weekend with the girls

Going back to last weekend…two full days with my college girlfriends.

Here we are on bid day, 1995.  Wouldn’t it be great if we ALL got together again?

bid day

The first “out of towners” started arriving at about 11am.  Those of us that were in town met at a yummy salad/sandwich place called “The Green Bean”.


Karie HATES green beans and wasn’t real excited about eating at a place named after her most hated veggie.  Ha ha.  I assured her before we even went to the restaurant that they didn’t even serve the vile bean.


Before we met the rest of our friends, we did something we rarely do…shop without kids.

Me and Joy…the “activity” directors.  Really, Joy was the HEAD director and I was the assistant.  We all hung out at her parents house and it was FABULOUS!

Checking out Ashley’s Zeta Rho scrapbook (Ashley, Erin, Clair, Lyndsay and Leslie)


Janna “get the camera out of my face” Gustafson


Me and Karie…friends for 25 years-that’s quite a record!


Self-timer picture…nice t-shirts, huh?


We decided that we all needed matching “function” type t-shirts.  Designed by Clair Patton and delivered by Janna G.  Saturday morning, we went to downtown Fayetteville to the Farmer’s Marker.  We were stopped by, at least 20 older people, questioning our “group”.


At the Farmer’s Market I saw the biggest dog EVER.  That thing takes up a lot of space.

After the morning at the Farmer’s Market, we went to see our friend, Michael Ann.  Her house is big and beautiful and there was plenty of room for all of us to hang out and laugh and play.

Michael Ann’s sweet baby boy, Crosby.


For dinner that night, we went to Wasabi’s for sushi.  Clair and I split and we DEVOURED everything in sight.


After dinner, we did something I might not have predicted we would be doing 15 years ago.  We found ourselves at a tattoo/piercing parlor…I know.  Three of my friends, Lyndsay, Jenny and Janna, were interested in nose rings.

Then the lady behind the counter started explaining the process…


After the explanation, it was down to two…


Lyndsay was out…but she did get bangs once she got back home.  In my book, that might be as big as a deal as getting a nose ring!


Jenny, excited!  About to get the nose ring.


And, that is where my pictures end.  I know, disappointing!  Janna and Jenny both got nose rings and they are pretty cute.  I don’t think I could ever go through it after witnessing Janna get hers, but hey, you never know.

It was a fabulous weekend and I am already looking forward to next summer!

Sounds like fun! Well except for the nose ring part....I have seen that done and don't want to experience it! Love the matching shirts...neat idea!

I agree -- more haste, less speed.

Just kidding -- what's that all about?

Looks SOmuch fun. And I love Lyndsay's face as the nose-piercing person explains.
