ANNND We're Back...

I'm not going to attempt to play catch up...That would just be too overwhelming for everyone involved.
But I would like to get back into the swing of things.
Now that Caroline is 6 (!) months old, I feel like I am back to my old human self and can now perform normal adult-like tasks such as showering on a regular basis and maybe even throwing in a blog post here and there.
Can't hurt, right?
Something else that made me feel human lately was when my mom and sister came into town this past weekend.
It was my birthday and to celebrate we decided to run a half marathon???
Not much of celebration-- more like birthday torture but it was actually fun and was a great way to get back into shape after being pregnant for 9 months.

Note to self: don't try to act like a champ and blow past all 12 water stops without a drink bc you will get dehydtrated and feel like dying for the next 24 hours.
On my birthday we went to eat at a yummy restaurant called Bar Pitti in the West Village.
 Bar Pitti has amazing authentic Italian food and was the perfect place for a pre-race carbo load/birthday dinner.
Tip: get the burrata for an appetizer. Oh and talk to the waiters as much as possible bc they are all straight up Italian and have legit accents.
We also went to check out the Macy's Flower Show and I took ONE awesome pic to capture the beauty of it all:
I need to work on that.
We went inside to Macy's shoe department and stayed for like 2 hours on just that floor alone.
Caroline enjoyed it all too.
She's a pretty good shopping companion.
Mom, Maren....COME BACK!!!



  1. You look SO GREAT! Did you really just have a baby? Dang! Welcome back to blogland :)

  2. you are such a babe. i'm pretty ticked at myself for not getting downtown more often to see the baldwin ladies. let's change that before you go and leave me.
