as I mentioned in my previous post, Kerry came to visit me! She is gone now and I am all kinds of sad. But our weekend was great!
She got in around ten am on Saturday and she gave me the sweetest gift. I am actually drinking ice water from it now! Along with only THEE best bourbon and some homemade cookies that were divine. Absolutely divine. Then I promptly sent her to bed. Where the girl slept all of two hours after driving all night. That's what second winds are for!
That afternoon we headed for lunch at Twisted Fork and I showed her the goodness that is Charming Charlie and then we headed for downtown Raleigh to explore. It started to pour but we could not be deterred. We stopped in a few favorite stops and then had drinks at Raleigh Times Bar before heading to the Art Museum to see Saving Mr. Banks on the outdoor screen.
Then Tony took us for a midnight swing to get a Cookout Shake and then it was time to crash. I have no idea how Kerry stayed awake that long!
Sunday she helped me make this space of mine a dot com instead of blogspot. com. Thanks goodness because I am inept at anything of that nature!
We then headed for Bull City and grabbed lunch at a favorite spot, Parker & Otis and then walked around a bit before hitting up Rose's for the best macarons I have ever had. Ever. So good.
And then it was off to explore Tobacco Warehouse district and a Bulls game. We had so much fun but since both of our phones died we had to commandeer Wiki's phone to take pictures. He was a good sport and kept handing Kerry and I his phone. He is used to it by now;) (Kerry, you will be happy to hear I just purchased a charger pack;)
We hit up a sport bar afterward that over looks the park and you can eat and have drinks while overlooking left field. But this place was rockin and standing room only for a while with everyone watching the World Cup. I would have had the best video ever if the last ten seconds hadn't happened. Rude USA, rude;)
Then we headed back to my house and just lounged around. and by lounged I mean we stalked twitter, facebook and instagram. Obviously.
Monday beckoned and I had to nanny and I left Kerry to explore and she did explore by way of doing serious damage at Ross and World Market. As anyone is prone to do once setting foot in either store.
She went for a jog and then got in some pool time before we headed for one last dinner and drinks.
I had such an amazing time. Kerry is truly one of a kind, being around her makes me strive to be a better person because she is, to borrow a quote, "just good people" Being her friend is an honor. And then on top of that...the laughs. Oh the laughs. She makes me giggle. She also makes me jealous with her shiny locks. I am trying to contain my bitterness.
And also, big thanks to my mister for driving us all over, taking us to really cool spots and being fantastic company. You rock too.
