CAMP THOUGHTS 2017 + PHOTO CRASH // legit jumped in the lake in OCTOBER + wilson made it on the road trip



I told ya that Wilson (my car...am just going to have to say this from now on cuz of what Gabby said in my last post LOL) and I + my older sis went on a road trip this weekend. It was to my legit most favorite place on earth, waaaaaaay up north in my home state.

It's a beautiful place, with a crystal clear lake, and pine forest around you, with a chapel full of hearts on fire for God and LIKE THE BEST FOOD IN THE WORLD. 

totally had to use this gif again 

We went last year. It was my first time  and, wow. I don't think I can even express how much I grew to love that in a short period of time. PLUS I MET SOME AMAZING PEOPLE. One of which, became my adopted grandma. She's the sweetest. We've kept in contact throughout the year and well... I really really really wanted to see her again. I sneakily asked her which weekend she would be attending the ladies retreat - she told me. Then she was like;

"ARE YOU COMING?!"
to which I replied "IDK I HOPE SO!"

legit. HEHEEE. My sis and I then signed up to go on that same weekend, asked to bunk with her + our gang of fantastic ladies, drove up there without telling them AND THEN SUUURRPPPRRIISSSED THEM. Legit we were all screaming. can I say awesome or what? 

Except now we can never pull that same surprise again *pouts*  

But to be 100% realistic, even that wasn't the best part. It's like this place is a piece of heaven and tbh a weekend is WAY WAY WAY WAAAAAAAAAAAY too short. like can I stay for a week PLZ. Also there is a zipline there. hello. yes. 

Bree and I decided to jump into the lake right before we left. It was 71 out and it felt warm enough. So, we did it. I THINK WE KINDA FORGOT IT WAS OCTOBER? no wait, we remembered. It's just that we do nutty things. ALSO WE FORGOT THAT ITS SPRING FED WHICH KINDA MEANS IT IS ALWAYS FREEZING????

oh. plus we forgot to bring towels. shhhhhhhhhhh. forget I said that


[DISCLAIMER: it was actually one of the best parts. doing crazy things sometimes works like that]

[DISCLAIMER: and when i say sometimes I MEAN SOMETIMES so beware]

btw can we forget that i had probably 10139851480158409583498 snickerdoodles???? thx
