Hello one and probably, just the one... It's January. Actually, now it's February! January lived up to its reputation and felt like a loooooong month.
Let me think on the highlights:
Rang in the new year with my hubby, a terrible dinner at Mamma Shitoria and an off beat flick called 'The Loneliest Planet'. The trailer made it look insane but while it was beautiful, it was a little anticlimactic.
I used taking down the Christmas decorations as my catalyst to revamping the apt. New curtains, a cool record player stand, some rearranging, various DIY, an emotionally obtained craigslist bench, new art, new desk for Tom, and goooooodbye elliptical! The only sad part about losing the elliptical is T's make-believe microphone is now gone.
We saw Purity Ring at Webster Hall. To say it was an AMAZING show would be an understatement. It was actually T's bday present to me. The opener, Young Magic totally blew us away, and I picked up their album on the way out. (After chatting with & girl-crushing on their female vocalist).
The next night we celebrated a buddies bday at his place and had a blast. It was a pretty kickbutt weeknd.
Other highlights of the month included a yummy bday dinner out for T with my in-laws at Que Pasta, a LOVELY girls night with a million mini-donuts and avacado blt's at my sisters, a totally indulgent night at Bistro 55 with a gal-pal, a jaunt to New Brunswick for a tat-touchup on the coldest night in history (where we hit up Brother Jimmy's BBQ [if you go, get the 'swamp juice'!]) and last but not least, hosted an awesome Old Skool 33rd bday party at home for T. A good time was had by all.
Well, when I sum it up like that, its been an awesome month! I also think it needs to be said that this month boasted more beautiful sunrises and sunsets than ever!!!!
And, for visual proof that I'm still kickin it....
***Note the scarf variety! This is huge.
