Weekend recap

Friday was spent working most of the evening because last week was absolutely insane. I did manage to breakaway with Geof to take the dogs for a long walk. The weather was gorgeous and a much needed spring teaser.

Saturday was the best! Jes and Amanda (our friends from the cruise) were in town from Minnesota for the weekend for the Parachute and Plain White T’s concert. We met them on South Street for drinks at Copabanana. They have some fantastic margaritas. It was so great to catch up and share some laughs. It’s easy to lose track of time being around these two. We left Copa and went to the TLA for the concert. A lot of people we knew were there and it was nice to see old friends and make some new ones. The opening act was Miggs and then Parachute came on. Their set was really good, but too short. Plain White T’s was the main act their played for what seemed like forever. During their set everyone ended up socializing and we made it a great night.

Good times

After the concert we took the girls to Barnaby’s and finally capped the night off at Jim’s Steaks. It was a late night to say the least and I cannot hang like I used to. It was all worth it and I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

Sunday we got the girls from their hotel and wanted to take them to PYT for a burger. The wait was ridiculous and we were told 20 minutes. After 40 minutes we took off and I vow never to go there again. We took them back to our neck of the woods and hit Pinocchio’s for lunch before dropping them off at the airport. It was fantastic seeing two of my favorite ladies and I can’t wait until the next time we meet again!

As a side note, I received my order from Allora Handmade and the earrings are gorgeous and even more beautiful in person. Highly recommended!

LOL! I read that first part and read "breakaway" but thought it said "I had time to break up with Geoff." I was thinking "why in the world would she do that?" and I was extremely confused. Glad to see I read it wrong :)
