Ring in 2018 with a Cheese Board!

December 31st, 2017 is the Second Annual Stay Home and Drink and Eat All Day New Years’ Eve Extravaganza (Our first last year was equally fun) . I love, love, love staying in on New Year’s Eve now. It’s something that I look forward to! Long gone are the $150-open bar tickets for five hours at Capitale only to step out past midnight into the cold, heels aching, to the sobering lack of transportation options. No more crowding around a bar for 20 minutes, being forced to resort to double/triple/quadruple-fisting glasses of cocktails. And no more standing around in a glittery, sparkly number in heels for 5 hours to wake up with sore, achy feet. No more to all of that! My friend Chrissy has been doing this for years with her husband and she’s quite an expert on New Year’s Eve celebrations at home. Brian and I are new to this and honestly, I’m sad that it took us this long to realize the genius of it.

I ate and drank to my heart’s content, garbed in a onesie, in the comfort of my own home while watching movies on Amazon while snuggled up to my corgi pup, Queen Elizabeth. It was amazinggggg! Brian and I also used a lot of our wedding presents: plates, glasses, & silverware. Sadly, we still don’t have a working oven/stove because of the gas leak in our apartment building so I purchased an Instant Pot to make pasta. The best part? We still have leftovers!

Fun City

A couple of weeks ago,

on a random Tuesday,

Brian and I decided to apply for our marriage license.

We entered City Hall –

I, happily dressed in a vintage sequin number

and he, in a jacket and jeans.

Graffiti & Miss Paradis

I love Freeman Alley – there's usually a good amount of work by SacSix and it's always neon bright. I did find that Chris Uphues' hearts in one corner got covered up though – sad that it's a natural part of graffiti; it's ever changing. Which is why I love walking around the city and finding new ones! Capped it off with some late lunch and prosecco at Miss Paradis – a bright and cheery spot designed by Philippe Starck!

Urban Art Fair

Photos from the Urban Art Fair – especially fun since there was a double book signing featuring Lori Zimmer & Luna Parks, authors of “The Art of Spray Paint” and “(UN)SANCTIONED” as well as some of my faves: Logan Hicks, Joe Iurato, Crash, & Nick Walker. Also, Brian and I bought a Shepard Fairey print! All in all, a great day (despite the crippling humidity). Click for more photos!
