Girls Weekend

One of my dear friends from college came to visit me this past weekend and as expected it was just like we were back together again in Norman living in the Alpha Chi house.  Well, we couldn't have done some of these things in the sorority house but either way, it was just great to be re-united  :)

Ryan had class all day Friday and Saturday so we were able to have almost a complete girls weekend full of shopping, laughter, eating, exercising and of course more eating.  I'll leave you with a few highlights and pictures from our fabulous weekend...
  • We spent Thursday evening catching up at a local wine bar after I picked up Anna from the airport.  This was the first place of the weekend that someone asked us if we were sisters...
  • Friday morning we hit up Lola's for a delicious breakfast and then took a vigorous six mile walk in attempts to burn off all the calories we just ate. 
  • We then decided since it was 70 degrees outside that we should lay out by another sorority sister's apartment pool.  However, we drank all our fun fruity drinks before we even made it outside. 
  • This led us to Costco in search of more Fresca and Crystal Light to make another batch.  Apparently you can't buy Fresca nor one pack of Crystal Light at Costco.  They would only sell us a box of about 90...
  • Once our next batch of fun fruity drinks was finally made it was too chilly to lay out by the pool.  We still managed to finish the batch. 
  • That evening Ryan treated Anna and I to a delicious Italian dinner.

  • I will say that we look pretty red at dinner but I'm pretty sure it's not because of the sun...
  • The next morning we attempted a kickbox class at 8:30 am.  I haven't giggled that hard in a work out class in a long time.  
  • I'm also pretty sure the instructor had a crush on Anna as he kept yelling, "You can do it Anna!" Keep going!  Almost there!"  Again, I'm still giggling.  This was the second time someone asked us if we were sisters...
  • We decided to hit up another Italian spot for lunch since we deserved it after the 90 min extreme workout class we had earlier that morning. 
  • We then ventured out to the Galleria to do some shopping since it was pouring rain all afternoon.  We made several fun purchases and then decided we needed a break. 
  • We decided Chili's would hit the spot and sat down for a margarita and chips and salsa.  This was the third time someone asked if we were sisters...
  • Later that evening my sweet parents took Anna , Ryan and I out to dinner at a new local restaurant.  We had a great relaxing evening.

  • The next morning we decided against any form of exercising and instead met a good friend for brunch.
  • We managed to hang out there for about two hours.  That might have been because of the bottomless mimosas or the good company.  I think it's a little bit of both :)
  • After brunch we hit up another favorite shopping spot in Houston and managed to make a few more purchases.   
  • And.... it's a good thing I got paid today :)
Overall, we had a great weekend and made a ton of memories.  Thanks for coming Annie!  Looking forward to our next get together!
