Do you ever feel like there are just not enough hours in the day!? Ever since we got back from Italy I’ve been on hyper speed. I simply cannot find the time to actually blog and post as much as I want to. That whole j o b thing gets in the way, am I right!?

I have drafts started of additional Italy photos so those will come in good time 🙂

SO LATELY what.is.up…

I had a work event all last week in Brooklyn – Wednesday night the dinner and awards ceremony was at Liberty Warehouse in Brooklyn with the most stunning sunset.

My mother in law & sister in law found this old book of Richard’s with a note written by his late father of his first time reading a book. So sweet & special. This makes my heart so happy. A reminder to never to take time with family for granted.

Sunday we met up with my brother in law and his girlfriend in the city for stickball. We were only planning on stopping by but it was SO FUN and SO New York 🙂 They have a stickball tournament two times every Summer.

Peter McManus bar hosts it and all donations go to the NY Fire Dept. You pay $10 {suggested donation} for all you can drink Coors light + food = my heaven. You set up a team by writing your name in chalk and play stickball on a closed off street all day long. It was so Hey Arnold and I loved every minute.

For my birthday we had happy hour cocktails at The Grey Lady & dinner at Extra Virgin. Loved sitting street side in the West Village for a delicious al fresco meal 🙂

AND Tuesday night we had an amazing surprise from our friends who gave us Aladdin tickets they had gotten from co-workers. We used it as an opportunity to take Richard’s brother to Rosemary’s for a belated bday dinner on us before the show! The genie was spectacular!! Such an amazing show. Gotta love Disney 🙂

Oh and I leave today after work for my best friend and cousin’s wedding in Long Boat Key and am SO EXCITED!

I’ve not been able to spend enough time with my cousins this year so I feel giddy at the prospect of seeing sweet Beazy {please consider donating to Cincinnati Children’s as Bea’s 1 year liver transplant approaches on 7/7 HERE!} & her adorable cousin Patrick for a few days on the beach. I also can’t wait to wear this Lilly two piece outfit to the bridesmaids luncheon at the Ritz on Saturday & this romper at some point!

Follow along on Instagram!!! Cheers to the bride & groom’s special weekend 🙂
