NY, i love you...

I'm going, I'm going!
i don't ever get to do much traveling.
never really have.
it's a shame really that i'd go BACK to the same place instead of try something new, but i read in a book somewhere that living isn't all about checking places off your list... its about really living in the places you are.
 so, I'm taking that as... even if NYC is the only place i ever really go.. i'm gonna discover all it has.
 I've been to NYC a few times, but I'm more excited about this trip than any other.
One reason being i'm visiting one of my bestest friends there, and i've never been while she's lived there.
Another reason is it will NOT (unless some freak of nature) be snowing/freezing while im there!
I've only ever been in December.. for christmas, and new years. (which are fabulous)
But there is so much you can't do, or would rather not do.. when you are frozen... and dodging snowflakes. This time I'll be going early October, so maybe even fall like???? (a girl can dream)

All that being said, I've been preparing a list of sorts.. of things to do, places to eat, movies to watch (before i go) and i need your input.

Tell me where to eat, shop, take pictures, drink coffee, grab a beer, see good art, do stuff for free..
I dont go for another month or so.. but i like to be prepared.
so let me know. there is so much i need to discover...

Music Monday: Purity Ring

Newest obsession..
 Purity Ring.

Cameron Strang from tweeted "Do yourself a favor and get the new Purity Ring album. It's like if Metric, The xx, Kye Kye and James Blake had a musical baby. Phenomenal."

I knew i'd be in love.
and i was. 
cool beats, sweet melodic voices, i can't get enough 
their pandora station is also filled with goodness!
hope you enjoy

looking for newness in the oldness...

My mom was in town for the weekend.  
It was really good to spend some time just hanging out.
We took her on our Sunday tradition of brunch + antiquing.. it was so fun and a good successful trip!
One thing i decided im obsessed with on this little trip is tiny chairs!
so many retro tot-sized chairs in different sizes and colors.. so cute.
Lets just say if i had a niece or nephew, or my own babe... i wouldn't have bought anything i did.. i would've bought all of those tiny chairs. :)
I'm already desperate for a Sunday again.
I've been working my butt off..  6 days a week the last few months.. and its catching up on me.
my legs are in a permanent state of pain. 
but so much to do so little time!
enjoy the rest of your week.
see you on the other side!
