Weekend Recap: Birthdays and Awards

The menu // The feast // Nnenna and I (with flash, so not the best pic)
Friday: I met up with Alex of Delayed Missives and Nnenna of Star Crossed Smile to celebrate Nnenna's birthday at Bread & Tulips. She didn't get to have a proper because of Hurricane Sandy. I enjoyed some tortellini while they feasted on a meat plate which took up the entire table.

Saturday: Caught up on things in my inbox and on my DVR. Are we getting closer to understanding what the big secret meetings are about on Scandal? I think I know but don't want to spoil it for anyone. Organized my life for the weeks ahead. Did some laundry. Watched one of Netflix's recommendations, A Little Help, featuring Jenna Fischer from The Office. Wasn't that good.
Sunday: If you've been reading my weekend recaps often enough... then you can pretty much guess what I did on Sunday. FOOTBALL! It was a very disappointing day for New York Giants fans, but Peyton didn't let me down! Sunday was also Veteran's Day and the Empire State Building was lit up in red, white and blue. I've had several men in my family serve in the military. My grandfather's brother died in WWII. Veterans and their families sacrificed a lot for this country so be sure to thank them.

Also, Alex kindly nominated me for a Sunshine Award! She asked 10 questions of the bloggers she nominated so here are my answers:

1. Gryffindor or Slytherin? Not a fan of Harry Potter, sorry Alex!

2. Cupcakes or cookies? So hard to choose! I love all baked goods.

3. Gold or silver? I think silver looks better on me but love both.

4. Dresses or pants? This one is easy... pants!

5. Lace or studs? Studs. All day, every day.

6. J.Crew or Zara? Hmmm... J.Crew.

7. Wedges or heels? Wedges.

8. Google or Bing? Google that ish!

9. Eggs Benedict or Belgian waffles? Belgian waffles with whip cream and fresh fruit.

10. Downton Abbey or The Walking Dead? I don't watch either... GAME OF THRONES!

What did you do this weekend?
