Saturday sunrise

Today's prompt for Fat Mum Slim photo challenge is "sunrise." I am never up for sunrise - not a morning person - so I was not sure what to do for a photo. Well, Phoebe decided to wake me with the sun at 5:20AM. I laid there for a couple minutes and decided to hop out of bed, throw on a jacket and head over to the beach. Boy, I've been missing out!! It's warm light over the soft waves with cool breeze and birds soaring high above... Lovely, just lovely.20140524-102053-37253885.jpg20140524-102052-37252709.jpg20140524-102053-37253484.jpg20140524-102053-37253167.jpg 20140524-102054-37254191.jpg

laudree NYC

Finally.  Finally made it to Laudrée New York!  It's the little things that make this girl so damn happy.  I have been begging friends who live in NY to bring some to me when they visit - but hasn't happened yet.  I have been to Jersey three times since the new year - too far to go for macarons (even for me).  So finally had a meeting in Manhattan and promptly after hopped in a cab to Laudrée!  It's a small store, very busy and they rush you through the line, so there wasn't really time to linger and take it all in.  But, I got me a dozen all snug in a box and headed home!  Hands down the best macarons around!!  (p.s. did you know they are flown in from Paris daily!?!) laudree

(side note - we did pick up macarons at Macaron Cafe in NYC and those were pretty darn good - better than Dana's Bakery I thought - though I like Dana's flavor combos)

March ten on ten - a Sunday out and about.  Breakfast with Click Magazine (love that magazine!), beautifying, allergist - finally got my walking papers and after four years of shots, I'm done!!, badly needed car wash - road salt is a killer, target, lunch @ longman and eagle - was there three hours - long wait, good food and drink!, shopping on Clybourn! Hope your tenth was fabulous! (no .. I didn't buy that plate from West Elm, but it is kind of fun, no?) 20140310-203437.jpg
