St. Patty’s Weekend

on March 21, 2013

I’m late, but I’m finally posting! My weekend turned out to be pretty fun despite the freezing weather and my tired self. On Friday I pretty much fell asleep at 10 pm right after talking to my best friend. She needs to move here with me! 

On Saturday I started bright and early with a chilly run along the river. I had plans to meet up with friends at 10:30 am, so I wanted to make sure I would be ready in time. I quickly ate breakfast, showered, and made a trip to the bank before meeting up with them. We were headed to a St. Patty’s Day party in Murray Hill, so we took the Path then grabbed a cab once we got to Manhattan. It was pouring snow btw! On freaking St. Patrick’s weekend, this weather is crazy! I still like the snow, though. Anyway, the party was a lot of fun since I got to meet some really nice people. Since people started scattering in the afternoon with other plans I decided to run some errands and head on home. I went through the market (in pouring snow) and made a stop at Trader Joe’s for some cereal, hummus, and other goodies. I relaxed at home, then went back to the guys’ apartment later that night thinking we would go out. Turns out everyone was tired from the day’s festivities, so I ended up chilling there and eventually making my way back to my place. 


On Sunday I once again started out with a run, but I’m pretty sure I did something bad to my knee. Intense popping is not a good thing to feel when you’re in the middle of a good run. I had to limp/walk/hop home, but I’m hoping it will be better by next week. After breakfast I went on a major cleaning spree and completed some errands. I found my new favorite Hoboken grocery store- Shoprite! It’s so new, beautiful, and cheap (something that’s very rare near the city)! Overall, fun times!
