Kait is so good, she doesn't even have to watch the screen...and D, well, D is a rock star.
Saturday: Deirdre, Kait and I got up and got around to go to Grand Valley. Chris left around 11:30am and so did we. We went to Kait's house for lunch with her parents and so she could grab some stuff for school. Then we jumped back in the car and head to GV for football tailgating/working in the Alumni tent. We got there at 2pm and worked until 7pm, when the game started. The tailgating for Ferris was sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings and was a major hit! We helped clean up and then headed into the game....what a joke! We left at the end of the first quarter...the score was 28-0, GV. We decided it would be best to just pack up and go so we would have more time to transform ourselves into Mean Girls. :)
Kait, D, and I at the Alumni Tent....BRR!
It's a buffalo...check out his sweet shoes! He only tripped like 8 times...that we saw.
We got back to the apartment at about 9pm and it was a mad free-for-all of primping. We managed to get ourselves all dolled up and ready to go by about 10:15 or so and were ready to do photos. Derek, D's boyfriend, came over to take pictures and became our chauffer for the night.Mean Girls! Just like the movie....sort of :)
I <3 my roomies!
The first party we went to was at our friends' apartment about 5 minutes away from ours, and it was....something. We obviously got there after it had been going for a while, and people were getting pretty obnoxious. We stayed for about an hour, but.....too many creepers plus too much alcohol= time to leave. We had to track down Kait because she had gone to a neighbor's for a different party, but after we found her, we all piled back into the car and headed to D's friends' house downtown. This party was a little slow and we didn't know very many people so we decided to leave and hit the bar.
It was costume night at the bar, always a good time. We immediately headed out to the dance floor and get our groove on. We saw a ton of people we knew, and they loved our costumes. However, things started to get ugly really fast... D ended up having a little too much to drink and getting in a fight with Derek. We didn't know the details, but we could tell something was up. Kait, KP and I all decided that it was time for us to head back, and when we found Derek and D again, she was crying and he was taking her home. Can you say, awkward car ride?
All-in-all, I would say the evening was a pretty good time. We had a blast getting ready together, but the parties/bar weren't quite up to our expectations. It's hard to not feel a little awkward at parties when you don't drink very much and everyone else is basically wasted. However, it's not as bad when you are in a group with those similar to you. There was a bit too much drama toward the end of the night for my liking, but overall, a good time. :)
Now, back to drudgeries....laundry and homework. Hope the week goes by quickly......REALLY looking forward to the coming weekend!
