What you all have been waiting for....My OKC trip

Ok well since everyone is super excited and antsy to hear about my trip…..

We had an awesome time!! It was hell getting there but it was well worth it! The weather on the East coast was not conducive to air travel!! Both my flights were delayed, which meant I got in at 2:30 am instead of 11:40pm. Not super bad but it was 2:30 am his time which is 3:30 my time and I got up at 4:30am!! So needless to say I was exhausted.

I was so super nervous to meet him, so bad I think I was driving him up a wall! But thankfully because of the delay I forgot all about being nervous to meet him! So that had its benefit! The second half of the plane ride from Dallas to OKC I was so happy and excited I couldn’t stop smiling!

I didn’t feel weird at all seeing him or talking to him in person. I wasn’t sure how it would be but it felt natural. We chatted and fell into a comfortable groove.

He took me to meet his grandfather….so adorable!! And his mom…LOVE her!! I think she was my second favorite person on my trip ;) First words out of her mouth when she saw me were “you don’t look sick” haha!!! But she didn’t mean it in a bad way! Hello she has 2 kids with CF!

He took me to some great restaurants and we walked around Bricktown (revitalized area full of old brick buildings). It was cute, but dead since it was so early.

Monday he worked and I slept haha! Then we had dinner with his family for his and his sister’s birthday. It was a lot of fun. 3 CFers at one table…a lot of enzymes and coughing haha! It was like a meet and greet ;) Ok well I did the most coughing being the “sickest” one.

I left on Tuesday morning….bright and early. I was sad to go but didn’t cry until I got on the plane. Then I cried from OKC to Dallas. People on the plane probably thought I was crazy. Wouldn’t be the first time!

It was good to be back in Philly but I miss him already! Luckily we see each other in 2 weeks!!!!!

All in all it was a fabulous weekend and I am so glad I went. I can’t wait for many more weekends like it!

Here is a picture of the two of us for those of you who aren’t cool and don’t have Myspace ;)


  1. Aww I am so glad you had a good time. Sorry about your delay, man that sucks. I'm guessing its his turn to fly to you in two weeks?

  2. Actually he will be in Boston for work so I am driving up to meet him :)

  3. Oh I'm so happy for you guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The picture brought tears to my eyes Amy. You two are some of the most awesome CFers I've ever gotten to know. Glad you only have 2 weeks to wait for another visit. :)

  4. I can't believe you were right here in OKC! I'm so glad you had a good time.


  5. Damn I suck for not having MySpace anymore.


  6. Aha! I've been wondering all this time. Looks like a happy trip, I am glad for you!
