Mamma’s flight got cancelled last night (after boarding on the plane and sitting there for what seemed like an eternity!). Sigh… No complaints though – as it meant a extra snuggles time with the Nuke baby. These photos were taken yesterday afternoon. The sun finally emerged in Southwest Florida, and... Continue reading

As luck would have it… we managed to catch a carnival this weekend, the entire family in tow – yippee!!! We got to the preamble of the 2015 Naples Strawberry Festival just in time (FYI the carnival is all weekend this weekend, and the actual music/festivities will follow next weekend)!...

Happy Thursday! This mamma’s been one crazybusy bird and not following her own guidelines (which is to be timely with her featured posts). In fact, I was just remarking to my fellow blogger colleague Tineey, at Tuesday's Tabelog event, of how my writing simply cannot keep up with my life... Continue reading

This afternoon, hubs and I took a break from our conspicuous consumption spree in downtown Beacon and went art-scoping at the Dia: Beacon on the Hudson. This expansive modern museum, which occupies the 300,000 square feet that occupied the former Nabisco box printing factory, is truly quite an impressive sight... Continue reading

Hola and happy weekend! Hubs and I decided to go for a mini weekend escape from the city to Beacon, a quaint little Hudson Valley town just an hour and a half north of Manhattan – home to the famous Dia: Beacon Contemporary Art Museum (which we plan to check... Continue reading

Last night, hubs and I caught up with some good friends over delicious grubs at Annisa on 13 Barrow Street in the West Village. Being that we've been traveling so much lately and spending so much of our downtime in Florida, it was a nice treat to put some social... Continue reading

Happy Tuesday! We took advantage of yesterday’s President’s Day so that mommy and Nuke baby can get some extra quality snuggles time together in the sun. Besides finally being able to lounge around in my sundress (okay, I suppose I really shouldn't complain, given how bad the weather is in... Continue reading

Happy Valentine’s Day! Last V-day, we were in New Zealand, and this year – Glulfcoast Florida! Alas, hubs had to work, so he stayed behind in wintry NYC, and it was me and the Nuke doing Valentine’s day mommy and baby style!! These days, our little man is super duper... Continue reading

Greetings from Sunny Florida! Between you and me, I’m actually quite amazed that I managed to make it out of snowy Boston last night (it was really looking quite bleak at the airport). Nevertheless, we took off and landed in the land of palm trees, sunshine, and no-frills. Speaking of... Continue reading

Last night, I went back to my old Alma Mater to catch up with an old friend of mine (whose baby boy is just a year younger than Nuke baby!). Over dinner, my girlfriend, who’s a current professor at Harvard, told me that the university has literally shut down three... Continue reading

Last night, a group of my friends got together and went out for Hot Pot at nearby 99 Favor Taste on 285 Grand Street (yes, you got that right, favor, not flavor). If you haven’t tried hot pot (or the Japanese equivalent shabu shabu), then you simply must give it... Continue reading

This was taken in March of 2014... the weather was just starting to turn the corner, and I'm in full work-gear, cruising with Nuke Baby before heading to the office. He's in his 7am cover! I had lunch today with a good friend of mine who's expecting, and I couldn't... Continue reading

As many of you probably know, family-style dining is one of my favorite things to do (see some recent snippets on family-style Lebanese and Momofuku experiences). There is something so particularly communal, energetic, and atmospheric about the entire affair, which inevitably leaves me craving for more. Last weekend, before the... Continue reading

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! I am watching the game on a plane back to NYC as we speak (hubby would be so jealous!!), whilst being extra giddy over this fantastic weekend. I must say, we started the day on the right footing (munchkin napped for almost an hour and a... Continue reading

Digging the period colors and ensemble here. This also happens to be one of my favorite scenes from the film (right after they crack Enigma!!!) Benedict Cumberbatch, where have you been all my life?! You play nerd-sexy so well! This, btw, released today (how timely!) kind of made me love... Continue reading

Okay, so Snowmageddon didn’t quite live up to the hype. That said, there’s still plenty of snow on the ground (though really it’s business as usual back here in the big Apple). In the meantime, I’m kind of over this whole snow/cold.com business, and looking forward to my weekend away... Continue reading

Happy Saturday! So it’s been one hectic week, as usual – but this mamma is staying put in NYC for a change, while hubs flew down to Florida to be with the Nuke (miss them!!). Both work and other engagements precluded me from joining them, but in the meantime, I... Continue reading

You may have seen me mention this before, but ever since I’ve had a baby boy – this mamma stylist is very much into male fashion, and you know that I never mind a little tie action here and there for the little guy. Which brings me to the topic... Continue reading

One of the (many) perks of flying back and forth between NYC and Southwest Florida is that I get to (still) enjoy some one-on-one time with friends during the work-week, and satisfy my tummy cravings. Case in point – last week I got to catch up with a fellow mommy... Continue reading

This afternoon I took the little Nuke out for an artsy-inspired outing. We’ve been cooped up indoors for far too much of this long weekend – largely because mamma’s been busy on her laptop and conference calls for the better part of her time here. However, with the weather so... Continue reading

One thing that I do love doing is visiting the local farmer's market of places I go to... See recent post in the Catskills. There's nothing better than visiting the Farmer's market in flip flops and nice weather.... It's just not the same in the winter time. One of my... Continue reading
