// it's been the rainiest this week, but at least it's warming up! dreary mornings when it's wet outside but warm and cozy inside are kind of my favorite. huck is up at 8AM on the nose. his goofy face in mine first thing in the morning makes for the perfect alarm clock.
// i make the bed first or else my day is a complete disaster. while i'm in there i finally hang our wooden instagram prints that instathis were so kind to send to us. we love them! they'd been sitting on our dresser for three weeks because putting holes in walls makes me nervous, because it always takes me three tries to get it right, because i almost never measure (and when i do measure somehow it turns out even worse . . . numbers and i don't get along).
// maybe i like them better here? i make a vow to pray about it. ;)
// play dough is our jam these days
// time to refill the salt and pepper shakers. straight up GLAMOUR the life of a home maker ;).
// this is what huck is up to while i clean the kitchen.
// the rain stops so i text my friend nicole. nicole is my go-to lunch friend, and she tells me she needs an escort to a sample sale in the flatiron after we grab some crepes. duh, nicole.
// abc carpet + home is the best. after a few half-off candles (sample sales are THE BONKERSEST), we wheel up to abc, a place that will always remind me of my mother (we've been coming here together to drool on things since i was 11), so nicole can show me this chair. she and tony are thinking of buying it, she says with a straight face. we can't find it at first so we wind through all six floors (trying on vintage riding caps that strangely aren't for sale? ;) till we hunt it down. she plays it totally cool, like "oh, it's just this chair, for the living room . . . i want your opinion." and then there it is, this purple spinning plastic . . . thing. it's called an MGS chair, and it is really sort of scary and hysterical. i have never giggled so quietly and yet so hard in my entire life. screeching quiet giggles. then nicole says, "hey want some hot chocolate?" and i'm like . . . nicole you are my favorite, have i mentioned?
// by the way, the chocolate donut at balthazar?
// the east side of soho is rather cute. the moma store across from balthazar is rather dangerous (muji!). and the pizza we grab for dinner is rather gross. it's time to head home.
// this dude in a prom dress on columbus avenue?
hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
IT'S MARCH! WE MADE IT!

i wrote these just now, i think you'll like them:
LASH SERUMS VS FALSE LASHES VS LASH EXTENSIONS
the definitive post of the century (just kidding)
(huck is no longer writing his toddler blog.
he's gotten so big and is talking so much, already his story is no longer mine to tell.)
