I'm Behind in Life . . .

And so is every other mom blogger I guess, but I don't care! We Love Birds have been having so much fun enjoying spring in NYC - here's a quick snapshot of what we've been up to . . .

  • A couple weeks ago we went to Metro Minis' babywearing event at Kidberry in Harlem; it was so fun to be an inspiration to moms to keep wearing their little ones even into toddlerhood. I received lots of questions about my Boba:

  • I've gone to a couple book signings to see Scary Mommy and Courtney from Pizzazzerie, which has prompted an upcoming post about how interesting it is meeting bloggers IRL ("in real life")

  • We attended a Lion King event last week with members of the cast and students who have been working at Harlem School of the Arts on producing the show, and Nia had a blast and was even brought up on stage to learn a song - she's been singing it ever since!
  • Sunday night I attended fellow bloggers Smith & Ratliff's tasting dinner with 7 other strangers, and it was fantastic! {You can see the menu here and details on the set-up were just posted today here.} One of the things I truly love about NYC are opportunities like this (similar to the one I did here at Nat the Fat Rat's apartment)

  • This Thursday morning Nia and I are invited to a fun mommy and me event at Dylan's Candy Bar sponsored by Mattel (I'll post a recap next week!) then we head down to the Penn Relays right after to see my sister Lauren in the shot put

  • Saturday is my other sister Ariane's birthday and on Sunday we're heading to Alice's Tea Cup to celebrate (I can't believe she's never been since she's especially girly); it was one of the first places I went for brunch when I arrived in NYC 5 years ago and where I had one of my bridal showers

  • Next weekend my sister Lauren graduates from Anderson University in South Carolina and we'll stop in Charlotte first to visit Mr. Love Bird's family (this includes 3 girl cousins that Nia has never met so I'm very excited!)
There are so many other little things going on too and plenty of playgroups/meet-ups etc. I can tell this spring/summer's going to fly by!
