Foliage Filled Weekend


Happy Friday, darlings! TGIF big time this week! I don't know if's just me but for some reason this week has felt painfully long. Might be because I've kind of had a bit of a bug for a few days but I've been forging ahead and not giving in to being sick. And that's exactly what I intend to do this weekend. No being stuck indoors for days for me. I've got big plans!

Dreaming of leisurely strolls in the city, perhaps hitting up the green market or some other fun fall activity that I'm bound to find. Oh how I just love autumn in NYC.

Also I'd love to take a little drive out of the city to check out some of the foliage. I don't want to miss it this year so I'll drive as far as I can until I find some :)

Finally I am looking forward to a sneaking in a little downtime. A few extra hours lounging around the apartment is always good for the soul. And I've gotta get some rest in there somewhere, I guess.

What do you all have planned this weekend?

I always wanted to go to NYC in Autumn... we went in November once, a bit late and it poured the whole time! Glad you are feeling better. No college tours on the agenda so I think I will make some home cooked meals and catch a movie. xo

Ah Dawn, your weekend sounds so dreamy, i am so incredibly jealous!! Fall is so amazing, my favorite season by far... and kind of a religion here for us canadians hehe fall foliage is part of the scenery for us but we never tire of it! I've also caught a little bug so i know exactly how you feel :(

I've actually got my university graduation ceremony tomorrow, so that's pretty much what i've got planned for the weekend, other than working... For me, sunday is the best day of the week! ;)

Have fun!!! How i wish i was in nyc!

Yes I caught some kind of bug after the wedding too but I am hoping to shake it off so I can enjoy the weekend. We are going to check out a local art exhibit and just enjoy the fall weather and quality time together. I might have to sneak in a bit of shopping too. Have a wonderful weekend!!
