on my weekend in pictures.

oh three day weekends. while the weather could have been better, i'll take you. it was a great start to the summer - good food and good friends, which i feel increase during either (a) warmer weather or (b) holidays. and we had both! i kicked off the weekend by breaking out my white pants and white bag, an annual ritual, and on saturday a good friend from philadelphia came to visit. we caught up, drank a little champagne, had a divas dinner with tina at the best place ever invented to have divas dinner (beauty and essex, also where we celebrated galentine's day, of course), followed by a screening of kings of summer. duuuuuuuudes. go see this movie. it's opening this weekend and it's super good and funny and a coming of age story anyone can relate to, guy or girl. we even got brian to take a brief break from studying to join us (and he said it was totally worth it, too!) it was, fittingly, screened in the auditorium of a high school on the lower east side (and yes, high schools on the lower east side look no different than high schools anywhere else), and we followed it up with a diet coke and fries. and then some wine and cocktails, but for a minute there i really felt like i was 18 again. (good thing i'm not though, because the wine was quite good). the rest of the weekend was low key after that. brunch, errands, long runs and the like. we ended it by reminiscing about our trip to italy right at this time last year (can't believe it's been a year!) that trip was the best, ever. it truly, truly was. i am forever grateful for that week and the relaxation and cheap but delicious wine it brought into my life. then, brian, like the old sap he is, made me hot dogs for dinner. what a keeper i tell ya. and now here we are - back at the grindstone. but my week is cut even shorter with a trip to nashville this weekend, so i don't mind. just gotta get to thursday and i'm golden!

  6. Thanks for the movie recommendation. I thought it looked good, now I have to go see it. :)

    I've been thinking about my international travels, too. :) It's bittersweet. I've never been to Italy, but I've always wanted to go.

    Looks like a great 3 day weekend. :)

  8. This sounded so lovely! I LOVE long weekends and although lots of activities are fun and exciting the down time can be just as enjoyable. Glad to hear you liked the movie! I watched the trailer last week and thought it looked great, perfect summer movie! Hope you're having a wonderful week! xoxo
