friday: finished classes and headed up to brevard. after a quick wendy's meal, we drove to graveyard fields, the first campsite and dropped off half our group. then the rest of us went to flat laurel to camp for the night (after driving around for way too many repeats of the goo goo dolls cd trying to find the dern place). we hiked like 10 feet and camped. bethany, jarvis and jennings headed back to bethany's aunt's house to get a sleeping bag for the forgetful jarvis. then bedtime.
saturday: woke up around 8:30 (were supposed to get up at 7:30), breakfast of grits before packing up camp and hiking 6 miles to ivestor's gap to meet up with the rest of the oauers. we arrived and ate lunch before all settling down for a quick nap on top of a hill. day hike to shining rock, 5 mile round trip, and it was sweet. set up camp and ate a dinner of stove top, ramen, and jello no-bake together and hung out around the fire till it was time to turn in.
sunday: woke up at 7:30, oatmeal and hot chocolate for breakfast, packed up for our hike outta the forest. 4 mile hike. hannah, drew and i booked it and played on the rocks around the waterfall when we got to the end. i think i got some sweet photos, but i'll let you know once i finish up the roll and get it developed. lunch at arby's because kc jones is closed on sundays (argh!), but i made up for missing some delicious spinach and artichoke dip with some after-lunch dolly's ice cream. then it was time to head back. i didn't get to lexington till later that evening.
monday: watched the breakfast club on vh1 before the shogers dropped sb off. i took her to see the lhs marching band practice for a little while, hoping we'd see a whole run-thru. sadly, we didn't. back home for a dinner of country fried steak, my favorite. watched the hunchback of notre dame before crashing early bc we were both exhausted (me from the trip and sb from her brother's wedding).
tuesday (yesterday): got up early to go shopping. i got a way-cool iriver mp3/cd player, which is cheaper and more sensible than just an mp3 player. early christmas present. and i got a winter hat and gloves from pacsun. mellow mushroom lunch with the magsix gals, and it was good times for sure. then it was back to school.
and here i am. blogging when i should be doing something productive. adios.
