Hey, there! How’s your weekend been so far? I’ve been trying to get some things done but between the snow and having to watch Spanky for my parents, it’s been a little tough. It’s okay though — I love spending time with Spanky and I need to chill out a bit. I was happy, though, that I was able to clean my room and go to my favorite workout class, Power Strike, this morning!
Most of all, I was really happy to indulge in a deliciously bad-for-you meal last night at my all time favorite Mexican restaurant, Gabriela’s. I’ve been eating pretty healthy all week and knew I would be taking Power Strike today so I didn’t feel too guilty sipping on a skinny margarita (which was quite strong may I add), chips with salsa, and a shrimp quesadilla.
Since it was Gillian’s last night in the city, I knew she’d love to go somewhere fun with good food and amazing drinks. I highly recommend Gabriela’s for anyone looking for amazing Mexican in the city — if it’s a Friday or Saturday night, make sure to make reservations!
As soon as I left Power Strike this morning, I walked into a beautiful Winter Wonderland. NYC truly looks picture perfect with a fresh coat of snow.
The snow and slushy weather sort of forced me to clean my room today – and not only that – but to do nice things for myself like make a home made body scrub for the shower. The scrub consisted of some olive oil, sugar, and honey. And boy was my skin super soft afterwards. I need to make it a point to do this more often!
I also finally received some prints of photographs I have taken throughout 2012. My sister and mom were having a conversation about how annoying it is that people no longer print actual pictures, and instead, upload everything online. I have to say I kind of agree, and am also going to make printing out pictures more of a requirement in 2013. Just like a book, there’s nothing like holding an actual photograph in your hand.
Tomorrow’s agenda includes church, gym, picking up my New Years Eve ticket, and hopefully dropping by Bed Bath and Beyond and food shopping. I have hardly anything in the apartment.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
