Brunette ambition: weekend dates & hopeful to-do's

Dear readers,

TGIF!  Oh, and to all of you stoners out there, my most sincere wishes for a laughter and munchie-filled "420."

Since the entirety of last weekend's 48 precious hours was spent either a) partying like an unemployed 22 year old, or b) sleeping, I plan to take it easy tomorrow and Sunday.  Very easy.  All that I have penciled in is:

  • Tomorrow:  receipt of my Fresh Direct order.  First grocery order since January!  Sad, right?  Currently, the contents of my "bachelor's" fridge include ketchup, 2 eggs, and some beer. 
  • Tomorrow night:  dinner in Brooklyn.  This is where I'll probably give in and imbibe.
  • Tomorrow and Sunday:  a couple of exercise classes
  • Sunday:  "doggie play date" with Karl Lagerfeld (the puppy that I'm babysitting while his lucky Mommy is in the Turks & Caicos), Carol, and her pooch, Biscuit. 

Karl Lagerfeld, the teacup Pomeranian: Now, be serious, have you *ever* seen a cuter dog? Now, if I'm feeling extra ambitious and/or guilty that I wasted every daylight hour of last weekend on sleep, here are some chores that I'd like to accomplish:

  • Clean out the entirety of my very overpriced storage unit.  
  • Respond to emails and update the sites that I manage.
  • Return phone calls even though I LOATHE talking on the phone.
  • Figure out what the heck I'm going to wear to Tuesday night's Toast to the Children event.  Help!  I have a coral-hued dress in mind, but what color of shoes do you wear?  Purse?  Normally, I'm an all-black kind of gal, so wearing this bold shade will be quite a new endeavor.  Advice?
  • Cook, cook, cook!  The contents of my Fresh Direct order contain ingredients to make the following:

Too ambitious, maybe?  Perhaps.  Perhaps not.  I'll let you know what all I accomplish - especially if it involves whipping up some/all of the above recipes!

What do you have on deck for Saturday and Sunday? 


Until we eat again,

The Lunch Belle

Well - read my post today, and you'll see what my weekend will be filled with. Although - can I come over and visit the doggie?? And you, of course!
