Weekend Highlights

I’m such a hot mess.  I realized last night that I had jury duty early this morning.  I was stuck in a court room all day without my iphone.  I felt so disconnected to the outside world.  I actually used a pay phone today.  When was the last time you did that?  When I was leaving the court house, I got stuck in the rain without an umbrella.  All I wanted to do when I got home was soak in a hot tub and eat some comfort food.  I was reminiscing about last weekend which was one of those perfect New York weekends.  Friday night, my girlfriend and I went to the Skinny Girl cocktail party at the Dream Hotel downtown.  It was the perfect setting with low calorie cocktails and with a great girlfriend.  What a great way to start the weekend!  Saturday was sunny and beautiful so I decided to walk around the meatpacking district since it’s always buzzing with energy.  I grabbed a coffee with my beautiful chef friend Katie Lee (didn’t get into Pastis) and headed to Connecticut to celebrate my college girlfriend’s big milestone birthday.  My favorite thing about the weekends are the brunches!  My girlfriend and I discovered this cute little brunch spot on 9th Avenue called Medi.  It had an outdoor garden which is pretty rare in Hell’s Kitchen.  It was the perfect way to end the weekend and start the week.  Why is it that we always LIVE for the weekends?  Maybe we need to inject some fun in during the week.  Sweet dreams and have a good night xo
