Where have I been?

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!

I've had 2 manicures. Both times I found myself distracted by my own hands... not practical!
When are you heading back? Where in Brooklyn do A, A, and J live? I am determined to hook up :)
