We got SNOW! It has been so cold but we haven't had any snow yet this year. Quite a switch from last year. So when I woke up Saturday morning to the sound of metal scraping concrete, I smiled. Alec, my building guy was shoveling snow! Early! It was barely light out but I knew what it was. So Saturday was spent curled up in the Rabbit Hole with a stack of magazines and vanilla tea in my cup. Mmmmmm, Happy me.
I love a good cupcake. I mean come on. It's like a sweet little treat in a hand sized package. It makes a case for celebrating something every day! Cake=celebration. Am I right? I am not above sticking a candle in a cupcake either just to make it more official. I am particularly fond of the usual suspects here in the city, Magnolia Bakery, Billy's cupcakes and while I know it's a chain, Sprinkles makes a good cupcake. Now that they have one in the city, I am back on the "super secret free cupcake list."You know of this right? NO? Oh my get in the know! You like Sprinkles on Facebook and they send you a secret password every day for a free cupcake! Who doesn't like a FREE celebration in a bag! Since my friend Holly is in town, we hit Sprinkles on Lex and sauntered up and gave the "People's Choice" secret handshake and were handed a bag that held a peanut butter cupcake with toasted marshmallow frosting! Thank you very much! NO I will not be doing this regularly but definitely when I am in need of a reminder to celebrate life!
I took a jaunt out to the BK for an exhibit at the Museum on art of the American 20's called Youth & Beauty. While I was not "allowed" to take pics in that exhibit there were other photo worthy opps while I made my way there. Again with the tree thing. See what I mean.
If you look closely you can see the image, Me AND the Tree.
Bummed this piano was used in an art piece, I really want one in my apartment.
My birthday of course! Well it may not be Your best day ever but it sure is mine every year. :) Although I was solo this year I spent the day doing what I love to do in the city that I love living in. Who could ask for more? I went to my FAVorite store, Henri Bendel, to browse and shop and generally hang out. (I should probably apply for employment for crying out loud) Then I walked around the city and made my way to the Times Square Visitor Center. It's a gorgeous building (which I am a SUCKER for) with all kinds of fun things to do inside. Now let me preface this with, Times Square is not my favorite place in the city, BUT they have the New Year's Eve Ball on display and I really wanted to check it out. I even got to take pics with it. Besides it's huge and sparkly, what's not to love?
