Weekend Recap: Cocktails, Cupcakes & Good Friends

Does anyone remember the Sound of Music? Aside from “Edelweiss”, “The Hills are Alive” I think of Julie Andrews belting out her version of Friday Faves : “These are a few of my favorite things” since this weekend was absolutely gorgeous & full of great times, I feel like if I was actually creative I could put my own spin on these. However, for the sake of everyone’s sanity, I’ll list it off…

On Friday night my bestie from High School was in town, Kaitlin, and played bartender and made absolutely sinful cucumber basil gin martinis. Seriously, I’m not sure if a single drink could encapsulate all of my favorite things in one fancy glass.

We spent the night chatting, joking, munching and laughing! I was so happy that she was able to squeeze in a quick visit before her family obligations.

This is a riff on her mom’s Facebook photos where she is always making a cute face & holding a fancy cocktail 🙂 Sorry Kay!


Saturday I woke up feeling a little out of it, but it was so gorgeous that I couldn’t resist heading out for a quick three mile run. Afterward I got ready & headed downtown to meet up with some fabulous blogger ladies! Emily, Lauren, Becky, Lizzy & Corey
