Cyclones and Princesses

IMG_0115_Layers_v1

We ventured out to Coney Island a couple weeks ago with friends to attend our first Brooklyn Cyclones baseball game.  I have to admit, a majority of the draw (aside from the lovely company) was the fact that it was Disney Princess night complete with fireworks to Disney tunes!  I am a sucker for anything Disney, so this event was right up my alley.  We had a lot of fun enjoying the game, the views, and the bright lights.

We’ve been hunkered down in the city waiting for our little boy’s arrival and getting some things done around the house.  We hung out at Rockaway Beach on Saturday which was a gorgeous, relaxing day complete with arepas at Caracas…my favorite!  We also met up with my sorority Grand Little who was in town from Boston for an amazing pizza dinner at Grimaldi’s.  It was my first time there, and I will definitely be returning!  Sunday, we completed a small DIY project at the house that we’ve been wanting to do for a while and created some fun artwork to hang up in the garden.

Hope you all had a great weekend, and wishing everyone a Happy Monday!

End of Summer

Ok, so I know I promised I would move on to the fall season, but I wanted to share some of the last moments of summer that we spent in the Big Apple.  These photos are from a visit from one of my best friends and her husband (who also happens to be a great friend as well!)  They drove up from Maryland, my original home state.  We explored our neighborhood (Ditmas Park) in Brooklyn, Prospect Park and the beaches of Queens.  It was such a fun weekend, that I couldn’t pass up on sharing these photos.  Hope you enjoy!

Yes, these are WILD parrots in Brooklyn! Insane!
