That Time I Was the Cool Kid at the Pool

Most Saturdays I can be found lounging by the pool with my trusty US magazine surveying all the pool get-togethers and people-watching. 

But this Saturday was all different....I was the cool person with the pool get-together. And ya'll....it was so cool! 

Since I love summer and the sun and my birthday gloriously fell on a Saturday this year (and I have friends this year in this city.....very key).....I had a pool party.

And my friends made the day so special. They are awesome. 

So since you all couldn't be there, here are some pics from the day! 

me and Katie - love her!

All the girls! You might recognize that spicy little number in red on the far right from Choose to be Happy

Orange you glad we took this pic?! 

I used to be this girl's RA in college....now we're grown-up working friends!

My sweet friends and family made it such a great day.....and that includes blog friends. I was so overwhelmed by all the packages, cards, tweets, videos and Facebook messages. Thank You!!

XO, A
