How was your weekend (and your Monday for that matter)? My Monday night was fabulous — why? It included the RHONJ reunion and vino. See, easy to please.
Actually the whole weekend was pretty darn good. Thursday evening I made some ginger shortbread cookies with maple frosting and, well, they were sort of blah in my opinion (Zach’s too). Then, oddly enough, they started to taste better after each passing day. They are very reminscent of those sugar cookies with the huge layer of frosting you can get at the grocery store/Target. I decided to hang on to the recipe and play around with it.
My mommy friends tested them on our Friday meet up and enjoyed them though. We met up at a cute park in Los Altos and watched the babies crawl in the grass and throw crackers around. And we may have “snuck” some wine in as well — hey there were no signs telling us *not* too.
Saturday I hit up Spin class despite the fac that my lower back was and is screaming at me (I blame the guy below).
But Saturday night was truly fab. We had a date night with some friends we haven’t seen in quite some time and were able to indulge in several glass of vino, cheeses, dinner, and froyo at the end. We dined at Gravity in Palo Alto followed by Fraiche. A good time indeed. And I was able to wear my new Frye boots. More simple pleasures.
Speaking of old friends, we also had a lovely coffee date on Sunday morning with our LA friends who were in town for a college reunion. It’s making me desparately want to take a trip down south and visit all of them!
Oh and my new green jeans? Love them. Total random purchase on Saturday, but they were a good deal and I’m pretty pleased with them.
Given all that and the start of some cooler weather, I’m quite pleased
Tell me how you’re easy to please. Other things for me include: pedis, pumpkin spice lattes, smelling a seasonal candle, going for a walk with bean and noodle, cuddling with the cats, dinner out….
