As you’ll see from this week’s background (a screenshot of my instagram), the Konter fam released some pretty major news last week. My brother and sister-in-law are expecting a visit from the stork in August! I am so very happy for them and know they will make the best parents. I also plan to be the best aunt. Ever.
- NYC hosted the Super Bowl this year and turned all of Broadway from 34th to 47th Street into Super Bowl Boulevard. It was a great way to get the city excited, and how can you not be excited when there’s a giant toboggan run?
- After wearing contacts since I was about 11 years old, my eyes are pretty tired. My peepers dry out easily and could use a break. I figured if I bought a second pair of glasses, I would be inclined to wear them more often. Having two pairs makes them feel more like an accessory rather than a nerdy obligation. For my new pair I went straight to Warby Parker. Just look at their annual report and you’ll see what makes them such a fun company. Also great is the price – all glasses are just $95. And they’re socially conscious: for every pair you buy, they give a pair to someone in need. Don’t think you’re getting the ugly glasses, either. They’re so stylish they have lots of celeb fans. So for just $95 you get to look good and do good. Did I mention they set up their flagship store as a library? Swoon.
- This was not the best Super Bowl ever. I was hoping for a Broncos win since my former Dawgs Knowshon and Champ are on the team, but they were brutally massacred. It was a pretty boring game to watch, other than the halftime show (I heart Bruno Mars). I did, however, have fun at the Super Bowl party I went to. I’ve only ever watched the Super Bowl on friends’ couches, with lots of unhealthy dip and pizza on the coffee table in front of me. This year I went to a party at a club hosted by a magazine. There were go go dancers, open bar, a dj, and a performance by DMC. It was aggressive for a Sunday night, but nice to have so many distractions when the game was kind of a snoozefest.
