weekend wanderings

today i'm linking up with whispering sweet nothings to bring you:
after our marathon travel month (ohio for a wedding, DC for the color run, mexico to visit far away friends, and philly to visit not-as-far-away friends), this weekend was supposed to be our relax-and-put-our-heads-back-on-straight weekend.
fate had other plans!
a friend from high school has an interview in NYC early next week, and asked to stay at our place! our apartment is an easy meeting point for this particular group of friends, so our doors-are-always-open policy with our friends said "come 1, come all!" and told us to switch from "you're about to relax" mode to "get ready to party!" mode. 
so that's what we've been up to this week... cleaning, stocking the fridge with food and booze, researching fun events in NYC, corralling local friends to come out with us, eating healthy and working out because we know we're going to eat and drink a LOT this weekend, etc., etc.
so far, we've only got saturday plans: go to sage in williamsburg, brooklyn, for delicious thai food and drinks, then head back to jersey city for oktoberfest at zeppelin hall beer garden .
i have to stop talking about it, because i get so excited!
we will be setting a new record of overnight guests this weekend, with FIVE extra people! which means there will be SEVEN sleeping in a 400-SF 1 bedroom apartment.
...and we're going to love every second of it!
what are YOU up to this weekend?!

Sounds like a good time to me! Dan and I are taking our 6 yr old nephew to worlds of fun (an amusement park) all day Sat and then he's spending the weekend with us.

We. Are. Nuts. ;)
