I adore long weekends… I love when Sunday becomes a second Saturday and you get another full 24 hours to fill however you want.
My weekend was grand – here’s a quick review…
It kicked off with mansions, oysters and Pimm’s Cocktails. Friday night two of my girlfriends and I made a date to explore the million dollar mansion – the grand prize for a local hospital fundraiser. We go each year and if we fall in love with it we buy tickets together … We each have our own homes, but we daydream about winning and moving in together under one roof together – a never ending sleepover!
Saturday rolled around & I met up with T and Boo for a fashion show in the Exchange District. I remember when T was pregnant wondering if our girls-afternoon-outings would change once her little tiny one was here… turns out it is just as fun since now I’ve got a mini-T to hang out with as well. She’s just as funny, just as charming, and where T never liked hugs, Boo overflows with them. Plus what afternoon isn’t made better by a two foot little girl twirling around in the middle of the room, laughing at the silliest things and always up for a cookie break.
Sunday was the icing on the cake – I headed off to spend time with friends at a cabin and we spent the afternoon playing hours upon hours of tennis on the courts beside the lake… no one had remembered their runners so we did it barefoot. I have no hand/eye coordination, but I did have a partner who had skills… plus he had a never ending supply of “hey, that’s ok!” “good effort!” “that would have been a great swing if you could have hit the ball!”. There was also a few “have you been drinking???” thrown in there … and I hadn’t been.
And today’s going to be a low key one putting my sore feet up… plus I’ve got some reading to catch up on…
I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend too!
