Whereabouts -- Whatabouts.....

Jim and I went to the LA area.  Our friend Kristin took good care of our babies and home.  Here are some photos....

Hot chocolate before I left with my friend Muriel.  
What a fun day and sweet treat from her!  A dear friend!

Sunrise and breakfast with Jim in Santa Monica

The night before I left Aunt Jeanne and I saw Macbeth
 - words can not express - AMAZING!

A few weeks ago my dear friend like a lil sis Emily came to NYC - 
we had cocktails and dinner in soho and cappuccino's in the UWS -- how great, right?! 

Again, me and Em....

Hiking in Malibu - classic Suz and Heidi moment...

Before leaving for Santa Monica I went to Macy's Annual spring flower show...

After I got back from Santa Monica a few of my college friends came to NYC.  So great to see them!

Santa Monica Last Week....

....Good!  From spending time at M.A.K.E to meetings to road trips to dinners with friends to hiking with friends to working to all kinds of enjoying - all good!

Loved spending time at M.A.K.E.!  If you're in the area you should check it out!  L.A. Times featured a review by Jonathan Gold just last week.  Here are some photos via L.A. Times:

Busted out the silver and the waterford...

....Because it was time for a party -- a birthday party for Jim and we had such fun celebrating him this past weekend!  So much so that I didn't get but a few pictures.  We talked, laughed, ate, drank, sang, and just enjoyed!  Doesn't get much better!

Getting set up:

Cheese, Charcuterie, Herb, and Fruit Tray
Spinach Dip and homemade herb bread
Tomato Dip and chicken taquitos
Lamb sliders and olive, feta, sundried tomato sauce  
Bundt Cake

Inspiration: small bites, stuffed bell peppers, phyllo cups

Photos from his actual birthday and our dinner out together
