we got to enjoy a bit of a staycation last week. having brandon home in the middle of a random tuesday was probably the greatest thing. we made plenty of family duane reade runs and plenty of family playground runs and one very lovely surprise middle-of-the-week family picnic run. i can't think of a better way to close out this summer season than lying on a picnic blanket in the fading summer sun with my two favorite dudes.
we have this great picnic spot in sheep's meadow right under this big old tree. it's cool in the shade and there's always really great people-watching. we usually stop at the magnolia bakery on 69th and columbus on our way in, because every picnic should end with a cupcake taste test is how i figure, and sometimes if our picnic is more of a last-minute deal we'll even buy boxed salads and sandwiches from the le pain quotidien just across from the meadow. instant picnic! their cobb salad is real good. if it's super super last minute and we don't have a blanket on hand we'll sometimes sit on a couple flattened baggu bags. i keep a bunch in the stroller. groceries? picnic? resourcefulness? check!
p.s. you know when you get a big hair cut and suddenly everything feels bouncier? i've got this fresh new lease on healthy duds, i can't believe i agonized over chopping it all off for so long. i've solemnly sworn to take better care of things this time around.
i've been using pantene's new advanced+ keratin repair keragloss oil mist the last few weeks. keratin is the protein that provides strength and protection for your hair shaft, which can deplete over time due to brushing, styling and all those heat tools we love. the mist is both repairing and protecting, it lasts a full 48 hours on the hair shaft (so you only need to apply it every other day at most), and the stuff smells pretty good, too.
thank you to pantene, and thank you as always for supporting the companies that help support our family.
