Hi Everyone! I must admit I’ve been unmotivated to do much posting as I’ve been mostly trying to stay in and stay warm lately. Pretty much I wear jeans, boots, and sweaters… not very exciting! I did  pick up this fabulous pair of waterproof boots that have made it not quite so terrible, because at least I think they are stylish. And they keep my feet warm and dry, even better. Available in more colors and sizes here as well. Looks like another storm is on the way too, nooooo! I am happy to see the sun more here in NY, but this cold weather is starting to wear me down.

Enough complaining, I’m not in Minnesota after all, let’s get to the happy stuff! Last Thursday I was very excited to go see “In Conversation: Tim Gunn and Valerie Steele” at the Brooklyn Museum. Basically they sort of interviewed each other and then took audience questions – so cool! I love Tim Gunn and his books, and he was wonderful to see in person.

If you ever get to NY, take some time to go to the Brooklyn Museum, such a gorgeous place with a lot to see. We went up to see the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit and it was truly amazing. Cool effects, such as faces on mannequins being projected and moving – crazy.

All last week I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of my cousin, Lisa, and good friend, Sam. They flew in Saturday to celebrate the Super Bowl here in NY. They didn’t go to the game but thought it would be fun to come anyway, and Sam got a great deal on tickets with her Alaska points. And our Seahawks won!! Yipee!! Sorry Bronco fans… I’m actually not  a big football fan, but it was still fun to watch, especially with our visitors, and we had a fun party at our place.
