Sunday Brunch In Albany: Iron Gate Cafe

Now that I have a full-time job, (like a real grown up) I love to relax and enjoy my weekends even more than I ever have in the past. Which means I tend to sleep in and stay in bed as late and as long as possible. Peeking my head out from under the covers just enough to sip some coffee is acceptable as long as I don't spill, right? 
I'm also a huge fan of weekend brunch. Just being able to sit down in a cute restaurant or tiny cafe, while drinking an extra spicy Blood Mary and enjoying a delicious brunch dish sounds wonderful, doesn't it?!
Since my mom was coming to visit and I hadn't seen her in quite some time, I wanted to take her to a place I knew we'd both enjoy together. So, we hopped in my car and I drove a couple of minutes to the Iron Gate Cafe. I've been here once before this past fall and it was love at first sip... and bite.

Wish List # 1

Just the other day I was talking to one of my girlfriends about some of the 'things' I wanted to purchase at some point in the future. So...to keep my thoughts wants on track I've decided to start creating regular wish list posts.

1) Wildfox Pajamas

Albany's Best Subs And A Picnic In The Park

One of my favorite things about summers in Albany is having a picnic in Washington Park. After being stuck indoors and staring at a computer screen all day yesterday I wanted nothing more than to be spending the evening outside enjoying the beautiful sunny weather. And whats better then enjoying a picnic in the park?!
The answer is nothing.

Troy's Confectionery Wine Bar

On Saturday I decided to just relax and treat myself to a 'me day'. Which meant giving myself a manicure and facial (with some of my favorite products) while catching up on a few of my favorite shows(current favorites: Mistresses, Rookie Blue, and re-watching Grey's Anatomy). Later in the day I met up with my lovely friend Alexa (make sure you check out her adorable blog) where we went to The Charles F. Lucas Confectionery & Wine Bar

Twin Time: Millerton, NY

I recently made my way down to Millerton, NY where I spent the day with my darling twin. Just walking around, enjoying the sun and taking in all the adorable little town had to offer us.
