Weekend Wanderings - Hailey's Birthday Party

I had a really lovely weekend, spending lots of time with family and friends. On Saturday, my parents picked R. and me up and drove us out to Pennsylvania, to celebrate my cousin Hailey's third birthday. It was great to see everyone and spend some time together. (The delicious food and seeing how happy Hailey was when she opened her presents was pretty great, too.)

My parents dropped us off in Manhattan on their way home, and since the weather was so nice and we didn't have any plans for the night, we walked across town, through Little Italy and into Chinatown for dumplings. It's pretty rare that we find ourselves in Little Italy, but it was so charming that it made me want to play tourist and eat outside at one of the restaurants there.

On Sunday, we took a walk up to the Home Depot to buy some pots to transplant the big elephant ear plant R. bought on Friday. We found some nice ones and then spent the morning transplanting a few different plants and reorganizing the house a little. I think we've got quite enough in the way of plants now—but I love how they brighten up our place!


That afternoon, I headed to the Mega Swap clothing swap of my dreams. I'm a pretty big fan of clothing swaps, and this was probably the best one I've been to. I found some really lovely pieces (two nice blazers, a couple of sweaters, a lovely silk scarf) and it was great to catch up with some old friends and meet some new ones. I brought home way too much stuff, but it's all really high quality and I know I'll wear it all, so I feel good about it, even if my dresser is a little more crowded than it was before.

  1. Oh my goodness! It seems like you all had fun time in this wedding. I really want to see more photographs. Please share here!! Well, I also attended a royal wedding party at one of the prettiest Seattle venues. It was such a wonderful experience for me as I attended the royal party for the first time!
