On My Radar

I had such a great week... hope you all did too! Working from home is something I'm constantly getting used to. Some days are better than others, but overall it's working for me. The best part is being able to set my own schedule. I definitely have the tendency to work all the time, but I've been taking a couple of hours every afternoon off.

On Monday afternoon, Garrett and I had lunch and walked to the Met where we spent the afternoon. It was such a perfect way to spend the day and I felt totally inspired to get work done for the remainder of the day. I think we're going to try to go to more museums on Monday!

And my favorite ever kind of break? Taking Teddy to the dog park. It's super wonderful to walk him every day. (One long walk and plenty of short walks/adventures during the day.) But the dog park is something I seriously look forward to. If I know the ground won't be wet (he's particular about puddles), the dog park is at the top of my to-do list for breaks. I could legitimately spend HOURS watching Teddy and the other dogs play. It's insanely fun. With his leg completely healed (#hallelujah), he's 100% himself again and totally into playtime. Eight month old puppies sure do have tons of energy!

Garrett and I both love it! (Photo borrowed from G's Instagram.)

Now that the weather is nice, I swear I've been enjoying my days so much more. More light, fewer layers, and lots of activities. YES TO EVERYTHING.

Now... onto what's on my radar!

ONE // Eataly's Nutella Bar

The rumors are true! Eataly just opened up a Nutella bar and it looks like heaven on earth. Eataly is one of my favorite city spots, just steps away from the Flatiron building. I didn't think it could get better, but Nutella? Absolutely can't beat that one! Garrett and I found ourselves having pizza (of course) in Eataly the other night. We decided to check out the Nutella bar. Sadly it was packed, but I confirm that it exists and is in full swing! Can't wait to try it myself.

I was really looking forward to being in one place for a while, but of course the wanderlust has a way of settling into my system again. Can we discuss how perfect these monogrammed passport covers from Logan Real are? I mean... that pink one is basically is basically begging to be taken to Paris, right?

THREE // Sia "Chandelier" Video

A friend who knows my obsession with Dance Moms sent this to me. At first I had NO idea that it was Maddie! I've always kind of leaned towards #teamchloe, but Maddie is clearly a talented little performer. It's a disturbing (in a good way?) video and Maddie pretty much nails it. It's also interesting to see how the Dance Moms girls will leverage the show's success for the rest of their careers!


You know I'm the biggest, late to the game, Harry Potter fan. I went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter a few years ago and loved it. Just read that Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint are getting together for "one last adventure" to film scenes for the new section of the theme park. Florida... here I come.

FIVE // Blind Keller Plays Fetch

And to round out today... talk about adorable and inspiring... A blind dog killing it at fetch. The determination this dog has is just amazing and sweet. Love it.

What's on your radar this week? What's your favorite kind of "break" from work?
