Scenes from the weekend.

After one of my most difficult weeks in teaching thus far in my career, I slept most of the day away on Saturday trying to emotionally recover. On Sunday morning Brian, Emily, and I ventured to Greenpoint for breakfast at Peter Pan, one of our favorite places in all of New York City! Their old fashioned donuts are so delicious. After breakfast we drove over to DevociĆ³n in Williamsburg for pour over coffees. I had admired the space on Instagram for months and it was even more beautiful in person! The leather couches, yellow accents, and plant wall created the perfect Sunday morning atmosphere. We took our coffees to go and continued our Brooklyn adventure in Bushwick. We followed a street art map created by the art teachers at my school and saw so many amazing pieces! Our evening concluded with Shake Shack and a performance on Bargemusic. We were inside the concert for most of the sunset, but I was able to run out at intermission to sneak a quick photo while the sky was still purple. How was your weekend?

Coney Island Adventure

Last weekend Brian, Emily, and I ventured to Coney Island for an afternoon at the aquarium. After we walked around the aquarium (which is currently getting a major makeover), we strolled along the boardwalk to Nathan's. No trip to Coney Island is complete without hotdogs and crinkle cut fries! We stopped at Gourmanoff in Brighton Beach for some Russian sweet treats after our late lunch. The apple pierogies were out of this world amazing! After trying the four we purchased I walked right back into the store and got several more to take home!

Scenes from the weekend.

My mom arrived on Friday for a quick weekend visit. The highlight of the weekend was the ballet on Friday night at Lincoln Center. We were in awe of Misty Copeland! We saw three pieces and all were absolutely beautiful. On Saturday we spent the day walking around Union Square and the West Village. We watched the kids' Halloween parade march around Washington Square Park before picking up our own Halloween treats at Sockerbit. That night we had dinner in Astoria at Seva, my new favorite Indian restaurant! The food and service were both phenomenal. On Sunday we had brunch at Queens Comfort before heading into Manhattan to cheer on the marathon runners at mile 25. We saw Stanley Biwott run by, who clocked in the best overall time at two hours ten minutes. We ended up standing on the sidelines for almost an hour clapping and screaming for the runners as they sped by. I absolutely love the marathon! While some are addicted to running them, I am addicting to watching and cheering at them! It is always one of my favorite fall weekends in New York City. How was your weekend?
