Newport Weekend 2013

Only fitting since this blog is called Summer in Newport that I fully disclose the details about my weekend up in Newport last week.  After staying with BFF Brooke in Providence Wednesday and Thursday nights, I left the show on Friday and headed over the Pell Bridge to Newport and to meet up with all my old 12 Dixon roommates.  We just saw each other over Memorial Day, so it was a treat to be able to hang out with them again so soon.  Hard to believe that I spent so much time up there only a few summers ago.  Now, I am lucky to get up there for a long weekend...but grateful for any time to be there.

Sue, Heidi and I started out at the Cooke House for dinner, my favorite place.  It did not disappoint.  I ran into some friends as soon as we got there...some from my first summer there in 2007!


Off to the new hotspot that I had been hearing about, Midtown Oyster Bar.  It was super fun.


Saturday was the last day of my show in Narragansett.  Since it was a little slow.  I took pictures of some of my neighbors' booths...everyone was so nice.  It is my favorite show these days, they treat the vendors so nice and the setting is to die for....





I had some jewelry there...


And some serious customers...



while outside...there was serious beach action going on...


 Saturday night, we started off on the roof top of the Vanderbilt Grace Hotel. The view was amazing...




We went to dinner at 22 Bowen, which was amazing and then, unbelievably, we went home, everyone exhausted.  This was the first visit to Newport without stopping by the Deck or the Dockside.

Sunday morning, I dragged everyone to my favorite breakfast spot, Atlantic Grille, the best pancakes ever.  We ate and then got ready for the beach.  The weather was beautiful.

When I finally got into my beach chair, I could not believe I was actually at the beach.  It is so beautiful there and it was a perfect beach day.


We stayed until it cleared out and then Tara and I got ready for Cooke House, round 2.  I was dying to go back again.  My flight was super early, so we didn't stay out late, but had so much fun.


Flying back into Fort Lauderdale, I had mixed emotions, sad to get back to work and happy to be home.  I wasn't prepared for this....

But thanks to my Dad-sponsored AAA membership, they fixed it asap and I was on my way.
Such a fun trip, can't wait to go back again.

Loving Summer in Newport,
xoxo kp
