Dontcha Wish Your Girlfriends were Hot (and Smart and Funny) Like Mine?

This weekend was simply fabulous.  

For the last few months, a bunch of my girlfriends and I have been planning to get together to see "The Hunger Games."  

We even took our nerdiness to DEFCON 5 and wore matching t-shirts.  
Afterwards, we went to The Liberty Tavern for cheese, cocktails, dinner, and more conversation. 

A note about The Liberty Tavern: The menu is full of fresh, creative fare and I had a hard time deciding what to get!  We started with a sampler of six cheeses (actually, two 3-cheese samplers)--some house made, all amazing.  I had the steamed mussel and the gnocchi--both of which were to die for!  My girl M's pizza (The Vermont: white cheddar, granny smith apples, caramelized onions, prosciutto, and sage) looked amazing and I'm going to try my take on it later this week.  I must say, I'm going to find some excuse to go back! 

During dinner, we realized that every woman at the table not only holds a college degree, but holds an advanced degree as well.  Not that we needed to whip our our credentials to confirm that my friends are among the most intelligent, beautiful, funny, and simply awesome women on the planet--but it was a pretty cool realization.

After dinner, we parted ways and then regrouped (somewhat) on Sunday morning for breakfast, more chatting, and a little bit of yoga.  

Since we were all together and hanging out, I couldn't resist throwing in some partner poses

I never realized how shiny my butt looks when I'm wearing yoga pants.
Afterwards, we ate some delicious carrot cake pancakes and discussed the movie and life in general.  

It was awesome getting to regroup with my fabulous friends (although I was sad that a few of my girls had to cancel at the last minute.  Boo!) We don't see each other very often, but when we do we have a great time.  Before we left, we were already talking about the next time we'd be able to get together--which certainly won't be soon enough!
