last night these girls hosted their annual october party, in which we all went as characters from books and television shows and movies. our hosts were the lovely crawley sisters from downton abbey, lady sybil and lady mary. cary grant was there as well. pocahontas, or peter pan's tiger lily, she said it could have gone either way. the always talented audrey hepburn. one of the nicest kids in town from hairspray. angelica from pirates of the caribbean. mrs. scarlett with her lead pipe. batman attended this party too. and of course, i was catwoman.
all of us grazed on delicious food, some of us pretended the water was vodka, one of us ate more than her share of desserts. there was a game of clue. also a bit of screaming on my part (they forgot to mention the shrieking that would occur when i turned on the light in the bathroom). i can't remember half of what we talked about, but i do know that our conversations were constantly accompanied with laughter. this has to be one of the main reasons i'm blessed to have these people in my life - they make me laugh, we make each other laugh. we can be ourselves and be a tad on the goofy side if desired. and we simply enjoyed each others company for the evening. its strange to think that some of us are already in college, that the other half of us will be graduating this coming year. time flies. but nights like last night make me thankful i have the best friends a girl could ask for. people who are true and there for you. people who will dress up along with you. afterall i think we're all still kids at heart.
