Last Friday, Jim and I took our friends Gina and Mark to MOMA and then headed slightly cross-town to Times Square.  The street artist JR currently has the Inside Out Project set up there and we wanted to check it out and hopefully get to participate.

JR is best known for his portraits, so as part of this project he’s taking portraits of New Yorkers throughout the 5 boroughs and installing them in areas around the city.  To make the process crazy efficient, they have a fully outfitted photography studio truck, so they’ve been moving the truck from neighborhood to neighborhood.  If you visit their Facebook Page, the portraits done around the Rockaways and other Sandy stricken areas are so powerful it makes me well up.  I highly recommend checking it out.

We had heard the photo truck was in Times Square so we took a quick walk over to see if we could participate.  Sadly, they weren’t there due to a 10k race being set up for the weekend.  But we still had a great time enjoying the incredible weather and checking out all the portraits pasted to the sidewalks.

Gina and I also wanted to take the opportunity to take our own portraits amongst the portraits.  How meta, right?

The Inside Out Project is supposed to be in Times Square through May 10th. Jim and I are still hoping to make it there one day after work to get ours done. If you participate you have the option to either have it pasted at the site, or to take it home with you. We’d love to have the portraits for our apartment, so fingers crossed we’ll be able to make it happen!

Anniversary Love

Wedding 2008

Four years ago today, I married my best friend and the love of my life.

Today’s outfit post is a special one. This is what I wore on my wedding day. Looking through all the photos all these years later was such a treat remembering back to that big day in my life.

My dress was that classic scenario where myself and everyone around me knew it was “the one” once I walked out of the dressing room wearing it. It was stunning. It’s a Priscilla of Boston design. I’m so sad to hear they’ve since closed their salons. I tried on so many dresses and loved their designs the most out of everyone’s. They were very modern, yet classic at the same time. They also weren’t overly girlie or fussy. I’m a total tomboy at heart, and wedding dress shopping was a huge source of anxiety for me because of all the bows and ruffles and such. This dress was perfect.

I originally did not want to wear a veil, but it meant a lot to my father so I chose to do it for him with the condition I would only wear it for the ceremony, and that it would not cover my face. Funny thing is I made the decision if I was going to wear one, it was going to be HUGE. Here you can see how dramatic my veil was, as well as the train of my dress. It was really a showstopper.

My earrings were a gift from Jim for my birthday the summer prior to the wedding, and they were perfection. They’re a Miriam Haskell design.

Jim, I know you e-stalk my blog, and wanted to let you know how much I love you and how honored I am to be called your wife. You are my everything. And every October 4th I think of that picture perfect day we held hands as we left the altar and walked into the next phase of our amazing lives together.

Love you the most.

After taking last week off from blogging and other social engagements, I seem to have finally caught back up and gained control of my life again.  I re-prioritized and set goals for myself both professionally and personally for the next three months, and also over the weekend finally took care of a bunch of household chores I’ve been putting off.  It feels so amazing to check to-do’s off my list!

I’ve decided for the next few months I’m going to try a new strategy to my weekends.  I’m hoping to keep one day, usually a Saturday specifically to do chores and knock off a few tasks to complete long-term projects.    The other day, most likely Sunday, will be completely free to either relax or do something fun!  That way I’m still getting my much-needed downtime without sacrificing any household productivity.

So after getting all my Saturday to-do’s accomplished, I took to the “corner” (what I refer to the corner chaise of my couch) to sit down and read my Kindle.  One of my three-month goals is to have read three books.  I couldn’t get more than a page in without Portia barging in on me, wanting to play fetch or cuddle!

Needless to say, cuddling with Portia and a Real Housewives of New York City marathon wound up taking priority over reading.  But that’s what my Sunday “Funday” is for, whatever I feel like doing at that moment.

How did you spend your weekend?
