Cloaks and Coffee

When was the last time you had a sleepover? Like one of those great sleepovers with one friend where you watch chick flicks and eat popcorn and complain about life and talk about friends and then wake up and spend all of the next day together?

I did that this weekend, and it was fantastic.

I got to watch my friend practice gymnastics and meet all her gym friends. She's really good, by the way, by far the best in her gym. I still think she could make it to the Olympics, but I guess that's not her top goal. She wants to be a doctor. (Doesn't make any sense to me. I want to have nothing to do with the human body- or at least not the inside of it.)

After that we watched the Proposal with her mom and sister, and it is a hilarious movie. I die laughing every time. "Take the dog! No, no, take the dog instead!"


We then watched Pitch Perfect in an empty apartment her family owns, and then stayed up talking until 2:00.

We woke up at 8:00, and 8:30, and 9:30, and finally got out of bed at 10:00. We took her mom downtown to the doctor's office, and my friend got super excited about watching the ultrasound and hearing the doctor's analysis. I don't see the appeal.

Then we headed over to the cloth store to choose out cloth to make cloaks for Fun Fall Festival-- the oh so excited festival at the end of Spirit Week every year. This year's theme is Fantasy, and we are dressing up as Whisperers. (Yes, I am totally dressing up as a character from the book I wrote, and no that is not lame or narcissistic or anything. It's just advertisement, duh!)

And then we looked in stores, and bought ice cream, and bought chai smoothies and sat at Black Coffee for a long time talking, and then went through the puestos in the zocalo and bought friendship bracelets.

We took a bus back to her house and brainstormed how to go about making a cloak. And then we hand sowed everything and made awesome cloaks. And then we focused on finding the rest of our outfit and deciding what else to wear besides a cloak.

And then she rolled up in a blanket on the couch, and so obviously I jumped on her, and we laughed, and she laughed about how she could feel me laughing, and then her sister jumped on top of me, and we all laughed, and played the "ha-ha" game until we cried and she farted.

(I wish I had a picture of this...)

And then we rolled of the couch and buried ourselves in blankets, and played hide and go seek with blankets on the living room floor. And we wrestled and tickled each other, and laughed until our abs hurt.

I don't even like cats. But this...

I haven't had that kind of fun in a really long time, and I'd forgotten how great it really is.

Basically, I had an awesome weekend, and I'm trying to make you jealous. Go grab a friend and have a sleepover. You won't regret it.

  1. Sounds like a great time :D The last sleepover I had was last week, and it was super fun as well. Except I had to leave super early, and literally woke up and had to go home in my pajamas :P

    But it all sounds nice. My sister wants to be a doctor too and like you, I don't see an appeal to it much
