Refreshed and Rejuvenated...

...is how I'm feeling today.

I had the absolute best weekend. I enjoyed drinks and dinner with friends on Friday and said goodbye to a sweet friend who is moving to Boston. My Maid of Honor was in New York on Saturday so she and I and a couple other girls spent a long day out and about in the city. As much as I love all my friends in Hoboken and New York, it was very refreshing to spend a day with some of my college favorites.

Kappas at the NYC public library - where Carrie and Big almost got married. 
Hopefully I'll be able to share more details and photos later in the week. 

Sunday Corey and I took a long, seven mile walk with Riley. Then, we ran errands before meeting some friends to watch the Giants playoff game. Which was amazing! I even got a little excited and pro football is not my fav. We went out with friends afterwards and celebrated the win but also being off work today by staying out way too late. 

Corey and I slept in until ten this morning. That absolutely never happens but it felt great and I feel so refreshed. I have the whole day today to clean our apartment, work on some wedding things, and then take the Christmas boxes to his parents house where we're planning to cook them dinner. 

A three day weekend was exactly what I needed after being sick for six weeks. I feel like I actually need a three day weekend every weekend - I would get so much done! I'm actually pretty excited for this week. I feel like I can get back into my normal blogging schedule, my normal gym schedule, and my normal cooking schedule. (We've been eating a lot of take out and spaghetti while I've been sick.) 

Extra sleep and an extra day off to relax has really made me feel energized but I think seeing my old friends is what really improved my mood this weekend. I love all of the friends I've made since moving here, but there's something so uplifting about laughing for twenty minutes over something silly we did in college or a special inside joke you have with a friend you've known forever.  

I'll post more photos from my weekend later this week. For now, I'm enjoying a day to get things done around the apartment and spend time with Corey. Happy Monday girls!
