I spent another fat week in NY and NJ! I arrived on 5/1 and made it to Brooklyn and saw this cutie:
Met a friend for a delicious babaganoush lunch:
Back to Brooklyn where I killed some time waiting for my sister getting a pretty sweet deal on a mani/pedi--$16! I don't usually get these but my feet were still wrecked from the Mud Run and it was a fun and relaxing way to kill an hour.
I recommend Sister's if you're ever in Park Slope looking for a mani/pedi:
Enjoyed a great Mexican dinner with my sister in Park Slope (BIL ironically in SoCal for work):
Drove that night to Jersey and spent some quality time with Mom and taking her to some doctors' appointments over the next few days. I managed to squeeze in an awesome Korean lunch with a friend--highlight of my Jersey visits!
I shared my manicure which I felt so self-conscious of because I'm not used to my nails being colored. I feel like nail polish make my hands look older or that I should be offering an innocent princess a poison apple.
Over the weekend I made my nephew some vegan and gluten-free banana pancakes (from BabyCakes Covers the Classics):
He ate them!
I got to take him to the park and we toodled around his new Brooklyn nabe:
On Monday, I got to spend a day with him when his usual caretaker had a doctor's appointment. We checked out a different playground in Prospect Park. Lots of nannies and kiddos.
Then we strolled to Starbucks. Lots of moms and kiddos.
I gave him a bath:
And put him in some adorable pajamas (actually all pajamas are adorable at this age!)
And finished off the trip with a visit and trying out their cookie butter:
So delicious--I ate a third of the jar in 5 minutes. It reminded me of Biscoff spread:
And then back on to home--until next month!
