WHAT WERE YOUR ORIGINAL PLANS FOR THE WEEKEND AS OF FRIDAY AFTERNOON? DID ANY FALL THROUGH?
I knew this weekend was going to be absolutely packed. One of my very good friends, Sara, took a bus down from Boston and came in Friday afternoon. I hadn’t seen her in about fourteen months, so I was definitely looking forward to spending some time together before she moves to Denver, CO. We met at Port Authority after I finished work and headed back to Jersey together. We spent most of Saturday together as well, after which she headed back into Manhattan before her bus to Boston. I then helped a cousin run some errands for another cousin’s baby shower on Sunday morning. I ended Saturday with a great meal with some family — we grabbed Mexican food for dinner and got ice cream for dessert at one of our favorite places, Applegate Farms in Montclair, NJ. Sunday was busiest of all, with a morning baby shower and a sweet sixteen in the evening. I was drained by Sunday night, but had gotten to spend some time with so many important people in my life, so worth it.
HOW MUCH MONEY DID YOU SPEND?
I spent about $45 this weekend.
WERE YOU HAPPY WITH HOW YOUR WEEKEND TURNED OUT? WAS THERE ANYTHING YOU WISHED YOU DID?
ANY FUN PLANS FOR NEXT WEEKEND?
Another reunion! I’m meeting a friend who I went to high school with, whose family has since moved to Boston. I haven’t seen her in three years so I’m definitely looking forward to getting dinner together.
Your recommendation for the best spot on the weekends?
My bed. I need to catch up on sleep!
