It’s been a busy, but fun week around these parts. And it’s beginning to feel like summer. Next week we are heading to Cape Cod to officially kick off the season. I can’t wait!
Sunday: Mother’s Day! Recovered from Saturday night’s wedding with some of Ken Sr.’s awesome eggs. Bummed around with family until we caught the bus back from Boston. So glad to be back in Brooklyn.
Wednesday: Pizza and beer at HiFi to celebrate Katy’s birthday. Always fun to hang out with the AOL crew. Went to see the Gaslight Anthem at Music Hall of Williamsburg. It was a pretty good show (though a weird crowd). I know it’s wrong, but the highlight might have been that we were home before 11:30!
Thursday: Ken got to see Paul Weller play a secret show at the John Varvatos store. I cam home from class and watched Up All Night. Have I talked about how this is my favorite show on TV right now? The proposal scene in this episode made me laugh and cry at the same time.
Friday: Early morning run with Jen in the park. It was an absolutely gorgeous morning. Work. Dinner with Martin and Rachel. Lots of champagne, good cheese, sausages, and the most delicious potato salad. It’s always so good to hang out with them.
Saturday: Chores around the house all morning. Ken went out with the guys for Eric’s bachelor party and I had a date night with my parents. We had a great meal at Sapphire and then saw One Man, Two Guvnors. It was so silly, but we really enjoyed it. I’m not sure the plot made any sense, but James Corden was amazing.
Song of the Week: Gaslight Anthem might not have blown us away, but they do play some really solid rock and roll. Here is one of my favorites, “American Slang,” for you crazy kids. I think this song might be about his mom. Maybe. Or maybe not. But anyway, I’m sending it out to the moms in my life. My own, who is the best in the world (and that’s all there is to say about that). And my mother-in-law, who taught my husband to love Bruce almost as much as she does (and Gaslight wouldn’t be if it wasn’t for Bruce). And Mary and Nanna and Janet and Margaret and all the other mothers and fairy godmothers who inspire me everyday. I love you, ladies. Happy Mother’s Day (a little late)!
