Weekend Wanderings: Rye Bridal Shower

After a lovely evening spent at Toast with old friends on Friday, I woke up early on Saturday to get in a run and catch the train to Rye for my cousin-to-be's bridal shower.  It was at Morgan's Fish House, a fantastic little nautical restaurant with a killer brunch and adorable decor.  I'd definitely go back there; it really fits my aesthetic lately!  The shower was a lot of fun, and I got to meet the newest member of our family, baby Hailey!  She turns a year old on Wednesday, and I'd still never seen her, so it was great to spend a little time with her.  Wandering around Rye for a bit after my train got in early was wonderful.  It's an adorable little town, and other than trips to Playland in middle school, I'd never really been there before.

After the shower, the bride had one of her two bachelorette parties, and we celebrated first at her and my cousin's gorgeous apartment, and then at Alta.  I'd walked by Alta so many times when I was studying at NYU, but I'd never been.  It's just beautiful inside, and every single item we got was delicious.  I was particularly in love with the short rib, but honestly, everything was a huge hit, and since we were a big group and it's a tapas place, we ordered close to 20 dishes!  The atmosphere would be perfect for a date (very intimate and beautiful), and while it's not cheap, it's not exorbitant and I think I'll be back.

The beautiful bride!
Sunday was spent mostly on errands (is anyone else sick of weekends being engulfed with chores?) and reading, but Roger and I did manage to slip away for a little bit for brunch at Kitchenette early in the morning.  We really do need to cut back on eating out on the weekends!  Still, it's one of the few ways we really spend time together now that he's so busy with school, so I'll take it, diet be damned.
