Lily's mom was having a party with a black and white dress code and I took the theme farther than it should be allowed to go. I mean, I was giving some people dirty looks for having the slightest touch of blue in their outfit. Except for my eyes which I regrettably did not have any contacts for, I was in black and white, baby! But I mean, c'mon people, even the DOG followed the dress code!

The Dough Girl's Helper
Went to visit Lily who has a summer job baking and selling cookies. It sounds so perfect for her, I just can't believe it. Now if only she could get paid for watching movies and talking about Seth Rogen and she would REALLY have her perfect job.
Some of her own work!
She's also quite the saleswoman. Just look at how delighted that kid looks!
The World's A Stage, Clearly.
Thanks for the comments on the play pictures I put up in my last post! The four performances all went really well, the last one being the best. I miss it already. Above is a picture from a scene that I was in. In the front with Pikachu is my brother. He played Silvius and I played Corin, so I was kind of like his sidekick. It was the first time we really worked together in a show, so it ended up being a lot of fun. Photo cred to Chris Randazzo.
I Had Forgotten What New York Is Like...
...to new eyes that is! It's kind of delightful pretending to see it for the first time. Laura, a really sweet girl from Austria is visiting America for the first time and a few of my friends and I have been showing her around some sights on the East Coast. You can read more about it here on my completely lovely friend Sarah's blog. If you haven't checked her blog out yet, definitely do. Her posts are such a joy to read with really great descriptions and some ultra fabulous pictures. Okay. Gushing OVER. Moving on.
Even seeing yellow taxis completely thrilled her. And believe me, the excitement really was contagious.
Her first NYC subway experience...
The Brooklyn apartment which she is staying in with her old family friend was so fabulous. So much space and literally every room was painted a different vibrant color.
