Things I Learned In Georgia

  • It's hell hot down there in July. The only way to comfortably be outside is if you're in the pool.
  • I can kill a blender with one batch of frozen margaritas. Dead. Rest in peace.
  • Just because 2 girls sleep in the same bed with one wearing only a pair of panties doesn't mean they're gay. Unless they spoon.... then it could be questionable.
  • Maryellen has muscles and likes to flex like a bodybuilder. There's a picture to prove it.
  • Big Daddy only has eyes for one woman and her name is Pug Mama. Even in a house full of crazy, sometimes half naked women who may or may not be giving him the look of love.
  • And Big Daddy loves that woman (or all the rest of us maybe) so much that he's willing to go to 8 different grocery stores and then drive 35 miles just to get the mix to make his now famous Gumbo at the request of those crazy women.
  • PIPO-in-a-bag makes for a really great surprise. But thank goodness Thor was in the house or it'd of been her getting the surprise of her life. LOL!
  • Every-single-person I've ever introduced to chocolate covered potato chips at first wrinkled their nose up at them. Until they tasted one. Then the choco-tater chips became an addiction that can't be controlled.
  • Cracktastic is a fabulous word! All credit goes to Heather.
  • Mali gave us a sex education talk using the pugs as her reference material. I've added the word "vadge" to my favorite vagina slang terms right along with hoo-hoo, vajajay, petunia, etc.
  • Robin is an excellent driver. The GPS sometimes takes us on very strange routes but we always get to the destination in the end.
  • Hibachi rocks! Except when you can't understand the chef.
  • Doris can keep up with the party girls. And could probably still pass a sobriety test. That takes skillz.
  • I'm a blog ho apparently. I was appointed after proving that I "held all the knowledge" about far too many bloggers.
  • Stacy-Tracy makes the most awesome guacamole. And Tracy-Stacy will bite your fingers off if you get too close to the bowl. We may need a guac intervention.
  • All little girls love to swim. All big girls love to be in the pool, too. But I don't think you can call it "swimming" when you just sit around in the water talking and drinking. :P
  • Robin, Tracy and I brought cornhole to the south.
  • We also introduced it to the Canadians. I predict it'll sweep that northern nation. And's not a "bean bag toss". It's called "Cornhole" dammit.
  • The TBG gang may have to soon purchase their own set as well. Hannah was so disappointed when the tourney got rained out.
  • Lisa S and PIPO are big cheaters. But in their defense, it was hell hot as previously stated and they just wanted to get back in the pool.
  • Many times over the weekend there was so much talking I think my ears started to bleed.
  • Kris was missed. So were Colleen and Hannah. But nobody had the energy for blow up dolls this year. Sorry... :P
  • It's not really a slumber party until somebody starts braiding hair.
  • Maddy loves her some Big Daddy and got so excited about it she peed on him.
  • The look on Heather's face when she walked in and saw the cake and gifts was so worth it.
  • Hannah will always have my back. I love that kid. Sorry... I mean "tween".
  • Speaking of tweens, Mali knows the entire cast of High School Musical by name and some of the songs. Whatever happened to like... Sesame Street and Dora when you're almost 4? LOL!
  • Kristen fits in our group so well that she kept getting overlooked during introductions cuz everyone just assumed she was there last year, too.
  • It's really ridiculous when two people sitting right next to each other text instead of talk. I'm not mentioning any names or anything, Alison. Oh wait. That was me too, wasn't it?
  • Stacy was introduced to Bud-Light with Lime. And even though she said not to buy any more (which was ignored) I swear I saw her drinking some later.
  • Catherine has decided that twinadoes are more worthy than the bloggy girls since she double timed it to California. What's up with that? Aren't we just as cute? :P
  • Angela doesn't follow the rules. And made us all look like suckas with an awesome hostess gift.
  • Some people have a very inappropriate, possibly even offensive sense of humor. Helmet... that's all I'm gonna say. Yeah I thought it was hysterical!
  • Kathy has fabulous taste when buying for a gift exchange. Love it.
  • Briana is even cuter in real life as the pics on Lisa F's blog.
  • Kim is way too quiet. But she probably has lots of ammunition to use against all the other guests now since she observed the crazy first hand.
  • Our host and hostess are some of the best people I know. They open their home and make us all feel so welcome. Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough...
  • Nothing can compare to a weekend spent with some of the most amazing, fabulous, smart, funny, beautiful women I've ever met. I'm so grateful for their friendships. I wouldn't be able to survive this wait without them.
  • I always start to miss my bloggy homegirls as soon as I shut the car door to drive away. And it sucks. I love you guys!

I'm embarrassed to say that I'm teeny bit jealous. I feel like I'm in junior high school again, looking at all of the cool kids from a distance. Does that make me a Complete Geek?

But I'm really happy y'all had a phenomenal time. Seriously. Really. Happy. :)

Briana's Mom said...

Well, aren't you so sweet! I think Bri is pretty dang cute, isn't she?! :)

And it is hotter than hot in GA. I live here and hate it.

So glad I got to see you!

Rhonda said...

Totally jealous too... :P

So, those chips that sound totally nasty...they're really good, huh? I'll have to bribe someone in low places. ;)

Wendy said...

So glad that you all had a great time! I love reading the posts of when you all get together! They are hilarious! :o)

Just wanted to say again how glad I am that you are back to blogging!

Pug Mama said...

Is it that Big daddy only has eyes for me, or that you all scared him into his room with nothing but Thor to protect him?????


sea star said...

You really should put some clothes on when you sleep. No excuse that you were to tired, but I guess you earned the Blog Ho title.

Quiturbitchin, it wasn't that hot in Georgia....was it? Bunch of wimps.

I NEED some guac and choc chips!

Lisa~~ said...

I snagged one of those chocolate covered potato chips and I've been dreaming about them ever since. As far as cheating, my lips are sealed...but I only cheat with the best of them ;-) It was great seeing you again.

Janet said...

I still say it's called "Bean Bag Toss." I mean, there's no CORN involved!!!!

M3 said...

Great list, made me laugh out loud.

Ok, I hate to admit this but Catherine and I are sitting on the couch with our laptops and she just emailed me (!). The girls are finally napping and we're just so tired...

Kayce said...

LOL! I too am a tad jealous...I'm gonna pop out of a box next year and surprise crash the party!

Sounds like you had a grand time...where are the pictures??

Catherine said...

Great times and great memories! Twas fun to relive it with your post. What a fun list you compiled!

Gotta run...just got an email from Mary-Mia who is sitting ummm...3 feet from me!

Liene said...

Sounds like you had a rockin' good time this past weekend.

Yes the idea of chocolate covered chips does make me turn up my nose a bit, but I'm sure I'd become just as addicted as other bloggers who have sampled them.

And yes it is hell hot in the South in the summer. It's even hotter here in Ar-kansas than it is in GA if you can believe it. Why do you think I so desperately want to move back to IN?

kris said...

Now I want to try one of those chocotaters- great list, you had me cracking up. And I missed you too :) Thanks :)

3D said...

It was called Bean Bag Toss but now...Cornhole all the way!

I would have stayed up all night to hang with you and the rest of the fab gals.

Miss you. Stay in touch.

Keep smilin!

Isabella's Mommy and Daddy said...

Yes you are sooo right it is HOT and HUMID in July ... And when you can't get in the pool because the sharks will attack you.. that is worse...
sorry about being so quiet...
But I guess I will have to do my bullets on you all..
I love ya all though..
Thanks for the chocolate covered potatoe chips... the kids LOVE them... My DH is afraid to eat one...

Buckeyes & Eggrolls said...

it really was a fun time wasn't it! I'm so glad to finally have met some of the great women I've been blogging with for awhile.

You need to make a little update to inform those who call Cornhole a Bean Bag toss because "YES" there is CORN involved.. LOL. It's in the bag :0)

Love ya!

I'm raising my coffee cup now to the great time we had . . .

Till next year!

OziMum said...

I'm thinking the bloggy bash, is getting outta control!! You need to hire a convention centre!!!

I propose... when I FINALLY come for a visit - we all go to Vegas?! Then poor ole Mel and Big Daddy can have a rest!!! (nothing like an Australian coming in and telling everyone what to do, right?!!!)

Headmeister said...

I will never forgive you for my new addiction to chocolate covered potato chips!!! You know, I have a friend whose mom used to date the head of a local potato organization and he said that his mom's housekeeper used to dip potato chips in chocolate before anyone else on the planet did :P

Shannon said...

Great bullet post! And I'm not ashamed to say I'm totally green eyed! What a blast. Cornhole down south, drink, broken appliances, drink, sex talk, guac, drink, friends like no other, drink, amazing hosts, more food and drink, new little faces-yay!, and laughter galore. Totally cracktastic if I may share in the lingo! So thrilled you all found each other!

Lindsay said...

Sounds like a blast! Totally jealous :)
