THINGS, WITH A SIDE OF NATURAL DISASTERS


first of all, is i'm obsessed with this sweater.

secondly, yesterday afternoon i survived an earthquake. i feel an exclamation point might belong there maybe. exclamation point! at first i thought i was just dizzy, and then i realized i was actually bouncing

being on the ninth floor of a skinny old apartment building during a mild earthquake feels like what i imagine sitting on top of a stick of string cheese might feel like. which is to say, wobbly. 

thirdly, we recently had an anniversary. happy anniversary to us! we went into brooklyn for sushi and the bridge, and then dunkin donuts because it was right there on the corner and looked SO GOOD. oh look i have photos for this part!



happy anniversary, baby.
(insert joke here about earth shaking things, i'm too tired to come up with one.)

    glad you survived eastern earthquake 2011!! my friend in DC emailed me right after it happened, "we just had an earthquake!" and i thought she was joking (because she used to live in quake central). heh.

    and that's my novel comment to you tonight, mrs. natalie! : )

  5. I'm right in there with you from DC. Is it the end of the world as we know it? And am I over-dramatic?

  7. I remember a couple of years ago we had a couple of tremors in Manchester (UK). I was in the bath and it was THE strangest sensation ever.

    That was one floor up, so I couldn't imagine being on the ninth floor. Finger crossed everything stays safe for you guys (and the rest of NYC) on Sunday.

  9. "...and i thought to myself, MY BABY! which is what i think to myself now every time anything happens anymore."

    This line made me LAUGH OUT LOUD, funny lady, mostly because I know it's true. And it made me think of my little sis, who is a new mommy. Thanks for the giggle.

  11. I remember Kate Beckinsale saying that when she became a mom, EVERY disaster, accident, kidnapping, etc. made her think of her own little gil and just HURT. She said parenting turns you raw, and it's true (as evidenced by my tough, masculine husband crying through every scene with Mae Mobley in it during the movie "The Help").

  12. BTW, Target is selling super cute $8 tees right now, and several of them are stripey! They're the perfect scoop-neck (no g's peeking out so that everyone can ogle your underwear) and longer in the torso. THE PERFECT TEE. I bought the cream-and-navy striped one today and thought of my friend Natalie. Hurry yourself on over to Target.com and get some! Everyone needs a cute stripey tee (and a cute cardigan to go over it) as the weather turns cooler!

  13. I'm a dedicated reader, but not commenter of your blog. I find it silly that of all the amazingly talented things you have written what has inspired me to finally comment was you saying "it feels like what i imaging sitting on top of a stick of string cheese might feel like. which is to say, wobbly." I am pretty sure it made my day. I have laughed out loud at the thought more than once.

  14. Your white/clear(?) glasses are adorable on you. Please never take them off! Being in VA, I have passed through the earthquake, and now also Irene. I'm hoping (and pretty much everyone on the East Coast) that Mother Nature will cool it for a bit now, she's one angry woman!!
