This weekend was a bit different for me. While I usually start Saturday with laundry and house cleaning, this Saturday I headed into the city for the NYC Blogger Playdate. If you know me, you know that I have no interest in trekking into the city on a weekend unless I have a race. Therefore I spend the first part of Saturday morning changing my mind as to whether I was go to go or not. Well, after my husband insisted that I go, I jumped on the express bus and headed to Five Points Academy on Canal Street. I was running late (weekend traffic is annoying) but made it just in time for the kettle bell workout. It was a great class with a great instructor. And the pain I am feeling in my quads and my arms tells me it was also an effective class.

After getting our sweat on, myself and several other NYC bloggers headed over to Patois for brunch. For $12.95, we each had our choice of great entrees (I had a steak sandwich), coffee and not one but two mimosas. WINNING!

The rest of Saturday was a blur since the little had me up at 4:30 a.m. and then well, the kettle bells AND the mimosas. Me and hubby put the kids to back early and woo hoo, we are sleeping by 9. It was awesome. We truly are party animals!
This morning I managed to fit in a quick, much needed manicure and then hubby and I took the kids to the park. We have to take advantage of this beautiful weather. Monday it could snow. (Gotta love global warming.)

Now, back to mom world. I have laundry to catch up on.
The next NYC Blogger Playdate is December 10.
