I (WANT) Need a Smartphone


Let me explain this title.....  I was at a museum today snapping some pics on my small basic phone....then i wanted to put them on my blog, so I had to :
1)  Text pics to Milos's iPhone 
2)  Save pics to iPhone
3)  Email pics from Milos's iPhone to my email account 
4)  Download pics from my email account to the computer 
5)  Upload pics from the computer to the blog

----- Am I missing something here?  Shouldn't this be easier?  I could get an iPhone but I refuse to pay that much for a data package :)  I choose to mooch off of my boyfriend!  Haha!

Well -- I went though all that hassle to bring you this amazing world-class sketch from none other than yours truly!  

This is probably the best drawing I have ever done -- I plan to brag about this for years to come, frame it, and hang it somewhere prominent :)

Today, Kendall and I started our Sunday morning the usual way -- with Peacefood Cafe -- only the most wonderful vegan cafe in the world!  We go so often that they know us there -- it is pretty cool -- it is our Monk's (for all you Seinfeld fans).  We then walked through the park to go to the Frick Museum

 -- an awesome former home of an art collector with all the art on the walls!  There were all my faves -- Vermeer, Manet, Monet, Renoir, Ingres..... 
 After we browsed the collection they were having a free sketch in the courtyard -- the museum provided the materials and you supplied the creativity.  Kendall and I spent some time sketching away -- this is one of the reasons I love NYC -- museums and spontaneous fun :)

You can see Kendall in the far left sketching -- our mother and her are REAL artists

Kendall and I concluded our perfect Sunday morning with a stop in G Free NYC ( a gluten free store near out apt) for Sample Sundays -- I tried some delicious gluten-free pizza and picked up some brown rice pasta.  I have been wanting to try it for a while, so I will let you guys know how it is :)  No, Kendall nor I are gluten-free but we like new foods and experimenting :)


Topping off the perfect Sunday was a run with the boyfriend to test out the new shoes ( I think they did well!!) and some NYC street food :)  

Please excuse the Diet Coke can in the background -- it was a moment of weakness.........
and with that, hope you have a great start to your week!

Love, Allison
