Spark! And it's like Gasoline...

Friday, Friday, Gotta get down on Fridayyyyyyyy.
Gosh, I'm like 2 months late on that quote, I know ("I know you're trying to sound confident, but you sound like a 50-year-old divorcee talking to her stepson.*"), but I'm oh so excited!!

You see, someone comes back today... someone very special... with hair the color of fire (only saying that because she will read this and want to kick my *ss for describing her hair this way, hahah): my Miranda!!!
{My beautiful Mir and Moi, in March 2011)

Folks, I don't just pick friends because they're funny, caring, warm, considerate blah, blah, blah, blah, snooze, blah! I like my women accomplished! That's why I haven't even seen this woman for so long, she's as talented as she is simppppppllllllyyy gorgeous and thus has been all over the country for her job for what feels like 2 months straight. However, if I were answering this question in an interrogation room with Mark Wahlberg (in his various cop roles), I would have to a) offer to do bad things to get out of jail (for personal reasons) and b) admit that I think she's only been gone 2 weeks. Either way, I'm excited for her arrival.

And the timing of said arrival couldn't be more perfect. This unapologetically due to the fact that Miranda and I have this little hobby... well, some call it "drunken recklessness", we call it urban exploration...
{Mir and I and various Festivals. This doesn't even come close to showcasing the amount of times we've fested together}

We're FESTERS! We don't shy away from Food/Beer/Wine Festivals. Whenever there is one on the horizon, we try to make our schedules work so we can go together...sip, roam about and carry on..

Sadly, this year has not been friendly to this oh so cultured hobby of ours. Our work responsibilities have increased and it's harder to find time to share this joy. But because the stars aligned and her work decided to fly her home... tonight we have the chance to fest with...
ELEPHANTS!

Off to Zoo Brew we go. Basically we get to roam the Oregon Zoo and see the smoochable animals, with a beer in hand and catch up on all our new stories (I got a new job, she hung with Snoop Dog... she so wins but either way, we need to talk!). I'm in Heaven. Cant' wait for tonight (can't wait to see you Mir).

Enough about me, what are you up to tonight in YOUR area???

*Thanks to Happy Endings for that quote.
Thanks to Oregon Zoo for the image of the Elephant with the Keg.

I'm sooooo jealous! Y'all are gonna have SO much fun! I LOVE going to fests too - esp German ones!

My weekend plans are BO-RING! I'm taking Babe to the park today for a playdate, then hoping Hubs brings me home a pizza. Tomorrow I'm going to Canton (giants arts and crap thing), then church Sunday. Wild and crazy girl, I am ! :)

The Hill House said...

She is a beautiful girl! And I have the feeling that the combination of you two beauties is trouble waiting to happen! :) Enjoy your weekend; we're laying fairly low this weekend and entertaining the kids. Kinda looking forward to a low-key weekend!

Tina said...

Kinsey Michaels said...

omg a zoo brew! that's amazing. i'm so glad you get to see Miranda again and catch up with her! that collage of the two of you is adorable! it's fun to share a hobby such as that, with someone.

Roaming the zoo with beer in hand? Never heard of such thing and much less having a beer in the outside world... maybe that's because here in NY the beer can not come out to see the light of day ever, or you get in trouble with the po-po.

You and your friend seems like a lot of fun. The part where you say:" I would have to a) offer to do bad things to get out of jail (for personal reasons) " ... sounds as if you have been reading my blog for too long haha...

For tonight's Friday activities in NY, going to see a friend's play in his band, have a few drinks and walk along South Street Seaport showing my friend the city.

Megan said...

you are seriously the queen of wine/beer/all alcohol festivals! can you please send fun things like that here to southwest Ohio!?!?

i hope you and Miranda have a GREAT time this weekend and i also am LOVING your title :-) nothing wrong with having a bit of Britney stuck in my head all day ;-)

Fashion Meets Food said...

According To Erica said...

Jennifer Fabulous said...

What a fabulous bestie, you have! Lucky girl! She is beautiful. I hope you two have lots of fun! xoxo

All that pulchritude and those happy-go-lucky care free relaxed partying looks make me feel a little envious. I may have to go to an AA meeting or think about horrible hangovers or something else to make sure I don't slip and that I stay sober. Maybe I'll just think about lingerie some more. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Be careful if you try smooching any hephelumps or other cute aminals at the zoo (that's how I used to talk back when I still drank). Have a fun one!

inHERshoes said...

damn. i mixed up my dates with the zoo brew. will be at a party instead, great, but it'll be sort of indoors cause she doesn't have a yard. but, friends are friends so who cares, bring on the booze. happy friday caitlin!

Dirt On The Rocks said...

how awesome to have a partner in crime!! you both are beautiful, successful women and that's what i like to read about. i also enjoy the fact that you know how to have fun and that you make sure that you pencil in ME time.

ahh speaking of which im so jealous I want to take my son to the zoo soon!

Slamdunk said...

I'll warn the local authorities that you and Miranda are out and about this weekend.

I hope you all have fun.

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

You have such exciting weekend plans! Zoo Brew sounds quite unique to me, bet this should be fun! And I'm happy to hear you to finally spend time with your friend!

Naghmeh said...

I love meeting up with a close friend I haven't seen in a long time and you just reminded me how much I want to go to a zoo! I've never been but always wanted to go and I'm thinking this year will be it :)

I hope you tore up the town. Tore up from the floor up. That's one of my old faves to describe someone's face. I'm horrid.
