So, I went to a Soul Cycle class today in the West Village to participate in the amazing Anandah Carter’s last community ride before she takes the podium as an instructor. It was incredible. And then when I walked out of class and the sun was shining I decided to walk home instead of heading underground on the subway. I know I am slightly crazy but you all do know how much I LOVE walking in this city and I was already sweaty ;) On my way back uptown I decided to walk along the Highline, because well, why not? So for today’s blog I am going to share some pics that I took while strolling (I had no choice the tourists were out in droves!) the Highline. Hope you enjoy them. And Congrats Anandah!!! Happy Wednesday everyone!!

Packing for camp. We drive the girls to New Hampshire on Saturday and although I have had the packing “done in my head” for weeks, I actually had to get to it today. Laundry was done, piles were made and labels were attached to everything except socks, I draw the line at socks!! As of Sunday, Ron and I will be childless for four whole weeks. I will miss the girls terribly but they need to get out of the stinking hot city, away from each other (even if it is only a cabin away) and they need to run around in the great outdoors. And well, Ron and I could use some “us” time. So, back to packing I go… the toiletries await ;) Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

The girls leave for camp in a little over a week. It has been nice to have them home, enjoying a no schedule, relaxing start to the summer. It is starting to get hot in the city and this is when it becomes a bit challenging to find activities that do not involve baking in the concrete jungle. So far we have been exploring new playgrounds (with water features), riding our bikes, epic board game battles, play dates, movies and today chilling out with a good book in the a/c. I am also keeping a close eye on the suggestions from my good friend Babette who just started a Camp Mom NYC Blog… be sure to check it out if you are looking for fun activities to do in NYC with kids whether you are a local or a tourist!
Here a few of my favorite pics from the last few days, hope you enjoy them. I will miss the little monkeys when they are gone, but I am also looking forward to spending some time on some grown-up NYC adventures too! ;) Happy Wednesday- stay cool my friends, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!!

It is that time of year- the end of another school year. Time seems to be flying by faster and faster. Today was the last full day of the 2013-2014 academic year for the girls- third and sixth grade. Crazy. So, today I will simply say that they keep making us incredibly proud with their many achievements and that we are pretty darn lucky, girl drama and all!!! ;) Happy Summer my friends!!!
The end of the school year is fast approaching and with it is a whirlwind of activities at both girls schools. Although I complain about barely being able to keep all the dates of the numerous parties and performances straight, I have to admit I do love seeing their achievements. They are both incredibly lucky to go to wonderful public schools that challenge them academically and creatively. So awesome to see what they have been working on. So, today I am just taking a few minutes to post a couple of pics to recognize my little monkeys and another fantastic school year. Way to go ladies!!! Happy Wednesday everyone. Summer is right around the corner :)

Today is National Running Day so even though I was feeling a little sluggish, I laced up the sneakers met up with some of my favorite running gals and headed to Central Park. I am incredibly fortunate to call Central Park my training ground. Its beauty in all the seasons is stunning. The views NEVER get old and I promise to never take the fact that I can run here for granted. Today, I will share some pics with you that I took during our running route. We ran at a very leisurely pace on this hot and humid day, we allotted time for pictures, water breaks and even headed over to the New York Road Runners Club to pick up our National Running Day bibs and bandanas. It was perfect. I feel so very fortunate to be able to run with a group of fabulous women on one of the best running courses in the world. I run to be healthy, strong, fierce, the beast mom, for my sanity, to spend time with my friends, for coffee time afterwards and of course, for cupcakes ;) Happy Wednesday everyone and Happy Running!!!

We had a great Memorial Day weekend in the City. Ron has been working crazy hours and the kids and I are busy with end of year activities and beginning of summer planning. So, what our family needed was just a weekend where we had absolutely no plans at all. It was perfect. We explored the Lower East Side, had a cupcake at our favorite spot in the city- Sugar Sweet Sunshine Bakery, checked out the treats in Economy Candy, visited street fairs, played at playgrounds that were outside of our normal ‘hood, saw the sights, had family movie and game night, finally ate at Bar BACON (beyond fantastic!!) and even managed to squeeze in a viewing of X-Men: Days of Future Past. A GREAT family weekend. I am including some of my favorite pics. Hope you enjoy them, have a very HAPPY Wednesday and a wonderful week =)
