Tis the season (for ice cream, the zoo, and friends!)

The weekend came (and went) very quickly. We were off to Columbus for the majority of the weekend...and goodness, we had the best hosts. They showed us the best time and catered to our every need, even when we didn't realize we had a "need". Friday evening once we got there, we went to dinner at a local sushi joint, then went to the famous Jeni's ice cream! You guys. It was UNREAL. I really never thought ice cream could taste so good. The employees were so sweet and I think I sampled over 7 flavors!

We spent that evening in their basement, where Andy started the most amazing, loud, crackly fire!!

The next morning, Megan took me to her favorite class at Barre 3! Holy smokes, you guys! I didn't know whether or not I was going to survive that class at one point, but I really loved it! Then we got breakfast at a local cafe, and I had some friends join me ;)


We got cleaned up, and relaxed by another fire before heading out for our fun evening at the Columbus Zoo! Luckily, Megan and Andy thought we should go early to beat the rush..and we really did! The line of cars to get in was probably almost 45 minutes long by the time we were leaving! We had SUCH a great time. Caleb and I had never been to a zoo together, so it was a blast. Laughs were had, lights were enjoyed, and ornaments were bought!





Then we ended the night with a competitive game of 'Like Minds'...complete with (you guessed it!) another fire!

How could I forget to mention their ADORABLE dog, Romeo??

Overall, we made a ton of new memories, did new things together, and had a blast with our sweet friends. Unfortunately we don't get to see each other much, but when we do, its a blast. What cracks me up the most is that we all met through mutual friends...but we clicked so well, you'd think we've known them forever! We got home Sunday morning and had ourselves an awesome time celebrating an early Christmas with Caleb's family...but I'm too worn out to recap all that fun just yet! Hope you all had an amazing weekend!!

  10. I'm glad you had an awesome time in Columbus! Yes, Jeni's! It has slowly crept its way to Nashville and Chicago, so I'm hoping for an Indianapolis one soon. Love your pictures as always! :)

  11. I've lived in Ohio for a couple years now and still haven't experienced Jeni's! It's definitely on my to-do list. :)

  12. Hey!!! I live in Columbus! :) Jeni's is my greatest weakness. There's one a couple miles down the road and I can't let myself think about it. I've been wanting to go to Wild Lights this year, but we still haven't made it. Maybe after Christmas. I love it!
