My friend Jena did a little search on the interwebs to find costume ideas for a group of people. When she mentioned us being Scrabble tiles, the English teacher in me rejoiced. Luckily, everyone else thought it was a good idea.
She bought all the supplies for cheap at a craft store and told us to wear black on top and jeans. Considering I hate coming up with Halloween costumes and experience anxiety over it, this was perfect.
Although there were nine of us, we wanted to have some freedom with the words we could spell throughout the night. Jena chose the word friends (very appropriate for the weekend) and then we had two blank tiles.
Before hitting the town, we had a Mexican fiesta. For dessert, we had the salted chocolate caramel cookie bars I had made. Emily made the bold statement that they were one of the best things she had ever eaten.
At T. Murtaugh’s is where we spent the next four hours.
Jena (or Giner as she said was her name) became the DJ
First prize was a Canon camera, and it just so happened that Jena’s camera had broken Friday night. We all decided it was destiny, so Jena took home the prize.
It was such a fun weekend, and I am so thankful to have fell into this group of women.
