Weekend review: Gal pals

This past weekend, my friend Kat came to visit. I’ve known Kat since we were babies and when it comes to old friends, she falls in to that wonderful category without a doubt. Kat just got engaged so our weekend was filled with girly chatter and a definite random smattering of events, including the Derecho storm that hit the east coast on Friday.

The storm and the aftermath were honestly some of the weirdest (and scariest, because I’m a big chicken) things I’ve ever experienced. Transformers were exploding, it was raining sideways, lightening streaked through the sky, and of course…the power went out. So Kat and I got creative with our activities. We did a bit more driving than we intended for the weekend, but we managed to fit in some wedding dress shopping, a much needed sushi date, and of course a night out with the Irish.

From left to right, top to bottom:

  • View from the apartment at 11 pm while the Derecho storm was going nuts
  • Kat trying on her very FIRST dress at a shop in Old Town
  • Nomtastic sushi at my fave sushi bar
  • Kittay on the porch that wanted to say HAI and BAI to Kat as she was leaving. He was too kyoot not to share!

Kat is also an amazing photographer and has been honing her skills for quite sometime. She is good at what she does – so here’s a gratuitous picture of myself, taken by Kat. I feel pretty and I think that’s the best feeling you could ever have from seeing a photo of yourself.

Sounds like a great weekend! Congrats to your friend, and glad you weathered the storm. We’re all safe and with power over here.

You look pretty, too. I mean, you are pretty, but you look very pretty in the photo.

Sideways rain, huh? That’s always scary!
