24 Hours

The other day I had 24 hours with my best friend/college roommate, Rachel

We brunched, we window-shopped, we walked, we pedicured… it was fabulous

And since she was in town from Florida we made a couple of very important stops…. Pinkberry

…and forty carats

Best friends don’t let best friends go without fro yo.

And then after a day of running around the city and catching up on months of conversation (I hadn’t seen her since my wedding!) we changed our out-on-the-town evening plans and crashed the husband’s dinner

Littletown 2

We went to this restaurant near my apartment

Littletown 4

Beer sampler anyone?

Littletown 5

Of course the rest of the night was spent catching up some more on life like only best friends do

We were so happy to be reunited, I almost didn’t let her leave!

What would you do if you had a best friend visit for 24 hours?

    I have seriously got to stop checking my reader – people are making me want all kinds of bad things. That frozen yogurt looks incredible and I’m sure it’s better for you than ice cream but it’s still gotta be bad somehow right?

      I like to think of the fro yo with fruit as a balanced meal;-) We basically did brunch->fro yo->fro yo->dinner… clearly a well-balanced day!

    My best friend was here for a few days last year and we had a blast! Eating, shopping, gossiping, eating some more. It was perfect. Glad to hear you had a great time!
    PS – That fortycarat froyo looks awesome!

      It is SO good! I had coffee and plain which I love. They also give you humungous portions (I actually asked for a smaller one).

    aw, so fun! i’m lucky my best friend lives in the same city as me.

    Awww looks like the perfect 24 hours!! I LOVE how much fro yo was involved :)

    Just go to a coffee shop and talk! I haven’t seen my bestie in quite a while!!!

    Btw–both of you have awesome hair in that last picture!!

      Thank you! It was right before my wedding:-)

    24 hours isn’t enough time! I wouldn’t have wanted my bestie to leave either-so bittersweet to have a short visit. Sounds like you had a great time and you both look gorgeous! If I only had 24 hours, I don’t think I’d do anything that would keep us from talking to each other (like a movie or even a theme park). Your day sounds perfect b/c you had time to catch up while you had fun together!

      Thank you! The first picture is from my rehearsal dinner and the 2nd from my wedding day:-)

    You certainly made the most out of 24 hours!

    Isnt it crazy how much being with your best firend is amazing? When we lived in the same city I took everything for granted, Now I see her about once a month (used to be once a year when she lived in a different country)

    • KeepItSweet May 26, 2011 at 9:34 am #

      Oh wow, once a month is awesome! We usually get a couple of times a year.

    I’m jealous!!

    • KeepItSweet May 26, 2011 at 9:34 am #

      We missed you!

  10. Rachel @ The Avid Appetite May 25, 2011 at 10:46 am #

    Sounds so wonderful! One of my very best friends lives in LA and time is so so precious when she has a chance to visit – sometimes I only get to see her for 2 hours, but it’s like time has never passed!

    reunion trips like this, even when they are WAY too short, are always worth it :)

  12. valerie May 25, 2011 at 12:06 pm #

    I love this post. Pinkberry is the best and I love me some beer sampler. Ha

    So I am EXTREMELY lucky and my best friend (or Biff as we call eachother) lives like 2 minutes away from me and we get to hang out pretty regularly. What I do not have, however, is a frozen yogurt place anywhere around me!! I am so jealous everytime I see another beautiful froyo pick. Sigh…

    • KeepItSweet May 26, 2011 at 9:35 am #

      I’m so jealous! Most of my best friends live in different cities and I am constantly missing them. Come to NYC for a fro yo tour:-)

    It sounds like you had a wonderful time together. There is nothing better than time with old friends. My best girlfriend of 31 years (ack!) and I love to cook, eat, sing and chat together.

  15. Simply Life May 25, 2011 at 8:04 pm #

    sounds like a perfect day!

  16. RWB May 25, 2011 at 8:09 pm #

    Yay! So honored to have made the blog! Lauren + Rachel + fro yo × 2 = happiness. Best 24 hours ever! Can’t wait to be reunited…missing you already!

    • KeepItSweet May 26, 2011 at 9:36 am #

      4 months until ATL!!!

  17. Caroline @ chocolate and carrots May 25, 2011 at 10:23 pm #

    Aww, how fun! :-) It looks like you guys had a great day!

  18. MelissaNibbles May 26, 2011 at 1:49 pm #

    Sounds like such a fun time! I’d love to spend 24 hours in NYC.

  19. sheila @ Elements May 26, 2011 at 2:45 pm #

    Sounds like you had a great time! That frozen yogurt looks so good, by the way! :)

    What would I do if I was with my best friend for an entire day? Cook, talk, and take lots of pictures of her. :)
