Weekend Recap!

Happy Monday Readers! 

How was everyone's weekend? I did a whole lot of nothing...and it was absolutely amazing! It was so nice to just have a relaxing weekend not rushing around the city trying to cram a million things in at once! 

On friday night, a friend came over and we had take-out Chinese and watched the Opening ceremonies- what did you all think? I thought the intro was...interesting? It was cool moving through the decades of Britain's history but what did that exactly have to do with the Olympics? It was funny when they did the Queen + James Bond bit and I enjoyed the music montage of the 70s but otherwise ehhh. 

Two things I absolutely loved- the lighting of the torch and the fact that they chose the next generation of Olympians to have the honor- seriously cool. And I also loved watching the Parade of Nations, so cool to see athletes from literally all over the world together in one spot and to know that a majority of the world was watching! 

Saturday, I spent the morning doing a little shopping before I had to head into work at ITP. I picked up these two goodies: 

(Maxi Skirt from Forever 21) 
new Kate Spade earrings! 

Saturday night I enjoyed cocktails and snacks at a local bar/restaurant called Eastern Standard- very relaxed, fun evening! 

fave cocktail- Blueberry Thrill! 

Then Sunday I spent a lazy morning on the couch flipping back and forth between the Olympics and Matilda! Then I spent the afternoon being domestic and baked corn muffins and then at night-homemade guac, and for dinner- grilled asparagus, salmon with a lemon glaze and rice pilaf. Everything was delish! 

My roomies and I also made a froyo trip at the end of the night and watched women's gymnastics! 

Not a bad weekend I would say! Lazy, relaxing and fun! 

Have a great Monday readers! 



  1. Sounds like a perfect weekend to me! Do you have a recipe for that salmon? I'd love to try it with a lemon glaze!

  2. I thought the opening ceremony was a bit odd too. I always love the parade of nations though! Sounds like you had a nice, chill weekend!

  3. I thought the opening ceremony was so odd that I fell asleep! That blueberry thrill cocktail looks yummy!

  4. Loving those Kate Spade earrings! Gorgeous!

    I'm also loving that delicious looking cocktail!!

    Looks like you had a fabulous weekend! (even if this was written a few weeks ago, haha!)
