three guesses where we went this weekend

on saturday afternoon the highs reached a balmy 24 degrees in nyc and we were dying a slow and painful death of the worst cabin fever ever. 

huck wasn't interested in napping and i needed an excuse to put on a shirt, so we decided to bundle the kid up in every article of clothing he owns and go for a brisk, chilly walk to lull his tired bones to sleep. 

at about 59th and 6th avenue huck woke up and smacked his lips at me, so we ducked into the first warm building we could find so i could feed him. it happened to be a pretty rad toy store. we ransacked the place like kids hopped up on sugar.

  6. I am freaked OUT by those newborns! My daughter has a doll that says things/makes random noises when moved. It scares the crap out of me when I go in to check on her/smother her in kisses in the middle of the night and I accidently kick the doll.

  7. LOVE FAO Schwarz! Way better than the Toys R Us in Times Square!

    And the little Huck is looking adorable as usual!

  8. There are parts of one's soul that NYC can satisfy that no other place on earth can reach. I miss it. Also, I really thought I saw you at church yesterday, which was weird because I don't know you :) You weren't visiting NW Arkansas yesterday, were you?

  10. Nat my sweet friend, this makes me miss your face in real life. Will I ever see you again?? We're moving to Germany this summer, if you're in Utah before then we've got to get the babies together. Arranged marriage, you know.

  12. Love FAO. don't know if I've ever been to the NYC one, which is a tragedy. Also, is it sad that I wish I could get the dollhouse couch in real life size?

  19. You've inspired me to watch BIG again. I totally own the movie, but haven't watched it in quite some time. Now I feel like I absolutely NEED to!

  20. Spencer's parents would tell him that FAO Schwartz was a toy MUSEUM. That's GENIUS. They told them they could play with the toys, but none could leave the museum. That way, they didn't have any kids whining about wanting this and that, like I'm sure Huck did as soon as you left.

    Except all he wanted were boobs.
