Molly arrived first on Saturday afternoon - her flight actually landed a half hour early. Has that ever happened before? Like, ever? I doubt it. Anyway, she took the bus to Port Authority and I met her there, then we returned to my apartment to chat (mostly about her wedding next year, yay!) while we waited for Heather. Heather arrived shortly after 6:00 p.m., and we all did a little more chatting. Molly even asked Heather and me to be bridesmaids in her wedding! Hooray! I'm so excited for her wedding already, I can hardly stand it.
After a while we went to meet Eric and a few other friends at McCoy's Irish Pub to watch the first Gator game of the season. So glad to have college football back! The good news is the first game was against Charleston Southern, so the Gators were able to easily pull off the win even without my undivided attention. We enjoyed some beers, food from nearby establishments, and conversation. Fun times.
We have sort of a hodge-podge of wine glasses, but it was very fitting for Molly to use the engagement ring glass!While we were looking at our magazines, Heather's boyfriend Rick arrived in town from Connecticut. We all went out to dinner together at El Centro, then came back to our apartment for some Rock Band fun!

The next day we got up, packed a picnic lunch, and headed over to Fifth Avenue where we met Heather (after Rick dropped her off) for our second day o' fun. We did our standard Central Park tour, but stopped for a picnic lunch on the benches by the Naumburg Bandshell. It was such a gorgeous day!
Thanks so much for coming, ladies! I had a great time. Can't wait to do it again next year - next time, the visit will most likely be in Molly's honor! Hooray!
And now, this weekend I will be hosting the older - er, wiser - version of Heather and Molly: their mothers! My mom and Aunt Debbie are arriving tomorrow afternoon and staying until early Monday morning. I'm looking forward to that as well!
