Did you guys have a nice holiday weekend? I sure hope so! Can I start by saying I think every weekend should be a 3-day weekend?! Am I right or am I right? Personally I think it's the perfect break off for the work week!
I had a lot of fun this weekend! It was the perfect combination of having some fun, getting some things taken care of and adventure :)
I kicked off the weekend by heading to a Yankees game with my friend Lynette and Chris. Chris had an extra ticket so he was nice enough to let me bring a friend and get this is was her first Yankees game! Which wouldn't be that unheard of but she grew up on Long Island so it was really awesome she got to come along. And of course... I tried to give her the full baseball game experience complete with garlic cheesies and some other fabulous stadium food.
Saturday was a little bit more of a chill day. Cue apartment errands, lots of cleaning and other unphotographable moments... they had to get done though! All in preparation for Saturday night which was another sports moment... The first Oregon Ducks football game! To celebrate, Chris and I had a nice little BBQ on the balcony and relaxed while watching the late-night (PST times are killer on the east coast) game.
On Sunday we added some adventure to the weekend by heading out to Long Island and to the beach! One of Chris' friends got a new boat so we got to take it for a spin and head over to Fire Island to Davis Park. Once we made it towards the beach I had my first wade to the beach experience of hopping out of the boat and walking up to the shore. I've never done that before so I can check that off my bucket list!
I hadn't been to the Davis part of Fire Island before either so another something that was new!
It was a really nice and relaxing day at the beach. We met up with some of Chris' family and friends at the beach too so we had a lot of fun! I may have gotten a little lobster status, but it's nothing a little aloe can't clear up!
We waded back to the boat with some other friends on the way back. There was a couple of feisty crabs along the way so note to self.. be careful where you walk when you do that!
For the rest of the evening we enjoyed some downtime with Chris' parents and headed out for another Long Island treat, rum buckets! In true Anna fashion I was the slowest to finish my drink, but they sure were tasty! The bar was right along the water which was pretty cool too.
Before we headed back into the city on Monday we stopped by the most adorable little ice cream parlor in Bellport called Carla Marla's.
They had some seriously awesome looking flavors and their cuteness factor was definitely on point ;-) I went for a malt with their cannoli ice cream! Definitely recommend. They even had a cute little place to park your pooch and doggie ice cream!
And that's a wrap! Can I stay in vacation mode forever?
