Last night was a fantastic finale to an amazing weekend. After the pool, the girls raided the grocery store to create an extensive spread for dinner. I was in charge of making the sangria, which turned out more like margaritas. We used an online recipe that included tequila and I think the portions were off. It tasted wonderful, it just didn’t taste like sangria:)
But it was strong:)
Oh, and there was also a homemade mudpie complete with hand-rolled balls of cookie dough for dessert that was enjoyed around 3 am.
After dinner, we spent the night at a classic Dupont bar. The evening was full of wonderful conversation, melodious dancing, and lots of laughs.
Despite a sleepy cab ride home, we managed to rally at home with another round of appetizers and a competitive game of ping pong.
It was one of those nights that I just didn’t want to end in fear of missing out on precious moments with friends; thus, I watched the sun rise in Lizzie’s yard at 5:45 this morning. But, then I went to bed!
Naturally, I get a little sad after big reunions because gatherings that used to happen every weekend only occur a few times a year these days. So, as a treat, I bought myself dinner.
aka – I went to Whole Foods for a slice of pepperoni and a wildflower wheat (side note – this is worth a try, you can taste the honey and chamomile)
Take home lesson from the weekend: don’t let your cell phone sit in 100+ degree temperatures when you’re at the pool and then let it tumble a few inches to the ground.
