Life according to Instagram, Week 48.

My first week of 2013 brought to you by Instagram...
1. Chuck surprised our family with a new Xbox Kinect on our final night in Minnesota. We had so much fun playing all of the new games together!
2. Back home in NYC...
3. & 4. We go crazy on New Year's Eve here in NYC! Our evening was filled with movies, Battleship, and homemade French bread pizzas at home.
5. Emily made all of our New Year's decorations, including our very own ball to drop at midnight.
6. I know it had to be done, but I was just not ready to part with my tree come January 1st! It stayed up until the 6th...
7. Boo was less than thrilled with the snowman costume Santa left in her stocking.
8. I love the new mug I got from my little brother, Duncan, for Christmas! Cindy Lou is on one side, and several others from the Who gang are on the other.
9. Primary colors, Astoria style.
10. My stepdad rocks! He hauled my new mixer from Minnesota to Newark while on business, and then hand delivered it to me in Manhattan via Penn Station! I can't wait to bake with it soon.
11. 42nd Street.
12. Hello delicious free birthday drink. January is always an exciting coupon month!
13. West Broadway.
14. & 15. Saturday was a spa day. I used the gift certificate Brian gave me last year for an incredibly relaxing massage and mani/pedi.
16. Cream and gray winter nails. One of my favorite color combinations to date.
17. SoHo snack.
18. My short rib empanada was delicious!
