Weekend Update-NYC Saturday! (October 13)

I am immensely behind. Sorry.

I had a lovely NYC Saturday morning. I was going to go to my most favorite spin class but stayed up far too late to think of trekking down to spin. I am sad that I didn't get my act together to make it to class. Instead, we slept in a bit and then got ready for brunch.

Oh how I have missed a good Saturday brunch! Some places in UT have brunch but it's just not the same. Jane, Ashley, and I went to one of my all time favorite spots, Isabella's on the Upper West Side. Love love that place. It was so wonderful to catch up with those girls over a delish brunch. Sharon was supposed to meet up with us but ended up coming after we had finished brunch so we went across the street to get her some Shake Shack.

After grabbing her food, Ashley and I met up with Kristin for some Levain's cookies and a good walk in the park. It was the perfect fall afternoon for park walking and the three of us had a really good chat.

After the park walk, it was time to trek out to Queens for the family events! Saturday night was my Aunt Julie's 90th birthday party. I cannot even fathom what it would be like to be 90 years old. That is SO old! People were supposed to pick an era and dress from that era. I chose the 60's and wore my MadMen dress. Love that dress and use any excuse that I can to wear it!

It was a great party with good food, dancing, and some good family time. It's always fun to see all of my cousins and aunts and uncles. Even Aunt Julie and my 85 year old Uncle Masih were out on the dance floor!
