Happy Friday!

{our favorite spring indulgence: loaded hot dogs from boulevard drinks in jersey city}


It's the most glorious weather today in New York and I'm looking forward to welcoming a wonderful weekend with open arms. We'll be celebrating Mother's Day with both of our moms on Sunday and meeting friends for brunch tomorrow. Hopefully we will have some outside time and I also have some less-than-ambitious mom's day crafting on the docket for Penelope and I to do tomorrow (for her grandmas). Tonight, I'm hoping for a mini Shameless marathon as we still haven't finished the last 3 episodes and if I get some solo time, I have 2 more episodes of The Jinx that I simply cannot wait to watch.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend celebrating the moms in your life. Wishing the happiest day to all the Moms out there, whether with us or not, the moms-to-be, the moms who want to be, and the moms who are all doing their very best every single day. Sending so much love to you all!
