You know when you wake up on Monday morning and you are actually refreshed from the weekend? That was me today. That feeling as been rare lately as I have been crazy busy, but it really was a great few days. Here are snap shots for you!
After work on Friday, Alex and I went to one of our favorite restaurants, Boqueria. If you are in the mood for tapas, I HIGHLY suggest stopping by! I have to admit, I forgot to take a picture of the food because I was so hungry I dug right in! Oops! If you stop by, order: Bacon Wrapped Dates, Croquettes, Gambas, Patatas Bravas and Oxtail Stuffed Piqullio Peppers. YUMMMMM!
Saturday morning I met up with Ashley Zeal from Two Peas in a Prada for an outfit shoot (coming soon) and brunch. Ashley is originally from Reno (now based in San Francisco), where I went to college and we have about a million mutual friends but had never met before. I started following her blog as soon as she and her best friend, Emily, launched it over a year ago and became instantly addicted. When we finally met in person on Saturday, it felt like I was meeting up with a life long friend. We got a long so well and had the most wonderful day. She is a fantastic person, and I can’t wait to one day meet Emily as well! Definitely go check out their blog! I know you’ll love it!
We spent the afternoon brunching at Extra Virgin (Get the Baked Eggs!) and walking around the West Village. Stopped by Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment and into cute shops like Bookmarc. (PS Just finished The Good Girl by Mary Kubica, I highly recommend it!!)
Sunday afternoon, Alex and I spent the whole day walking around our neighborhood and enjoying the incredible weather. We stopped in for brunch at Laconda Verde, where you cannot go wrong with what you order – it’s one of my favorite restaurants, and ended the day with junk food and a Netflix marathon.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for the week ahead!
