What Do TX, OH, KY, & MA All Have In Common?

Yep, this is happening.
Everything is set in stone.
I can hardly contain my excitement!!

Allow me to fill you in.

A couple months ago I had this genius idea to see if these amazing blogger girls (above) wanted to make a trip to Ohio for my birthday next month and have a big blogger meet up. I knew I could convince Jess to come since she's only a 3 hour drive from me and we've already become besties, but I wasn't sure about Erica considering she lives so far away in Boston and well, Steph and I just went on vacation together. 

Ever since Steph and I met and went on vacation together, I've been depressed x20 that we literally live on opposite sides of the U.S. I'm not kidding when I say she is one of my best friends and my other half. I've missed her (and BBFT) so much. Being that plane tickets to/from where we live {Texas to Ohio-if you didn't catch on to that} are SO ridiciously expensive - we weren't sure they could come in May for my birthday.

I mean, what 2 Texans want to spend excessive money on plane tickets
to travel to Ohio to see little ole' me and Billy?

I guess they do because...
they booked their flights yesterday
and are staying with us for 5 nights!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is about to be the best birthday ever, I'm sure.
I was doing a big happy dance all night last night.
kinda like this one...

So, over Memorial Day weekend, we will have...
-the amazing Erica driving in all the way from Boston (love her)
-the Kentucky Priss, Jess, who will hopefully make the 3 hour drive from Kentucky easy peasy by NOT getting a 3rd speeding ticket
-Zebra loving Steph and her hubs Beau from Texas (Billy and Beau's bromance Round 2 is about to go down...)
-and ME hosting all of them at our house!

The best part?
I can't wait to show them
*my city!
*my friends
*my family
and have all of us together to just party and hang out!

The worst part?
This means I need to start cleaning & planning fun things to do
....like 5 minutes ago.
I mean, if they have an awful time, it's ALL on me!
I'm feelin' the pressure.

A big thanks to my loving husband who is JUST as equally excited as I am, doesn't think we are huge weirdos, and is helping me with all of this.

Is it May 23rd yet?
Blog Fest 2012 is about to go down.

...Rocky is even excited.

{Erin~Invitation is still there...COME! Carolyn and Kristin~you two will be missed, but I'm sure we will Facetime late night atleast 3 or 4 times.. :)}
