happy friday friends! today is a truly awesome friday because I'm off from work! 4 day weekend! we have tons of fun stuff planned for the long weekend ahead and i'll be instagramming lots as we begin saying buh-bye to summer. Meanwhile, here's the weekly wrap up!
It was crazy, crazy hot up in here all week long. summer is nowhere near being over if you ask me! it was well into the 90s, which meant a whole lotta sweating going on each morning on the way to work. my favorite.
In the evenings, we tried to get outside as much as possible when it wasn't oppressively hot. We enjoyed caprese salad on the terrace on a couple of evenings. Penelope is hilariously obsessed with tomato, cheese + 'sauce' (aka balsamic glaze). Tiny foodie right there.
P's daycare also started school this week and so new uniforms commenced. She actually really loved wearing this thing, and I have to say, she looks pretty cute.
A new favorite morning activity...stopping to watch the trains come in on the way to school. I love city life.
We went to sleep pretty early each night which was a welcome development. Last night, Shaun went to the US Open, so I had the place to myself after Penelope fell asleep. I discovered that Scandal season 4 is now on Netflix, so I got a healthy binge going there and can't wait to sneak in more today during P's nap time!
That's about it from here this week. I hope you have a truly awesome, fun, and safe weekend ahead! See ya next week!
