An Almost Perfect Weekend

I had a weekend that actually deserves a Monday morning recap.  Here is a list of all the things that made this weekend almost perfect:

1.  The weather.  50 degrees in February is perfection to me.  The sun was shining (don't worry, I had sunscreen on) and we spent as much time outdoors as we possibly could.  And the time spent inside included views like this one.

2.  I met Carly Rae Jepsen.  OK fine, I didn't meet her, but I did see her as Cinderella on Broadway and she did fantastic.  We also were lucky enough to see Fran Drescher perform as the stepmother.  Such a good date night.

3.  We took the dogs to a new dog park and Lola discovered a new love for playground equipment.

4.  We enjoyed beers (and there might have been a shot of fireball.)  OK, there was shots of fireball because we were celebrating our awesome weekend and we discovered that our shot glasses were different sizes which earned us an additional shot from our lovely bartender.

5.  We found a parking spot in Hoboken.  This is something we've been failing at since we moved here, so we were beyond excited yesterday when we actually found a spot on the street near our final destination.  

6.  I bought 2 new BBW candles for $22.  The apartment will smell like tropical places in no time.

7.  I actually ran this weekend.  Plus, I discovered that my buddies, Samantha and Nikki, are using the same app I am and we are all starting at the same time.  This means I have a much better chance at sticking with it.  Oh and whoever added fans to treadmills is my new best friend.

8.  We had a scheduled Saturday morning FaceTime date with one of our best friends back home.  I think living far away would be much harder if I wasn't able to see my friends weekly via my iPad.  Now, I just need to get them to all come and visit.

9.  We made an ice cream/candy run to CVS last night and I don't feel bad about it.

10.  I GOT TICKETS FOR JIMMY FALLON (well, kind of).  Yes, that happened on Friday afternoon.  I've been watching the website like a freak after losing my opportunity to get March tickets.  When I checked Friday, they were showing openings for this week!!!!!!!  I think we snatched up the only 2 spots that they had.  I have a 1/2 day Tuesday now so that I can wait in line and get myself a nice red chair to watch my favorite person LIVE in the flesh.  I will probably cry if they don't let me in, but I'm trying to prepare myself for that since they overbook the shows.  Wish us luck and set your DVR's.  I'm sure I'll be talking about it a lot more this week.

So, there you have it.  An almost perfect weekend.  Things that would have made it perfect include french toast, a family visit, the USA men's hockey team winning a medal, winning the lottery, world peace.  You know, the usual stuff.  Now, it's time to prepare for the cold that is coming back.


  1. Your weekend sounds perfect Steph! I cant believe you got to see Carly Rae AND FRAN! I love her. Also this weather was fantastic!

  2. Yay for an awesome weekend! Cannot wait until the weather stays warm, so weekend updates can be this fun all the time!

    And wahooo for 10k training buddies! We should probably exchange numbers, so we can all keep each other one track easier :)

  3. Your weekend sounded amazing! And those views, stop, I'm dying for those kind of views. I miss water every day, yet we went from the mountains to flat Texas.

  4. You had me at Fireballs and beer.
    Also, I'm PAINFULLY jealous of your Jimmy Fallon tickets... assuming they're yours. Which, well, I have lots of faith they will be. Make sure you tell him to ask me to be on his show... I think he's behind on his invitations because I haven't gotten mine in the mail yet.

  5. That sounds like a perfect weekend!! I also took advantage of the 50 degree weather and went for a run - it felt great!! What app are you using?

  6. That first picture is so perfect with the sun shining! Makes me happy-- and I agree the warmer weather this weekend felt like a dream! Not impressed it's getting cold again this week, but oh well! I need to invest in some new summery candles- maybe once I finally put my winter ones away the weather will change for good :)

  7. I adore Jimmy! Congrats on getting tickets.

    I think this weekend's weather was so needed by most of us on the East Coast. A respite for the people!

  8. Drinks on the water sounds like weekend perfection to me!

  9. Now I need to go Cinderella ASAP! That cast would make me so happy!

  10. LUCKY! i love jimmy fallon! he's so funny. hope you get to see a live taping!

  11. Nice weekend. Loved the pic of the beer taps over the water. I saw that Cinderella had a few stars in it - sounds cool.

    I must get Jimmy Fallon tickets one day!


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
