Epic

That is the only word to describe this past weekend.

I finally, after 2+ years of friendship, emails, texts and calls, met my BOFF.

In person.

YES! This is real life!

Friday night was my birthday party, which entailed dinner and drinks
with some amazing friends and family. 

We ate at one of my favorite tapas restaurants
and enjoyed fabulous sangria with our delicious food. 

All day Friday I was texting with Lynn. 

Anxiously awaiting our meet cute ;)!

Yes, I'm a nerd, but ummm hello, she's my BOFF!

We had just been seated at dinner and I got the text
she was at the restaurant, so I ran down the stairs
and proceeded to be that girl that squealed 
and hugged her friend. 

Lynn was here!
YAY!
BOFF!!
Girlfriend fit RIGHT in with my friends and family. 
We had so much fun chatting and catching up. 
She is JUST how I imagined.
Sweet as sugar and twice as nice. 
It was sooooooooo wonderful having her there
to celebrate my birthday. 

After dinner, Lynn headed back to her hotel and the party moved to bar right down the street. A bunch of my kickball friends were waiting there to celebrate with me. And boy did we celebrate. 

The band was really good and it was fun to hang with my friends
and of course, the sissy boos.
Such a lucky big sister! 

Soon it was time for bed, and man was I tired. 
Sadly, we were up pretty early for kickball practice,
which was needed, but woof I was hurting. 

I grabbed Lynn after practice for a quick lunch
and then we finished getting ready at my apartment. 

It was kind of surreal being on the other side, for my first wedding
since becoming a Mrs. 
I have to admit, a bit of nostalgia washed over me when the vows 
were said. Yes, I'm a mush ball, but hey, that's me. 

After the ceremony, we all headed over to a friend's place,
to have some drinks and snacks while we waited
for the cocktail hour to start. 
Then it was time to head to the reception for
free drinks and party time ;)!

 We were all seated together at the best table, lucky 13. 
It was fun talking to the other peeps at the table 
and celebrating the night away. 

I even got Le Husband out on the dance floor,
SAAAAAAAAY WHAT!?!?
Someone didn't want his picture taken ;)
LOVE!!!
So much fun together!
 Sunday morning I woke up, got ready for church and drove to pick up Lynn. We were a bit early so we enjoyed a latte before the service started. 

Palm Sunday is always a fun and celebratory one at my church and it was great sharing the service 
Lynn. #palmwavingchamps

When service was over, we went to brunch with my parents. After some delicious food and great conversation it was time for me to take her to the airport, WAH! It just felt waaaaay too soon. 

Once Lynn was at the airport, I drove home and finally took the nap I'd been craving all weekend. It was glorious, if not a tad too short. Next it was weekend prep for the week…[BIRTHDAY WEEK]…and errand running before soccer. 

Normally I'd be all, wah it's Monday, but tonight is my
BIRTHDAY DINNER celebration, since family is
busy on my actual birthday [tomorrow].

Bring me allll the HIBACHI!!!!

LYNN! It was so fabulous to meet you, finally! I had a great time celebrating my birthday with you and celebrating Palm Sunday with you, too. I can't wait to see you again soon. You are an amazing lady and I love y'all to pieces. #BOFF 

Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend too. Make today awesome.

Ps.com:  TOMORROW'S MY BDAY! WEEEEE

 Linking up with these beautiful ladies today.

I am CRAZY impressed by how much you did for the rest of the weekend. I though about you yesterday and laughed because I assumed you'd still be getting over some of the boozin' from Friday.

Hooray for meeting internet friends in real life! I hope it doesn't take us two years! :)

Glad you had such a fun weekend. Meeting a friend and wedding, what could be better?

Stephanie @ Life, Unexpectedly said...

What an exciting weekend you had!! I bet it was amazing meeting you BOFF and spend a weekend together! The wedding looked like tons of fun, too! Somehow, people around me don't get married, so I barely ever get the chance to go to a wedding, but it's definitely an experience all over again each time. Have a great new week, Pinky!
