I am so glad its Friday! Lilah is going through a major sleep regression, no naps and a few 3 am wake-ups, so I’m ready to take it easy this weekend and have Aaron around for an extra set of helping hands. What are your plans this weekend?
Edie and I are going to this awesome event at the Children’s Museum of the Arts with our friend Nicki.
And I’m really hoping to head uptown fast enough to get a good viewing spot of Manhattanhenge.
Is it Friday yet? Just kidding, but after long busy week with a cranky teething baby I am ready for the weekend. On the bright side, I had a great birthday yesterday. I woke up to everyone in party hats singing “Happy Birthday” and a very sweet surprise from my favorite jewelry store, Catbird. Plus, a girlfriend took me out for doughnuts – the day couldn’t have been any better. Here are few pictures from the trusty iPhone of this past week:
Edie’s preschool was closed last Friday so I decided to take the girls to see the new Whitney museum. The weather was perfect so we grabbed a bite to eat at their outdoor café and spent a good amount of our time playing on the colorful chairs on the 5th floor garden. The new location is great because you’re close to so many other sights. While we waited in line (I suggest buying tickets the night before) Amanda took the kids to play on the Highline and afterwards we grabbed a few treats at Chelsea Market. I can’t wait to go back! Here are a few pictures of our day:
My friend Amanda and her two boys tagged along with us for awhile.
The views here are amazing!
We sat staring at this light installation for a good 20 minutes!
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend! I feel like we didn’t have a moment to stop and catch our breath but thats one of the things I love most about this city, there is always a new adventure to be had, new memories to be made. We spent Memorial Day walking all over Central Park – stopping at playgrounds, the boathouse and the Alice in Wonderland statue.
We started the morning with brunch at Bubby’s. The great thing about Memorial Day is that all the locals leave and go to the beach and the city feels empty. Normally there is at least an hour wait for a decent brunch place but we got a table for 5 right away! Everyone raves about the pancakes here but the biscuits take the cake, in my opinion!
And they have a Photo Booth in the basement! Edie stuck her tongue out for every picture 🙂
Lilah is always on the move and toddling around! She is so brave, taking every opportunity to climb and explore. I love this stage so much.
Underneath the large mushroom is a bronze crocodile. Edie refused to leave its side. She named him “Loco” (I have no clue where she gets this stuff from) and said it was her pet. I had to promise to bring her back again soon to get her to leave.
Walking around New York on this beautiful day it was hard not to think about the men and women who served this country and how it has afforded us the freedom we enjoy each day. We thank you.
Whew! The long weekend is here! Tomorrow, a friend and I are going to the check out the new Whitney Museum and maybe grab a bite to eat at Chelsea Market afterwards. And then Saturday I am finally getting a much needed haircut. I’m so nervous to cut my hair (I have only cut it maybe 3 or 4 times since Edie was born!) but after a particularly hot afternoon last weekend I know it has to be done.
Here are a few things that caught my eye this week:
I just bought these jeans and they could be my new favorite thing I own.
This 3 hour tour by Jordan made me really miss our old city.
It’s my birthday next week and I’m hoping to go here for a day date (wink wink Aaron).
Speaking of my birthday, we have plans to take the girls to DUMBO because they always have a good time riding the carrousel. Plus, I want to see this exhibit that my friend Nicki just went to with Joanna (found via Cup of Jo).
It feels like everyone’s suddenly talking about podcasts, and not just Serial. So I gave this one a listen. Any other recommendations?
Hope you all enjoy your long holiday weekend. See you Tuesday 🙂
