Laura's high-school friend Alison has been staying with us since she arrived last week and we wanted to make sure that we had a least helped her tick off some of the main tourist sights so our weekend was spent 'being tourists' and it was sooooooooooo good!
Today we went to see the 'Pearly Kings and Queens Harvest festival' at the Guildhall and immerse the 'Americans' in all kinds of English traditions - Morris Dancing, Maypole Dancing, Donkey rides and of course Pearly Kings and Queens! Today however was the second tourist day.....
The first we like to call 'perfect date day in London', not because we were trying to date Alison but because if you EVER want to organise the 'perfect' date in London this day would have all elements. From a feast of food at Borough Market involving taste tests and filling our face with delicious food we headed to the river at Southbank. Here we strolled taking the sights before hitting the heights in the London Eye to enjoy the city at sunset. The evening was spent at London Bridge before ending our night at the 'date' bar over looking Tower Bridge, we can woo anyone our way!
Our London tour-guiding was just limited to this weekend however! On Thursday night we played tour-guide for a night time city drive with Lauren and Sarah from 2 Brides to 2 Mummies. We will do a full breakdown of the journey and the sights in the post later this week but touring our friends round our city makes for an AMAZING evening!
Sarah also got to attend the Civil Partnership ceremony and afternoon tea for the girls over at What Wegan Did Next. It's the first time either of us have been to a Civil Partnership and as Lauren and Sarah were staying with us they kindly looked after Sarah while Laura worked. We tried every which way to get her out of it the working day but a lack of holiday meant she couldn't be there :(
To kick of the week of up and coming posts we thought we include a tribute to our favourite season- Autumn or Fall!
We have sooooooooo many photos and have suuuuuuuuccccchhhh a wonderful week with such AMAZING people that we can't wait to relive it through the blog and we hope you check back and enjoy it too!!!
