Mini Girl's Weekend

It's amazing how quickly a girl's weekend can recharge the batteries. :)

On Saturday we took advantage of a beautiful Spring day and hit the Union Square market, Strolled around Central Park and hit Magnolia's for cupcakes. Then we caught Aaron's gig. The bar was a bit on the light side as far as patrons go, but then again, can you blame them? Who would want to be crammed into a bar when the night is warm and beautiful, unless they know the band. :)

Yesterday was great. The girls and I got breakfast at an area diner before they took off then Aaron and I went to the Mets game. He's the die-hard Mets fan and hadn't gotten the chance to see the stadium yet. He cheered every day he passed by Shea and saw more of the demolition work (he thought Shea was a dump). The new stadium (Citi Field) looks a lot like the old Ebbets field, even with a huge rotunda entrance. The other plus to the design is that because it's open you get a great breeze blowing through, which is very nice on a hot, hot day. I'm not so sure how that'll feel in the fall, but if they keep playing the way they did yesterday against the Nationals, they shouldn't have much to worry about.

This coming weekend, We'll be checking out my team's new stadium. I never had a problem with the old stadium. It was grimy and felt just the way a baseball stadium should feel but I am excited to see what they've done. I've only seen the outside and it is very pretty. I am expecting it to be a lot more grandiose. I can't imagine the Steinbrenner's doing something understated.

Sounds like it was a good weekend. I think everyone has been enjoying the beautiful weather the last few days.

A walk in the park and cupcakes...doesn't really get any better than that!
