Love Affair Links

Confession. I’m having an affair with New York. (Don’t tell Peter!). We go through rough patches sometimes … like Winter, or when I slip on ice, or when cabs splash me with slushy puddle water … but we always manage to get through it. And by Spring, I fall in love all over again. Today was one of those perfect days with my man, and my man-hattan: brunch, spring weather, fresh blooms, and a late sunset. Felt good to get off the couch and explore again. But that also means I’m writing this post at 10 pm instead of 2 pm, SO enjoy reading this on Monday morning!

  • Attention all you House of Cards, Scandal, PLL, Game of Thrones , [insert your favorite guilty pleasure here] fans. There are rules to binge-watching. Abide by them.
  • Also, I love this hilarious commentary on the 24 types of food snobs out there. Which one are you?
  • Mark my words, the minute I get back from vacation I am making these samoa donuts. #GirlScoutCookiesOnSteroids
  • Has anyone else started their spring cleaning? I probably ditched 50% of my wardrobe by using this ‘keep or toss’ approach. Plus Peter piped in with his fair share of “yea, that can go…”s.
  • Still struggling to find room for all my shoes though … but here’s one great solution.

That’s all for now. Have a great week everyone!

    Pretty picture and great links! Especially the rules for binge watching (even if I am off to catch a few episodes of House of Cards right now).

    Oh my gosh, I love the food snobs! I will have to share that one. I’m definitely The Substituter but the Annie Leibovitz cracked me up!

    I just stumbled on your blog, and I’m in love! I’ve got some major jealousy going on that you live in New York City. I’m obsessed with New York, and I’d love to live there someday, but for now I’ll just have a long-distance love affair with the city. And I’ll be following your blog for sure. :)
