First Fall Foliage Festivity!

This past weekend was smack filled with fun things going on. Possibly more interesting for me than you but I am overly willing to share with you just in case! Friday night we celebrated one of my college besties 26th 22nd birthday. We decided we will not allow ourselves to be any older. We got all dolled up at her apartment in Queens, began with birthday dranks and headed out to the big city. B Bar was where we ended up, it's on the lower east side and I have to say I can't wait to go back. It was such a chill bar to hang out in, grab a table and still be able to enjoy each other's company. Totally going to contradict the 22 comment BUT I am so over being in bars, shoulder to shoulder with drunk idiots, spilling things and yelling for a spot at the bar. Rant over ... and I'm still not old back to being 22!


Saturday poured. And poured and poured and poured. Which means we did nothing worth telling. Lame. Errands, chores and laziness. Lame. Sunday started with my fall ritual, watching the boy play flag football. I have to say this was the first year I actually looking forward to watching him play, and hanging with the girls 'watching', but then It was 50 degrees at 9am and all those looking forwards turned into why?!!!! It was the first really cold freezing morning and I was not prepared. With my sweatshirt, green tea and all it was still blistering and I was not a happy camper. Thank goodness for good girl friends to watch with because we chatted the whole game away and before we knew it, it was over. The weather actually warmed up...a degree, or two, and the boy and we decided to be spontaneous and head up to Piermont, NY. FIRST FALL FOLIAGE FESTIVITY!! Woohooo!! This adorable little town is right over the state line, easy to get to and the perfect day trip from where we live. One one side you have the beautiful Hudson River and inland is the beautiful hills of Rockland County with the first signs of fall foliage.
It was the cutest little town. We both had never been before but heard it was a great day trip - and it was. There was still a chill in the air and being right on the water didn't help with that extra sea breeze, so we warmed up at a tiny coffee shop. This place was so tiny but as expected it was so cute and fit right in with the rest of the town. The front room had this cute sitting area with a library wall of books and the back was another room where you were able to order your coffee anyway you liked. It was such a relaxing place to rest up for another crazy week!
How was your weekend? Any fall foliage excitement?

  1. I have enjoyed getting older for as long as I can remember. I'm about to be 27 and I'm really excited! I want to have a huge bash when I turn 30, too. I think with age comes more life, more experience and hopefully wisdom. I have enjoyed being 26 and now the year of being 27 is upon me!
