A Walk In The Clouds At The Met

A Walk In The Clouds At The Met.

Even more unique than some of the “fashion” (courtesy of the LA Times blog) at the most recent MET Gala, is this rooftop installation by Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno. This work of art is perched atop the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and offers amazing views of the city.  Check out more of the stunning photos at www.whatwelikenyc.com.

This is definitely going on my must-visit list!

Daily Covet: Paris in Color

Speaking of Paris… I ran across this book that is to be released on April 18th.

The book is 128 presumably beautiful pages of photographs taken by Nichole and Evan Robertson.  I can’t wait to see Paris at its colorful best right from the comfort of my own home (since I can’t be there, that is!)

I also can’t wait to get my name on the waiting list.  And so can you right here!

Paris in Color, amazon.com $11.87 (Book cover photo taken from author's website at littlebrownpen.com)

22 hours…48 minutes

I am literally counting the hours & minutes until I leave for the weekend.  My kids are wearing me out.  They are wonderful but they are wearing me out!

A good friend of mine has a house up in Okoboji and 7 of us are going sans kids, sans husbands for the weekend!  I’m going to sleep all night, get up when I want to, sit by the lake and drink margaritas and wear big girls clothes instead of my yoga pants.

Booze cruise and dinner out are also on our agenda.  What more can I ask for?  Check back in for the deets on my weekend.

Travel Bug

We had some unexpected guests this past weekend.  We had them for dinner on Saturday night and received offers to visit them in their home countries someday.  Someday to me means, “let’s get something on the calendar.”

We are in no way able to make those kind of travel arrangements, at this time.  My husband will be starting a new job in less than two weeks and my children are still young and squirmy; possibly too squirmy for a full 24 hours of travel.

It is fun to look at maps and book virtual flights.  I’m hoping that someday soon, we will be able to visit our new international friends on their home turf as I’ve never been to Belgium, Holland, Spain or Italy but now we have extra incentive to want to go…
