our date night this week looked a little different than usual, with the majority of it spent at a parent/teacher night at eleanor’s school. the funny part about that though, is that josh and i had been looking forward to the night at the school for a few weeks now. haha! we are such dorks sometimes. but it was a great evening together, and it just solidified our excitement for this coming year and the future. we had plans to head downtown afterwards, but i was starving since we raced straight from the kids’ fencing lesson to dropping them off with our sitter so we could make it to the school on time. so afterwards, we decided to take a detour for pizza at motorino which just opened a new location on the upper west side! we got caught in a long conversation which carried us through a long walk around the neighborhood afterwards and we ended up never making it downtown. josh davis, you’re my favorite person to talk with.
we didn’t take too many photos during our night out, but below are the few we did take!
this dress is one of my favorites, but since it’s a little too short for me, i usually wear it tucked into a long skirt or else with pants. i don’t care if that’s weird. watch me do. (does meghan trainor get anyone else through their circuits at the gym? she’s my favorite to listen to when i’m working out on my own.)
that single strand of ivy went down the entire brownstone into that cute garden and it needed to be documented.
pink lips and bow ties. ps– i’ve been wearing this lipstick in mauve matte as my daily go-to the past few months since i think maybelline might have discontinued my usual go-to shade i’ve worn over the past several years (you can still find it online, but harder to come by and i haven’t seen it in stores in ages.) but this one is close in color and also a great matte. i love it just as much.
so so thrilled to have motorino on the upper west side! we LOVED the meatballs for our starter. don’t skip those if you go! also, please don’t mind the graininess of these photos since it was so dark in the restaurant and i had to bump up the iso on our camera like crazy since we don’t use a flash. it is what it is, which is grainy. i know. :/
did something i don’t normally do and had the sweet sausage and brussels sprouts on my pizza. delicious! this crust is the best i’ve had in the city and it reminded me so much of my beloved 2amy’s in washington DC.
and there you have it, a bit of our date night right here! have a great weekend, you guys!
