In Which I Attempt To Be A Classy Lady

Hello there! Well, I've really had such a lovely weekend. For Zak's birthday, I bought him tickets for a performance of Mozart and Beethoven by the New York Philharmonic. Yesterday, we went to the performance, and my goodness it was wonderful! We both had a great time, and I was double happy because Zak really enjoyed it (he's a big fan of classical music!). We spent the day in the city around Lincoln Center, and I took some photos to document. So, I'll keep this short (since a super fun weekend means a super lame Sunday of home work) and proceed to show you too many pictures.

Hooray! It was quite cool to see the Fashion Week building, even though I didn't get to go in or anything.


I didn't get any good photos of my classy lady outfit (A black dress, gray sweater, and blue heart tights) since it was cold and windy and AWFUL outside.

DIY heart tights!

A blurry photo, inside Avery Fisher Hall

Pre-dinner red velvet cupcake from Buttercup Bakery! (We had Crumbs AFTER dinner :) )

Another blurry picture, of Zak! This was taken at the restaurant we went to, Whym.

Me, at Whym, eagerly awaiting delicious food!

Delicious food! Zak and I both had yummy chicken pot pie. I forgot to take a picture of our appetizer (pulled duck sliders) because I was too busy EATING THEM. Seriously, they were delicious and gone within about five seconds. Note, there also aren't any photos of the after dinner cupcakes we ate...

Wehn we got home, I wanted to try to take a decent picture of the two of us, since we were both looking spiffy, but this proved to be difficult. So, we just took pictures like this...


And, of course, this


Hope you all had swell weekends!
