It’s Friday, Friday. Gotta get down on Friday … remember that song? I never fail to get it stuck in my head every single Friday. I guess there could be worse things!
The beginning of the snowstorm.
My husband and I did a little exploring this week. We walked around the Sunnyside neighborhood in Queens, ate some delicious pizza, and then came home and checked out rent prices on Craigslist (do you ever do that?). Of course, it was much cheaper than our current rent, but we’re not moving anytime soon! We also checked out Arthur Avenue in the Bronx (it was a three borough weekend!). Again, we ate some really delicious pizza and to-die-for pastries. Yum!
There was also a big snowstorm this week, and I’ve been holed up ever since. I’m hoping it warms up a little this weekend, so I can get out and do something fun. It’s freezing out there.
Here are a few ideas that I liked this week:
