NYC Pick-Me-Up Weekend (& a Winner!)

I always love a good NYC-view
Happy Monday! We've had so many consecutive gray days here in Boston that I was shocked to see the sun peeking in this morning through my bedroom window. Yesterday, was Mr. Lovebird's 36th birthday and we hightailed it back from NYC so he could make his basketball team's championship game last night. It's a co-ed team and a few of the teammates' spouses show up with the kids to support each week. Yesterday the kids even made signs - it was too cute! Sadly Uka's team lost, but it's all in fun. 

I was at Create & Cultivate on Saturday and while I didn't stay the entire time, it really was a stellar event. Fro ma quality perspective it reminded me a lot of the aesthetic at Alt Summit, and I was so impressed with their powerhouse line-up including a few of my favorite blogger all-stars: SimplyCyn, ExtraPetite, Claire Sulmers (of Fashion Bomb Daily) and Taza

Speaking of powerhouses, Gloria Steinem was the closing keynote at Create & Cultivate, and while I couldn't stay I followed up on Twitter to see how it went, and it sounded so moving. The event took place in Queens then I hustled over to Manhattan for the PowerMoms Awards and Summit presented by Loacker. I'm so glad I went as I saw several Jersey City mom friends AND my blogger friends too - it's always a nice surprise when corners of your life come together! 

Over the next couple days I'm prepping to head out to Orlando bright and early Wednesday for Mom 2.0, but wanted to share the winner of my Mother's Day LipSense giveaway:

Congrats Melissa! I'll be in touch for you to receive your prize.

Have a good week!
