    It looks like you ladies had a fab time! Food looks AMAZING.

    • Karen says:

      It was fun. I really needed some girl time!

      How was your weekend? πŸ™‚

      • Chelsea says:

        It was the last weekend before I have to go back to work and classes, so bittersweet! Zack and I did dinner and movies on Saturday (Silver Linings Playbook was cute!), today I did some marathon grocery shopping and we watched The Hunger Games on Blu-Ray. I also worked out both days, so that’s good!

        Now I’m going to go relax with some fashion and beauty magazines while my gluten-free muffins are baking, and Quincy comes out for a hop.

        • Karen says:

          I know that feeling all too well! I’m glad you were able to enjoy the last of your time off. It sounds like you had a nice weekend. And yay for getting the grocery shopping done! I just got back from a trip to Trader Joe’s for emergency provisions.

          Mmmm, muffins. What kind did you make?

          Hi to Quincy (and Jiji, too).

          • Chelsea says:

            Apple Cinnamon!

            The furbabies say hi. Jiji was very snuggly during The Hunger Games, he kept me warm!

    It’s wonderful that you all take time out of your busy lives to celebrate your friendship. Way to seize the day!

    • Karen says:

      Sometimes I can’t believe that I used to see these two every day. Now it takes months and tons of back and forth e-mails to get together!

      Hope you had a nice weekend. What did you do?

  3. Agata says:

    It looks like a fun weekend. You look like a teenager Karen πŸ™‚

  4. Heidi says:

    Glad you had such a great time. The food looks amazing!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Heidi,

      There were lots of good veggie options, too. My friend Jen had a veggie scramble that you probably would’ve liked. Next time you’re in Berkley hit up Venus! Highly recommended. πŸ™‚

    Looks like you 3 had a ton of fun! It is a lot of back and forth for me to plan stuff, too – with my current job and my future job I’ve become more of a last minute planner. I haven’t been to a spa before. It’s something I will do sometime soon though.

    • Karen says:

      Sometimes amazing adventures can come from last-minute plans! πŸ™‚

      If/when you go to the spa, I highly recommend getting any type of massage with medium-pressure or a facial. Whenever I have either I feel like a completely new person when I leave.

  6. Suzy says:

    I’ve never seen eggs benedict that looks quite like that

  7. virginie says:

    It makes me want to be there too, lol…Me too, I hadn’t had this kind of fun time for myself in a veryyyy long time! HAppy for you!

  8. Camille Domingo says:

    looks like it was an awesome, relaxing time! i think it’s great that you still keep in touch with friends from high school. it gets more difficult to find time to reconnect with people. the food looks delish!

  9. sillylilacs says:

    Aww girl time is the best! I still keep in contact with my 2 high school best friends (in graduate school now), and the rare moments we get to get together, is great! πŸ™‚
