Upstate “Homey” Feeling

15 Jan

Good morning!

I’m up in Montgomery, NY staying at my old roommates house because we have an alumni basketball game today at 10:30. Originally I wasn’t going to come up here till today, but I was yearning for a “home” like feel. Although I adore my little Brooklyn apartment, it’s lacking in the “homey” category because my roommate and I don’t have the money to buy furniture and decor for the living room.

Megan, roommate of three years, moved home after graduation while she goes to grad school and has one of the loveliest homes I’ve ever stepped foot it. She one of three girls and her parents are honestly the most generous couple I know. They’re still so in love after 25 years and they’ve built a home together that gives you that warm fuzzy feeling when you walk inside.

This is Meg and I graduation weekend and it pretty much sums up our friendship.

My mom’s a pretty good photographer huh?

Meg, her parents and I wined and dined last night at a fantastic neighborhood last night, came back and caught up on the Jersey Shore. “How do you walk in with banana and expect everything to be peaches?” – Pauly D, I ❤ you.

This morning good ‘ol alumni of the Mount Saint Mary College Women’s Basketball program are playing in the first annual alumni game today! It’s going to be so much fun. All of my friends are coming up (my mom too)! And tonight we’re going to pretend like we’re still in college and rage. Hard.

Montgomery is only 15 minutes from Newburgh so I took the dreaded Metro North Railroad up to Beacon and waiting for Meg to get out of work. Remember when I used to commute two hours each way? Well during that dreaded time, I never appreciated how pretty the Hudson River is.

This photo clearly doesn’t do it justice, but you catch my drift.

Upon arrival in the lovely Beacon, NY I walked up to Bank Square Coffee House because It’s adorable and they have the best lattes this side of the Hudson.

Coconut. Latte. = DELICIOUS

I had to walk up to Main Street from the train, wasn’t too far but it was super cold.

Just finished a hot bowl of oats and am about to head to the alumni game! Woop woop
