speaking okie (part i)

There is something you should know about Oklahomans (or at least my best friend): they (she) will go great distances to visit friends, have fun, eat good food, and listen to good music. Yep, she's the best. Throughout my 4 days in Oklahoma, we spent time in Oklahoma City, Dallas, Muenster and Tulsa--driving at least an hour and up to four between each one. It was fabulous, and made for yet another unforgettable adventure.
 [Friday, 7:30am CST: breakfasting at K's house... followed by emailing, working, curling K's older sister's hair, taking photos of them both before they left for Match Day (she's Seattle-bound for an internal medicine residency!), and more working.]
 [12:30pm CST: changing environments to keep work productivity at its peak, then drinking another cup of coffee (and admiring cupcakes) at Cuppies and Joe.]
 [8:00pm CST: enjoying a glass of refreshing rosé at Ludivine while listening to K and a med school friend recount hysterical stories from the past year.]
[8:30pm CST: still at Ludivine, but now sitting at a table with the two girls and the Roasted Bone Marrow appetizer "we had to try." (I wouldn't say I necessarily liked it, but I didn't not like it). Also enjoying an exquisite bottle of wine.]
 [9:15pm CST: treating the girls to Ludivine's Dulce de Leche Bread Pudding as a thank you for being such lovely company already. (I only had a bite or two as I was full from my entrée - the Oklahoma Rabbit Confit).]
[10:30pm CST: having a beer and mingling with more med school friends at the neighborhood dive-y sports bar, Cock O' The Walk (read/said quickly).]
 [Saturday, 9:30am CST: playing co-pilot to K as we drove to Dallas, TX.]
 [12:30pm CST: making St. Patrick's Day mimosas for myself, K, and a few of her high school friends at one of their apartments.]
 [2:00pm CST: drinking green beer (and snacking on green velvet cake balls) at a Dallas house party with K, more of her high school friends, and other OU grads.]
 [4:30pm CST: devouring a delicious Fadi's Vegetarian Sampler with whole-wheat pita bread in hand and a tall glass of water nearby.] 
 [11:00pm CST: rallying after a day of drinking so that we could consume more beer I could determine whether or not K's boyfriend is worthy. (He is.)]
Sounds like quite the adventure, huh? It was :) but what you see above was literally only the half of it. I'll be back soon with part two! Until then, HAPPY FRIDAY.
