Scenes from a Weekend : XVI


wknd
A few weekends ago I was able to meet up with two lovely out of town visitors. Terra from Stylish White Female was in the city for work, and I was so happy I could get together with her for a quick afternoon date before she headed back to Pittsburgh. We met up at a really tasty vegetarian place near midtown, caught up, exchanged life stories, the usual. Then we walked over to Mood so Terra could pick up some supplies for her latest DIMy project involving an old jacket and lots of studs. Our time was short and certainly sweet. I can't wait until I get to see her again. And it's going to be soon!

After Terra and I had our midday meet up, I took myself for an afternoon date in the city. I walked aimlessly for awhile until I decided to take myself for a cup of tea. One of the things that came up while I was in Connecticut with my friend Diana, was the idea of being able to do things alone. I hadn't taken myself on a coffee date in such a long time. The cafe was crowded but I kind of liked the steady buzz of energy. It was a really nice way to spend the afternoon just being out by myself. I did some reading, people watching, wrote for a bit, and probably did more thinking than was good for me (old habits)

On Saturday morning I made last minute plans to meet up with Veronika from Tick Tock Vintage. She came to the city for the day so we decided to have breakfast together. We went to Maison which was delicious. They had a huge outdoor seating area that would have been lovely, but it was still a little too cold. As it was Veronika had to eat her entire meal with her sunglasses on! We walked over to Central Park afterwards before we had to say our good byes. Luckily I'll also be seeing Veronika again in the near future!

I spent the rest of the weekend at my parents. I had to do some spring cleaning to help them get the house ready for some minor facelifts. I cleaned, I watched the sunset,  I drank tea, I played outside with Lua, I blogged, I found things, I wore sweats, I snacked. Seemed like a pretty typical end of weekend spent at my parents.

I'm a little backed up on posts, but hopefully I'll be all caught up in time for my birthday and the close of the Giveaway at the end of this week. Make sure you get your entries in if you haven't already!

That sounds lovely. Personally, I love spending time alone. Going to a cafe with a good book or magazine on the weekend or even going to the movies by myself. Is that weird?? But good for you! I think knowing yourself and spending time by yourself is so key!

My sister and I have also had a conversation about doing things on our own. Over the Christmas holidays I went to the movies by myself. It was weird, but I really liked it. I have been taking myself out on dates ever since.

These photos make me nostalgic for New York. The MoMA is one of my favourite places.

Even though it's your birthday week, I won't be sending you birthday wishes until the actual day. It's bad luck if I do otherwise :)
