I feel like I haven't been here in such a long time because I had scheduled both my Friday and Monday posts last week and then I didn't post yesterday. I think I might be addicted to blogging.. whoops. Anyways, I am not feeling well at all. I'm pretty sure I picked up a cold from my air plane travel as well as partying like there's no tomorrow but I need to get my trip recapped before I forget :)
I left work at 12pm and went straight to the airport. I had decided not to check my bag and instead had the world's heaviest carry on which is not fun when the airport is huge. But somehow I managed! My bestie Alex picked me up and we headed to Tulsa where she lives with my other bestie Katie. They made dinner and then we got ready to go out to a bar called Treehouse to see a band that one of our friends from college is in. It was so much fun, until traveling/drinking caught up with me and I got sick and had to go home.. before midnight. I felt super lame!

I still wasn't feeling 100% of Alex and lounged around and did nothing pretty much the entire day. The only thing we ventured out of the house for was pizza from the yummy place in Oklahoma called Hideaway. Later that night, we all got ready and went to a German bar called Fasslers to have a chill night because we all had to get up and go to Stillwater the next day.

We were all up and ready by 9am to go to see Oklahoma State kick some butt in Stillwater! I don't know how to explain it, but I just love Stillwater. It brings back so many fun memories of college and it just makes me happy to see all the orange flooding the streets. We tailgated and took jello shots.. of course. Later, pretty much the best part of my day happened when I got to meet Lyndse who blogs at Blonde Oklahoma Girl. The second she walked up to me I just knew she was as sweet, pretty, and funny as she is on her blog! We just kept hugging and talking about bloggers haha. I had decided not to buy a ticket to the game because I can't ever sit still and watch so I had a lot of time to kill that day. I wandered around, met up with my old roommate Lauren, went to Old Navy and shopped while intoxicated, and got take-out from my all time favorite restauarnt in Stillwater called Thai Cafe.

After the game, we went to out "The Strip" in Stillwater where all the bars are and hung out. I got to see a bunch of my friends from college and it was so much fun!
Katie and Alex's crazy cat, Captain Tigger
We had to get up super early and drive back to Tulsa so Katie could pick up her Mom from the aiport and then Alex, our friend Jordan, and I lounged, ate, and napped the rest of the day. We watched American Horror Story because I only watch it during daylight because it's so freaky! Also, Katie and Alex have this hilarious cat named Captain Tigger. I'm not generally a cat person, but he's so funny and I ended up loving him by the time I left.
Katie and I got up and got ready and met Alex at their favorite Sushi place for lunch. Then I got to go to Alex's office and see where she works. After that it was sadly time to pack up and head to the Airport to go back to Colorado!
It was such a whirlwind of a trip and I can't believe I was there for almost 5 days. It was a blast though because I absolutely love visiting my best friends! I can't wait for the next trip, although I'm voting that we all meet-up somewhere different like the beach ;)
Oh, and before I go..
