I also got this cute bag from Heather over at barelymeasured! She generously sent me this as a gift for guest posting on her blog earlier this month. Check out her awesome blog, her Etsy shop, or my guest post here! Thanks again Heather!
Mike and I ended the week with a day trip to New York City to enjoy Central Park and see comedian Louis C.K. at the comedy club Caroline's. Pretty much an awesome experience whether you're a big comedy fan or not - and the proceeds went to his daughters' school so we were laughing for a good cause and Louie is hilarious. He makes these very keen observations about society and how angry and self-righteous we are, usually at his own expense. One of my favorite bits of his is about how he was riding on an airplane with wi-fi and the guy sitting next to him got all angry when the internet wasn't working, even though it's pretty miraculous that he is sitting in a plane flying through the sky, let alone able to access the internet. And it turns out... that guy was actually Louie himself. He's sort of this anti-consumerism, real-life comedian which I appreciate a lot.
Anyway I didn't take as many photos in New York as I had hoped but I definitely captured this: our trip to a donut shop called Holey Cream where they hand-dip donuts and also serve ice cream, allowing customers to make donut ice cream sandwiches. What a decadent idea! Mike and I opted for donuts with Nutella icing and Reese's cups and peanut butter chips on top - definitely a good call on both our parts.
I also have to make a plug for one of my favorite bloggers, Erica Lee Sears of A Tiny Rocket. Erica is a self-taught artist planning her own residency in Hong Kong this spring in the hopes of ultimately producing a coffee table book/iPad collection of her work. She is an extremely talented and ambitious woman and needs just a little financial support to make her dreams come true. See her work here and learn more/donate here.
