Weekend Wrap-Up


Forecast, schmorcast.  The weather was great on Saturday, so Laurent and I hopped out of bed early-ish with the hopes of gettings scones and tea at Alice's Tea Cup, but there was a two hour wait.  Next time we'll make reservations... 

Instead we found a cute little coffee shop, Cafe Noi, and strolled down the Upper East Side until we hit Grand Central (that's 51 blocks!)  I was in dire need of an active day after being cooped up in our apartment throughout the rainy week and in dire need of a beautiful bag...  I scored this one at Urban Outfitters with Laurent's discount and it's got me pretty pumped for spring.  For those wondering, employees at Urban Outfitters get to give their family members and one significant other (that's me!) an employee discount card, which is good at Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People, Terrain, and BHLDN.  Pretty great, huh?

We took a long subway ride out to the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, which is described by the National Park Service as a "sanctuary for wild birds and other native species".  Neither of us could identify a single bird, but it was great to just be in a quiet setting for a little while.

Speaking of taking a little trip... we're heading back to Indiana on Wednesday to see our families!  I can't wait to be back in my hometown for a little relaxation, board games, and family time.  Will you be in Indianapolis or Bloomington this week?
