Wow, what a crazy weekend. But totally crazy in a good way. It’s amazing how much I did and saw in the span of two days.

In summary, it was freaking hot this weekend. Like over 100 degrees hot. Just plain gross. Saturday morning I woke up early and grabbed an ice coffee and a quick walk with my hubby to check out some stoop sales (what we call “yard” sales in the city).  I went to the gym and did some “lazy” cardio (i.e. cardio while reading a magazine), and then I did some random chores around the apartment.  Later on in the afternoon both the hubby and I met my friend Tracy for lunch. Tracy and I then got mani-pedi’s and made a quick stop at a new shoe store (that has vegan shoes, yay!), and then we all met up again for a late afternoon cocktail and bar snacks. The hubby and I enjoyed the rest of the evening relaxing at home.

Sunday is where things got a bit crazy. We were originally supposed to go to the beach, but since it was drizzling we scrapped those plans. So the hubs and I decided to grab brunch and figured we’d head home right after. Long story short, after brunch we took an adventurous drive around our surrounding neighborhoods, discovering everything from a rooftop farm in Brooklyn, the actual boardwalk set from Boardwalk Empire, and some JR street art. To keep up our spontaneous adventure, we decided to take the bridge on over into Queens and visit the Noguchi Museum, make a quick trip to Costco and then ended the evening at our local dog run with Portia. Phew!

What did everyone else do this weekend? I’m so excited for next weekend, it’s my big 30th birthday weekend!
