Weekend Happenings

Happy Monday ladies! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. We sure did!

We kicked off the weekend with a night out with friends on Friday evening at some local bars. It was pretty low key but very fun.

On Saturday, Corey and I took Riley on a four mile walk (we do this once almost every weekend) and enjoyed the wonderful warm weather. I put away the puffer jacket and pulled out my North Face. It felt amazing!  I cleaned the apartment before lunch. I love a perfectly clean home - I even finished all my laundry and changed the sheets. It makes me feel super productive when I can get a workout and chores in before noon.

Then, we headed into the city. Corey met some friends to watch basketball and I headed to the upper east side to the Lunch with Lilly event at Manhattan's only Lilly boutique. It is such a cute store and was full of all the new spring designs. I was really impressedwith the size of the boutique and as usual with any Lilly store, the service was top notch.
I picked up the Adeline dress. At first I was super upset because it took forever to get to the boutique because of subway maintenance and then the dress was only available in a size larger and smaller than what I always wear in Lilly. I was feeling ambitious so I tried on the size smaller and it fit perfectly! I guess our hours upon hours at the gym have paid off.
I also picked up the Buttercup shorts in the white seersucker. I can't wait to wear them. They are beyond precious! The Lunch with Lilly event was fun - lemonade and pink punch with cute mini cupcakes. I got two free tumblers with my purchase - they are a pretty pink and green print and I used one immediately for a glass of water when I got home. The bright floral was a much needed addition to our New Jersey home.

Visiting the Lilly store really boosted my mood. It was a fun weekend anyway but walking in the doors of the store was like going home.

Then I headed to a Brother Jimmy's BBQ in Union Square to meet Corey and some friends. I felt like I was being spoiled with southerness. This restaurant hails from North Carolina and has a "Southern Appreciation Night" where I can use my SC license to get half price entrees.

Yesterday was a lazy day. We worked out, ran errands, and I visited with a friend for the afternoon. Hope your week is getting of to a great start!
