Invasion

Early Saturday morning, a group of women went out for their 2nd annual Halloween breakfast.  They should have suspected that this breakfast would be a little unusual when they pulled in to the parking lot of the restaurant that was over flowing with pickup trucks filled with antlers, manure, rifles, and cowboy hats!
To get in to the Halloween spirit, this group of friends dressed "up" in pajamas, robes, slippers, and hair rollers.  They approached the restaurant in a jovial mood, anxious to get caught up with each other's life. 
They opened the door and saw a sign that read, "please seat yourself."  They looked around the joint to spy the perfect booth.  It was at that time they noticed they were the only ones in the room of the female gender!  They had invaded the local men's hangout!  Amidst the glares, stares and chuckles, the women chose a corner booth away from the men. 


This man is saying, "What are THEY doing here?  I left THAT at home!" 

The women had a wonderful time!  They laughed, cried, talked, ate, and got caught up on all the latest!

Emma and Darla

Lynette, Me and Valerie

When they left, 2 hours later, the same men were STILL there! 

Next year we'll go to the Primrose Retreat, and avoid the men all together, or we may just go here again and wear something even MORE ridiculous! 

p.s.  If you recognize your spouse in this group of men, apologize to him for us!

How cute! you gave all the men something to talk about. I hope you had a huge breakfast.

Kazzy said...

I am just glad none of you went dressed as a deer. That could have been dangerous.

Yvonne said...

LOL at Kazzy's comment ; )

What a fun thing to do--what a GREAT group of women.

Jenny said...

AWE, how much fun...I wore my pjs to work on Friday. The children kept asking me what I was.

I love how you got up and went as you were!

Barbaloot said...

I say you go to the same place next year and dress like the men:)

Natalie said...

What a fun outing. I can just imagine the talking and laughing going on in both groups. HA!

Darla said...

Ah yes, some of us were less couragous to come completely how we woke up. Connie won the prize. We had a great time! Maybe next year we dress up like men and go to a "girls" hang out.

Doran & Jody said...

LOL! How fun is that!!

Sadly I knew a lady in my other ward that would run around with rollers in her hair. And SOMETIMES she would take the rollers out but not comb the curls out, even for church. Silly lady.

karen said...

Ann Marie said...
