Weekend Snapshots

Weekend Snapshots

This is how 6:40AM sounds nearly every single day lately:

“Good morning, sweetheart!”

“DINOSAUR.”

So on Saturday morning, we wandered down Main Street window-shopping for antiques…but ended up going home with a brand-new – and, in my opinion, fairly terrifying – T-Rex to feed the obsession.

I had to do a bunch of work this weekend, but it was the kind of work I most certainly don’t mind: putting together 12 different looks for a very fun shoot I have coming up in a few days. Those shoes!

Around this time of year I start panicking about the finite number of weekends left to do things like sit in the grass eating potato salad, and amp up the frequency with which I make my favorite summery dishes. This potato salad happened twice within a 24-hour period: once for Saturday’s BBQ with Stephen and Dave, and a second time for dinner Sunday night at our friend Amy’s place.

Cook about 4 cups quartered new potatoes until fork-tender, then toss in a bowl with 1/3 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar, 2 tbsp coarse ground mustard, 4-5 finely chopped scallions, 1 cubed avocado, and a sprinkling of sea salt.

And this was how the weekend came to a close: with the cutest little friends ever.

        PS: I think we may be trying to head up to check out Blue Hill farms Labor Day weekend since Emilio loves farms and farm animals – would love any tips since you guys have been a bunch!

          oh, fun! i’ve only really been to the cafe on the grounds (which is great), and sort of just walked around the place – i haven’t personally visited the animals – but i know they have seasonal activities if you check the site! you may also want to stop over onto main street in tarrytown – lots of cute restaurants and antique stores, and a great toy store.
