I don't have a lot this week, but I am a shitty sister... So there's that

First off, HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to sis and brother R! Their birthdays were 8/11 and 8/10 respectively. I brain farted and didn't post a shout out to them on the blog on their days, but I did update their FB pages and in the case of sis, talk to her to wish her a happy birthday. Love from your crappy sister...

This past week was pretty tame. I feel like Blondie and I crammed so much stuff into our weeks and weekends when we first moved here, that taking a well-deserved break from the more touristy activities is a relief right now.

Blondie took off on Monday to Arkansas for the week - his baby bro is in graduate school there, and Blondie went down to hang for a week before classes started up again. He had a great time - from hiking and camping, to eating Chick-fil-A, it was everything he wanted in his vacation.

I, on the other hand, did jack squat all week. I worked of course. There is always that. But other than that, nada. I came home every night, made some type of mexican food for dinner (with Blondie out of town, it was all Kerri in the kitchen, all the time), and then crashed in front of the T.V.

On Wednesday, I got fed up with my hair. I had the very long, very straight hippie do left over from living in San Francisco for too long - I was in the process of putting it up on Wednesday when it hit me - "why do I do this? Why do I keep it really long and then tie it off my face? Why not just cut it off?" So I did. I LOVE THE NEW HAIRCUT! OMG. It makes me look about 10 lbs lighter, and it's so much cooler than all that hair I had before.

My hairdresser thinks I should go blonde, but I have to think about that one for awhile. It's been a long long time since I was blonde, and I'm not sure I'm ready to do that again - so I pussed out on changing my hair color. But I'm ecstatic with the cut.

Blondie flew back on Friday and we spent yday afternoon crushing on each other and our city. We got in a good workout, and then enjoyed some us time - we headed up to our veggie and meat markets, and stopped at our local magazine stand for lottery tickets, and then headed out to lunch at our bar - we snagged a prime seat on the patio, enjoyed some (many) cheap beers, ate some good grub, and people watched the afternoon away.

After our lunch, we headed back to our building and went up to the top floor (45th). It was a perfect day outside, 83 degrees and sunny, and the view from up top was spectacular. We both just kept saying "OMG. We live here!" or "OMG! Did you ever imagine 20 years ago that you'd be living in NYC now?"

After our trip to the top, we came back down and enjoyed a few more beers on our patio, before I crashed for a little bit. We ordered in a sub (I ate an entire 12" meatball sub on my own) and some pizza slices for dinner, and called it an early night.

Due to my sub-fiasco last night, I just got back from 2 hours at the gym. I feel a lot better now than I did before the workout. Today, Blondie and I are talking about going up to visit "Pop Tart World" in Times Square - 3000 sq ft dedicated to the pop tart. We also have to run another errand in Times Square. But the weather has turned crappy - it's completely overcast out there now, so maybe we'll just watch TV all day. What a great day to do nothing!
