this, that & the other

I find it so easy to make Seinfeld references, don't you?

Life has been eventful lately, both as a mommy & a blogger.  I'm talking everything from Runaway Bunnies at Halloween to meeting Niecy Nash.  Here's a quick rundown of what I've been up to lately:

I had this short piece published on the CBS New York website.  Researching "Daddy & Me" play date ideas was a lot of fun, as it gets me excited about living in NYC all over again (while temporarily forgetting things like, as astutely proclaimed by The Rent is Too D*mn High party leader Jimmy McMillan, umm.... the rent is too d*mn high).

With the end of 2010 on the horizon (& nearly all of my vacation days used), I'm already thinking about where we'll go on vacation next year.  Since Baby S can fly free until age 2, Husband and I are thinking of a bigger trip, though we love Nantucket.  Bigger as in Europe.  This is as far as I've gotten, though, as I'm too overwhelmed with the endless options floating around in my head.  Luckily, I can turn to my cousin's new blog, To Europe With Kids.  Sonja and family have travelled extensively in Europe, and she is chock full of tips/suggestions/itinerary ideas for travelling with young children to teenagers.  This is going to be a great resource once the true planning begins.  I can't wait!

I was recently invited to an event at the Samsung Experience store at Columbus Circle.  Their sleek & sexy showroom includes a makeshift kitchen featuring, you guessed it, Samsung products. First off, when I think of Samsung, I don't get much further than flat screen TVs.  I didn't even realize they made household appliances, but make them they do... is it wrong to covet this seriously awesome refrigerator?  I'm pretty sure it is, yet I couldn't help myself.  Of course, living in a rental, I am not in the market for a new oven, refrigerator or sigh washer & dryer.  And yet, a girl can dream (let it be known I dream about stainless appliances only on occasion). 

Miss Nash & Plain Jane
Highlight of event?  Meeting the one-and-only Niecy Nash.  Looking pretty glam in a silky red number, I got a chance to speak with her briefly.  I told her that it has long been understood between a friend and I that if we could have drinks with any celebrity, it would be her.  Response from NN: "Mmm....Well, I'd have a drink with me, too!"  Miss Niecy does not suffer from lack of self esteem and I kind of love that about her.  Man, do I ever look BLAH next to her!

I attended American Eagle's 2011 Spring Preview, paying particular attention to what's in store (literally) for their 77kids & Little 77 line.  I saw some really, REALLY cute items for Spring, so am excited about that.  In fact, their stores are doing so well that they're expanding to new locations - that's great news for 77kids.  The relaxed yet urban look of Aerie had me walking out of the room wishing I was in a hammock by a lake somewhere, just minutes away from jetting into the city in a Mini Cooper (yes, I also dream about Mini Coopers).

Our little bunny
Lastly - and most, most importantly - I chased after a little Runaway Bunny on Halloween.  Baby S was pretty adorable in her bunny costume.  Our weekend was Halloween activity-filled, with a venture to Central Park on Saturday and a carnival at Hudson River Park on Sunday.  I loooooved seeing all the kids dressed up in their costumes, which only makes me wonder... what will she be next year!?
