this past weekend, us girls had a mini-delta gamma reunion in memphis with our dear friend cami serving as hostess. it was just TOO much fun, all of us being under one roof, staying up way too late, catching up and telling those stories that make you pee your pants (no i didn’t thank you very much), eating at some fantastic local restaurants, and just relaxing with my gals. these are the weekends i live for.
when we arrived friday night, we headed to hog and hominy for some pizza…this place was awesome. very relaxed and laidback, but incredible and crazy combination style food. afterwards, we headed back to cami’s so everyone could put on their pajamas, indulge in some wine and sparkling cider for moi, and celebrated hurt’s belated birthday with a cookie cake. we stayed up until almost 3am, talking about the boys, venting about all that other stuff that consumes our lives, stalking crazy people on facebook, and just enjoying each other’s company. it was a WONDERFUL night!
the next morning, we went to the infamous rendezvous for lunch. in all my travels to memphis, i had never gone there so i was super excited we were finally going! i got the bbq ribs (what they are famous for) and it sure didn’t disappoint! i even brought home a bottle of their spice rub for jeff, too. that afternoon, we all hit up the pottery barn, west elm, and williams sonoma outlets like some old ladies…we all got a sack so it was obviously a worthwhile trip, too ;). saturday night, cami had made reservations for us at the coolest bar/restaurant called mollie fontaine’s. we ordered practically 1 of everything on the menu and spent hours lounging, drinking, and eating. we then went to a fun bar called alchemy which is known for their drink specialties and mixologists. the bartender was sweet enough to whip me up a mocktail, so she was awesome in my book! us girls went home way past my bedtime and i called it a night…this mama was tired!
sunday morning, we got the chance to see preston (cami’s adorable son) before heading back home to the loved ones. we decided to make this an annual tradition on MLK weekend and i cannot wait to see what we come up with next year!
p.s. girls, i’ll bring the crafting supplies for picture frames and coasters 😉 hehe
