Picnic outfit - happy summer time!


the Masks

Summer is in full swing this holiday weekend and the air in Brooklyn smells of grilled meats and charcoal fires.  I'm still trying to summer up my apartment and wanted to show you these masks I got in Costa Rica.  I love that they have tortugas on them.  I learned that word from Breaking Bad... do you remember that crazy scene?!?  Anyhow speaking of; I can't wait for the 5th season of that show...  but am nervous that it won't live up to the 4th season, which I thought was a perfect ending to a series.  Happy grilling everyone!

Post vacation inspirations

Summer's peaking around the corner here!  Zach and I went on vacation to Costa Rica a month ago and I now feel like I never went.  Isn't that so typical of vacations?  I'm craving that tropical feel again so, I'm thinking if I incorporate a little palm tree in my apartment - I'll feel a little better... so here I am in search for the perfect palm tree that can survive in my NYC apartment.  We get a lot of sunlight here, but I'm wondering if I'll need to do something about the humidity...

Well, while I'm searching for plants to make my home more summery - take a look at my favorite shots from my trip...

Count er maroon

Is it me or does life keep getting busier and busier?  PHEW!  Here's a post I've been meaning to put up here but then we went on a trip... and then came home to no electricity... and other building things... and life... you know how it goes.

The big news around the apartment is... Mr. Z changed out our kitchen counter!  Whoo!  It was not an easy feat, but already the counters don't seem so new after living with them for about a month.  Not liking a color may seem like a small issue - especially since the material was a nice (and expensive) granite - but  I can't think of a color I dislike more than maroon - eek!  There were minor mishaps removing the heavy maroon counter, but he did it ~ and it made a HUGE difference.  Isn't he amazing :D?  We ended up giving the old one away for free on Craigslist and the guy messaged me a photo of what he did with the old counter, which is kinda cool, right?




Planning...




Doing...








And this is what happened to the maroon ones! I'm glad they got a nice new home!
