{weekend wrap-up} : sleep, coffee, sun

Friday: I had been invited to a show in Brooklyn with a friend but after 37 hrs of being awake I skipped it and went home to sleep – passed out at 9:15pm.

Saturday: Laid out in Central Park { this time I used sunscreen properly learned my lesson on that one}  with B. We of course has an ice cream stop that afternoon. 16 Handles. Birthday Cake + {sf} Praline . Oh my. Skipping a co-workers birthday & concerts  B & I met back up to grab a bite to eat & going back to her apartment to watch a movie. Crossing town I discovered that there was no place for a quick bite on my side of the park so I ended up getting a wrap from the Pera food truck right before it closed. Yum – summer squash, hummus, feta & basil. I love Central Park, there’s always something new to find.

Sunday: Brunch at Columbus Tavern.  We were starving, in gym clothes and not finding a place. The wait staff was wonderful but it was noisy with families and my frittata was simply eggs and dry toast. Walked off brunch by going along the Hudson River Park. Lack of sleep caught up with me along with the walking for hours and I crashed, not even the delicious coffee at Bouchon Bakery or 1/2 of a sinful chocolate chip cookie {so worth it} could revive me, so I headed home.

What fun / new things did you do this weekend?

Weekend at the movies

Loved. Hilarious.

Um…I should have brushed up on my ’20s literature culture

And to make sure I got my vitamin D: 

Saturday: Apparently I need to get
reacquainted with sunscreen. Hello sunburn    

Sunday: Veuve Cliquout Polo Match on Governors Island

 Fact: I grew up around the Bridgehampton Polo & Hampton Classic events so I couldn’t take this one seriously ….. apparently everyone else did. Hello H&M dress.

Fact: We were behind this lady at some point while in line.  Apparently I need to go hat shopping.

An light 3m -er was also tackled Sunday morning.
