as i was going into a bodega(a corner's a new york thing) to buy nate a peanut
butter snickers, as a gift for valentines day(i know, a million days ago). guess time flies when you're having fun (or working all the time, or both!) someone hollered "hey blondie you lookin' like marlyn monroe! ....& i like your boots!"
it made me laugh, because, it was actually my first day wearing my new boots & also, i wasn't sure if she was complimenting me or threatening me (intonation of her voice)
oh life.

nate said he was going to buy me flowers,
but instead bought me a leather jacket....he's a strange one.

i tried this jacket on when it first came out, and took it off immediately (b/c I loved it.) & hung it back up.
i would have never guessed i would own this super awesome jacket.
it's too cold to wear it alone, but i still wear it underneath my coat, and then wear it indoors all day. obviously excited for spring.
we had a couple spring days last week, i think it was in the 40s-50s & everyone in our neighborhood decided to spend the day outside. (thus, the comment)

on sunday nate suggested we take the ferry to staten island  (linked for those of you who are like i was, and have no idea where that's located exactly), so we did. it was an aimless adventure, mostly to ride the ferry & also b/c it's free! once we got to the island, we didn't really know what one does in staten island, so after looking at a map, we decided to hit up 'silver lake park' ! (lol, missing LA much?) 

nate attempted to walk on the ice, after a couple steps it started crackling so he didn't continue. every time i watch this little clip i lol. i don't know why, maybe b/c you can witness the exact moment he notices the ice crackling. 
ps. sorry about the wind sound
alright buddy ol pals. i am drifting off here & better go to bed, before i fall asleep on the sofa, and then forgetaboutit!

& of course here are my strange boys, doing what they do best.


  1. ok, so this is coming out of nowhere, but i've been following your blog for quite a while now without ever commenting...

    it's been interesting to get to know you through the photos you post. my request is that you fill us all in with more insight as to who you are as a person. we get it, you're beautiful and so is your rocker husband and your two hairless cats (ok, truth be told they actually kinda creep me out) but underneath all of the new york glitz & glamor there seems to be a hidden sadness. are you ok? it's just, when i see you sitting on that fire escape (picture #1) it's like you're screaming out "I'M AMAZING, BUT I GET SAD SOMETIMES TOO!" (typing in caps is how you yell on the internet) we see you in all of these designer clothes and high fashion but then again, if you're life is full of luxury then why did you have to take a free ferry ride to see the statue of liberty? couldn't you have done the helicopter option? or even the statue boat tour for 20 bucks? something just doesn't add up.

    what i'm trying to say is...if you ever need someone to talk to...i'm a real person on the internet and i wanna be there for you. did you hear that? I WANNA BE THERE FOR YOU!

  2. no more snow!
