dinner we decided our weekend would be Big Holly's Beer Camp since the only working out we planned on doing was bicep curls to get the beer to our mouths none of us were in Dallas for Mama Laughlin's Fit Camp.

After dinner we met Melanie and walked down to a local bar and shared lots of yawns laughs.

These girls are the Grey Goose to my orange juice.

Just before leaving this may have happened.  And... that was all she wrote for Kimmy.  This picture resulted in a trip to Jack In The Box where Kimmy proceded to ask some random people if they would play TLC's Waterfall and demanded a Jumbo Jack burger.

Saturday morning started shortly after we went to bed.  Holly kept telling us Olive would be up and ready to go at 5am.  Perhaps we thought she was kidding, but more likely, we were in denial.  However, at 5am, on the dot, we all had the pleasure of waking up to little OB running around prying our eyelids open.  I guess it was time to get up.  

Slowly, we got ourselves together and went over to Mel's before going to lunch.  We couldn't all sit together, so Mel and her "crew" {E,Laura blogless, and Laura's husband} sat down before us.... then this happened....

While Holly, Kimmy, Amanda and I were starving and ready to gnaw our arms off, Melanie proceeded to eat in front of us and only cared enough to throw up the deuces.  That's true friendship. 

After lunch we went the the Schlafly Brewery and had a taste testing.  I'm still puzzled as to why the website said closed toe shoes are required.  We sat at a table and didn't get up.  As far as Kimmy and I were concerned shoes, in general, were not required.  It was a good time and texts were shared across the room, as our group was too big (7 people) and there wasn't space for all of us to sit together.

Sunday morning we got up, Melanie jacked Kimmy's hair to Jesus, Holly and OB came over, and we went out for a girls only breakfast.

I cannot describe how great the weekend was!  These girls are amazing.  I feel like I have known them for years!  My heart was heavy having to leave them, but so full at the same time.

Happy Monday, rockstars! I hope you're feeling as blessed as I am this morning.
