It’s summer in New York City and I’m having the most fun ever!!!

I know I totally don’t post anymore, but I’ve been busy, and when we move to South Africa, I probably won’t post much, but can I just tell you about all the awesome things I’ve been up to lately?

I got to see M.I.A. at McCaren Pool in Brooklyn. First of all, seeing a concert in an empty swimming pool is kind of amazing. miaThe show rocked. M.I.A. and her little posse were dancing and running all over the place, and they even invited all the ladies in the audience to jump up on stage and dance with her! (I didn’t go up, I was kinda far back, but still, it was super cool).

What else, what else. Andy and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary!

I can’t believe I have been married for a whole year. I feel like such a grown up! We had a lovely date at a restaurant downtown called Blue Hill. They use all fresh, local ingredients, which I love! I’m not a huge soup person but we had a cold asparagus soup that tasted freakin’ fabulous. Yum.

The week earlier CountryGirl & I went to see The Raconteurs.

I was blown away! Honeslty, I don’t really listen to them and I was sort of predisposed to think they were too “alt country” for me, but they’re much more versatile. They have some really beautiful ballads, and some Led Zeppelin-ish sounds—and they’re hot. Very hot.

My birthday is on Tuesday (happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear Alex, happy birthday to me!) happy-birthdayand we’re going to go to Vong, one of those fancy Jean Georges restaurants. It’s supposed to be delish. I don’t really want anything for my birthday, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that one of my nearest-and-dearest buys me an ice cream cake. I live for ice cream cake. It’s true.

And, spotted on the lower east side:

Jenny Humphrey! She was looking coy and sending text messages. I can’t wait for season 2 of Gossip Girl. CountryGirlCityLife: I expect weekly synopses to help keep me clued in while I’m living in my little South African village!

Last on my agenda: pop music. I think it’s the hot summer nights that’s bringing the cheesy pop diva out of me. All I wanna do is Make Love In This Club, In This Club, In This Club, In This Club. Thank you Usher for making me totally obsessed with your ridiculous, annoying song. I’m also digging on both Ashanti & Mariah Carey’s new singles. They make me happy, and that’s all a girl can ask for, right?

    Still can’t believe your going to South Africa. Please let us all know when you go and have a blog about your time there!
    Love the anniversary cuteness – congrats x

  3. You are having SO much fun this summer, I am so jealous….no wait, I was there for half of it! Yay! I can’t believe in a short time span you are going to be across the world being one of those do-good-y people. If you come back all moved, and eating sprouts, and self-righteous and trying to save the world, I will so cut you. 🙂

    When are you leaving? And someone asked if you’re still going to be writing books, but I don’t remember whatyour answer was. So, are you? Even though you won’t be able to post much, please do try. We’d love to see pictures. And it would make such a great story!
