Katy's weekend in review

My weekend in review:

Yeah, that just about sums it up. I made mud pie.

My college room mate, Kaitlyn, was visiting from Rochester. For some reason, Nikki and I associate her visits with massive over-eating. Usually lots of italian food and cupcakes and candy and just overall binging, which is interesting since we (okay, I) dictate it and Kaitlyn never really asks to eat all of these things. I just feel compelled, as a host, to feed her with all of the deliciousness that can be found in NYC.

This weekend was no exception, although we've definitely had worse.

Started off Saturday morning with brunch at a local Brooklyn Italian restaurant. Oh, I'm sorry, unlimited Mimosas with my brunch? Well, alright! 6 Mimosas and Eggs Florentine later, it's pouring out and we're trying to get home when we realize we need Eva to make us some zucchini bread if we're going to be sitting inside watching movies all day.

Get to the grocery store- we decided we also need to make chocolate-pumpkin muffins, chocolate chip cookies, vanilla-pumpkin pudding, and mud pie. We check ourselves into fatty rehab and settle on just the mud pie and zucchini bread.

So the rest of our day is spent in front of the TV (Sunshine Cleaning was a good movie until the end, and then it annoyed me. Like most movies do.) eating eating eating. For dinner, the girls went and got some more Italian food, for me that included pizza w/artichokes, mushrooms, peppers and other veggies, and a bit of spaghetti and a meatball.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Thank god this isn't Atkins.

Yesterday was our annual Fall Festival where we go pick apples/pumpkins/pastries. The day included eating 3 apples in the orchard, a gyro from the food court (from an Asian woman. They don't know how to make gyros and it was awful but of course I still ate it), an apple cider donut, and some apple cider. Went back to Kirsten's for girl talk and mud pie and buffalo wing chips. Brilliant.

No dinner. Also no exercise, save for my hiking through the orchard.

And a new week begins...

  1. Hi Katy,
    I am Bobby's friend Liz and your stalker... hope its not weird or anything.

    I'm commenting because this weekend I too reunited with some ladies I went to college with. We wore sweatpants, watched cliche chick flicks, and ate tons of junk food--- more specifically buffalo chicken pizza, peanut butter M&Ms, peanut M&Ms, jelly rings, and hershey's kisses.

    I do not feel bad about the decision to eat the above mentioned junk because it seemed like a normal female ritual. Why is that? Why do you think that when we(females) get together it seems to involve bingeing on junk? And is it a bad thing? Hmm maybe its not a gender thing at all maybe men get together eat too many Oreos while talking about their feelings...but i think not.

    Food for thought,
