huck takes the met!



i love going to the met. i love trekking across the park, i love walking past all the consulates along 5th avenue, i love those cute little metal buttons you get to wear, and i love going home with super sore legs and swearing you'll never walk again.

i also love the way huck gets a bonkers three hour nap in his stroller every time we go.

when you go to the met with me, you end up spending a lot of time in the european decorative arts wing, because i love to look at all the couches.


i got to take a really funky lift up a level with the stroller in the american wing.


waiter, there is too much pepper in my paprikash.


(but i would be proud to partake of your pecan pie.)

more met to come.
SO EXCITING!

  1. I've never considered the idea of the Met having furniture. That bed is crazy and I want one in my next house.

    I wish we were friends in real life - I want to go to the Met with you, and I REALLY want to squeeze those chubby little cheeks on that adorable little baby.

  3. I have been to NYC once...when I was 19 and we went to the met and I totally didn't appreciate the experience and I just complained the whole time that I was tired. I am kicking myself now that I didn't take advantage of that great opportunity, dang teenage laziness!

  4. Did you ever read The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler? It's a fabulous story of two children who run away from home and live in the Met. You'd love it!

  8. I wish I was like you - going on all these day trips witha baby. Now I have four kids I wish I had known how 'easy'it was to go out with one kid. I should have done it more. Good on you for getting out there walking, seeing the sites daily. I stayed at home wayyyy to much with little ones.

  10. Huck's rosy, chubby cheeks, big eyes and little pencil eyebrows are too too cute. I know what you mean about walking until your legs are sore but I keep thinking 'there is always more too see! It will be worth it!'

  12. so fun. I love that you go out and do things with Huck. I know there are a lot of mom's that don't do much and just stay home with their baby and that sounds so sad to me! I hope when I have kids I go out and explore the world!

  13. The European rooms are my favorite section of the Met. And you always said that Huck looks like your dad, and he totally does! I saw him at church yesterday and I was like whoa! Huck aged fast!

    North Meets South

  14. I second the commenter who asked about brunch. Very curious about that. Mostly I wanted to say how adorably wise the Huck looks in that picture. Love it.

  15. I agree with others, your husband is crazy, and all these pictures are fun! Seems like having family in town has brought on lots of great NYC adventures. You're making me want to get out and run around Chicago doing fun things... but it's cold and I'm lazy. I keep saying once it warms up a little more I'll do more adventurous stuff :)

  19. I can't believe no one has mentioned the single most important thing about this post: BABY CARDIGAN.

    I also love the Met; my favorite odd corner of the museum is that room with the giant collection of tchotchkes and assorted glasswear under the American wing (I think). It's like my grandmother's heaven.

  20. I for one love all the photos!

    Also, whenever I try to whip out my camera at the Art Institute, they get all upset and start tailing me.

  21. you're so lucky to have all these cultural opportunites. i live in el paso where the closest thing to culture you experience is eating an authentic mexican food :( on the plus side, mexican food is truly mana from heaven. on the down side, every taco you eat bypasses your digestive systems and just falls straight to your hips. anyway. alls i'm trying to say is- i'm jealous of your museum outings. that and your baby is so incredibly cute and i love your pictures :)

  22. That funky couch with the extra chairs on the ends was my favorite. I'm going to name it a chaperone couch.
