My friends are flat

I am leaving the house for Relevant in a mere 5.5 hours.

And I haven't even started packing yet.

While my clothes aren't packed, my friends are all packed and ready to go!


These were my original roomies-- Amy, Karin and Amy.

The Amies really are two people, although some people think they are one person with a split personality. Beautiful Karin in the middle up there looks like a pretend friend that I cut out of a magazine. She really is that gorgeous, y'all!

What do y'all think of their outfits? Stylish, no?

I am SUPER sad that I won't get to hang out with these wonderful ladies this weekend. *sniff, sniff*

However, God has blessed by giving me 3 new roomies-- Stephanie, Faith and Natalie.

The funny (and cool) thing is that none of us have ever met each other. I hadn't even known them at all until this afternoon when they said they would have room for me! I know, I know... it's a crazy thing to do. (Boy, am I glad this is a CHRISTIAN Conference!)

I am looking forward to building a friendship with these thoughtful women, as well catching up with old friends and friends that I've known online for years but have yet to meet in person (until TOMORROW! woohoooo!).

Okay, I'm off. Leaving now in 5 hours...

wow that is amazing that all 3 of your roomies bailed on you. i think that means God has some kind of secret plan for you instead.

They should be proud for their flat selves to be traveling with you, after all, just look at how stylishly you dressed them!

I hope you have fun! :) You and your gorgeous flat friends. They are pretty stylish. I hope you make some great, new friends.

I wish I would have thought to send you one of my "popsicle-Lainie" people so you could take me with you too!

Take lots o' pics and have a wonderfully blessed time and tell us all the cool things the Lord does this weekend.

First of all I find it amazing that you made paper dolls out of your friends...! Second, I SO wish I could be your roommate! I wanted to go SO so badly... (someday?) and Third, I'm sorry things are so different, but I'm SURE the Lord will make you see how the changes will be for the good! :)

LOVE you. Make sure that you save everything you learn and telepathically send it to me in one big zip file all the way down here in Peru!

I'm gonna be flat friend, too! So find me with Kris (from WUHS). Don't know what I'll be wearing, but Amy, Amy, & Karin look lovely. :)

Amy said...

We do look pretty amazing and I love that you gave me such an awesome skirt! Hey, you should time your flight to make a stop over in Columbus :)

Tracy said...

Have fun! How sad that all your roomies canceled. God has good things in store!

You crazy kids--enjoy!

So the three gorgeous brunettes aren't going at all? I keep hearing about this conference. Must be so cool to meet these online people. Hey, take a FLAT ME! I want to go too!

I am so proud to have personally met your "flat friends." You know, there was a time that being called "flat" was just not.so.cute. I mean, not that I would know!
I am sorry your friends could not be there and I wish I could have met them. If they are half as cool as you, they are keepers!
