How was your weekend?

After a birthday-driven, cocktail-infused couple of days, my plan for the weekend was clear: LAY LOW.

Bo-ring, right? In my defense, I had social plans six days out of the previous eight.My liver isn’t 23 years old anymore. Neither is the rest of me.

First there was a gluttonous, delicious birthday dinner at Javelina – yes, the site of that hilarious NYT review. If you get there, make sure to get at least one kind of queso. I was too hungry to take pics of ours so here’s one from Instagram.

Young Chicklette loved to sleep too

I asked my mother if she could dig up any of my childhood journals. Recently she delivered.

My eighth grade journal was apparently started as a part of a school assignment. I can tell because each entry includes a vocabulary word which I would helpfully underline. As a result, though, the entries in this journal are 1. brief and 2. not juicy. Fortunately there are more journals coming.

You’ll be glad to know that one of my key personality traits emerged early: I have been a lady of leisure since the beginning.

JournalIn my defense, by eighth grade, I was in dance classes and rehearsals at least ten hours per week. On top of that, I was relatively serious about school and involved in activities like cheerleading and piano lessons.

Give a girl the weekend to nestle in bed, OK?

Sadly, my handwriting has only deteriorated. Hooray for email!

Trying to become high maintenance and succeeding

After what felt like a long, un-fun week, I needed a weekend to recover.

I’d post more about how hormones made me feel like a zombie with bad cramps, but I do hope to see a woman become President in my lifetime.

I survived the mother-daughter weekend!

I had a mother-daughter weekend in the DC area. A cousin got married and Mom asked me to be her date. Dad is doing pretty well, but his health ups and downs mean he’s less likely to enjoy all of the standing around a wedding reception can entail, or a four-hour car ride.

I was [mostly] happy to step in, for the chance to see relatives and to try to see old friends in DC, time permitting.

And to see my mother too, yes. So long as she didn’t comment on my weight, hairstyle, lack of boyfriend and/or failure to visit.

The wedding was lovely.

Did you have a good weekend?

The best word for describing my weekend:

Freemans

Yeah.

I had pancakes at brunch at Freemans with Adrienne. Dinner of chicken parm and pasta from Max. Pancakes again at brunch at Spring Natural Kitchen with my Kenya trip friend Caroline.

Spring Natural Kitchen

By the time I woke up Sunday morning, I had gained two of the pounds I lost during the gluten-free experiment.

My honest reaction after eight days of feeling sad about food was “Oh well.”

I’ll worry about exercise tomorrow.

Come back to me, weekend

Once again, NYC got a beautiful weekend after a week of less-than-stellar weather. It was gorgeous. The Linden trees are blooming.

On Friday, I made good on my promise to see Obvious Child. Adrienne joined me for a showing at Nitehawk Cinema, which I love. As Abby told me, this movie was SO great. I need to see it again. Continue reading
