The FABULOUS Getaway!

There was a lot-O-laughin!
Lots of crafting!
Lots of eatin'
It was a blast!

I was the LUCKIEST this past few days.
I got to spend the weekend with some awesome ladies in a beautiful rustic cabin.
Brittany (can't find your blog!)
Katie (do you have a blog?)
AND not to be forgotten
Paper Wendy
Paper Gigi
See! I told ya I was the luckiest!

We celebrated a couple of birthdays. (Cherie and Keeley)

Here is Cherie with Paper Wendy (the blonde) and Paper Gigi (big lips to match Cherie's big lips)

Gigi was a little shy and subdued, but NOT WENDY! Oh my goodness!

She nearly FELL into the pan of lasagna! Good thing M-Cat knows CPR!
OK maybe it was M-Cat that nearly fell into the pan of lasagna. We were all lucky to get one little teeny taste!

We did A LOT of crafting!
('specially M-Cat who LOVES to craft and also wants to go to Brazil........don't ask)

(Speakin' of work it girl!)

It seems like Gigi and Wendy were everywhere!

Ann and Kimmie and I were TRYING to have a private conversation. But then Wendy came and started talking about Brazil and well....

Ann gave up and went to have a quiet moment to herself.

But that didn't work out so well.
Kimmie is one out of control girl! She's constantly cracking jokes and making you spit your cornflakes through your nose.

Here Cherie and I are just resting. Doing a little gossiping.....OK we weren't gossiping, but ya shoulda heard Wendy and Gigi.

I learned all sorts of stuff!

And speaking of woman of questionable morals! They were found in bed with M-Cat!
It's true.
Hope SplendaDaddy is OK with it.

I know ya can't see Em there, but she is there burrowed under the covers.

Speaking of bed........this is Keeley asleep.

She snores.
She also wears footie pajamas. Seriously for reals!

We all tried to slide down the banister.
Paper Gigi and Paper Wendy were in the very front and got smashed FLAT!

Thank goodness for normal people!

Just Ann, Monica and Heather tolerating Wendy and Gigi evesdropping.
Really those two Paper People were everywhere.

Paper Wendy started smartin' off to Ann.
So Ann told her to ...well... she said to kiss it.
So she did.

And here's Keeley taking her birthday walk down the stairs with her tiara!

Happy Birthday you gorgeous babe! Thanks for gettin' older!
Monica had a secret that we just couldn't get out of her!
We tried.

It may or may NOT have something to do with what Cherie is holding.

Cherie and her darling daughters, Katie and Brittany!
I'm not sure how they felt about their mother being so immature.
Katie and Keeley fixed us breakfast on our last morning there.

Can I just say YUM?

Cherie tried to sneak away, but there was NO HIDING from Paper Wendy and Paper Gigi.

Do I detect a look of disdain from Cherie's daughters?
We are totally normal!

Thanks again Cherie for putting this together! It was so much fun to meet so many IRL!
I am missin' everyone already!

Be sure to go over to M-Cats and ask her when she's going to Brazil.
Oh, and ask her what her favorite craft is.
Then go wish Cherie and Keeley Happy B-day.

Momza said...

Looks so stinkin fun!
Great idea!

g.suzie said...

Well Tauna, looks like you got your 'puter sit-che-ation' fixed!
Is it legal for girls to party like that? But then I think there's a party/fun where ever you are!

Cherie said...

Tauna you did it!! You made the pictures big - whooo hoooo!!! Love your pictures and definately stealing a bunch! That one of Wendy kissing Ann's behind - ha ha - I didn't see that happen!!

You are the!!

Connie said...

So fun! So fun! So fun! Love your pictures, wish I had been there! Maybe next time! Glad Wendy and Gigi could make it! They seemed a little flat, though. Perhaps all the traveling got to them!

Lisa said...

So great! I want to come next time~especially since I hear there are bound to be dipped chocolates...I'll bring the taste testing materials. :)

Barbaloot said...

I'm jealous I didn't get to be a paper cut out. Actually, I'm jealous I missed it in general:) Looks like fun!

Laura said...

Fun, fun, fun! And fun to see some pictures of you for a change! Sounds like it was wonderful.

So are you back? I mean... Online? New computer?

T said...

SO freakin' jealous... seriously!!!!

sounds like someone needs to go wild down in my neck of the woods... well, as long as by "rustic cabin" you mean "fully functional plumbing with plenty of hot water" :)

M-Cat said...

Oh my freakin HECK!

Can I say how much I love you?

And yes, I did sleep through Wendy and Gigi in bed. They are just not THAT exciting : )

We need to do this again, and SOON!

I will totally come north!!

LOve your guts!

DCHY said...

This made me smile. Big time. Are you going to do the cabin thing every year?

Ann Marie said...

Ha-ha.. I am DYING over your "story" Dialogue.. and pictures! :0 That one of me bent over is pretty disturbing! ha-ha.. Poor Wendy. She may not recoupe after she sees that.

Can I just say how much I miss you girls? This once a year thing will be hard! You are all soooo nice!

Thank you for killing me softly with your TO DIE FOR CHOCOLATE.
It's a dang good thing that I didn't try them until I got home.. or I might have been tempted to steal. For reals.

I may have to steal a few of your pictures as well. Hope that's OKay..

Love ya..

Ann Marie said...

Oh ya.. and


Camille said...

OK - Now I know you didn't tell the whole story of your get-together! :)

Looks like so much fun! Glad to see Gigi and Wendy were able to make it at least :)

Kimmie said...

Love the way you told about the getaway!! It was perfect!

You are SO funny because I don't think I cracked too many least not jokes funny enough to make people spit cornflakes through their noses. (wink) Only in my dreams, could I ever be funny!

I had SO much fun and loved our drive down and back together. Sorry I talked your ear off. I enjoyed so much talking about family and learning more about you and your family.

Since everyone was always in the way when we were taking photos, I didn't get too many photos taken. We'll have to share. Loved seeing all of your photos and the one of M-Cat and Cherie are hilarious!

Tracy has sworn me and begged me to make sure and ask you if there is anyway you could teach me how to make chocolates. THEY ARE AMAZING!!!!!!! Taste better than Florences!! I am still amazed at your generosity and WOW your chocolate skills are out of this world!

Thanks for your friendship and enjoy your last day before it's back to the work grind!!

Saimi said...

Hooray for you!! Looks like you solved your computer dilemma!

What a fun, rockin time you girls had! Now I'm drooling at the thought of your chocolates! You must be the master chocolate maker, because anybody that makes chocolate better than Florences must be the MASTER!!

Thanks for sharing your good times!!

wendy said...

Oh my every loving FUN time. I am so glad you took me and GIGI along.
that way you had someone to BLAME things one
GOSSIP about
wha ha ha ha

I hope it was all juicy and spicy stuff cause I ain't no boring lady ....neither is Southern belle Gigi I am sure.

I WANT TO BE THERE in person next time.
WHAT....M-Cat said we weren't that good in bed. Shame on her. That's not what she told me the FIRST time.

I love the very first photo as that said it ALL...showed all your fun personalities in that pose. It truly did.

and I think actually M-Cat is a trouble maker, you saw that pose she made....questionable if I do say so....and taking everyone to Brazil the way she does.

Cherie's big lips....I think she secretly wants lip injections.

and you were probably persuading everyone towards Botox.....

but seriously, NO SERIOUSLY, what a wonderful time.

I think I'll go and stick my head in the horse trough now....

wendy said...

Oh, and one more thing,
If I have to KISS someone's A.....
in order to be there

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Lucky you! I read about you weekend on Cherie's blog. It sounds like it was perfect. I am so glad you got to go.

Yvonne said...

Looks like such a fabulous time.

So glad you all had fun.

Mikki said...

oh my gosh! Cherie's pregnant??????

Ok, I am SO TOTALLY jealous! Looks like so much fun. Very awesome.
I just want to know where my paper person is?

See Mom Smile said...

Sooooo fun. Sooooo jealous!

Heather said...

I so loved this post! Hilarious! I so linked this post to my post! I love the pictures you took!

One Cluttered Brain said...
