This Week's Delights

Happy Friday!

(I'm going to begin posting weekly round-ups to highlight the things that delighted me over the past week.)

*Overheard a 4-year-old debate the most efficient subway route with his nanny on the R train one morning. Kid was very convincing. 

*Joined a gym again! Feels good to burn off some energy and sweat it out to 90s classic "Rhythm is a Dancer" which my gym has apparently adopted as their theme song. 

*The fall bounty of produce is overflowing and features my absolute favorites...crisp apples and pears and creamy squashes and pumpkins. Can't wait to go apple-picking! 

* Two of my favorite food bloggers' recent entries in the Project Food Competition on Foodbuzz. Monet, who writes the blog, Anecdotes and Apples  created a gorgeous autumn-inspired vegetarian menu that literally made my mouth water and Lauren from Foodie House's chic table settings and incredible presentation were major inspiration for my next dinner party. 

* This woman's outfit. I totally appreciate the effort she took putting together this ladylike ensemble. And that little mink stole over her shoulder is just too much!

* I decorated my apartment for Halloween for the first time ever. Can't wait to show you the results next week! (This isn't it; I couldn't sleep with this thing flying overhead.)

Have a wonderful weekend! 


  1. I am dying for a fake fur stole! I may just get one. Freak everyone in my office out.
