Happy Friday darlings! I am extra excited today, I have a visitor coming all the way from Germany to visit me this afternoon. Not just for an afternoon visit, but for 5 days! Actually she will be here for about 10 days but she will be here for work the last half of her trip. I'm not going to name her because I think a lot of people don't know she is coming and I want to see some reactions when I post a pic of us later! I kept very busy it seems this week, as you will see below, but the weather has been absolutely fabulous... so deserved after the crap winter and spring we had. Everyone enjoy your weekend! A Very happy Mother's Day to the moms out there and especially to my one and only amazing mom who has proved to me for the millionth time this week that she is the strongest woman on the planet. I love you!
2. Yes, my birthday was in March, but years ago when I signed up as a Sephora member, the person who did it entered the date in as 5/3 instead of 3/5. So at the start of the month I got an email telling me to stop in for my free birthday gift. When I stopped and got it I was so excited! Nars is pretty much my favorite lipstick brand, and these aren't just little samples! They are also 2 colors that i would totally buy on my own.
3. Tuesday was one of my favorite holidays, Cinco de Mayo and even though the day had been really stressful and hard, we thought we should go out for some Mexican and a Margarita. Getting out made me feel a bit better, and we went to a place that we had wanted to try for ages, Taqueria in Jersey City. The place was of course packed, as it is one of the most popular Mexican places in NJ. We got some burritos, Flautas and a couple tacos and they really hit the spot. The Margarita was crazy strong, but I needed it!
4. On Monday Nicole and I went for a long walk in Central Park to get out and enjoy the lovely weather. I also needed a few more pictures for my Spring in Central Park blog (coming soon!) It was fantastic as usual and I love that every time I go I see new things and learn so much.
5. On Sunday, Josh and I along with the Marston's went to Citifield in Queens for the Mets vs. Nationals afternoon game. We love afternoon games and the day could not have been better. I also got these incredible Steak Frites with cheese form Pat La Frieda. Wow! Check out my blog about the whole weekend!
