i kept meaning to sit down and blog last week but time just gets away from me these days. i don’t know how people do it! i honestly need like 5 more hours in my day. and another 8 dedicated just to sleep. who wants to get on that? one thing being a mama of two has most definitely taught me, is that when my house is quiet and sleeping, i should be sleeping too. sometimes that’s hard to do when it’s often my only time to myself, but sometimes i’m smart and listen to my sleepy brain and usually when i do this, i feel better. even if it means my house is scary looking and everything is gravitating towards the back burner.
anyway, here are a few moments from our week. all from my iphone.
some words about that top photo…. i couldn’t find a decently priced dance class for eleanor in the area. (oh new york city, why are your extra curricular activities so darn expensive?!) so i decided to teach her and a few of her little friends myself this semester. a friend of mine with a large apartment kindly offered up her living room one afternoon each week and another friend kindly offered to watch samson during class time and now we’ve got 2 classes going back to back with six little ones in each! putting that old juilliard bachelor of fine arts degree to good use and having a lot of fun doing it.^^^
^^^these cute faces are my family and i don’t think i’m biased but maybe i am… they are the cutest faces i know. i like kissing all of them. ^^^
^^^bath time. also known as splash time. i’m always soaking wet afterwards and i’m not even in the tub!^^^
^^^the ladies from sonnet james flew to the city this week so we could work on shooting their spring line! i was so flattered to be a part of it because these dresses are hitting it out of the park, they are so great. i’m never changing out of that hot pink one come spring, i tell you.^^^
^^^thursday night i met some girlfriends for dinner and dessert in soho. it was great to catch up with everyone sans babies (sometimes forming a sentence can be hard when your kids are running opposite directions at the same time.) and hello rice to riches, you are still my fave. oh, that photo on the right is from saturday morning. it doesn’t have much to do with thursday night girls night, but anyway….)
^^^we stopped by steinway hall on thursday to see our friends, the 5 browns, rehearse and tour the old historic building with them. eleanor enjoyed practicing piano with them! they were sweet to let her play. josh and i went to their concert at carnegie hall on friday and were so blown away. they are some of the kindest and most down to earth people we know. they deserve all the success that comes their way. congratulations, friends!^^^
^^^on saturday morning, josh and i had a little letterpress date at regas studio! the owners are old friends of josh’s (they all went to the same high school) so it’s been fun to get to know them a bit and hear all the high school stories! we also had a lot of fun learning all about their letterpress and trying our hand at it. more on that later!^^^
^^^and banksy stopped by our neighborhood on saturday night so we were sure to hunt down and check out his newest work on our way home from church on sunday! we also started watching a documentary he directed last night which is just fascinating so far. hopefully someday when we aren’t sleepy we can finish it. ;) ^^^
