sunshine. bikes. egg decorating. dinner. easter.

saturday was dreadful with rain and overcast skies all day. rob and i struggled to be 'back' all day and he was fighting a nasty cold so our day left so much to be desired.
we shopped at century 21 in brooklyn where he scored with a bunch of new basics. i on the other hand busted. no surprise, i usually hate that kind of store considering my window/mannequin/magazine/picture shopping style. i found nothing and almost purchased bras and panties so not to leave empty handed. i resisted.
we had dinner with anne, pat, and andrea with last minute planning at dram shop. fine time.

the chalk board outside our local wine shop today read, "the thing about days like yesterday is that they make you appreciate days like today". i couldn't agree more. today was wonderful...

easter sunday was beautiful. as always, rob coaxed me out of bed.
he was lucky to have an easter basket waiting for him. well, for us...

he immediately took a bite of the bunny's ear. other than candy, the bunny brought a new wine bottle opener (ours broke last week) two new coffee mugs, and a candle

we headed to the closed farmers market (oops) and then home to get our bikes in working order for spring. rob told me as we came close to the end of our little stroll that he wished he could just walk around the neighborhood with me all day. the moon!

an outing to the newly reconstructed brooklyn bridge park took place of my run or trip to yoga...

i am so in love with this park and as always, with the brooklyn bridge. i hate that they closed the green area between the two bridges but the construction there makes me think it will soon reopen and be even better than before.
the area is amazing and perfect for bikers and pedestrians alike. andrea and i had iced coffee while rob sipped a limonatta. it was lovely.

an intense easter egg decorating contest consumed the next bit of our day. we were happy to be inside when the heavy, vertical rain came down.

we, in true palermo fashion, held a competition on the egg decorating. we each chose our fav of the three we designed and presented our competition on facebook. top left to top right: planet earth by me, goth egg by andrea, dino egg by rob, and blue/green horizon by anne. anne won. i lost. my egg is not justified in pictures.  

we finished our day with dinner at kaz a nou in prospect heights with our brooklyn family...
