May! It's good to see you!

I don't know about all of you but I had a fabulous weekend! I ushered in the month of May with a great weekend filled with laughs, friends and of course crazy shenanigans. 

This weekend Kristin, one of my closest and long time friend came into town. We met in college and went through greek rush together (that's actually how we met). We've been friends ever since and through all of the years we've definitely been involved in some crazy times together. So when I found out she was coming into town I knew it was going to be a good weekend. And good it was... this is us at my favorite local restaurant Fat Pattys. (Sorry for the quality, it was taken with my cell phone & sorry for those of you seeing it twice since I posted it that night to twitter @jmomiller)
If you ever happen to get to WV, then you must go to Fat Patty's. Best food ever. I usually have their All-American Club which consists of turkey, bacon, ham, 2 different cheeses and all the toppings you can think of! Yum!
Saturday, sadly I had to work so the shenanigans were put on hold for 8 hours. However, while I was at work I had the most random thing happen. I came out of one of the office doors and a woman I'd never seen before stops me. At first I thought, she was just going to ask me some random question. She asks me, "Do you watch Young and the Restless?" I was taken back by the question because I figured it would be a work related question so I had to think what that even was. I quickly remembered it was a soap opera and told her, "No" and then asked, "Why?"

The lady goes, "You look exactly like Victoria Newman! The only difference is her hair." So what do I do? I had to go straight to my computer and look her up. It took me a second to find her because apparently that's the characters name on the show and not the womans real name. I'm not gonna lie...I was disappointed. I don't think we look anything alike. Do you see a resemblance?

Anyways, back to the fun! So once I got off work we all headed to Coldstone because hello, who doesn't love some good ice cream on a hot day?!? Plus we did some shoe shopping. This is after we had enjoyed the sweet nectar of coldstone...
The 3rd person in this photo is our friend Erica (whom we also met in college and went through rush with, gotta love Phi Mu). I'm going to miss Erica because soon she's moving to Columbia, SC. She's headed down there this month to find an apartment and I actually might be making the road trip with her if I can swing it since I've got work, vacation and oh remember..NEW MEXICO bound! 

All in all it was a great weekend! This month is so full I can barely wait. I'm busting with excitement! I've got under two weeks of work left before all the fun begins. When I look at this months schedule of events I can't help but feel the whole spectrum of emotions! I can't wait for the new adventures!

Fun weekend! I got to WV once a year and have never heard of that restaurant, I will have to look it up and see if there is one near where we stay.

Haha you might hate me but I can kind of see a resemblance! I always get told I look like a "young Nicole kidman" it drives me crazy but I think in both of our cases it's not a bad thing. Take it as a compliment :)

I've NEVER had Fat Patty's! My sis-in-law loves it there, and we've visited her so many times this year, but I never get to go to Fat Patty's! Wahhh Wahhh... and the club sounds like something i would get, too. YUM.

Yummy Mummy said...

A great weekend! Yum...Coldstone! I heart their birthday cake ice cream :)

Jessie said...

I don't know.. I can totally see the resemblance!

Glad to hear you had an awesome weekend! :D

Leah said...

Glad you had a great weekend! I love club sandwiches - soo delish. My sister used to live in Columbia, and my brother currently goes to school down there. My sis fondly refers to it as "the armpit of the South". haha Hopefully your friend will enjoy it a little more!
