Recently the hubs and I were able to sneak away for a night in New York City. We were meeting with a big group of friends from hubs’ medical school class, people I haven’t seen since we lived out of the country in Grenada.
This particular group of friends all hail from the deep south, so we used to get together on Friday nights and cook southern food, anything from fried chicken to gumbo to jambalaya.
We always cooked together in the hot Grenada heat with all the doors open and no A/C. So, we all found it rather amusing that we were all dressed up at a fancy sushi restaurant in Manhattan together when just a year earlier we were all in island mode. It was definitely an expensive endeavor to meet our friends there, to hire a babysitter, go into the city, buy dinner, etc. but I wouldn’t change it for anything. In fact, I’d like to do it more often.
We’ve been getting out a lot more with the kids too now that the weather is better, and I have to say it’s a nice change from being cooped up inside. Has anyone else been getting out and about now that it’s spring?
Let me know in the comments and until then, enjoy these posts from around the web:

I just wanted to say thanks to Kohl’s who sent me a really cute black dress from the Princess Vera Wang collection that I wore to a women’s entrepreneurs event recently. They were so sweet and nice to work with, and for someone who rarely, rarely buys clothes and really needs to replace her spit up-mom wardrobe, getting a new dress in the mail was the highlight of my week.
I’ve been following Kohls on Instagram too and they seriously have the cutest spring clothes. I don’t know why anyone would ever shop at high end stores when they have high quality and affordable dresses at places like Kohls with amazing designers like Vera Wang to partner with. They are running a big sale right now if you’re interested in checking out some great deals.
