This weekend was GREAT! So many things going on and I want to share all of them, so bear with me because this post will be long!
First of all my dad was in town from a business trip, and on his way back to Caracas he stopped by NY for a few days (the convenience of living in a place all planes seem to stop at, you get lots of visits!). He stayed at my sister’s because of course grandkids beat younger daughters any day of the week, but that was ok, I still got to see him a lot. We had lunch on Saturday at La Nacional, and enjoyed the kind service and great tapas. Then we were off to Union Sq, Wall St, and Times Sq, all places he had been to before, but in all of then there was some errand to run or a visit to be made, so we enjoyed our touristy roam through the city. On Sunday we met for brunch in my neck of the woods, at Yura, and had the most incredible French Toast ever! Highly recommend it!
Later we came over to my apartment and my LOVELY brother-in-law (who totally rocks!) helped me put up my new sconces!!! It was more me helping him, but the point is they are in use now, and as you can see the “modern” ones won!
On Friday night I went out with a very sweet, good looking, and funny guy. We had a great time at Cilantro, with delicious food and incredibly good Margaritas! The date was so good actually I saw him again Saturday night, we went for sushi and to see Reign Over Me (excellent acting, funny at times, a little slow, but over all a good movie to go see). This guy, J, is really great, I’ll let you guys in the know, if/when things develop.
On another family note, my nephew Nick designed his first blog! His teacher has mentioned he needs to work on his writing for school (he’s in 3rd grade) and I thought what better way to do so than through a blog? So please check it out so that his writing is encouraged.
