I finally got that haircut I've been meaning to get, and I did some damage at the Banana Republic Outlet with my mom (think this jacket can pass off as a work appropriate blazer?). I also got to catch up with a bunch of my family friends at a party last weekend (where I wore a sari!), kicked off the summer with the first burger barbeque at home on the deck, and as you can see from the first of this Friday Five went to New York City!
I've said it before, I'll say it again: I love cities and I love NYC. I was definitely disappointed to not be able to work in the city this summer (but I was absolutely happy to forgo that horrendous commute), so it by far made my week to spend some time there last weekend. But seriously, you cannot beat those views! Between some picnicking in Brooklyn with my brother Kevin and his friend Christine, some pizza on his 40th floor roof, and brunch overlooking the East River the next morning, some time in NYC is always good for my soul. (Spoiler alert: I'll be there next weekend as well!)
It was the perfect way to segue into my first week of work. I'm starting to get settled in there now, and things are moving along nicely. While I broke up the work week with a sushi dinner with high school friends one night, I'm looking forward to meeting up with college friends this weekend at a wedding! To say I'm excited is an understatement. Have a good weekend!
