I was going for 'Geek Chic'
I think I got what I was looking for....
Good news LB:
A. The hard part is over.
B. You will no doubt be the cutest decked out Gap kid known to man.
(Plus your parents are ridiculously good looking AND hilarious, you've got this in the bag!)
C. Hopefully your Grandma will call you 'Lil Bean' in the 'HI MOOOSE' voice.
D. Only 18 short years until you too can take the 'Boy's Trip' to Vegas.
(By then, you and Luke may be wheeling all the other boys around though..)
E. (And this is the best one)
You and your Mom are officially Great Grandpa Sal's 'Favorites'
(something I have been vying for, for 29 long years.
Look out for your $25 dollars Savings Bond in the mail...lucky kid)
Welcome to the World! We knew you could do it buddy!!!
(Strat, Me, and the hubs)
We stayed at the Tribeca Grand and were upgraded to a suite. In New York terms, this means a room larger than a closet.
Not a bad view
and Champagne on arrival. This impressed me more than the upgrade. Does that mean I'm a lush?
The party was on this rooftop
where I posed for a picture
But it was really hot, as the hubs captured in this candid.
Luckily, when the sun started to go down, we got a nice breeze.
But we still had to venture inside for some a/c.
Until the sun went all the way down.
Shortly after this photo was taken, we exited the party to go on the hunt for chicken cutlet sandwiches...
Which I don't think are on the 'Italy Diet'. Come to think of it, champagne isn't either.
Boo for late night cravings, yay for Strat's birthday!
( i'm super excited for the 'landing zone')
can i tell you we had the the best time? all we did was laugh the whole time like a couple of school kids. when you can laugh your tail off with one person in the middle of nowhere in a place with license plates and posters of labradors all over the walls, served over paper place mats that have 'mountain talk' explain words like 'a fixin' and 'hankerin' to you while you drink beer and eat fried craw fish and would rather be there with him than at any fancy restaurant with all your friends, i think you've found your guy. come to think of it, any relationship i can think of that is a happy one, my parents and sister's come to mind, both partners are pretty hilarious. i think i'm on to something.
