Aaaaand the bachelorette parties continue!
Last night, I met up with Sarah before heading out for a fun girls night out on the town – all to celebrate with my cousin Denise for her bachelorette party.
We all started out the evening at Bailey’s Café, one of my favorite spots up in Saratoga. Since it’s now track season, I figured that Bailey’s would be a mad house, but things actually weren’t too busy…at first.
Luckily, we had reservations, so we grabbed our tables outside, got ourselves a few drinks, and started to check out the menu. Sarah and I had decided at the beginning of the night that we were both in a champagne mood. The last time we were at Bailey’s it was our drink of choice, so we continued with the theme.
For my dinner, I decided to get The Lincoln, which was turkey, provolone, lettuce, tomato, and raspberry mayo(!) on wheatberry bread. I was starving and it tasted fabulous. So, so good.
Our group ended up staying at Bailey’s for a few hours before heading up the street to The Ice House. Sarah and I also continued with the champagne…
Gosh, I love those girls SO much!
There was a pretty great band playing last night (Gravity, I think?) and despite it being about a thousand degrees, the dance floor was hoppin’!
And things were gettin’ a little crazy.
^^ FYI, that dude up there was quite a character.
Not long after arriving at The Ice House, look who I ended up running in to!
Earlier in the day, the boys were out celebrating with Denise’s fiance, Mike, for his bachelor party and then went out in Saratoga as well. The plan was actually to have both parties meet up towards the tail end of the evening, but we actually ran in to each other sooner than expected.
Hey, that’s fine by me.
We all danced up a storm, sweaty messes and all, and wound up staying out until shortly before 2am. Seriously…I don’t know how much longer I can keep up with this late-night stuff! It was a super fun night spent with some super awesome people.
And, thankfully, I’m not super hung over today either.
Good thing, since I actually had a breakfast date with my friend Heather this morning. Usually Heather and I meet up at Starbucks and sit and talk for hours, but we switched things up today and I headed over to her house. This meant, not only did I get to see cutie Logan, but I also got a home-cooked French Toast breakfast.
Oh my god. You guys. This French Toast? Off the hook. And it totally brought me back to my childhood…
When we were younger, sleepovers happened probably almost every weekend. Whenever I stayed over to her house, her parents used to make the most incredible French Toast for us. It was, and still is, like nothing else I’ve ever had.
Shortly after breakfast, Heather and I were on the road and I was quickly introduced to the world of Aldi’s.
I’d never shopped at an Aldi’s before, but I could totally get used to their prices. So cheap! They’re a little different from most regular grocery stores (they don’t have bags, not much name brand stuff, no deli/bakery) but I loved it. I got all of my stuff for $33.33 (<—how’s that for crazy?!), which included a bunch of produce. I’m a fan!
After our shopping trip, we parted ways and I headed back on home. Now I’ve got a bit of gardening to tend to, along with a few other things around the house.
Happy Sunday, friends!
Question for the Afternoon:
Where do you do most of your grocery shopping? Have you ever tried Aldi’s?
