Back on the face of the planet

So I had to fall off the face of the planet for a bit to study for the CPA and it's nice to climb back on. I had quite a lovely weekend-I just LOVE the weekend. I never realized how much until full time employment came around.

Friday night I went to a dinner party. My wonderful friend Jen cooked us all dinner and it was so yummy!! I've decided that I need to start cooking more-at least once or twice a month. Sad that it has come to that. I think I've eaten more cereal dinners since moving here than I did in college.

Saturday we went to brunch at Schiller's Liquor Bar down on the lower East side. It was really good! I don't think I'm much of a fan of the LES though. 1-It's like a million miles away from us and takes ages to get down there and 2-it's super dirty and gross down there. Unfortunately a lot of the good restaurants are down there, so I guess it's worth the trip.

Saturday afternoon I went to the Sotheby's auction display! I think that may be one of my favorite things I have done in the city. The coming auction is entitled Magnificent Jewels and it features all kinds of amazing jewelry! It was like being a museum-except better because you could actually touch and try on the jewelry! I loved it!! I also went and saw "How to Train Your Dragon." I LOVED it! Such a cute movie-definitely recommend it to everyone to see! I ended the evening with a trip to Korea Town to do kareoke for a friend's birthday. It was quite the experience and so much fun!

It was a wonderful weekend and I'm so excited to not have to study for at least another 2 months! Yay!

I'm really glad you are back on the face of the planet. And that your test is done. And I am glad that you thought the "How to train your dragon" movie was good.... because I want to see it! :o)

Yay! I loved that movie too! It was fantastic to see you last weekend! Too bad we didn't get to play as much as I wanted!

I'm trying to cook more meals rather than cereal for dinner too! :)
