This week started off on an interesting note… with my 22nd birthday :)
While historically something terrible always happens on or very near to my birthday, this year the badness happened a week prior. - And because I am an adult now, it meant by the time it was my ACTUAL birthday I wasn’t actually feeling so bad anymore, in fact, I was feeling pretty great.
The day started off with a lunch with a few of my friends at Daisy May’s BBQ, because though it was my birthday, it was also Labor Day, a day of which barbecue is required. I chose Daisy May’s because although I had never eaten there before, I had passed it dozens of times and had already planned to put it on my 100 Things to do in 2015 list, but why wait until 2015? It turned out to be a pretty great choice, delicious, relatively cheap, and apparently the Food Network loves it. Now that’s preemptively checked off!
Later that evening I headed out to a drive in in Poughkeepsie, NY. Only about an hour and a half north of NYC, it was a perfect summer night for a drive in, and being a Monday we had it all to ourselves. Who says city folks can’t appreciate wilderness or enjoy a drive in? I have no idea the last time I went to one, but I will not wait so long before going back to the Overlook. Two movies for $6? SOLD.
Today, I miraculously had the evening off from work, which worked out perfectly! It meant I was not only able to visit and become super jealous of my little brother’s new place on the LES but also stop by the Modcloth #fashiontruth event. Have I mentioned how much I love Modcloth? I think all of my major apparel purchases from the last 3 years have been from them and I was so excited to partake in the festivities and get more involved in the Modcloth community. I think they are based primarily in PA, so here’s hoping they do some more fun stuff in NYC and this isn’t the last of it! While it was fun sharing my “fashion truth” while I had on sparkly shoes and tops and how I wear something shiny everyday, I had a big smile on my face as I held up my sign which read “You Sparkle from the Inside Out.”
