a perfect springy weekend

Last weekend our good friend Elissa came down from Nashville to visit us for a few days.  I consider Elissa my oldest college friend, because we became friends during the 1st semester of our freshman year, and have stayed friends since then.  Most of the girlfriends I have now stem from friendships built in college, but Elissa’s friendship is one of the few that goes back as far as freshman year.  Here’s a look back…

I can’t believe that was 7 years ago!!!  Anyways. So Elissa came into town and all us girls enjoyed a wonderful weekend together. Friday night we went to our traditional dinner at Nabeel’s, then had a few drinks at Cocina Superior, then headed home and played some Wii dance (always a good time).  Then Saturday morning we go up, ate my yummy hashbrown casserole 😉 and then headed to Edgewood Creamery for ice cream. The weather was BEAUTIFUL outside, so we sat outside and talked for a while catching up on each other’s lives. Then after that we decided to go to the Railroad Park downtown.  It was obviously a popular spot for lots of people (and dogs!) that day. We spread our blankets out, layed in the sun, talked some more, listened to music and even played a little bocce ball.
 

 Even the pups had a great time!  I think Sophie is enjoying her new home/family 🙂  Look at this face. Does that not just say “ahhh…this is the life!”

 Saturday night we went out again to a swanky little bar in Mountain Brook, and the boys came along for a little visiting time.  Then Sunday we went and had brunch at Another Broken Egg.  One word. DELICIOUS!  This place was adorable. It felt like we were sitting inside of a true southern plantation home eating breakfast that grandma just cooked. I’m seriously considering having a bridesmaids brunch here now.  I can’t believe I had never been here before.  Yum.
 
So that pretty much sums up our weekend.  It was quite lovely. Nothing beats girlfriends in the south 🙂

    PS- the pups are precious.
