And so another weekend comes to an end. I hope you had a fun and relaxing one and all the Mom’s out there enjoyed their Mother’s Day on Sunday. I had a fantastic weekend in Columbus celebrating my friend Kelly who just graduated as a nurse practitioner from Ohio State. All weekend I was together with my college girlfriends whom I only get to see a few times a year. Here is a recap of all the fun, food, and drinks we had while I visited Columbus.
Upon our arrival to Columbus we had a fabulous lunch at The Knotty Pine. I seriously had the most delicious salmon salad alongside a class of sauvignon blanc. The salmon was cooked perfectlyyyyy and I had never had tomato chutney before, but it made everything so delicious. I love giant salads when you don’t even need dressing to enjoy the flavors.
After lunching we walked back to Kelly’s house to catch up and later get ready for the graduation party her parents were throwing her at their new house. Wine, appetizers, pizza, celebrating, it was a fantastic evening.
Wine bottles Kelly’s mom had made for her, how cute!
My college girlfriends and I. We all became very close our junior year of college when we met at a party and realized we lived across the street from each other, funny how that works ; )
One with the boys minus two hubbies.
Late night Catch Phrase. Anyone else constantly play this game in college when you were tired of card games? So fun! Plus we added a nice twist. Kelly came up with the idea where we had to speak in a british accent when giving the clues. I was not very good at the game to begin with, adding this into the mix just made me constantly laugh every time it was my turn. But it was hilarious listening to everyone, I seriously haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.
O-H-I-O School of Nursing Graduation on Saturday morning.
Congrats and so proud of you Kelly. I can’t believe how fast three years has gone, even though I’m sure for you it dragged at times. But you have so much to look forward to as you now begin your career as a nurse practitioner, so much love for you!
Brunching to celebrate at Pint House!
Breakfast wrap with eggs, cheese, potatoes, peppers, and onions. I have never thought to make a breakfast wrap like this with potatoes in it and let me tell you it was delicious. So was the salad and strawberry basil lemonade cocktail =)
After brunch we stopped at Giant Eagle Market District to pick up some grill items and drinks for later that night. We don’t have Market District’s in Maryland so I made everyone get a drink and shop. I’m weird and already love going to the grocery store, add beer and wine and it’s even better!
Back at Kelly’s house we prepared to watch the derby with some snacks and fabulous mojitos and mint jubilee’s made by Kelly’s boyfriend Ben.
Then it was backyard grilling, corn hole, and sitting by the fire for the rest of the night. It was so great to catch up with my girlfriends and have so much to celebrate. But weekends like this unfortunately always go by way to fast.
Sunday I flew home early afternoon and later cooked dinner with the hubby. We made chicken kabobs and veggies and had some leftover for lunches for the week. Then we relaxed and got into some of the shows on the DVR like Southern Charm before I fell asleep super early from all the fun all weekend.
How was your weekend?
When was the last time you got together with a group of close girlfriends?
