As per any incredibly successful weekend, I have next to no pictures of all of us but about a million amazing memories. This weekend was nothing short of perfect, even if it did make me feel really old. My old roomie Rach, who was actually one of my very first friends in college pulled up a Timehop that was from six years ago. Now we all have legit jobs and know how to cook more than just bagel bites.
On Saturday, our morning started bright and early. Kickoff for Cortaca was a noon, so we started with bagels, mimosas, and giant coffees from Starbucks. We made it to the venue fashionable late (but well fed/drank and ready to party). It was a complete blast from the past – I saw some of my friends from my track years, old classmates, and friends from my freshman dorm. The environment as a whole was so much fun – I didn’t even notice that our football team lost. I made some new friends (including a very nice lady behind me at the Chipotle line that proofread my text messages for me) and caught up with old ones. Overall, super successful.
Since we were celebrating our team, I tossed one of my college tees that I usually reserve for sleeping. I stuck with the sporty-chic/easy to get around while drunk look and put on my fave Sperry sneakers!
On Sunday we dragged ourselves out of bed to grab breakfast and talk a stroll through Central Park. It was a picture perfect morning – the temperatures were in the high 50s and the sun was shining. It didn’t hurt that Starbucks launched their winter drinks menu recently (hello Peppermint mocha!). The morning ended way too quick and before I knew it I was off to Newark to catch a flight back to Atlanta. Thank goodness for my melatonin gummies – I passed out through the entire flight.
My dress is a birthday present from L’s mom. While I was in NYC I got really into the choker trend – Atlanta isn’t quite there yet! I borrowed this necklace from my friend Rach, but I’m looking forward to getting my own when I get back home!
