Because Saturday started early with a gym date -- spin and yoga with Kim -- and then on to our "first Saturdays" brunch with the girls. We get together for brunch on the first Saturday of each month (this was our third month), drink bloody marys, catch up, talk about boys, laugh our heads off, then head out for more of the same. Yesterday we drank umpteen bottles of champagne at the Pink Pony after a delicious brunch at Essex and laughed so hard that a neighboring customer kept coming over to check in on us and see what was so funny.
After our 5 1/2 hour brunch, I had to take a nap before meeting Mark for his friend Rob's birthday pub crawl. Although we didn't arrive in time for a drink at the Holland Bar, we were able to spend quality time at Siberia (where I found this awesome sign), Rudy's, and Smith's. It made me look forward to John's East Village Dive Bar Crawl, which I know is coming up sometime soon.
Today I slept late, cleaned house, did some laundry, and made a pot of black & white chili from American Favorites for the super bowl. I think I'm heading up to Augie & Lauren's to watch, and in addition to the chili will be bringing this great-looking jalepeno popcorn my brother gave me as part of a gourmet gift bag.
All in all, a great weekend.
