A Fannetastic Wedding Weekend: Part 1

IMG 2252 A Fannetastic Wedding Weekend: Part 1

Greetings from Virginia! I’m actually spending the next three weekends in the D.C. area (wedding, wedding, Army Ten-Miler, MARATHON), so I might get sick of typing that by the end of the month.

I flew down here to make it to a pre-wedding reception Anne was having because flying was the only logistical way I could work out not taking the day off and still making it down in time.

I got to LaGuardia, literally walked right through security, and sat myself right down at Bisoux in the Delta Terminal for a glass of wine.

I sat down, all ready to just zone out and enjoy some me time…and I sat down straight across from someone I knew from Junior League and we chatted for two hours. New York is really such a tiny place. Bisoux was really cute, and I loved that they had charging stations right at the high-top table, although my Kindle was beyond dead and didn’t get juiced up quickly enough when I realized I should plug it in.

You can order everything straight from the iPads they have set up at the table, and you can even have things delivered from the Cibo Market in the terminal to the bar.

Like a banana. What exquisite banana photography.

After two glasses of wine, I boarded my delayed flight, which then got delayed further. Poor Meghann ended up waiting more than two hours for me, since we’d coordinated flying in at the same time and renting a car together.

Hello? Theodora? Where are you?

Just kidding, Hertz has this interesting system where you video chat with a customer service rep to rent your car. I was endlessly amused, and waved a few times at Terri, but she never waved back.

FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY, we made it to the pre-wedding reception.

And I proceeded to drink ALL THE WINE.

Hence why I took such a blurry picture, obviously.

I hate my hair in a ponytail and that I didn’t have time to change. (We came straight from the airport.) I don’t like being underdressed. Oh well.

Meghann and I hung for a little while and met some of Anne’s friend and family before heading to the hotel to crash HARD.

Because there was obviously running to be done this morning.

Excuse my ridiculously high ponytail; I thought I was going to cheerleading tryouts after the run.

We ran 3 miles with the bride and some of her friends, and then Meghann and I planned to do 9 more to get to 12, but my body was just not having it. I’ve been fighting off a cold all week, and I just didn’t have 12 miles in me this morning. We got to 9, and I felt okay with that.

We went to a cute little bakery called Bon Matin for breakfast, and I got an egg wrap. I know you’re surprised. It had avocado, tomato, spinach, parmesan and deliciousness in it and totally hit the spot.

Time for a little fun before the wedding festivities!

    Have fun!

    Also, I feel like LaGuardia is the best kept travel secret of NYC. After so many flights out of JFK I was SHOCKED at how easy it was to get in and out of LGA. There’s almost never a line for security, the gates are not miles away, and in general it just feels so much more chill. T5 is definitely a cool terminal, but it can be pretty stressful at times. I was so glad I discovered the LGA secret — awesome for traveling with a dog! (And, children, I would guess…but I can only speak to the canine experience)
