black bean brownies?? mar.10

whaaaatttt???? these sound crazy.

"They have the consistency of cheesecake, and I’m pretty sure they taste like a cross between delicious and a mouthful of angels singing James Brown." i'm intrigued.

the rain in spain falls mainly on the plains, mar.10

the pouring rain, 45mph winds, sore throat and runny nose couldn't keep me from my saturday lady date with esther (and brunch with beaus).

some things that really made my day...

*i finally found my dream pen necklace, but in turquoise and for only 12 bones with my employee discount.
*the sunroom at cooper hewitt- even on a grey, rainy day
*postal co. notebooks at the museum giftshop
*getting up-close and personal with the mulleavy sisters gorgeous work...shimmery spider web tights, whimsical rib cage frocks
*prune! brunch was amaaazing- the beau and i split the dutch apple pancake and soft scrambled eggs. the 5 of us shared a plate of mini marveilles- fried scones in powdered sugar, mmm. plus they played an awesome, janet jackson-heavy, assortment of 90s tunes throughout our meal.

then a quick jaunt to the jack spade broome st store for some handsome new duds for boo

and finally we made it all the way uptown to cooper hewitt, where i fell in love with this sun room and rodarte's impeccable designs

i wish i could say i ran home when my head started feeling like it would explode, but instead it took us an hour just to get to Houston and another 45min to find out that the W.4th station was experiencing a power outage and no F trains were running in either direction! after a 2+ hour trip home i quickly plopped down on the couch and cozied up to my audrey hepburn collection and chicken soup with kale. feeling a teensy bit better today.

rainy saturday, mar.10

it's raining and pouring outside but i'm so happy about my soggy saturday: brunching at prune with e, taking advantage of my employee discount and the catching the rodarte exhibit at cooper hewitt on its last weekend!

the mulleavy sisters are so amazing...

hope you have a lovely one.
