Happy MDW! Weekend Links & A Few Sale Favorites

May 24, 2019

Happy Memorial Day Weekend and pretty much the official start of summer! We're staying in Brooklyn, but have a pretty busy weekend planned. Tomorrow, we're heading to Connecticut for a 1st birthday BBQ. On Sunday, we're taking a pizza class and on Sunday, we're going to head to Sai's, who recently moved into the most incredible apartment, for a Memorial Day bash. I may not be able to partake in all of the fun summery cocktails, but I'll definitely be whipping up (and eating) a few things.

Dresses with Sneakers and a huge Thank you!!!

Hi! I cannot thank you all enough for your thoughtful, encouraging and kind messages regarding our announcement and all of my fears and concerns. Having such an incredible community is so special; all of a sudden, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted. After reading through all of your messages, I realize how normal all of these feelings and emotions are, but in the end, it will all be okay. Now, rather than nerves and anxiety being the main focus, excitement has taken the lead.


AH! I’m pregnant and my real thoughts and fears on going from 1-2.

Well, the cats finally out of the bag! It feels good to not have to hide anymore and even more so, to finally feel better! The first trimester was rough. Like really, really rough.

Happy weekend! There's something about May that I love so much. It's like September - the weather is not too hot, not too cool and everyone seems to be in a great mood. We plan on doing some work on our backyard to get it back into shape from the winter (plant shopping, hosing down the grime, etc). Other than that, just some relaxing and of course, the Game of Thrones Finale! What do you all think of this season so far? I'm a little disappointed, but I'm hoping they somewhat redeem themselves with the finale.

Where to Buy Plants in NYC + NJ

May 15, 2019

As often as possible, I try to share my favorite spots in the NYC area. From my favorite hotels to the best pizza to the most child friendly dining spots. Today, comes a highly requested one: where to buy plants in NYC! However, I also added three NJ locations, one of which my friends swore by. Sometimes, it's worth it to make the trip for a larger variety and most likely, better prices. 


An Update: My 19 for 2019

May 13, 2019

Back in January, I made a 19 for 2019 list. Typically, as many of us do, I'll make a list and a few months (or even weeks) down the line, I'll forget about it. This year, I vowed to check in with myself, at least two times, before the year ended.

With that being said, below is reminder of my list and where I stand with it. As soon as I started reading it and realizing just how many things I have yet to do, I started to feel a little guilty. Then I realized, that's not the point of this exercise. If anything, it just serves as a refresher!
