Friendship, Shopping and Pedi's

Recently I got to hang out with an AMAZING friend of mine! Trevor was out of town so I decided to make a little trip to OKC to visit my friend Meredith! We honestly hadn't seen each other in about a year and even then we only got to chat for about an this was a MUCH NEEDED visit! Meredith is one of my dear friends from college and was a bridesmaid in my wedding...

Just to give you a little history, Meredith and I went to same high school but never knew each other. We met each other our freshman year of college in a Poli Sci class. We instantly bonded for our love of talking!! haha! But really, we can both talk to a brick wall and have no problem with the wall not talking back! During our senior year is when we really started hanging out all the time. We would have wii and wine nights (it's exactly what it sounds like) or we would go out to El Tap in Stillwater and chat! Meredith was literally my saving grace my last semester in college when I was student teaching. I had a terrible experience and no matter how many times I called Meredith to gripe about the same thing, she was always there to listen and talk to me! Half the time she would drive over to my house and we would go on a walk (and of course talk)!

Anyway, back to hanging out this week...I went to OKC and we had an all around girls day! First up, lunch at Alfredo's Mexican Restaurant - which was delicious! Next up, we went and got Pedi's! This was much needed (a girls day really is not complete without getting a mani or pedi). Fun fact: while getting a pedicure, Russell Westbrook walks in the salon to get a pedi too!! Apparently, real men get Pedi's! ;) At least, this is what I'll tell Trevor next time I want him to go with me!
Here is my total creeper shot of him:
After our salon date, we went over to the mall to do some shopping! We did pretty good, however, we are bad influences on each other. When one of us would find something we really liked the other would say "oh just get it!" The good news is, we only let each other shop in the clearance items! So, we did good! After shopping we went to dinner at BJ's and I finally got to meet Meredith's boyfriend Connoly! We had a great dinner just chatting! We went to Redbox to get a scary movie, but we ended up not watching it because we couldn't get things to work right. That night we stayed at Meredith's brother's house because she was house sitting for him and his wife. We ended up staying up really late just chatting about life! Of everything we did that day, the best part was just talking. Meredith is such an inspiring person. I definitely opened up to her about things that had been on my mind and she had such good words to share that were really encouraging. Nothing beats a great friend! One of things we talked about was a book called Jesus Calling
Just since talking to her, I have seen this book on pinterest and on the TV. We even read a little that night and it really made me want to go and buy it! I plan to do that tomorrow- so I will let you know more when I have read a bit more. The review that I consistently hear about this book is "I feel like it was written just for me." Can it get much better than that? So I am anxious to jump in and read it!

Overall, I had a WONDERFUL time with an AMAZING friend!!!
Of course, we couldn't make it through a night without getting at least one photo together!!
