This past weekend was a little bit of waiting around until last minute. There were people coming to the city, and then there were people not coming to the city, and then they were coming again, and then they weren't. On top of that it was my Dad's Birthday this weekend! So I had to make sure to get home at some point and spend time with my parents. Friday, I hunkered down in my apartment with Lua for the day and watched 180° South on repeat. Which probably prompted Friday's post about finding the thing you're passionate about and pursuing it.
Saturday morning I got my yoga fix in bright and early, then stopped for a decaf treat on the walk home. I don't have coffee during the week, you know how much I love my yerba mate, but I really like grabbing a cup of joe on the weekends. It was on the cusp of raining all day, so I stayed in to try and catch up on a few things.
That night I braved the weather to meet up with Lisa from Tree & Kimball and her sister. The lovely Melissa braved her cold and came with me in the torrential down pour to Brooklyn. We made stops at The Manhattan Inn, Five Leaves, and a magical place where they mix cinnamon and vanilla with your tequila. It was an incredibly fun and laid back night bouncing around with some really great people.
The sun finally came out on Sunday and I drove all the way to my parents with the sun roof open. Since it was my Dad's Birthday that weekend I knew I had to bake something delicious. I found an Ina Garten recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. They came out pretty delicious. We went to an easy dinner that night and my Dad enjoyed all the cookies he wanted when we he got home.
At some point during the day Lua decided it was a good idea to go in my parents backyard and roll around in something gross and smelly. It was bath time for her after that. It was all around a great weekend.
The last day to enter the Giveaway is tomorrow! If you haven't gotten in your entry yet you have one day left before I announce the winners on Friday!
