We think we're Mets fans/not Yankees fans
We don't think we'll ever be Red Bulls fans cuz their fans are rude
We're forever IKEA fans but that doesn't mean I'm excited to figure out how to turn these and a stack of plywood into a dresser.
So far, definitely fans of autumn weather in New York. Everyone told us and I think everyone was right.
This guy is our #1 fan. He hangs out on our fire escape or in our tree all day long.
Oh, and 6 months of marriage, we're major fans of that.

Fashion Week

In honor of fashion week happening a few miles away, I've been shifting my netflix viewing to fashion based shows/movies. Here's what I've seen so far:
Sort of a stretch but hey, the mom is a fashion designer.
 About the high-fashion modeling industry, I liked this one. Even though it's sad.
 This was just meh. But it was sorta a Project Runway movie so I loved that aspect.
 I could watch this movie every day. She's so fascinating to watch.

My new nephew is cuter than your new nephew

Anders is here! He's been here for 11 days and we're all so excited. I can't get over his perfect coloring and round everything. Adoption is a miracle on top of any baby being a miracle. It's just incredible. Anyway, we love him a lot and I can't wait to see him in real life and not just on a computer screen.

Rockaway Beach Baby

For Regan's birthday/day off we went to Rockaway Beach (it's to the south/east of us in Queens and about 75 minutes away by subway, not bad at all). It wasn't very hot but I'm sure glad we went when we did cuz it's rain on the forecast for as many days as we can see now. We like the beach for being the beach but, admittedly, our main motivation for choosing Rockaway was this taco stand. And it did not disappoint. We ate there walking to and from the beach. Really the beach in between was more of a technicality. (okay not really. but sorta.) They also had italian ice and a veggie stand and a surf shop. All attached to each other. But we couldn't really be bothered by those when we had tacos to eat.

When we got home we got Thai take-out and ate it on our roof (so new york, right?). It felt so good up there (we don't have AC) that we both accidentally, promptly fell asleep after eating and woke up in a panic that it'd been hours. And anyway, I think it's safe to say that this September 5th, our lives are better than they were last September 5th. Here's to keeping that trend going for about infinity more years!

Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Saturday we wandered around all day. Starting at the farmer's market and ending at an over-priced mexican dinner (but they had the best/teeniest empanada appetizer thing). I'm starting to think everything we eat here will be 'over-priced' and I should just get over it. Our least favorite part was store and our favorite part was the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I haven't figured out how to bring a camera everywhere we go so here are 2 phone pictures.
Check these out! I have no idea what they are but they're growing out of the ground and we loved them.
Regan defiling nature for the sake of love
p.s. the brooklyn IKEA is the craziest scene I've ever been a part of. Hopefully that's just cuz it was Labor Day Saturday?
