Thanksmas Weekend!

Hey girls!

This weekend, 2 of my closest friends had their annual "Thanksmas Mountain Weekend!"

This weekend is personally one of my favorite weekends of the year! On Friday afternoon, 11 Meredith Angels headed from Raleigh to Tennessee! It was a four hour drive, and the entire weekend was filled with so much laughter, and fun! I have so many great memories from this weekend. It was truly so nice to spend time with the girls! I have known most of them since the first week of my Freshman year.
On Saturday, we headed into Blowing Rock, and I did some Christmas shopping! We ate lunch at a great BBQ spot, and spent some time downtown. Next, we hit the outlets! We got back to the house, and had a wonderful dinner! After dinner, her parents built a fire! We made s'mores, and had a great time! Sunday, we stopped in downtown Boone on the way out, it was so pretty! Such a great weekend!
It became true this weekend, that we could go years without seeing each other, and once we do, we pick up right where we left off! That is just the best feeling!

These girls, along with my sweet roommates have truly become my sisters over these last 4 years, and I am just so thankful each day to be blessed with such wonderful, beautiful friends!

It is going to be extremely hard to watch this year end. I am not good with goodbyes, actually, thats an understatement, im awful with them! I'm way to sentemental, and I get almost depressed when change occurs. I am already beginning to get emotional, and "miss" my friends...lame I know! Its all just very bittersweet!

I wont graduate until December, but most of the girls will be graduating this May. They are all going to do such great things, and I am so excited, but so sad that this is our last year together!

One of my good friends recently got engaged! I am just so happy for her! She and her finacee are so cute together, and they are going to be so happy! Her ring is absolutely gorgeous, and she is so happy! This weekend, in the mountains, we looked at bridal magazines, and talked about all of our excitement toward her future! AHH, what a big time! My friends mother set up a beautiful dining table for us when we got to the Mountains! It was so cute because L's chair had a wedding magazine, a diamond ring paper weight, and a heart!! The rest of us had mini diamond rings, and wands! SO cute! She told us "our prince would come!"

Here is a picture from the night L came to tell K, JL, SB, and I she got engaged! YES, we were in our pjs, and had removed all make-up, but this moment HAD to be photographed, because she is the first girl in the group to get engaged!!!!!

Here is the picture we took in the Mountains looking at her ring! YAY!!!!!

Here are some other pictures from this weekend!
