Life through a lens

Standard

Since I’ve been on a blogging hiatus, the best way to catch y’all up on what’s been going on is with pictures…four weeks worth of pictures [mostly in instagram] to be exact.

“Pictures tell a story that words can’t always express.”

Week One:

  • Discovered a new restaurant in NYC – Brother Jimmy’s BBQ. Everything about it reminded me of the south from the food, paraphernalia and music. I LOVED this place.

It doesn’t get much better than that! I recommend the pulled chicken. delish.

  • Volunteered for a service project with work where we painted the cafeteria of the NYC Lab School with Publicolor.

I’m in the blue shirt cutting away at the corners. The cafeteria ended up being 3 different colors.

  • Spent an afternoon shopping and eating at a street fair in Chelsea. [not pictured, the earrings, necklace and kettle corn I bought.]

Fresh Thai Food! Makes me wish I was abroad.

Fried Oreos! AMAZING 🙂

Flowers for sale. Makes me wish I had a balcony filled with pots of flowers!

  • Walked around Union Square Park and East Village.

 

Occupy Wall Street has become Occupy Union Square.

  • Ate at Crepes on Columbus. #bestCREPES

Dark Chocolate, Strawberry and Banana Crepe. It doesn’t get more decadent than that.

Week Two:

  •  Celebrated Cinco de Mayo with Margaritas at Caliente Cab.

Pricey but, potent. One of the best marg spots I’ve been to in the city.

  • Went to a Johnnie Walker tasting. [too bad I don’t like whiskey.]

Black Label backdrop – andy warhol style.

  • Walked around Herald Square and Times Square like a total tourist.

T-Rex in Toys-r-Us. Most ridiculous store ever.

Week Three:

  • Bought myself a planner, like a high schooler. Only 5 months into the new year, but better late than never.

  • Bought three shirts and a blazer (not pictured) at H&M

  • Made a surprise visit home to Houston for Mother’s Day!

  • Snuggled with my little pig, Sophie!

Isn’t she the cutest? It’s always so hard to leave that face.

Week Four:

  • Registered for the Houston Marathon on January 13, 2013.

  • Walked around Union Square Park and saw the Occupy Protesters as well as part of a San Simone Parade.

Hilarious.

Some of the dancers from the Parade.

  • Accidentally stumbled upon a Ukrainian Festival in East Village.

Love the Nesting Dolls! The top left one is exactly like one that my parents have!

  • Went to the Central Park Zoo and walked through the Gardens!

One of the three Sea Lions!

Central Park Gardens.

Also during this time, I saw The Avengers, The Five Year Engagement, found a new apartment, had a work event that included good food, drinks and karaoke and did a burger/craft beer outing with iadventures for burger month!

Hopefully now you are all caught up on my life as of late.
