Reunited and it feels so good.

Remember that time sweet Lindsay paid me a surprise visit all the way back in 2009? Well, she paid me a surprise visit again this weekend! Okay, okay, I'd known about it for two weeks, so it wasn't exactly a surprise, but it felt like one because I never expected any of my friends to come all the way from Kentucky to visit me. Just me. Being the quality-timer that I am, I've rarely felt so loved.

Here are a few iPhone pics from our Missouri adventures!

Right after we were reunited & right as we began our roadtrip to St. Louis

Hit up Chick-fil-A on our way to STL. Duh.

The Gateway Arch (Seeing it was on Lindsay's bucket list.)

Lindsay was bummed after we just missed getting tickets to go up in the arch. Almost as bummed as that lady in that famous picture from the Great Depression. (It was on display in the Museum of Westward Expansion, which we settled for.)

Here I am imitating my ancestors. (As you've probably figured out from my long, dark hair, I am like 1/128th American Indian. I am basing that fact and that fraction on the presence of a really old photo of an Indian in one of our family photo books. As you've probably figured out from my white, white skin, I am like 127/128th not American Indian.)

Maybe taking pics outside the arch will make people think we went in.

Lindsay hung with new friend Gwen while I T.A.-ed yesterday! Worlds collided.

But soon after that, I had to drop Lindsay off at the airport. Sad face. Definitely shed a tear or two.

I can't wait to see her again (and all my Kentucky kiddos) next month during Thanksgiving break!
