by saying "we may or may not" I totally mean we did.

If I do say so myself, we did a pretty great job of it too.

On a spur of the moment decision (much like how all of our greatest moments have started) one Friday night after youth, we decided that buying 4000 yellow sticky notes at kmart was the best way to make the most of the early hours of the morning. The boys took a bit of convincing but once they were in on the idea, there was no way our youth pastors were going to leave unscathed. We waited out on the road outside their driveway for about 45 minutes before sneaking past their censored lights and getting to work. An hour and a half and 3000 sticky notes later (yes we did have about 1000 left over... we may have over estimated how many we would need) we had completely covered their entire car. We did think about the fact that they might need their car for an emergency in the middle of the night so we left their headlights untouched because we're pretty thoughtful like that.

AND the best part about it - was that we never got caught in the act.

Until they found out who had been involved and they told the entire church staff in our staff meeting a couple of weeks later. I had to eat wasabi in front of everyone. BUT it was well worth it.

There are a few things that make me happy about this memory of ours. So I thought i'd finish off this documentation of a time I was a bit rebellious by adding it to my list of things to be happy about (as well as a few other things in-between). So here goes:
