i was set on seeing matilda, and thankfully my parents obliged. Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

obviously i was pretty stoked on the ideaProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

i did not, however, think about the type of crowd a show like matilda would draw… this photo perfectly encapsulates the experience, aka my 49 year old father plus every single 10 year old on the upper west side accompanied by their mom. rejoice!  dad points for being a good sport. Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

matilda was really good. you should totally see it and it will change your ideas about broadway being kind of stupid. Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

one day i dragged my parents way north for a bagel at absolute bagel. these are the best bagels. they’re life changing. i would go back to new york just for one of these everything bagels with a sundried tomato shmear.IMG_0050

i thought we might run out of things to talk about after a whole week together, but when things got a little slow moving, it was comforting to know that we could always just revisit the conversation of whether these water towers are ACTUALLY utilitarian or not. no conclusions were drawn.  Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

we went to abc carpet and this carpet reached out and grabbed me. not mad. spring break goals 2015!  Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
