what I’m into right now – 3.13.17

this weekend….

Friday, we met up with my sister Felicia and her fiancé Ben. We had dinner at a local spot (I got the veggie burger and split the fried green tomatoes with Lu), and then went to see Get Out, the new movie created by Jordan Peele (a comedian/actor/writer we love.) I REALLY recommend it, it was a thriller with funny jokes nestled in between the movie’s scariest parts. we hadn’t seen a movie in a really long time, so it was a great Friday night. we got back around 11pm and passed out.

Saturday, my sister, Lu and I went to our weekly vinyasa yoga class in Jersey City. I’m so impressed by how into yoga Lu has gotten. he loves how much more flexible he feels, he’s really noticing the after benefits. after that, we met up with Ben (Felicia’s fiancé) for our weekly standing date at Beechwood Cafe for breakfast. after that, I cleaned up the apartment a bit, I organized the pantry (something I’ve been putting off for FOREVER), and then we went to see an apartment at an open house. we’re currently looking for more space (we’ve been in a 1BR for so long and have accumulated a LOT.) then, we drove to Chatham, NJ to spend time with our friends and their daughter who turned two! lots of cake, lots of adorable kids, and then we headed back home around 8:30pm, rented Passengers, and passed out. Passengers was eh… I’d give it a 5/10.

Sunday, we woke up, worked out (I did a 45-minute spin ride), I waved my hair with this hair waver (I’M OBSESSED, it works so well and gives you perfect, easy, flawless beach-y like waves), made breakfast, and then we headed to a coffee shop to do some work. then, we saw another apartment (literally my dream home, but way too expensive), and then we came back home, did some work, and then made dinner and watched our favorite Sunday shows (Big Little Lies, GIRLS, and Crashing.) I also packed, because I’m leaving for Austin tomorrow to got SXSW.

what I’m into RN…

this hair waver… seriously, I used to use the flat-iron on my hair for waves, and this is just so effortless and makes perfect crimped waves. can’t wait to keep experimenting!

this foundation by beauty counter.. it gives the perfect amount of coverage, but doesn’t feel like you’re wearing makeup. it covers up all my blemishes!

just bought these cole haan sandals in the sandshell color… they are the world’s comfiest shoes, and I can’t wait to wear them with cropped jeans in the spring!

I want to go here with my girlfriends soon.. it’s a place where you can build your own lipstick shade. I never wear lipstick, because I’m so bad at picking the right shade, why not build a custom color for my skin tone?! DONE.

see you next week!

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
