The REAL Story

Alright......So if any of you have seen Jamie's blog (at right)- you've seens al ittle snipet of pics from our goodbye party for Roxann. Well.... Leave it to me to tell the REAL story about what happened there. You can also reference back to our Christmas party. OK- let's start at the beginning. Roxy's hubby went and had to get a job in Kansas.... yah- what was he thinking?! so obiviously- ROxy has to pack up everything and move out with him. We had anice little goodbye party for her... let her know how much we love her. We had planned to have 2 pages done to go in a little album as a little gift to send off with her. Of course I wasn't done with mine by the time she got there- but it got done anyhow- here's the pics of the first page of all of them. I may need to explain- some of them need no explanation. 1- My page... i'm the only cool one with rockin pics with this girl... it's cause' she loves me the most! 2- Loverly Kristine..... one of kristine's many faces she makes quite often! 3-Jamie's page.... self explanitory. (maybe you should ask her how she got this shot?!) 4- And then Suzy Q's page..... she found this cutie patootie story and anrrowed it down and made this cute page out of it! If you can read it.. it really is sweet. Oh,.... and this is a pic of ROx when she found out she was getting something from us..... does her face say it all? It's like she was scared er somethin?!
enough said on that. SO now we'll get into the juicy parts... hahahahha- we can't have a TRUE party with these crazy girls without Margaritas and daiquris. Well.... the store they usually buy them from, doesn't allow "take out drinks" anymore- which was a HUGE tragedy! SO they had to settle with the bottles that Roxy is sporting here. Yah... this is a very becoming pic- this is Roxy in true form. Honestly- the girl doesn't drink- so it's pretty funny when she does! Rox... does Ike know about this?!

Here are the pics of us girls with Roxy as she read each of our pages. You know... Roxy is a BIG BABY!!!! She started crying even before she opened the book! SO of course, she made cry baby Kristine cry- and then they tried to get Jamie to jump off the cliff with them- but that didn't work... Jamie ran away as fast as she could! Suzy doesn't have an emotional bone in her body- she can't cry... (it really does take A LOT to get her to cry) - and me.. well- I didn't even want to go there.. got to maintain my MO and be the tough one. Had to save it for when I was all by my lonesome- no one knows I cry..... ;)

The part really was a lot of fun. Most of us (ahem) actually got some work done and made some pages. I won't mention any names though. Here's a pic of a true Roxy face... man I'm gonna miss this girl!And this is a not-so-typical face of Roxy-poos..... don't shoot me girl... had to do it! Caught this moment when she was reading my page of course. ( maybe it was someone else's... but I'm sure it was mine!) Let's just make sure we never see this face again eh?!
Poor baby!!!! Just breaks your heart doesn't it? WE continued to have a really fun night. Got a nice picture of all of us. Aren't we just a bunch of babes?! Then there's the not-so-cute one....... just keep in mind that this pic was taken after several drinks. (just for the record..... Suzie and I don't drink- so... we have no excuse for our behavior!)

Yah- I know we're cool.... just don't go being all jealous about how cute we all are k?!
WEll..... the party was a huge success.... we all had a fun time. The store wreaked of alcohol, we laughed and cried, got some pages done, and had a nice hang over the day after. Roxy is now gone. Don't know when we'll see each other again- very sad.... she was seriously a wonderful friend. For those of you who knew her.... I'm sure you'd agree at how awesome she was. (is this a freakin funeral or what?) One last thing to share.... this picture.... I"m not gonna say a word. The phrase "a picture's worth a thousand words"... well- this one's worth at least double that!
