Cousinly Bonding

Growing up, it was our normal routine to always be out and about as a family, even if it means, we'd just be driving out to Long Island almost three cars deep just to go to the mall or apple picking or something fun.  Now that me, my sisters and my cousins are all grown up with families of our own, we plan on continuing the tradition.  

On this lovely Sunday afternoon, we headed out to Martha Clara Vineyards and had so much fun.

Boston, MA

It's been about 10 years since I've been to Boston and since he's never been I decided to plan a last minute quick roadtrip.  I forgot how nice this city is, although my husband was not impressed lol.

Quick trip to Philly !

On a foggy Sunday morning a few weeks back, I dragged my husband to Philly, I intended to see the famed Magic Gardens but got side-tracked and totally forgot about it.  We did go to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and I also finally got to try out a Philly Cheesesteak (it was delicious btw), then of course for dessert we had Cannolis.  Definitely have to go back and see the Magic Gardens. 

My sister convinced me to download Snapchat a while ago but lately I've been using it more and more becoming my most used app these days. I absolutely love it especially when I'm out and about, my husband on the other hand is getting so sick of me and my constant picture and video taking lololll

Unplanned Day Date

A few weeks ago, we both had a day off during the week and so we decided to spend a day in the city doing what we do best, eat, converse, thrift and eat again haha. With no particular agenda in mind, we basically thought of everything right on the spot, talk about "winging it". It's always better that way I think ;)
We started our day at Ralph's Coffee shop, if you guys haven't been here yet, it's a must. It's such a cozy place but avoid if you're not into crowds, it got too crowd by the time noon came around, that's when the tourists come out I guess.
After our long conversation in the coffee shop, what started off as a rainy day ended up turning into a really nice day, the sun came out and we were able to walk around in one of our favorite neighborhoods, the Lower East Side.  We frequent this particular neighborhood because this is where he grew up and we really do love it.
Finding art in the Lower East Side is pretty easy, this one in particular is located at First Street Green Art Park. There's so much color and I absolutely love it.  

After taking a couple of shots, we pretty much walked around some more, talked some more then decided to go thrifting at our favorite spots and ended our date by having a really late lunch or really early dinner at this filipino spot called "Maharlika", another one of our favorite go-to spots.  We forget how it's so much better to be out and about during the week as opposed to the weekends lol, because we went early on in the week, we had this restaurant all to ourselves and we enjoyed it so much.
