Saint Louis Day 1: Meeting Kristen!

Saint Louis Day 1: Meeting Kristen!

What  a great trip to Saint Louis!  First, thank you Kristen for hosting us!  You were the best host!!  Now, on to the recap!

IMG_20121019_113750We got to Saint Louis around 11 AM and grabbed some lunch at Schlafly’s Beer and Grill (a local Saint Louis brewery that has a restaurant in the terminal also).  I had the “Slinger” with an Octoberfest Beer.  Delicious!  I definitely recommend stopping there if you need a bite to eat while waiting for your plane.  We were hanging out because Tiffany was getting off her plane at 1.

Andrew also had a soccer game so we headed out there and froze our butts off while we watched.  Thank goodness Kristen had extra coats to lend us!

Kristen and Andrew were really awesome, letting us invade their house for a couple of days.  Andrew was really friendly and made buddies immediately!

Finally, it was time to head to the hotel for Rob and I (Tiffany was staying at Kristen’s house).  We stayed at the Courtyard Marriot, out past the airport.  It wasn’t too bad of a drive and we were happy with the hotel.  The room was nice and basic, and the bed was super comfy!  We were exhausted and went right to sleep!

  1. It’s great to see you guys had a good time. I’m living on “hospital time” still except for that breaking out that Brother and I did on Sunday…for almost 5 hours of drinking and dancing at the Rock & Roll Marathon (where I/ we timed out and had to leave…boo!).
