The much anticipated Erin and Ginger weekend occurred this past weekend and it was awesome (as if it could have been anything else).
Erin arrived around 7pm on Friday night and we enjoyed a dinner of cheese bread, veggie pizza, and brownies with icing on top. But of course the best part of the night were the Cosmopolitans. Now, if you are like me, I have had some super delicious cosmos at restaurants, the best being in London, but when it comes to making them at home, I have always just bought Cosmo mix and added vodka. Not so awesome.
Thanks to Wikipedia however, we discovered how easy it is to make your own super delicious cosmos.
2 parts citrus vodka
1 part Triple Sec
1 part Cranberry Juice
Place vodka, triple sec, and cranberry juice in a shaker with ice. Shake to mix, strain into a martini glass. Decorate with a lime wedge.
|There may or may not have been 8 of these....
We watched the movie You Again with Kristen Bell and Jamie Lee Curtis. Not the best movie, but it was fun and light and girly!
....and of course Say Yes to the Dress and Four Weddings
On Saturday I took Erin to Village at Sandhills to walk around and shop. I ended up with a new shirt from Loft and Erin got some cute clothes at Old Navy, including a super cute hat, and decorative pins at NY&Company. We came back and watched Ringer, we both love SMG, and then got ready to go out with part of the Lucky 7.
After much talk from the second years, we decided to go to a local place in Five Points called Pawley's Front Porch. It is known for its amazing burgers, so known in fact that is was on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives! Lucky for us they also had a veggie burger, so we could all enjoy something! Erin was able to meet John, Cassie, and Kim which I was really excited about because they are my new family :)
One thing you need to know about Erin is that she LOVES Emma Watson ( I mean, who couldn't). They even have the same haircut! As a part of our internet searches last night we wanted to know when the new Lancome Midnight Rose perfume comes out, for which Emma is the spokes woman. Here is the commercial if you have not seen it:
As you can see Emma wears this amazing hat in the commercial, and my beautiful best friend bought one that looks very similar!
|Don't Emma and Erin look EXACTLY the same?
Watch out Emma, someone might be stealing your future movie roles!
Finally this morning, we were just lazy, made pancakes, and watched Jumanji (throw back!) still being able to recite a large majority of the movie. But all good things must come to an end, and Erin left around 3pm :(
I could not have imagined a better weekend. I miss having my best friend so close and I am looking forward to the next time she comes to visit. On the agenda will be the Riverbanks Zoo!
Luckily, I do not have a lot of school work this coming week, so I will be packing my apartment for my move on Saturday (finally!) and a visit from Jared and Randi!
They have a community of people, friends, you know, who travel together, engage in silliness, dress in costume. I think it's nice.
