Weekending

Ya'll, this weekend was seriously SO much fun! As you know (because I've mentioned it 50 times out of excitement) we had our annual girls reunion trip. We spent the weekend in our college town and hit all of our favorite spots plus some new ones as well. Friday night we got dolled up and had a fabulous dinner before hitting the town. We were all doing ok until we got to Metro (one of our fav bars) and the DJ started playing EVERY popular song from the 2005-2009 era...basically making it feel like we never left college. It was perfect! And then we shut down the bar.....yup, that happened.

Saturday we recovered and lounged by the pool while being served mixed drinks and I have to say it was pretty darn fabulous. I even took a nap - yup, hashtag parent life. We got dolled up again and had the best dinner overlooking the city and the Roanoke star and literally ate so much good food and wine. The chef was spoiling us with dishes to try and the wine was perfection. We had wine sent up to the room and actually stayed in that night. (I know, so old) It was fun to be in pajamas, sipping wine and lounging on the fluffy beds while having movies on in the background though. 

Sunday we got up and made a loop around our campus one last time before heading out. Next year we're all thinking Florida and hopefully more of us will be able to make it. If you want to do something similar - pick a weekend and a guestlist and tell the girls that the weekend will always stay the same no matter what but the location will change each year to accommodate everyone in the group. It has really worked out for us between weddings, babies and life in general. Girl time is seriously good for the soul!

Linking up with Biana & Meghan today for weekending
