So far, it’s been a nice little Fall weekend her in New York City. Bo and I are enjoying our first travel free weekend together.
Yesterday after a very productive Friday working from home, I met a co-worker for a manicure and pedicure before meeting Bo and Meg for dinner and a movie. Our dinner was enjoyed al fresco at The Smith filled with stories of Meg’s successful Friday afternoon interview. The Smith downtown is always a great option if you’re looking for a relaxed atmosphere, reliable food that can please both steak and salad lovers and good beer in the East Village.
After dinner we laughed for over an hour and a half! Pitch Perfect opened yesterday in limited theatres across the country, including 3 in New York City. After seeing the previews for it on Thursday night I immediately wanted to see it. I’m a huge fan of Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson. All 3 of us enjoyed it and the humor though I am pretty disappointed in the soundtrack for sale on iTunes.
Luckily I was in bed by 12:30 which meant I could sleep for 8.5 hours and still make it uptown by 10am to volunteer with my New York Junior League committee. Due to snoozing one too many times this morning, breakfast was enjoyed on the subway along with this week’s trash mag.
After volunteering Bo and I met up for a nice little Saturday, including a stop at the Union Square Farmer’s Market, 71 Irving and The Container Store.
Lattes are always better when served with a bit of heart and a smile.
I was all smiles during our shopping trip since Fall has arrived at the Union Square Farmers market!
After that adventure it was off to Container Store and Eataly for some organizing and long run dinner ingredients. Bo and I have had a blast coming up with different pasta based dishes this training season, especially since we’re both training for the marathon.
Walking through the city and Eataly with our Container Store purchases wasn’t exactly fun, but the prospects of an evening at home as soon as we finished helped us get through the tasks quickly.
On our way back home I spent some time playing with Bo’s new iPhone 5 which is supposed to have a better camera than my iPhone 4. Not too shabby Apple, not shabby at all.
The rest of our evening has been spent in the living room and kitchen. After our shopping trip to the Farmer’s Market we were able to update the house for Fall in a few nooks and crannies.
Now it’s time to elevate our feet, enjoy some pasta, sip water, and make sure everything is ready to go for tomorrow’s 20 miler. I’m both excited and so ready for this marathon training test to be over.
Have you started decorating for Fall or Halloween yet? If so, how do you spice up your home for the new season?
