DOLLA GOODIES


I adore my latest purchases not only because they're all so stinkin cute, but because they were all under 3 bucks! At Target and Michael's, they have little dollar corners. For Target it's called "Spot the One" (i think) and for Michaels it's called "Dollar Deals". These corners are the epitome of impulse buys. But who cares! They're cute and useful and cheap and cute. I'm so glad for these cheap cute things. Thank you for whoever invented little dollar isles/corners, they're the bomb! They make me happy. 

"Just a Few Thoughts" journal- $3 Michaels 
Yellow frame- $2 Michaels 
White embossed pot (my ring/watch holder)- $1.50 Michaels 
Mailbox- $1 Target 
Gold wrap-around journal- $1 Target 


SNOWED



We made a snowman! Like a legit one too. With all its perfect curviness in tact.

I HAVE A THING FOR MUSEUMS



^^i can't not feel the warm and fuzzies when i see this picture of us, makes me happy^^


I've grown a fascination for museums. Maybe it's the artist inside me, but there is something rejuvenating about them. This time around we went to the Brooklyn Museum. I didn't even know Brooklyn had a museum that was so legit. I mean, it contained the Book of The Dead for crying out loud! I think I embarrassed myself a little for being excited about this book, especially after explaining what the book was to one of my best friend who goes to Cornell. 

The museum wasn't as busy as the others that I've been to before. It was a little empty, but the Egyptian artifacts were by far the coolest things ever. Daniel and I got to touch the tomb of the mummies, ssshhh. 

The forecast for that night was expecting a blizzard, so we (as in us floridians) were more than excited about the snow. We had gotten home early from the museum to buy some of the very best pizza's, Lenny's & Johns, and some cannolis from Palermos. This is another tradition we do as well. Usually we'd have family dinners, where we'd cook and or bake a dessert, but the cold gets the best of us sometimes. We do always have cannolis though. It's actually the only time I have cannolis throughout the year is when we're all together, having a movie night or just chatting or playing music or just simply enjoying everyones company. 

Again, good food and good people. Also it's so sweet to have started and witness this "tradition" when Seth was just a tiny immobile bundle of joy to now a little handsome rascal who dances to any song that comes on and who's favorite word is "NO". 

I love moments like that. Not doing much but movie nights and eating food with my favorite people around. I live for days like that. 



   



NYC, YOU HAVE SOME CHARM





Oh New York, you're doing it again. Why are you so beautiful? I don't care if it's cloudy, or quiet, or dirty. There are different parts where you just have to stop and admire the uniqueness of good old New York. 

New Years Day we celebrated it at the city. We were tourists, only because Joshua's never been to NY, so we stopped by the main attractions. Times Square. Oh Times Square. I adore you sometimes, but other times your fake Elmos and Spidermans creep the heck out of me. I couldn't help but fall in love with the Dalmatians that were for show and tell at Times Square. My reaction (high pitched baby/mommy voice) towards them had the guy pull me into getting a picture with them, which was totally fine with me cause I got close to them lol I anted them babies. I'm always telling Daniel after seeing a beautiful dog, "Can we have that type of dog?" or "Okay, I want Milo and a Golden Retriever so he has a friend, and maybe a Great Dane too". We probably have 20 future dogs together at this point. We ate at Dallas BBQ's, again another thing we always do. 

And then walked to Bryant Park mainly for the scrumptious popcorn that I haven't had in almost 3 years. Kaps (a nickname we give eachother, her name is Kristine however) and I swear we kept smelling it randomly. As we got there, they had just pulled the zamboni to clean the ice, so it was perfect picture moment. Also Daniel and I shared a cute little slow dance to Michael Buble's "All  I Want For Christmas" and I was just like "YESSS!" on the inside. Like shug avery on vine. YES. I'm so glad to share these little things with Daniel, considering we barely see eachother. Especially how after all this time, these little moments still feel like greater than the world to me.

We never found our popcorn... 

We then walked over to Grand Central Station. And my gosh, that building is all kinds of galore. I've been there once or twice before, but it still feels like new. It's beautiful. And that's that.
