A Very Blogger Vacay

Most of the time when I take off work for 5 days, it's to plant my happy but on a Mexican beach.
This time, it was spent in the town of Columbus, Ohio.

Yes. I said O-H-I-O.
(You must be wondering, "What the hay is in Ohio?"

As you all know (if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter or read my blog at all), our weekend was spent with 3 others bloggers, Katie, Jess & Erica.

The first time I met Katie was when we vacayed in Naples together (read here) but I had never met Jess or Erica so to say I was pee-my-pants-excited would be the biggest understatement of my life. Not to mention, I was so so anxious to meet Katie's furchild, Rocky, and lemme tell ya...that little man stole my heart.


Tell me that's not the sweetest face you've ever seen?! (His...not mine...)

Since I know 700+ photos of the weekend would downright annoy the crap out of ya, I went ahead and made a photo montage for your viewing pleasure.But before we get started, I must tell you...the pictures don't explain the full story. You see...there are a few things not pictured...

Like the time Billy decided to "water" Rocky with Katie's watering can.

Or the time we bar-hopped in downtown Columbus with a steamer in Jess' Louie.
(Stanley Steamer had some hot dance moves, if I must say so mahself...)

Or the time Erica rapped Lil Wayne in a drunken $40 cab ride to our cabbee "Reggie" who we soon found out was not "single & ready to mingle".

Or the time I fell halfway down Katie's stairs in the middle of the night and had a rugburn to prove it.

Let's not talk about the 50 bazillion times I complained about being "hotter than a whore in church".

How about the time Billy made breakfast in bed for him and
Katie and I ended up eating the breakfast in bed and he ended up eating on the floor?

Damn it where was the camera when I needed it??!!

Katie & Billy were the best little tour guides EVER. We covered just about everything: from hitting up the Goat (aka: the pool) 3 times, to downtown Dublin, to many-a-bars in downtown Columbus, to THE Ohio State campus and even taking us ON the field. We went to the Columbus zoo, Katie's parent's house, Taco Bell, McDonald's and even Kohl's. (You know...typical places you go on vacay...) Anywho-without further adieu...let's get the show on the road!


Leaving Columbus was one of the hardest things I've had to do lately. Not to get all sentimental but there's just something so special about the relationship I have with all 3 of these girls and to not know when I'm going to see them again downright breaks my heart. It was a sad, sad moment when we were dropped off at the Columbus airport. Tears were a-flowin' and I'm pretty sure Beau and Billy thought Katie and I had absolutely lost it at this point. (Nothing new here...)

Jess was exactly what I pictured: beautiful blonde Kentucky girl with a Southern drawl as big as Texas. She rolled up in her adorable convertible and prissed her happy butt right on into Katie's house and made herself right at home. She talked a lot about bourbon and cows and was the Southern Belle I always knew she was.

Erica is an absolute doll. She drove all the way from Boston to Ohio (12+ hours) BY HERSELF just to see us. She's the sweetest little rapper you ever did see and she totally stole my heart and now has me wanting to make a trip to Massachusetts (who woulda thought I'd ever want to go there?!) She's the epitome of a sweetheart.

Katie, well, y'all already know about her and I's friendship. It really is so weird that I feel like I've known her forever when I've only been around her twice in my entire life. Not to mention, she lives 1,200 mile away (I mapped it.) But foreal, Katie, you need to go ahead and just move to Houston already. I mean, besides your family, friends and job, what do you have in Ohio? ;)

Katie, Jess & Erica: Thank you for such a wonderful trip and for putting up with Beau and I all weekend long. I just love y'all to itty bitty pieces and so look forward to the next time we get to see each other!! Thank you for all the wonderful memories! A trip to Houston best be in your near future, k? K!
