One Epic Weekend

Happy Monday, everyone! Although 'happy' is a hard word to say when you're still mourning the weekend that went entirely too quickly. The past couple of work weeks have been SO chaotic, but I've had August 21st on my calendar for awhile. Friday night was epic, and I don't use that word lightly. After close to 4 years of reading/commenting on each other's blogs Kristin and I got to meet!!!

Kristin lives in Minneapolis but her sister moved into The Ohio State University over the weekend so their whole family made a stop in Cincinnati before heading up north. I'd like to claim it was solely to meet me- but Kristin's dad and step-mom had friends in the area they wanted to see too, so it worked out perfectly. It was originally going to be just Kristin and I getting dinner together but an hour before she arrived I got the text that her entire family was coming out for the occasion. Totally fine by me! 
We ate at The Pub, not far from downtown and had an absolute blast. I was weirdly nervous at first, but had zero reason to be. Kristin and I talk pretty much every single day at some point. We have so many odd things in common it would be impossible for us to NOT be friends. Isn't it crazy that she and I both got engaged on our favorite football fields? And within 1 week of each other?! That's no coincidence! We were destined to be friends.

Her family was SO much fun and let the weirdo from Ohio totally infiltrate their weekend plans and talk about Skyline Chili, the Bengals and all things Cincinnati. Tom- you were hilarious, keep it up! ;) 

I'm seriously so incredibly thankful blogging introduced us and although we might live 700 miles apart, I consider her one of my closest friends and hope we can arrange more meet-ups in the future! Her sister Kara IS a Buckeye now so I feel like more visits to Ohio are a must ;) Love ya, Kristin!!!
