happy mlk day everyone!
i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again - mlk day is one of the most underrated holidays out there. not only does it celebrate a man who did so much for progression in this country, but it is one of those holidays you kinda need post christmas break. tyler and i are very lucky in that we get two weeks off for christmas and new year’s eve which is just enough time for you to get in the habit of not working. then all of a sudden it is full steam ahead at work and you’re left like, “hey! wait a minute, i got pretty used to doing nothing and now you want me to WORK?!” - so having that nice little three day weekend is a pretty great blessing in disguise.
this past week was kind of a doozy - i have been staying in our apartment as i was sent to the ER on monday and missed almost this whole week’s worth of work. anyone ever had a ruptured ovarian cyst? if so, you know the pain i am talking about. if not, i wouldn’t ever wish it upon anyone. it is some of the most intense feelings of pain i’ve ever felt. i’m STILL not fully recovered yet and it has almost been a week! but i am on the mend and will be ok soon (i better be ok for our palm springs trip in february!!). thank you to all my friends and family who checked to see if i was ok and most of all thank you to tyler for getting me all the soup a girl could ask for <3
since i was feeling a little better on saturday, tyler and i were able to go and do some fun things this weekend! on saturday night we met up with our friends david and kristen to go to the museum of sex exhibit - night fever. you guuuys, it was incredible. i myself am a disco baby (my mom for a brief period of time was disco instructor!!) so this exhibit was everything! the exhibit was so fun - music was bumping, lights were flashing and disco balls were turning. it even has a built in bar where you can get disco doughnuts (glitter included), boob jell-o shots (yes, we indulged) and some classic 1970s drinks. kristen and i were having a TIME - we literally did all the boomerangs if you saw my insta story. the best part is the exhibit is free to see!
today, tyler and i were going to get an “early” start to go visit our favorite greenpoint spot - peter pan donuts. i say early in quotes because that really meant we left at 11:30…oops! if you have never been, peter pan’s is so old-school inside and the doughnut flavors are classic. not to mention it is SUPER cheap. we got two bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches (which i HIGHLY recommend you get), two red velvet doughnuts (also highly recommend) and coffee for $10. you have to admit that is pretty darn good, no matter where you live. now we are back in our apartment, tyler is playing video games (it’s a recent development..) and im sitting here sipping tea and listening to the la la land soundtrack. have you seen yet?? it is so good!!!! if you haven’t seen singing in the rain, i recommend you watch that first and then la la land and see how similar they are. after i saw la la land, i took it upon myself to learn tap this year soooo if you know anyone offering tap lessons in the nyc area hit me UP. not joking :)
have a great rest of your day, folks!
