Weekend Wanderings - Super Bowl Weekend

It was quite the weekend!  On Friday after work, I had a poetry date with my wonderful friend Sophie.  It's been way too long since we got together, so it was nice to see her and great to get a little work done - two submissions and a little bit of editing.  Keeping the literary theme of the evening going, I had my virtual book club that night, discussing The End of the Suburbs, which was a really interesting book.  We had a great discussion, too, focusing more on our personal reactions to the book and personal experiences with the suburbs.

On Saturday, I spent most of the morning cleaning out our house, which really hadn't been cleaned since before Christmas because of our ongoing heat troubles.  I did three massive loads of laundry, picked up a few groceries for the week, and then Roger and I teamed up to tackle the house.  (He did most of it, though, since I was reeling from laundry-duty.)  I met up with Keriann, Erin, and Lauren for drinks and dinner at the Half Pint, and it was great to see all of them.  We wandered through SoHo and the LES, and ended up capping off the evening with some cupcakes before we all went our separate ways, and Lauren headed up to Harlem to stay at our place.  It was great to get to know her better, and I only wish we'd had more time to hang out during the weekend!

While we were wandering, Erin scaled a building:

On Sunday, Lauren headed out on some fantastic adventures (I wish I could have joined her!), and I went to my pilates class and then spent the day putting together our dinner share for the week, baking peanut butter brownies, and prepping my lovely self for Danielle's Super Bowl party that night.  We had a blast watching the game (and the commercials - though I was less impressed with those this year), and Danielle made some incredible snacks for us to enjoy.

Her friend Conrad was obsessed with getting a photo of Peyton Manning next to his "Loser" beer from Seattle, and then I became a little obsessed with getting a photo of him getting a photo. Meta.

Overall, a really nice weekend, and I was glad that the weather was so beautiful!  Today things are rather snowy, so it was nice while it lasted, and certainly made things easier on those footballs fans at the stadium!
