But it wasn't all squeals & tinkle. I'm po' folk & the realization that there would be no way I could afford to make the trip sucked the joy right outta me. Even when 2 friends offered to split the gas for the trip w/ me, I knew it would put us in a bind if I went. Then a 3rd friend offered to split the cost of the trip & I started spinning the numbers around in my wee little brain. The cost for driving my van all that way was high, but more do-able than before. However, when 1 friend reminded me that (duh!) she has a car that gets awesome gas mileage, suddenly it all fell into place & our epic, estrogen-filled road trip was born!!
In T-minus 20 days (and counting!) 4 girls will pile into a car & make the 5+ hour trek to meet one of our heroines. When we arrive at our destination, we'll add a 5th member to our group before embarking on an adventure so awesome, so amazing, so unbelievable that I'll be glad I signed up for those free samples of Poise bladder leakage pads!
