A Fancy Schmancy Get Together

Today, I got to see my close friends from high school! I made a Facebook event last week to get gather everyone together to meet up today, and it was really nice seeing everyone again. 

When I talked to Meethu and Emily earlier in the year, they were complaining about how they had so many nice dresses that they had no reason to where to, so I figured that it would be a good idea to kill two birds with one stone by having a get together after all of our semesters were over and have a fancy dress code. 

Mia came wearing jeans and a nice button-up shirt and sweater, but she went back home to change into a dress because she wasn't sure about how fancy we were being, lol. And Shanice came wearing a sweater over a button-up shirt and jeans too, but she had left all of her dresses at her dorm, so she had nothing to change into. Everyone else came in wearing dresses and looking really nice. :D

So yeah! We met up at my house around 12 since it's our usual meeting place and caught up with each other until everyone was there around one. Then we went to Cheddar's since it's become our usual eating out place and ate and chatted for an hour or two. Then we went to Target because Mia wanted to find something for her boyfriend since today is also their sixth month anniversary. We found a lot of different things there, but nothing for Devon, lol.

After that, Krista left since she had to go to her brothers place to watch his dog while he was away, and we went back to my place since Emily needed to leave soon and get her stuff. We stayed there for a while until Emily changed and had to leave around four, and then we went to Pets Mart to get stuff for Shanice's new puppy that she's getting tomorrow. Meethu ran into a lady that she new at the cash register, and we ran into two of our classmates from high school at the register, too. Small world, lol.

We ended up going to Wal-Mart since it was nearby and because we thought that the cages there would be cheaper--they weren't. We went back to Pets Mart and got the cages and ended up seeing a girl from my Econ class last year.

Then we went home because it was getting dark, and we were getting tired from walking around all day. Being in college, we never went shopping for that long, lol. 

So yeah, today was really fun. I hung out with my friends for around six and a half hours and made plans to hang out again after Christmas. We're planning on watching Les Mis! :D And we'll probably have a dress like a bum dress code this time, lol.

However, being my introverted self, after spending so much time out and with so many people, I need some alone time for the rest of the night, so I'm going to finish reading this manga and laze around. Maybe I'll finally get around to reading a book. :P
