Our friend Ali's boyfriend James is the golf pro, Y.E. Yang's caddy. (Fun fact: Y.E. Yang once beat Tiger Woods in a tournament. Yeah.) James hooked us up with free tickets to the Players' Championship with clubhouse access.
The day was beautiful and hot. We had fun watching the pros, luxuriating in the clubhouse and eating more shrimp than anyone should ever consume in one sitting. By the time we left, I was completely spent.
It was awesome.
Thanks to Ali and James for showing us a great time!
We recently visited some of Zach's family in upstate New York. It was nice spending quality time with the Glasers and enjoying perfect weather.
What you're not seeing? Visits to Zach's paternal grandmother, hours spent visiting out front of Tami and Jaime's new house, enjoying Tami's amazing hummus, Jaime's surprise 30th birthday party, soccer in this beautiful lakeside park and me, rolling down a hill and loving every second of it.
On our last night in Austin for Brielle's bachelorette party, we ended our night at the bars. Obviously. At one point, another bachelorette party showed up. The girls were all wearing black with the bachelorette in white, just like us. There was a dance-off among bachelorette parties. Try to imagine drunk rival gangs in dresses facing off.
I could show you the rest of the pictures from Saturday night, but I'd have kill you.
On Sunday we met again for brunch before leisurely making our way to the airport. The weather was perfect, it was the perfect way to end our trip.
This building was my favorite. It reminds me of origami folding up.
I hope you're all having a great weekend! Zach and I are off to Albany, NY. Xx
Have you ever been to Austin? I hadn't, and although I had heard it's a "cool city," I didn't really know what that meant until I arrived. "Cool," in the context of Austin, means lots of young hipsters, good bars and restaurants, a clean city and a wide variety of physical activities.
If you've been following, you'll know that last weekend I visited Austin for my friend Brielle's bachelorette party. On Friday night, we bar hopped from rooftop bar to rooftop bar to gay bar. Good times were had by all.
Saturday morning we had brunch as a group. Brielle is lucky to have such a cool, real and down to earth group of girlfriends. I loved getting to know the girls and hearing their college stories.
After brunch, Trista and I went to the spa at our hotel, the W hotel, and got massages. Mine was the best massage I've ever had - other than Zach's. Obv. Afterward, we luxuriated in the steam room and then met the girls out for drinks, live music and sight seeing. And by sight seeing I mean walking around aimlessly trying to find a restaurant that our friend swore was "just one more block ahead."
Along the way, we saw this:
Saturday night? You guessed it. Champagne and lingerie shower for Brielle. As you can see, it went well.
One of the girls cut out these faces of the groom-to-be.
We popped champagne
Here's Brielle's Maid of Honor Carrie, who did a fabulous job organizing the bachelorette party.
We recently went to our friends and neighbors, Dave and Melissa's wedding. There was lots of salsa dancing and good company. Cute couple, right?
The flower girls were adorable. Here I am, teaching one of them to dance like a ho.
He's got a gun! Pew Pew!
Aren't weddings fun? Partying with friends and strangers, dancing, chicken dancing (if you're one of those), what more could you want? Aside from Ryan Gosling.
What are you up to this weekend? I'm going to Austin, Texas for the first time this weekend for a friend's bachelorette party. I'm excited to have a girls' weekend and experience a new city. I'll be MIA until I get back. Have a great weekend!
