How are you? How was the weekend? Ours was good. P and I went to the gym, to a birthday party and then we hung around and relaxed all day yesterday and I did a Target run (exciting, I know! But Target is Mecca and I almost do a happy dance in the parking lot). I’m in the planning stages of P’s 4th birthday and last night he asked Straw for a pet cobra for his gift. Straw said, “but it can kill you” and P said, “no, it would be behind glass in my room.” I think he thinks we can have a collection of animals over here like at the aquarium. It’s going to start looking like Noah’s Ark if we have a dog, a rabbit, and now a snake. Well….we’d have to have two of everything (no thanks! I’m not cleaning any more animal crap out of cages. I’m a mom, not a zoo keeper). I’m also starting lots of fun photo shoots, trying to lose 15 pounds and convinced I’m going through menopause (hello? Night sweats anyone? Probably doesn’t help that I’m under a down comforter when it’s been 75+ degrees out).
A few things for your Monday:
Anyone see Ray Donovan last night? Holy smokes! I could barely watch it it was so disturbing but the show is soo good!

The portrait blog, “Humans of New York.” by photographer Brandon Stanton is pretty cool.
