A Long Weekend

2012 May 29

This weekend, I:

  • Caught up with friends we hadn’t seen in a while.
  • Wore a new maxi dress I bought from a street market a few weeks ago:

  • Ate an amazing dinner at Colonie and got to watch it get cooked right in front of me!

  • Took Chief for a walk to see the Tall Ships in New York Harbor for Fleet Week.
  • Got a bad sunburn on said walk. Wear sunscreen, friends!
  • Also discovered a new favorite running route along the waterfront and through Brooklyn Bridge Park.
  • Went running.
  • Ate fried green tomatoes and delicious fried chicken at Peaches Hot House in Bed-Stuy on a double date.
  • Drank beer.
  • Slept late.
  • Finished reading What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us. A great story collection!
  • Watched all the episodes of Girls. I think I like it.
  • Saw exhibits on Early Egyptian art, Islamic art, and Prada/Schiaperelli (more on that to come) at the Met.
  • Ate fro-yo for dinner.
  • Gave thanks to our veterans and soldiers.
All in all, a great weekend. It’s not easy to get back into the swing of work and responsibilities, but that’s life!
What did you all do for Memorial Day?

      I love the maxidress ensemble. So chic, so summery!

      I went on my first whale watch this weekend and got to see real whales. My heart could not stand all of the ocean majesty. Whales are so awesome.

      GREAT sunglasses! Yay, tortoiseshell! You look so cute in your maxi dress outfit. Chief is the perfect accompaniment!

      I didn’t even know Wes had a new movie out, so I’m glad I read about it on your blog–need to go see it!
