seeing my franns.

Washington DC
Denver, CO
Toledo, OH
San Diego, CA
Los Angeles, CA
Columbus, OH
Portland, OR

...and i live in New Jersey.

how on EARTH will i ever get to see my friends in all these places!?!?!

it's happening.

and it's happening soon.

thanks to a friendly reminder a few days ago from Megan (go visit her blog!), i've got just a bit over a month until i fly to Denver to see Miss DC, Miss Denver, Miss Toledo, and Mrs. Columbus :D

pulling out the old school pics!! because we're old school frannns...
see that blonde the second from the left?  we wish she was joining too :(

thanks to a friendly reminder on my credit card bill, i'm also fully booked for my trip to mexico to see Miss San Diego, Miss Portland, and soon-to-be-a-Mrs. Los Angeles :D

where our friendship all started... thailand!!


most of the time i'm wishing all these girls lived in NYC by MEEE... but, i guess it's ok that i get to go to cool places to see them too. 

what i've learned from all this?
1. first trip: having friends in fun places is nice
(read: kill 2 birds with 1 stone.. cheap vacation, see friends, everyone's happy!)


READERS: ANY TIPS FOR FUN THINGS TO DO IN DENVER IN JULY??
i was there earlier this year for work, but it was work, and there was no fun-with-just-the-girls stuff happening (i was there with 2 middle-aged man co-workers)

hopefully we'll have some fun like the good old times:




2. second trip: when everyone lives far away, sometimes the best bet is to just go to mexico!!
thanks to cheapcaribbean.com (and the awesome planning from Miss Portland), i'm going to mexico for 5 days, and the flight, hotel, food, drinks, EVERYTHING was well under $1000.  celebrating a milestone birthday and miss LA becoming MRS. LA... it's gonna be so fun.

READERS: ANY TIPS FOR VACATIONING IN MEXICO??
i've never been vacationing ANYWHERE in the Caribbean, so i'm pretty excited to see what it's all about :D

i KNOW this trip is going to bring back awesome memories of our trip to SE Asia:






ok... enough about the trips at the end of summer... i must enjoy the summer NOW in this beautiful city i live in!!

...off to kickboxing followed by a quick peruse through the Not Yo Mama's Craft Fair happening SUPER close to our house in the Powerhouse Arts District!!

i love living in a place where all the FUN stuff is either a quick walk or train ride away :D

cheers!

I was in Colorado when I was little but we went horseback riding, hiking and white water rafting...all AMAZING experiences. You guys will have a great time. Can't wait to hear/read all about it :)
