Occasionally in life you find a really great friend. One who is so similar to you from your likes to your struggles and everything in between. And sometimes, that person lives 600 miles away.
I got to know Katie four years ago through this little blog....the birthplace of some of my best friendships. We began emailing and eventually texting and four years later basically know everything there is to know about each other.
So when she was deciding on plans for her birthday, I was so excited she chose to spend it with me in Atlanta! It was a whirlwind trip but we fit so much in.
Friday night dinner! Took Katie to my favorite Mexican spot with way-too-loud music. But seriously, if you haven't had tacos with fried pickles and blue cheese, you haven't lived.
Saturday we shopped and coffee'd and lunched and talked our faces off. Saturday night we celebrated her birthday...three days premature but when in Rome right?
Katie and I at Buckhead Pizza....a new spot for me but a fun little Italian joint!
then we did something that I have been wanting to do for years!
And that would be visiting the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM.
This...is living people
We dubbed this picture #manhands...a glorious trait I inherited from my dad! haha
Another reason Katie and I are soul sisters is her favorite food is also chocolate milk....I think that counts as a food group right? So Saturday night ended like this.
I mean...we can't be tamed!
Such a super fun night!
Celebrating birthdays and New Years!
It monsooned in Atlanta on Sunday so after a failed attempt to walk the beltline, we found ourselves holed up in a fancy little coffee shop (our literal 5th attempt at finding a coffee shop with parking!) Then spent hours chatting in my living room before her fight back to Indiana.
So Katie....selfie-pro, should-be-DJ, lover of lipstick and dresses and stories and hilarious auto-corrects and one of the most gorgeous and genuine-hearted people I have ever known, thanks so much for sharing your birthday with me! Can't wait til this crazy life brings us to the same city again!
