Oh, Governors Island. I had been wanting to ride bicycles around it ALL SUMMER and time was running out! So when my sister and my mom came to town, I decided we would go for a little spin. And it’s really not bad – $15 for two hours on a bike. You really don’t need more than that since the island isn’t so big. Here we are taking a little rest to watch the trapeze school on the island:

It looks like fun.

Also fun in general is hanging out with my momma. Here I am looking like I’m trying to smush her:

And yes, that is the statue of liberty in the back.

Yay, close up of my face with momma in the background.

Vroom vroom!

And also I really liked my handle bars on my bike with a heart on the bell:

And that’s my Tumblr bag. Of course. I like going to Governors Island.

Here I am with my mom and older sister at Jane’s Carousel in downtown/Dumbo Brooklyn. If you know anything about me you might know that I have a slight thing for carousels. They’re magical and the horses are so pretty. I love the colors and the gold and the lights. And it’s fun to play pretend.

So Jane’s Carousel finally opened this past weekend after being in a studio since the 80’s getting restored. I had walked by it in its studio two years or so ago so it was really exciting to see it finally in action. Since my mom and Emily were here, I had some partners in crime that I knew would check it out with me.

Here’s my mom and I getting ready for the ride to begin. My mom is holding the $2 card that you buy and they scan to let you in. Each one has apicture of a horse in it and it’s kind of cool. Also, $2 is not bad, actually. Also, I basically have this exact picture except with Kayti on a carousel in Chicago. Nice.

Emmy Boo is making a kissy face.

Since it’s official opening on Friday (and leading up to it) I had probably read every article about it on blogs and looked at every picture and everywhere I looked made me actually confused about exactly where it was – I knew it was between the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge but I had a hard time visualizing the space it was in so this picture should hopefully give you the right effect:

There you can see Brooklyn Bridge behind it and the glass case it’s in. Ah, I’m so happy it’s finally out and working! See you again very soon, I’m sure, Jane’s Carousel.

This is one of my favorite pictures from my lil sis visiting me in New York this past week. Here she is at Kid Robot with a new friend.

And here we are at Prime Meats for lunch. We do look like we are related at all.

And here is Alexandra eating a lemon ice from a random bakery while walking down Court Street in Cobble Hill. Family time is fun.

Okay, so maybe Thanksgiving was last week but you’re going to have to get over it for five seconds and look at all this good food!

Thanksgiving is the best. Lots of family and lots of food. And lots of Lions football but I’m not going there this time. :) Always love my Lions!

This year, Thanksgiving was at my cousin’s house in Rochester, Mi and there were 8.5 billion people and 8.5 billion dishes. Above you see turkey and mashed potatoes with green been caserole coming up from the back. There was this guy there I’ve never met before and he was like, “Why are you taking pictures of the food?” Um, hellooooooo! Haha. He was nice. ANYWAY.

Would you like some ham? Sweet potatoes? Carrots? The most amazing salad ever with strawberries and walnuts? Seriously, the salad. My aunt makes it every year and every year I love it. Yay thanksgiving!

Here is an added bonus of my little sister looking completely thrilled. It was during the part when you’ve got your plate all ready but you’re not sure if it’s rude or not to start eating. Ha.

Here is one of the lovely desserts. There were all kinds of pies and mini pies and who knows what but above is some sort of oreo creation and oreos are always so fab.

And here’s a piece of that action. Followed by some homemade pumpkin ice cream!

Pumpkin ice cream! Geeze, looking at these pictures makes me feel so worthless. I’m 25 and all I do is show up! I think my Dad brings a bottle of wine… so there’s that. We definitely weren’t lacking anything at this meal, but still. Maybe next year I’ll bring the wine. Haha.

And here’s one more pictures of my little sister trying to tame one of the thousand dogs that were running around. Oh, and if you’re wondering yes, she is dressed like an elf, and no that’s not a usual thing (someone did ask us that) but we dressed like elves for the Lions game this year. It was fun! We even had little elf hats. I brought mine back to New York just incase, you know, I need it one day or something.

Happy weekend!
