Blog Friends to Real Life Friends!

When we consider the blessings of God-the gifts that add beauty and joy to our lives, that enable us to keep going through stretches of boredom and even suffering-friendship is very near the top."

Y'all.. this weekend was the BEST weekend I have had in so long.
As you know, Jessica and I made the long trip to Mississippi this weekend to meet our sweet blogger friend, Nicole.

Jess & I were pretty nervous walking up to her apartment to meet her for the first time, but as soon as she opened the door it was like we had known each other for our whole lives. We literally squealed SO loud when we all saw each other.
It took about .5 seconds before we were chatting it up in Nicole's bathroom getting ready for dinner!

Dinner was so much fun! Nicole took us to a local Mexican restaurant :) There was literally not one second of silence.. our poor waiter couldn't even get us to stop talking long enough to order !!

After dinner we went back to Nicole's.. her boyfriend, Tyler & two of their other friends, Kayla & Chad came over to hang out! It was so much fun meeting them!!

Our first picture together!! :-)
The next morning we woke up bright & early and got ready for the UGA/Ole Miss game!
It was so much fun getting ready with all four of us girls in Nicole's room.

Of course we had to have a photo shoot before we ventured off to The Grove!!

Adam was also in Oxford for the weekend with his friends so he came over and hung out at the tailgate for a little while!! I was so happy him and Tyler got to meet.. they had lots in common and got along great!!
They are now called the "blog boyfriends" ;-)

After the game we headed back to Nicole's. We started talking about blogs & stuff and decided on a neat little (..HUGE) project. Can't wait to share more later once everything is in place!!! Trust me, ITS GOING TO BE AMAZING!!
Little ole me didn't last very long before I was napping.. thankfully Jess and Nicole got a lot accomplished ;-)

Sunday morning came way too early :( The first thing I said as soon as my eyes opened was how bad I didn't want to leave...
My favorite part of the ENTIRE weekend was the few minutes before we left that we spent before the Lord. We went to Him for prayer for our friendship & for our new project. I have no doubt that God was with us all weekend. I am SO thankful He gave us three the opportunity to meet each other in real life.

We will be friends for life.

We were SO sad to leave... BUT...

There are already plans in the works for Nicole & her boyfriend to take a trip to Athens in November!!!!!

So, in just 2 short months these three best friends will be reunited again!

Thank you God, & blogger for this amazing friendship :-)
