Besides no one sleeping very great, our ladies night sleep over was a lot of fun. Just not enough time to talk.
We started by meeting at the house, then going to a local Mexican restaurant that didn’t have our call-ahead written down. 13 of us were there, 2 were on the way….we ended up leaving and going to another restaurant down the road. We laughed and ate and had fun there. We came back to my house, changed into pajamas and played “Would You Rather…?” It was hilarious! Here are some pictures from the night. I will do my best to explain them.
This is Rebekah during one of the “challenge” rounds. She had to choose between six or seven really weird things to do. She chose this one. She had to sit there for quite a while with a spoon in her mouth. She tried to talk at different times, but we couldn’t understand her.
Melissa and Christine were on the same team. One time Christine had to be quiet for several rounds, which was difficult for her, but she did it.
Angelique had to put into a pose and stay that way for two player rounds… she completed her challenge.
Mandy and Laynie performed a rap, after we begged them.
Melissa didn’t care for her challenge options, one of which was to “get on all fours with your behind to the group and bounce and wiggle to the beat of a song for 60 seconds.” I offered to play “Walk the Dinosaur” for her, but she just wouldn’t do it. She rapped a NKOTB song for us. Pure talent.
And though there were no behinds bouncing to the beat, she did provide a few moves to keep us entertained.

These are all the girls who were here. Julie and Coleen slept in the girls beds and were comfortable. Cindy was on the floor in that room on an air mattress and said she was comfortable, too. Rebekah, Angelique, Melissa M. and Laynie all slept on air mattresses and said that they were freezing all night long, but didn’t want to wake anyone up to try and turn heat up. I have since learned that air mattresses can make you feel cold because the air in them is cold. I didn’t know that. I felt horrible. Next time I have 10 ladies spend the night, I will make them bring their mattresses a couple of days earlier, blow them up and let the air get the same temp as the room. Christine and her sister, Genavive, stayed in the guest room downstairs. Melissa and I shared the master. She thought she was keeping me up if she moved, but she wasn’t! I just couldn’t sleep very good. We were both up bright and early. I don’t know if it was because we were ready to start the day or just ready for the night to be over! ha! We all needed more time to let our Mexican food settle so that we could stay up longer, eat more dessert, talk more, sleep later, etc, etc. BUT we did have a fun time, the short time we were here.
I was SERIOUSLY about to upload the last picture and tell you that it wouldn’t be fair not to post a picture of me doing something goofy during the game…..but I PROMISE I tried and I have used all my upload space!!!! Now I have to start paying or create a new blog. 🙂 I am not kidding either. I promise I will post it on the next entry I make after I buy some more space.
The Ladies Conference was good. I loved hearing from Angie Williams in regard to God’s Grace. If I had the time, I could probably write a short story on how amazing God was to me over the past few weeks. They have been rough, and I just about had a breakdown when the “break” I was soooo looking forward to fell through last weekend, but from my perspective now I can see how the Lord was working all of those things out to bring me to the utter end of my self. I will just say for now that I am thankful for God’s faithfulness in my life, and I am looking forward to seeing how He works through me in the days ahead. What I have been doing isn’t working, but I am sure His ways will work very well.
