'real life friend' weekend

i think there has been at least once that everyone in the DOC has said 'i wish my DOC friends were my 'real life' friends' ... as in, lived close, were able to hang out on a daily basis, etc.

on friday, a few weeks ago, my phone rang and it was briley telling me she was in the car and on her way to my house. my best DOC friend became a 'real life' friend. yeah, that's right, briley came in town.

photo recap time!

we went to the chow wagon ... 

where we had greater taters (AND THEY WERE DELICIOUS)

then we held up the world's largest baseball bat 

and checked ourselves out at the science center 

then we goofed off at lynn's 

we watched the creation of the garland of roses 

tried a new drink (that didn't have much affect on our BGs, yay!)

wore our derby hats to a party (and briley WON on the derby!)

and went to churchill downs! 

it's pretty great when you can meet a friend in 'real life' and finally can just say they're your friend. not someone you know through the DOC (which to me is basically full of real friends that i just haven't met yet). it was like we have known each other our whole lives, like a friend you haven't seen in a while and you pick up where you left off. 

next time we're hanging out together, it'll be just like that.
