Happy first day of May! Spring has finally sprung here in NYC, and I couldn't be happier. I'm ready to soak up the warmth, so let's bring on the weekend, starting with the five things I'm loving this week!
NYC spring fun
After our eternal winter, I'm thrilled to spend as much time as possible outside soaking up all that NYC has to offer!
I've already crossed a few activities off my spring bucket list, including playing mini golf on Pier 25 (which is so cool, since it's literally right on the Hudson River) and taking long walks through Central Park - how pretty is this magnolia tree?
This weekend will include a Kentucky Derby party and more time spent exploring other NYC neighborhoods!
New favorite appetizer: Chickpea/pomegranate/mint bruschetta
At the most recent meeting of my friends' Crockpot Club, someone came up with this amazing new spin on bruschetta and I was instantly hooked on its tasty spring flavors! Simply combine chickpeas and pomegranate seeds in a bowl, chop up some fresh mint and scallions, toss with some olive oil, salt, and pepper, and serve over crostini. This is definitely going to be a staple at my upcoming alfresco meals!
Is anyone else hooked on this adorable iPhone app? Basically, you can build your own personal emoji, and then download a keyboard that features your emoji avatar in tons of custom images that can easily be texted to your friends. I have literally laughed out loud at some of the witty emojis that are available through this app, so do yourself a favor and download it right away. After all, Bitmoji did a pretty awesome job of turning M and me into avatars...do you recognize us up there? :)
