It was another whirlwind week around here and I truly can't believe it's Friday again. I feel as though I've been all over the place and haven't had a chance to catch my breath. Work has been crazy busy and I just so happened to have a few after work events this week as well! Here's the wrap up!
On Tuesday, I was super psyched for our inaugural ladies night out for all the women in our building. I'll talk more about it next week, but we had an awesome wine and cheese night with a great turn out! I'm looking forward to more of those coming up.
I also met up with some former co-workers at the Empire Hotel rooftop for drinks. It was so beautiful and I had so much fun that I completely just didn't take a photo of the amazing view up Columbus Ave. But it was just really fun and nice to see people who I haven't seen in years.
Penelope and I also did some rare weeknight baking. We had some old bananas that I could either toss or bake with immediately and so we made banana bread. It came out so great. We have another bunch nearing its life's end and so I see another batch in our future this weekend. She actually loved the chocolate chip pumpkin muffins to my surprise, so I think I'll try a healthy banana muffin recipe with her this weekend. It makes for a great, easy on the go breakfast for her.
I watched...John Oliver take on mental illness. I finally finished Scandal season 4. Brooklyn 99 was ok. I do love the Dennis cameo.
I listened to...a few podcasts but mostly still obsessing over the Hamilton soundtrack, so not much new news there. I'm still loving Happier.
I bought...a few items from the Madewell sale. I've never shopped there before but upon receipt of a few items, I'm really happy with the quality of their clothing. I also got these pretty loafers that are chic yet comfortable right out of the box.
I ate...soup, cheese and crackers, salad. Last night we ordered wings. I've kind of fallen off the Dukan wagon once again and I'm just eating what I want. We will see how that goes.
What are you up to this weekend? Tonight I have Penelope's back to school night, followed by kids movie night in our building. Tomorrow, we are heading to harvest fest in Jersey City. I'm also off on Monday (whoop) so I'll have some time to work on getting my apartment in order and spend some QT with my P.
