A Monday Montage

Last week I turned 40.  For the past several years The Sarge and I have gone out to an expensive dinner for my birthday.  And really, that's about all we could have managed the last two years anyway, with a clingy infant on our hands.

This year I wanted to do something a little different and so we made plans to go to New York City with some good friends, bum around the Lower East Side and get dinner and drinks. It was a ton of fun and a success on other levels as well (childcare, to name one.)

A gorgeous day in the city.  A view from The New Museum.

Views from the streets.

This place.  Like a walk down memory lane, and a place to buy a new favorite t-shirt.

The downside.

Despite the blisters (there was a matching one on the other pinky toe), I am already thinking about next year.  Happy Birthday to me!


  1. Happy Birthday! Looks like you had a great time in the city :)

    1. Thanks! It was a much needed day of "escape."

  2. So happy that you had a wonderful birthday!! How nice to have a grown up day. Happy, happy birthday!! Always nice to welcome someone else into the 40's club. ( I have been a member for 7 years, and I have to say,not so bad!! Lol!) xo

    1. Thanks, Kathy! It was a great day! I don't anticipate 40 feeling terribly different than 39, but I have been questioned a lot by others about it! It's a milestone, for sure!
