The Epic Trip to the Hamptons

We set off on our long journey to the Hamptons on Thursday night after work. We met at our friend AF's apartment (the one who actually has the house in the Hamptons) at 7 p.m. and loaded up our cars w/ food, music and people. We took 3 cars up to New York, each completely full. 

Due to unforeseen traffic and a trip to McDonalds (long story, I was starving) we didn't end up getting to AF's house until a little after 3 a.m. We all managed to stay up the entire car ride though, keeping Steak company so he wouldn't doze off at the wheel.

Once we arrived at the house we mapped out our sleeping arrangements, some of us in bedrooms, others of us on air mattresses in the common areas, and quickly went to bed.
Friday morning we woke up early to a light drizzling rain. We didn't care and were determined to go to the beach regardless of the weather. We actually spent a good hour or two enjoying the waves and the sand while the rain came down on us and then retreated back to AF's house for some amazing pool time in the gloomy weather.

Me and my friend AL. We stayed on shore.

After our trip to the beach and our fun in AF's pool we all got cleaned up for dinner. We had done a little day drinking so we were in quite the goofy moods in the afternoon.

On Saturday we woke up well rested, finally, and the sun was shining. We immediately left for the beach for several hours of fun in the sun and waves.
Many more of us ventured to the water on Saturday, because it was so much warmer.
Many cute beach pics with the girlfriends.

Steak and I had such a wonderful time this weekend with all of our friends. We are eternally grateful to AF and her family for allowing us to spend the weekend in their beautiful home in the Hamptons! Our weekend was also made great because we were reunited with three of our friends we had not seen in a long time. However, it was so sad to leave, not only because we had such a great time, but also because that was the last time I will see some of my very close girlfriends this summer because they are headed to law school.

What a great way to spend a weekend and bid farewell to such great friends! I will miss you all, but we will stay in touch and see each other very soon, I hope!
