When I jive with a person, it’s inevitable that I’m probably going to get close to him/her. My mom says that I get ”attached” to everyone…I would say that’s a bit of an exaggeration! Honestly though, I wouldn’t have it any other way because by being an open person, I’ve made some awesome friends.
Speaking of awesome, I spent the entire day (literally from 9-9) with my coworker and great friend. Her husband was out of town, and I am currently a one person family, so we decided to make yesterday a girls DAY. I still can’t believe we did all that we did.
First up – outlet shopping!
My purchases included…
A Vera Bradley duffle bag
Two VERY comfortable pairs of shoes
And a blouse from Banana Republic that I forgot to photograph.
We worked up an appetite from walking around for a few hours, so I decided to open up a whole new world for my friend by introducing her to the Whole Foods hot bar. YUM! Unfortunately, I remembered the whole picture thing after we finished eating.
We also made a quick pit stop at Starbucks so I could introduce my friend to the wonderfulness that is the Salted Caramel Mocha. This little drink has become quite the dangerous addiction for me.
Next, we headed to the movies for some eye candy a la Mr. Gosling and Mr. Clooney…
For those of you who haven’t seen this movie yet, I highly recommend it. Not only does it have a powerhouse cast, but the story is well written. It takes you into the gut of a presidential campaign (and kind of makes you sick <— once you see the movie, you’ll get what I mean by this).
Finally, we met up some coworkers for dinner at Solea – a fun tapas restaurant.
The food was perfection, but the lighting was horrible for pictures…
Creamy Pumpkin Soup
Brazilian Cheese Bread – I die! Every bite was pure heaven – light, doughy, cheesy.
French Fries sprinkled with cumin.
Patatas Bravas – a classic tapas dish.
After dropping my friend off at her place, I headed back to my hotel and pretty much crashed. I. Was. Exhausted!
Yesterday just proved how bittersweet this move is going to be for me. I’ve made so many great friends up here in Boston.
However, knowing I won’t have to experience a cruel NE winter keeps me smiling!
What’s your favorite way to spend time with friends?
