|I EMBRACE YOU BIRKIE!|
* Hanging out with Danielle, my ex-boyfriend's ex-girlfriend who was up for the weekend with *her* friends. After emailing back and forth for months, finally meeting and getting to hang out with her in person wass awesome.
* The Moccasin on Friday night. Usually The Moc is kind of a scary skank fest, but on big weekends like this, it can be really fun. I got to crank that jukebox full of Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins tunage, Paulson took awesome pictures, we met a suuuuuuuuuper cute bearded guy who was really freaking cool (too bad nobody who talked to him outside remembers any of the important specifics needed to track him down again), and we kept it chill and fairly sober so that we could get a hold of it the next day. Success!
|All of us! Also, my phone camera sucks in dim light.|
*Getting to watch the race from our kitchen windows was ridiculous. We switched it up by going outside for a while to watch from Angler's patio and mingle a bi and then coming back up to the Penthouse to warm up, etc., but being able to wake up and watch the race from the comfort of my own home with a homemade bloody mary in hand? SO AWESOME.
* Molly and The Danger band played in the (place-formerly-known-as) Pavilion on Saturday afternoon, and it was SO FUN. A huge crew of my favorite Northwoods people showed up, and we danced like fools all afternoon.
|Katy, on the snow-paved Main Street on Friday night.|
|Ang, defiling the virgin snow with her slick dance moves|
And it's stories like that that makes me love her.
|Me, getting in some lunges because physical fitness is important|
* Speaking of...Gabriel and Sonia and I are all Twitter pals, and since we had a sober bus and my place is stupid big, we told the band they should stay with us so they didn't have to drive 50 minutes to where they were originally going to stay. And they did (except one), and it was awesome. We already knew that Gabriel was super nice, but the other guys were way, way cool, too, which we probably wouldn't have learned if it hadn't been for that.
All in all, it really was the biggest, best Birkie weekend ever. Thanks to everyone who made it so! Already looking forward to next year...;)
