Kentucky Comes To Ohio..



It's about time.

After months and months of emailing, texting, phone calls, "virtual shopping dates", and facebooking...super sweet Jess is making the 3 hr drive from her stompin' grounds in Kentucky to our house here in Columbus. 






Can I get a *Woooo-Hooooo*<--- Vicki Gunvalson style, maybe?


{this is how excited me and Billy are}


Although we haven't met yet, it still feels like we have. Ever since we started following eachothers blogs, we became instant friends.


We may have not grown up together as kids....


or caused chaos together in our wild and crazy teenage years 
and in college....




but she has been nothing but a great friend to me and I really do consider her one of my best friends. Blog world is pretty awesome I must say. Jess was able to get off of work a couple hours early today to make the drive here and get settled in before going out to dinner with a bunch of Billy and I's friends. The crazy OCD type A personality that I am, I already planned most of the weekend out so we can get in as much fun in before she leaves...

We have dinner reservations tonight at a restaurant Jess has always wanted to go to and I may have a few little other surprises up my sleeve. Some of Billy's family are also coming in town to party so it's about to be an EPIC weekend.


You better believe there will be plenty of this:


with yummy eats & good friends too.


and of course...
 I'm going to show her how to tailgate like a real OSU Buckeye at THE Ohio State University! and she is going be hooked & forget about UK football all together.






Heck, even Rocky is excited...




it's PARTY TIME!


So tell me...who all has met a blog friend before?! If you haven't, would you want to?Share your thoughts & experiences with me :)


I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.

{PS-SW airlines is on my shitlist for not allowing my amazing Stephy to join us. Steph, we will make sure to send you lots of abnoxious picture texts. hugs. ;)}


xo.

  3. I'm from Kentuvky too. I have only met one other blogger and she lives 30 minutes from me. I am so jealous of all these bloggers traveling and having blates. I wanna go on more!

  7. i've met a LOT of bloggers. my first was Jenn from Life as Jane Doe. And then I met Ashley from Run With Me when we were both in Charleston at the same time. But the biggest blogger meet-up I've had was with my bloggy bestie Lindsey from The Bargain Blonde. I went to meet/see her in Dallas for her birthday back in August. It was amazing and not awkward at all. Before we even met we planned a trip to New Orleans together and next Thursday we'll be doing that.

    you'll have so much fun! it's crazy how this little blog world works.

  8. So much to say. So sad I couldn't come. SW Airlines has to go and rain on my parade...

    I need to meet Rocky and go to a Buckeyes game too. I WILL make this happen one day.

    Yes-I fully expect many photos sent my way and perhaps even a video. Oooh-good idea. Ya-so make it happen!

    I didn't know she was only 3 hours away! I just checked and we are exactly 1189.5 miles away. Crap. No driving for me.

    (PS-the photo of the kids with oranges in their swimsuits is priceless. You know you did that as a kid...)

    I LOVES y'all! Hope y'all have so so SO much fun! I know you will...

  9. So fun! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and its just as EPIC as you hope! I don't know where I land in the whole meeting blogger friends face to face. I have never met one. I think mostly it's because you get an idea in your head about who someone is, and then they do a vlog and they are totally different. You may like them better, and you may not. Maybe it's fear of the unexpected. Then again, you and Jess text, and talk so I'm sure you know exactly what to expect! Have fun!!!!! :)

  32. Last winter we did a Columbus blogger meet up (before I found your blog, swears!) and it was amazing. It was great to finally meet all my virtual, bloggy friends and make them IRL friends. I loved it! I want to do another Cbus blogger meet up ASAP - to which you're invited! - and even do an out-of-state blogger meet up. Hope you ladies had fun this weekend!
