5th Annual Csquared Vacation

I've written about it before, but (most) every year my good friends from college and I get together for a long weekend to catch up.

We all lived together at one time or another in our sorority house, and now we literally live all across the country.

It is so fun to have a time to catch up on each other's lives and spend some quality time together.

It is literally a highlight for me every year, and I am so thankful for these friendships.

This year we all met in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, which may be pretty boring to some.

But basically all we want to do is talk and catch up all day and all night, so Maggie Valley is the perfect destination.

We all arrived on a Friday afternoon and went straight to "the" Wal-mart for some groceries.

We tried to make pumpkin cookies that night without a mixer.

The blender was the closest thing we could find in the condo, so Stephanie took on the task of blending, and blending, and blending the batter in small batches.

She has also since had that baby that was cooking in there on our trip.

On Saturday we went into Waynesville, which is another very exciting town.

That night we had dinner at Fat Buddies.

It is a classy joint that serves the most delicious Macaroni and Cheese.

On Sunday we got up in barely enough time to make it to a brunch place that closed at noon.

It may or may not have had to do with the fact that we stayed up until 4am talking.

Which is totally acceptable with no kids to tend to in the morning.

On our way home from Joey's Pancake House we decided to embrace the culture and take a picture in front of the corn fields.

On Sunday night we headed into Ashville for our most exciting adventure - 

A wine and cheese appetizer before heading home to make pizzas.

That night things go crazy on the coffee table with some NKOTB and Taylor Swift.

I just can't help myself when I feel the music.

And, yes, it may look like we were playing some folk tunes, but I assure you it was some good old fashioned Jordan Knight.

Monday morning we got up and all had to say goodbye.

Nicole and I flew home and were already looking forward to the 6th Annual trip next year.

So thankful I have friends who value friendship.

We have so much fun and are truly friends who support and pray for each other no matter how many miles separate us.

I am so thankful the Lord brought us together and that He continues to give us opportunities to grow together.
