Of course, my silly medical issues weren't necessary...really body? Sigh. But I had fun nonetheless, and felt very loved by everyone around me.
So I've been planning Friday's adventure for a few weeks now. Boyfriend and I were going to go down to Arab to see Jessika and Jarrod. It was going to be an all day/overnight trip. Awesome right? Yes!
Well....Thursday night, my body rebelled. See, I've had a cavity for a while (gross, I know) and I have put off calling the dentist because it had never been a pain problem, and I didn't want to be a burden or anything. Silly me...Thursday afternoon it started hurting. That night, it got even worse. I didn't sleep at all. Every 5 minutes I had to sit up and drink gulps of water just to keep the pain down (my loads of ibuprofen were no help). So I stayed awake all night. Just so ready for 7am to come so I could call the dentist. I eventually got an appointment with them for that morning. Boyfriend was kind enough to drive me there and help me watch my little brother (mom and sister were at a school appointment, because my sister is genius child ;) love that kiddo).
Long story short, the doc gave me some meds, painkillers and such.
But I was not about to let that ruin my whole weekend. I still made the trip! And I'm glad I did, even though a few times I had to bow out of activities and go lie down....it was still loads of fun with some of my favorite people.
We went shooting, played with puppies, roasted marshmallows over a huge bonfire, and ended the evening with a viewing of Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein.

Fire! Shiny ;)
Jessika is great at capturing moments like this :)
"Do the Titanic pose!" Um...ok? Well, I like it anyway
Oh Michael, what are you up to?
Playin with a puppy =) =) =) (I have puppy fever...it's bad, guys)
Isn't that pretty?
Again, I think he's up to something ;)
My friends and boyfriend all helped take care of me and made sure I was having a good time (thanks to Jessika for always taking loads of pictures!). I love these people so so much, and they better visit me when I'm off at school! ;)
Anyway, I am still in recovery mode (meds don't tend to agree with my stomach...) and am trying to enjoy my restful times.
Have a blessed week!!
Allie Anne (as those three like to call me) <3
