I heart my college BFFs (+ Jess)!
We had a blast this weekend at our friend Sarah (who we all call Bitting)’s wedding!
Bitting was on my freshman floor in college, and so were most of the gorgeous ladies above 🙂 We shared a house this weekend with some other unpictured friends (and significant others) — so fun! I heart weddings that also serve as big reunions.
Freshman year floor photo (ignore our hand motions… inside joke heh):
Sorority photo (we were in Kappa Alpha Theta):
Not only were all my college bffs there, but our entire DC crew was in attendance as well! Awesome. Here I am with a few of the girls 🙂 Sadly we neglected getting a photo of the big group!
It was so fun being at a wedding where we knew… everyone. 🙂 The wedding took place in Keuka Lake in upstate NY; the weather was AMAZING on Friday when we arrived, so we decided a little swimming was in order! I love lakes.
Romantic photo with Turner 😉
There was even a raft to jump off of!!! Love.
The wedding location was gorgeous, too — here’s the view from the front porch of the mansion where they had the reception!
Amazing views of the lake, right?!
On Saturday before the wedding, a few of us did a 5 mile trail run and then we all hit up some wineries! It was a bit overcast but nice and cool — such a welcome change from the oppressive heat in NC and DC recently!
Check out the shirt my friend Hunter was sporting! Hehe.
Why, it’s a fANNEtastic t-shirt! Love 🙂
This morning, before heading out, all of us in the house made a big breakfast. My friend Kris made an amazing baked french toast (recipe courtesy of The Pioneer Woman):
And I made scrambled eggs with goat cheese, tomato, and spinach. Yum!
The other food highlight of the weekend (but not for breakfast, heh!) was amazing homemade peach ice cream courtesy of my friend Lu!
Yes, it’s in a pan… that’s how we roll 😉
Whew — what a weekend! It went by so quickly and I was very sad to say goodbye to everyone this morning. I miss my girls already. We all live too far away 🙁
Matt and I spent today roaming the Rochester area — including a nice long walk along the beautiful Erie Canal! (thanks for the recommendation via Twitter, Jenna!)
We even got to see a real working lock in action! Very cool.
It’s now after midnight and we’re driving home from the Raleigh airport. To say I’m exhausted is a bit of an understatement… really wishing I didn’t have orientation round 2 at UNC tomorrow starting at 7:30 a.m. Then classes start Tuesday, gah.
Stay tuned for lots of fun dinner recipes this week — we are pretty sick of going out to eat (not to mention broke) after the past few weeks of crazy travel and moving.
