A Near Perfect Weekend

After last weekend's crazy amount of fun, a juice cleanse that ended with a horrible Thursday night headache and a work week jam packed with pre holiday deadlines, we were so excited to have nothing on our calendars this weekend.  This weekend included so many of my favorite things that I am tempted to call it perfect - also, I'm going to recap it for the 2nd week in a row.

Friday night, Justin had a late appointment about 90 minutes north to meet a customer.  I rode with and we stopped at Woodbury Commons Outlets to check off a few Christmas gifts.  If you live anywhere in the NYC area and haven't taken the trip to those outlets, you should.  They have everything.  We also started listening to Serial and have been sucked in to the greatest podcast ever.  We are only 3 episodes in, so no spoilers.


Saturday, I got up and finished the book I was reading.  Then I made cinnamon rolls and mimosas (pretty much undoing the juice cleanse) and we watched Princess & the Frog in bed.  The weather was warm this weekend, so we headed into the city to the holiday market in Union Square and then wandered around the East Village - eating Crif Dogs again, obviously.  The veggie dogs with peanut butter & crushed potato chips are hard to beat.  We finished the evening watching the first 3 episodes of Homeland season 3.  So far this season, we are a little bored, but that never lasts long with this show.


Sunday, I picked up The Andy Cohen Diaries and spent 2 hours wondering why I'm not best friends with him yet.  We met friends for brunch in Hoboken, watched a few minutes of the Vikings vs. Packers game and then headed home to relax the rest of the day.  The apartment got semi-cleaned, our Christmas cards got ordered and we brought some more clothes to the donation bins.


How was your weekend?  Are you sucked into Serial yet?

  1. Sounds perfect! Great weekend weather-wise to wander the outdoor markets.

    I'm on 6 of Serial I think? I need time to listen that is not on my commute and that has not been happening.

  7. I haven't listened to Serial yet, but everyone's saying I should! I just kind of hate the idea of doing that instead of listening to music or watching TV!

  8. Crushed chips on a veggie dog?! GIMME!!! (I'd pretty much eat anything with crushed potato chips on it, for the record.)

  11. I'm so glad we started listening to Serial on a roadtrip so we could listen to the entire 9 episodes in 2 days! i'm so addicted and I can't believe I now need to wait a week between episodes!
