I realize yesterday was Monday...the anticipated day I'd speak of my unforgettable weekend with a fellow blogger...and it was also St. Patrick's Day, but lezbiihonestt (if you get the reference we'll be fantastic friends) -- girlfriend was tired. I needed an evening to myself! Now that I'm feeling well rested, I'm excited to tell you all about my awesome weekend with Becky!!

Friday evening couldn't have come fast enough last week. Once the clock hit 4:30 at work, I bolted. I went home to tidy up, and change my clothes...then headed out to pick up miss Becky from the airport. When I saw her, it was like AHH she's real!! She's really here!

We instantly met Erin for Mexican food (as if there was another option), and we all had a blast. The night was just fantastic!! It's so insane to me how this was the very first night we'd physically met, but Becky chatted with Erin and I like we were all old friends who were just catching up. I love how that works.

After we chatted for what felt like hours over dinner, we hit up the local Jungle Jim's so that she could see what all the hype was about. I don't think she was disappointed. She posed with heaping masses of cheese...gorillas...and even agreed to mirror pictures. ;)

"Hey ladies, lets take a picture-- rude!" LOL this made me laugh so hard.

After Jungle Jim's, us ladies decided to head back to my place and just hang out for a bit. We talked and talked, and talked some more...then we popped in the Katy Perry movie, whipped out some glow sticks...and had ourselves a dance party right there in my living room.

We stayed up until about 2AM chatting our faces off, then hit the sack. We had a big day ahead of us the next day!!

We woke up, laced up...and hit the pavement at a local park to reach my next milestone of five miles. I haven't done this, EVER. So to say I was terrified and excited all at once would be an understatement. Becky kept me going though and we finished strong!! My usual pace is about 11 minutes, so to have an average pace under 10 minutes made my week!

After that huge accomplishment, Caleb and I made a killer breakfast for the three of us, and the day just continued to get better.

I took Becky downtown so she could see some sights and celebrate St. Patty's Day weekend!

Then I took her to Skyline -- and she LOVED it. Who wouldn't!?

That evening was really nice, we just went back to my place...took hilarious pictures, watched a movie, and chatted about everything for hours! It's crazy how it feels like we've known each other for years!!

Sunday morning, I had to take her to Holtman's donuts! They are mine and Caleb's favorites!

Then, just like that, the weekend came to an end. We both knew that it would go by quickly, as all fun things do. Luckily we jam packed as much fun as possible into our short weekend and we already can't wait to do it again one day! Becky, we loved having you here!!

Hope all of you had as great of a weekend as we did!! :)
