Crashing Guys Weekend!

Keith has had a guys weekend planed for about a month or two now up at his Dad's cabin. No big deal for me. They've done it before and planned to go ice fishing....but they decided against that when they went to the lake and saw how unsafe it was. I decided to ask my parents to take Ella Saturday night so I could have a little break too. I didn't want the weekend to turn into a crab fest having it be just Ella and I 24/7, you know. Plus I knew there was no chance of me going since I already invited myself one night to a casino sleepover with the guys last year. hehe. Good times. :o) I'll admit though...I am much more a guys gal than a girly girl, and all of my friends know it.

Friday night was great. Ella went to bed...I did whatever I wanted! The best part though was that I actually slept in the middle of my bed that night! Usually, even if I am taking a nap or something, I stick to my side of the bed out of habit, but on this night I TOOK OVER THE BED.....And it was fabulous.

Saturday night, I planned on doing something with my friend Sheila, who's hubby Todd was up north with Keith. Our plan was unclear, but one option was crashing in on the guys. Keith and Todd had an idea that we were thinking about it because Sheila had asked if we could go up with them before they even left and the guys nipped that in the bud right away. Well we left it kinda a mystery all that day....not too sure if they would be pissed off at us for crashing.

None the less, Sheila and I decided to do it, but it wasn't going to be until about 8-9pm that night. The cabin is an hour away and Sheila would have to leave her dog at home alone and only wanted to do it for 12 hours. So we had our plan...Head up late and leave early. Then Keith called me around 5pm demanding to know if we were coming! Finally I said, "YES, we are coming up! Happy?"

His response? "Great. Bring some eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast would ya?" Todd also sent Sheila a text message telling her to bring donuts!

I was appalled that they were ok with us coming up only if we were going to bring them groceries. I guess half of the guys left on Saturday afternoon anyways and they were looking for a little more company to mix it up a bit. Enter Sheila and I! Who cares....we were taking a little road trip to crash their weekend.

We ended up taking the dogs with us. Sheila and I and our two big dogs in the back seat. It was like Thelma and Louise! :o) (just kidding, no driving off the cliff or anything).

Once we got there, they were all trashed of course. We caught up pretty quickly and just ended up playing poker the rest of the night after the guys got their fill of 4 wheeling through all of the trails. It was a little too cold for me. I couldn't help though but laugh at the Scooby Doo bowl in the sink. It just seemed so appropriate that during a guys weekend, they ate out of Scooby Doo bowls. Boys will be boys. So I snapped a few more pics of relevant things going on at the guys weekend.....

And a crusty spoon that I was surprised even sat on a paper towel.....

Beer and poker chips...which actually was my beer. Their beer of choice is Guinness, but there was so much liquor being mixed that it just didn't matter. That was all out in a snow bank that I wish I had taken a picture of......

Cant forget the Patron!

A little Texas Hold'em action....

My husband was the first one down....which is not unusual. He is still a party animal at heart! We stayed up a few hours later, but once I headed to bed what did this girl amongst the guys listen to to drift off to sleep? The soothing sounds of Norah Jones! How unmanly can I get! :o)

Keith sounds so great to want you to come- even if you do need to bring groceries. Sounds like a good weekend over all.

Only you can make a night of poker 'artistic'.

Sounds like a great time. I love the shot of the beer and poker chips. You did a great job documenting the evening.

I'm much more of a guy's girl than a girly girl too...almost all of my friends growing up were guys!

I was shocked to see that spoon sitting on a paper towel!!! :)

Hehehe! What a rockin' good time. Too funny they asked you gals to bring provisions. I too am impressed the spoon was on a paper towel!

P.S. Norah Jones - me likey.

Well, of course if you bring bacon the men wouldn't mind! That the way to their hearts, don't ya know? Looks like a fun adults only time! Those are the best, since we don't get them all that often now do we??
