Live with Kelly and Michael

Hubs and I got tickets to Live! with Kelly and Michael last week. I was super jazzed. Except that we had to wake up at the break of dawn to get in line. The studio isn’t far from our place so I had time to grab myself a large and in charge cup of coffee.…

Hipster for a Day

Last week, over whiskey, a friend of ours came up with an awesome idea. Host a hipster party. Genius. It all went down last Friday and it was as epic as it sounds.   The decorations were awesome.   Our friend Joe and Husband posing with a picture of a hipster that strongly resembles one…

Sorry I’ve been MIA. My babiest brother (who is now taller than me) and Dad came to visit. Lil Bro had a blast exploring this city. That’s pretty much the theme of this Insta Friday post.   We went to a Yankees game. It was weird. Highlights include: 4 teenage girls got in a screaming…

Insta Friday: Daily Show Edition

Insta Friday

This week was bonkers. My BIL and his buddy came to visit for 2 days. We smooshed as much NY as we could into 48 hours. I forgot how tiring it is to be a tourist in this city! So without further ado, what I did this week according to my phone pics. Hubs and…

Brooklyn Flea

Now that Hubs is home for good (hooray), we are spending a lot of time doing ‘New York’ things. Things we know we’ll miss when we leave. Brooklyn Flea is one of our favorite NY things. Generally, I go for the food and to drool at the furniture. Now that I know we are going…

My 4th of July

My 4th started out kinda crappy. First, Hubs called and was like “j/k I won’t make it home today.” Bugger. It was a small chance but I, of course, got my hopes up. Second, our hot water went out in my building. Cut to me washing my hair under the sink (with freezing cold water)…
