The last few weekends have been a bit of a snooze fest, so I was really excited to have a packed schedule of activities over the weekend.
FRIDAY– After a long week of work it’s tough to get all dolled up for a night out on the tiles. That’s why I was grateful my friends decided for a low key girls night. We went to dinner at Star Tavern, the BEST pizza in NJ. This was definitely a stretchy pants kind of night. And then watched the endless number of Real Housewives episodes that I DVRed…I love that DVR has become a verb.
Saturday night Lindz, her beau JB, and I went to the Brooklyn Academy of Music (aka BAM) to see a performance of Trombone Shorty. I was a little skeptical since I’m not a huge jazz fan, but this guy…I was left speechless! He did a 5 minute solo, literally non-stop. Not sure how he did it, but somehow he simultaneously inhaled while continuing to blow his horn. AMAZEBALLS!!!
After the show we went to Junior’s for the most delicious cheesecake in the world. Since I’ve been 10 years old I wanted my wedding cake to be Junior’s cheesecake. This was Lindz’s first time there, which I couldn’t believe, and she got the full experience. The crazy was all out that night and it was SPECTACULAR!
Sunday I went to my dad’s place for Hannukah brunch. I got these amazing gloves that can be used with my iPhone. Now I won’t have to freeze my fingers off to text.
After brunch…and much needed nap time…I went with My Midget to see “Burlesque”. I went in with very low expectations so as to not be disappointed. Needless to say I was completely BLOWN AWAY with amazingness. I mean it had Cher, Stanley Tucci, a ridiculous story line, and the worst acting performance since Mariah Carey in “Glitter”. In fact, if “Glitter” and “Chicago” had a love child it would most definitely be “Burlesque”. If you haven’t seen it, you MUST! Don’t expect Oscar worthy performances, but Cher is still fab-u-lous, and a Stanley Tucci stole the show.
I also submitted my entries for the Michael Kors contest on Polyvore. What do you think?
