Alison’s Birthday!

IMG_2688

Alison, Sarah, and I have been planning days out for each other’s Birthdays. This was Alison’s day out: we went to the Guggenheim, ate lunch at a diner, had a quick break (Alison napped and we waited in line for rush tickets to a show), ate dinner at a delish hibachi restaurant, and went to see Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Then we capped it all off with a glass of wine at Glass House Tavern. What a lovely day!

I curled my hair for the Barry Manilow opening night. Too bad it was cancelled. I’m still too cool for school. (This is an expression. Stay in school, kids.)

IMG_2696

I cleaned out the Blue Man box office where I worked. Cleaning is a favorite activity of mine. Because I’m the coolest. Obviously.

Then Barry Manilow opening night actually happened.

…at the Copa, Copa Cabana.
That was original. Also, No idea what the inspiration for our expressions was.

More selfies. And yoga. I did yoga. Then I stopped because I got bored but it was fun for a while.

National Pancake Day. Appropriate celebrations.

IMG_2753

It snowed….

Tara and I went out and about in Soho in search of vintage wedding dresses. We didn’t find much but it was fun. And we did stumble across some love bombs.

IMG_2793

I experimented with wearing a lot of jewelry at once. And I liked it.

My goddaughter (yes it’s Tara’s cat, and yes I’m serious) Miu (aka Ofelia) turned 8 so we threw her a little party. See? I’m definitely cooler than you.

Cocoa attended wearing her finest party dress.

IMG_2863

Cocoa also got all of her toys out while I watched one of the Twilight movies. Obviously she’s a werewolf and her toys are vampires. I raised her well.

IMG_2867

Grace church on Broadway. I used to walk by it all the time when I would walk from Union Square to Blue Man and finally got a chance to go inside.

IMG_2866

And one of their members was on the Titanic. You know Titanic is my historical thing so I dorked out a bit.

IMG_2896

Some more wedding dress shopping.

My mom and aunt came into town. First things first, we hit up Pomme Frites for some delicious fries:)

We took a peak at the Freedom Tower’s progress.

IMG_2904

We saw this guy on Broadway.

And we ate nom-a-licious doughnuts at Doughnut Plant.

IMG_2913

It snowed. Again.

IMG_2921

I bought this skirt and then saw Breakfast at Tiffany’s while wearing it. It just seemed like an appropriate combo.

IMG_2928

We finally had some sunny days so Cocoa and I took advantage of the hammock.

Documenting a good hair day. Because when you’re approaching Spring and it still feels like the middle of Winter you take the small victories.

IMG_2938

This is where Cocoa hides when I cook. Apparently my domestic streak makes her nervous. Or my cooking. Or something’s really wrong with my stove.

IMG_2943

My co-worker brought in some delish treats from Veniero’s to celebrate/mourn my last couple days at work. Update: I quit because I got a new job. Still working for Blue Man but now I’m full time at the corporate office:)

IMG_2952

My pink Easter bunny. It’s a good thing Cocoa loves me.

IMG_2955

Celebrating Tara’s Birthday after my first full day on the new job. I felt so grown up/like a real person.

IMG_2967

My friend Kendra is really into Japanese culture so naturally, some girls went to her place and we dressed up like Geishas.

IMG_2970

Geisha-tude

Sarah’s Birthday! We took her to lunch at Eataly, got manicures, went to the museum of sex, roamed around with coffee because we ended up with extra time, ate dinner at Hooters (we are the classiest), and did karaoke at one of those rent-a-room to sing in places. It’s great because you don’t have to hear other people sing badly. Only you and your friends.

IMG_2998

Tara and I tried out Martha’s Bakery in Astoria. Their iced mochas are banging’ and the eclairs are ridiculous. It’s going to be a problem. I could have worse problems though;)

IMG_3003

Self explanatory.

IMG_3009

Sunshine!

IMG_3018

I was trying to grow my bangs out, but I lost patience and just cut them off. I still mostly wear them to the side but their more manageable. They were at that awkward not quite long enough to pull back, not quite short enough to wear down phase.

IMG_3021

I color coded my wardrobe. I recommend it. Now I know what colors to avoid when shopping (black and blue) and what colors to pursue (pinks and reds).

IMG_3042

This face!

I took myself to the Met a couple weeks ago to see the Fashion & Impressionism exhibit. If you have a chance to go, I highly recommend it. It was very thorough and super interesting. I wasn’t allowed to take photos in the exhibit but here’s a selfie in one of the fancy wings.

IMG_3052

And after browsing the exhibit, stumbling across photography in the Civil War exhibit, I successfully got myself lost in the Met. Easy to do and kind of my goal. Stumbled across this, went in, ended up in the 360 degree Versailles room (another spot I highly recommend and it’s permanent), and finally found my way to the exit.

I hope you enjoyed! Next, I’ll update you on what I did the last 2 weekends and we can officially call it caught up! Let’s hope it stays that way. I’m gonna do my best!

I’m sure I did other things, like see shows I forgot to mention or whatever, but I just gave you the photo highlights of 2013 so far. Winter was crazy long but it finally ended/is ending:/ and I can see the light that is Summer. But having a Spring has been nice (when it’s not raining).

This weekend I’m off to SC for 40ish hours to go to my friend’s wedding (dear friends, stop growing up!), so I’m pretty excited about that!

Talk to you (blog at you?) soon! Happy Wednesday!!!
