weekend wrapup: blate and aquapalooza

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had as good of a weekend as I did!
I started the weekend off right with my first blate.  I met Kate from Another Clean Slate.  We met at a Mexican restaurant where we stuffed our faces with chips, guac, and quesadillas while downing the a gigantic pitcher of spicy/sweet margaritas.  Delicious!  Since we were having so much fun, we moved the party to another restaurant, where I had joined a Mug Club earlier in the week.  I convinced Kate to join the club (you have to drink 126 of their selected beers within 6 months) because it’s always nice to have a pretty drinking buddy…not to mention that it doubles your chances of strangers buying you drinks. Huh, who said that?!
It was hot as balls in the bar and since there’s no way to look cute while sweating, we took this silly pic instead.  We had made friends with some software engineers so that we could get a spot at the bar and then one of them photobombed this otherwise adorable pic.  We called it an early night, since we both had early plans the next morning but I can’t wait to see her again soon!
My aforementioned early Saturday plans were all day boating event called Aquapalooza.  As you’re probably aware, anything with the suffix “-palooza” is guaranteed to be a fabulous shit show and this did not disappoint.  I went with two of my Boston besties on one of their friend’s boats.  Sidenote: Friends with boats are good people to know.
It was a beautiful day and thankfully not as hot out on the water as it was on land.  We linked up to a bunch of other boats for an epic party.  At one point there was a line of 14 boats linked up, half of which had big attached rafts for those who wanted to get wet but not rub feet with the corpses undoubtedly floating in the Boston Harbor.  Kidding, sort of, but I wasn’t jumping in just in case.
Dozens of these were flying as we blasted everything from 90s R&B to country.
We stayed out all day and into the night and managed to take only a few pictures.  The rest of the time I spent laughing and hiding our fancy beers from mooching strangers in lingerie bikinis.  Seriously, who invented the lingerie bikini and why?  ::shudders::
We returned back to the city as the sun was setting.  A beautiful ending to an awesome day.  The rest of the weekend I was pretty much a waste of space relaxing.

How was your weekend?
