this fabulousness was waiting on us when we got back from our hike!

IMG_4289 and here is the chef serving our delectable Cajun Shrimp Pasta dish, which you can whip up in a jiffy, too, if you so desire!

IMG_4291 we do, indeed exist and it may not be shots or in the hot tub, but we all had glasses in our hands, Mendacious, per your request! Except Pen is drinking milk. Ha! No, it’s some of Andria’s incredible Pina Coladas! Something to help temper our drinking pace – brain freeze will make you drink a little slower.

t. “Is this Dead Animalville?” – Tempe remarking on all of the stuffed animals hanging in the cabin.

w. “You hit puberty 20 years too late.” – Niki to Tempe on her expanded chest size.

i am satsified.

pen i can't believe you took the recyclables home. i hang my head in ... ? well... i mean... its a little ocd is all i'm saying.

you guys are awesome.

penelope said...

m, you have, btw, been dubbed an honorary smartini, w/ your presence required at one of our future retreats.

but about the recyclables... are you telling me your tree-hugging self wouldn't have done the same thing?? there were a LOT of recyclables... and i feel good about it altogether. :)

mendacious said...

i have to confess- my LA, nature loving self wouldnot.

kerry was adamant about that when we were out in the middle of the desert and it drove me batty. i sort of draw a balance btw practicality, ocassional extravegence and have no earth guilt about it. so i totally have p.t.s issues about it.

and me honorary = awesome!

Cakelet said...

Bloggers in the wilderness, drinking wine straight from the bottle. Sweet! Looks like you guys did it right. Hope you can do it lots more times.

niki said...

Pen, I got your back because if you hadn't taken the recylables, I totally would have. M - can't wait for you to join us, especially if hiking is involved - I need someone to help me motivate these girls (and to trick Tempe into coming along).

I'd also like to edit and fess up that I'm a jackass. Re: Item R "Peed in the woods." My initial commentary refers to the woods or my pants, and that, in fact, is incorrect. You see, I was confusing the second time I peed in the woods (at Grandfather Mountain while hiking alone) with the first time (um, while we were in the hot tub and I didn't want to track water in the house and it would take too long to dry off). My sincerest apologies.

tempe said...

I'd like to clarify that I'm not actually an alcoholic, I just play one on TV.

Er...wait. What?


sheila said...

Girls, this looked like an awesome time and I am so jealous of the fun that was obviously had!

And I would have taken the recycling home if I had the room!
