Have you met my BFF Alison yet? She is so great, such an awesome person to be friends with, totally makes a rainy day at an outdoor festival fun! Alison is also the reason I started running (I don’t consider it a hobby, but it is an excercise I don’t despise), shes the reason I ever watched Sex in the City, a huge foodie inspiration to me, the best person to watch Love Actually (favorite movie) with… Love her, we’ve been friends for 9 years, only bummer is, she lives 3 hours away.
Anyway, over the weekend Alison was here in Grand Haven (she hails from the Chicago suburbs) and we took in some great casual weekend activities. You know girls night out in Grand Rapids, a craft fair, window shopping in Grand Haven, lakeside wine drinking, and a little wedding planing. Did I tell you that Alison is getting married next summer to a great guy (hey Greg). So happy for them both. Anyway, we spent hours talking about all of her wedding plans and she has even asked me to be a bridesmaid in the wedding. I can’t wait!
This is my straw hat inspiration… just gotta get the swimsuit (yuck swimsuit shopping) here is the link to where I found my inspiration.
Back on about the weekend. We both bought our new sea grass summer hats at the Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival Art Fair. Wow, I have never seen so many people in Grand Haven, EVER. I can’t believe GH puts on a party that big every year and the art fair was class act! Lots of local and non local vendors, yummy street food (shout out to my chili cheese dog) and even though it poured down rain nearly the entire time I had a great day.
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Bad news, is today is Monday and it is back to the grind. Good news, Friday is just a few days away. We can make it my fellow working peeps!!
