Life according to Instagram, Week 12.

Another week brought to you by Instagram...
1. Our Sunday afternoon was spent playing Sorry and watching Toy Story 3. It was a fun day!
2. Spring perfection in Astoria.
3. Oh. my. god. What a Cluster is my new favorite Ben & Jerry's flavor. Amazing.
4. I cooked! I never cook. I don't know how to cook. But Pinterest inspired me to attempt stuffed peppers, and they turned out pretty great!
5. The adventures of an urban squirrel.
6. I work with the most amazing kids. This little gift made my day.
7. & 8. Street art near Prospect Park.
9-11. We celebrated Brian's birthday on Tuesday night at Christos Steakhouse in Astoria. Our dinner was perfection, from the steaks to the pesto basil mashed potatoes.
12. I returned to Ralph's on Wednesday night after school with Brianne. I smartened up this time and just ordered a medium (instead of two back to back smalls like last week). The peanut butter cookie dough and graham crunch combo was delicious.
13. Easy come, easy go.
14. I kicked off my spring break on Friday in the village. Washington Square Park was where my New York story all began, and it will forever have a very special place in my heart. So many fond memories from 2003 in this park.
15. Haircuts with Motoki make me so happy.
16. & 17. I stopped into Sockerbit after my haircut for an afternoon candy fix.
18. Cheers! I enjoyed a mexican lunch and margarita sampler at Agave with Brianne Friday afternoon. Spring break is such a happy, carefree time for teachers!
19. I couldn't resist a second manicure in Thanks a Windmillion. Loving this color.
20. 9/11 tiles in the West Village.
21. I couldn't have said it better myself.
22. Ralph's cravings strike again! Peanut butter and jelly and peanut butter fluff combo.
23. Grateful Brianne is my Italian Ice partner in crime!
24. Brian, Emily, and I spent our Saturday afternoon at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. We went on an egg hunt all morning, and then enjoyed a picnic lunch outside in the sunshine.
25. We spent the afternoon hiking. Emily is an expert hiker!
26. Apparently hiking works up a crazy appetite. We chowed down at a diner before dropping Emily back off Saturday night- I thoroughly enjoyed breakfast for dinner, while Emily and Brian devoured sandwiches and fries.
27. By the end of our meal, we lost all control. Brian and I split a six-layer piece of carrot cake.
28. And Emily had an ice cream sundae.
29. Hello NYC. Driving over the Whitestone Bridge home from Connecticut.

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones.
