My boys

I know I always say we are busy, but this weekend was really crazy…and for us to say it’s crazy is something.  Friday, I ran into a friend who was moving the very next day (by chance on the subway!) and ended up getting to say goodbye to her at her apartment, went to meet Jay (who had been celebrating his last day of work!) and then stayed out way too late with friends.

Saturday we went to Smorgasburg, a bbq with friends, and Postal Service at Barclay’s. It may sound silly, but having things that both Jay and I were loving long before we loved each other (like PS) makes me so happy!

 Sunday I went home to celebrate my other main man, Dad!  We had a yummy brunch, family walk, relaxed in the house, and went to the fruit stand.  Dad, love you, you know this.  (see ridiculous cat pet below)

IMG_0201When I got home Sunday night, we decided to go to see a late show of Superman.  Yes, I’m tired today, but it was worth it!  Nothing like a summer superhero blockbuster!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Gov Ball

This weekend was Governors Ball!  We had a great time seeing amazing performances all weekend…we did have to do it covered in mud, dirt, rain, and more mud, but it was fantastic!  We are suffering trying to stay awake at work today!  We got to see so many of our favorites (yeasayer, bloc party, kanye (!), lumineers, alt-j…so many others).  A great way to spend a weekend with friends and family.  N & S, so happy you came out and stayed.  S you are a trooper!

Here are a few fun ones from the muck…

Last night we went to see Frightened Rabbit at Terminal 5.  T5 may be the worst venue ever (or maybe I’m just too short), but the show was fantastic!  Also, we got to go with my brother and his gf and some friends which was so fun.  Loved having them in the city for the night!

Now another weekend of mania.  Big plans ahead!

Subway Stranger

This morning I was running a little bit late to work (shock!).  When I got up the steps to catch my train there was a long line and of course, my train was pulling up and I was going to miss it…but then, the guy 4 people in front of me goes “are you all this train, here go ahead, I get the J” and let us go ahead of him so we could make the train.  I just made it!  I don’t know who this subway stranger was but he made my day.  Thank you for restoring my faith in NYC stranger!

Last night we had a great time at Dr. Dog and Delta Spirit.  Central Park is maybe my favorite place to see shows at this point…

Our delicious dinner at John’s…

And of course a pic of the babe yesterday…I mean, could he be more adorable?!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Officially NY

Well, it’s official, I am a resident of NY.  Goodbye NJ license (hopefully not forever).  Even though I have been here for years now (don’t tell NY please), I just now got around to switching over since it’s about to be voting time.

This made me think of all the great, and horrible, times driving in NJ…amazing summers with friends, rides to the beach, great adventure, cruising around town, taking my dog everywhere with me…and of course the bad experiences driving which I will not mention…they were bad…real bad.

Either way, I am now part of NY for good.  And though it can make me feel a little…

I have a wonderful life in NYC (graffiti by my apt).

For example, last night we saw Yeasayer (one of my favs) in Central Park…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today I had the most amazing pizza ever…

And of course, most importantly, I come home to these guys which makes NYC actually feel like home…
