it’s been almost a month since i popped in over here. just busy livin’ life! so let’s see, where to begin…
the kiddo. (because let’s be honest, she runs sh*t around here) at 14.5 months, she will hold entirely incoherent conversations with you, just babbling away and looking you straight in the eye like how can you NOT understand what she’s trying to say. it’s adorable. she does say a few intelligible words (dad, cookie, ick, down, hi) and it’s fun to watch her learn to communicate.
the house hunt. it’s happening, the inevitable move out to the burbs. since we sold our condo last june, we’ve been undecided on our next step - going back and forth between continuing to rent in the city and just taking the plunge and buying a house in the burbs, and it seems we have finally decided to take that plunge! we found a lil’ fixer in a neighborhood we love and if all goes according to plan, we will close in early june. we’re over-the-moon excited but also sad to be leaving the city - and most of all our friends! bittersweet, it is.
the holidays. jason and i hosted our first passover seder dinner last monday evening and it was a rousing success! 10 friends, 7 bottles of wine, 1 brisket and not a piece of leavened bread in sight. it was truly a great night, with great friends. yesterday we had a quiet evening at my mom’s, and of course the easter bunny couldn’t leave our little chickie out of all the fun - Annabelle went nuts for the Anna babydoll (Frozen is a big hit in our house) she found in her easter basket.
are you dying over her shoes? i can’t hardly handle the cuteness.
been a while, eh?
every year, my favorite ladies and i get together for an annual girls weekend. we choose a different city (typically chicago, nyc, boston or DC) and gather for a few days of food, wine and girl talk.
last year we delayed the weekend which usually happens over presidents day because i had just given birth (no big deal) but we still made it happen during the summer.
this year we’re back on track and that means girls weekend beings TOMORROW in new york city! this is our 7th annual - we haven’t missed a year yet.
i feel equal parts excited-anxious. excited because, girls weekend obviously. but this is my first time overnight away from the munchkin.
she’ll be fine, of course. she’ll be with her grandmas and her dad. maybe i’m the one who won’t be fine? the girls have promised to distract me with adult beverages and i am 100% on board with that plan.
now if only the weather will cooperate…
