life | camping out nyc



hello, hello! a quick post about the father's day camp out they had last night in the park where we have our garden. can you imagine doing it nyc? it's a combination of cool and scary at the same time. growing up, we camped out in the back yard in the suburbs and didn't make it past midnight because it rained! happy father's day!

xo, cindy

ps we're just about all packed up for our bathroom renovation. there are neighbors to consider when you live in an apartment, so i'm pretty nervous about all the noise and banging. i'm sure i'll be popping tums like m&ms, tomorrow ;)! and, have you seen the new pretzel m&ms? yum!

Good luck with the renovations! Will you show us the before and after? I'm just a little curious... I'm a total M&M's addict - with peanuts - won't tell how many I eat a week, that would be too embarrassing!

Great pictures of the camp out! How fun! I used to love to camp out in the backyard when I was little:) I am so excited for your bathroom renovations! We just got our bathroom renovated and it makes SUCH a difference!

My 5 yr old recently slept in a tent with my husband in our backyard. I felt a little uneasy about it. And THAT was in mpls, not nyc!! Love that middle shot. Good luck with the bathroom renovations. We only have one and I desperately want to update it. (also, totally wanting those pretzel m&ms now.)

It sure would be fun for kids, but you wouldn't catch me there. I'm not a great camper!

you must show before and after pictures of your bathroom Cindy :) Please!!
