Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue... or Brooklyn

Hello hello! Sorry for the horrendous lack of posting. I was on vacation for a nice week and a half long stretch. The vacation was a much needed and appreciated break. The last time I took a week off from work was back in November, so it was nice to unplug, especially considering I work in computers.
We spent the first half of the vacation visiting NYC, and more specifically, our group of BFFs in Brooklyn. It's only been 2 1/2 years since we moved away from our little hood of Cobble Hill Brooklyn to the suburbs of Toronto, but so much has changed since we were gone! I forget that everything moves faster there, and changes which would take 10 years anywhere else happen in just 1 or 2 years there.
We left NY with our pockets considerably lighter (c'mon who doesn't shop while in NYC?) DH picked up the MacBook Air he'd been lusting after along with some new threads from Brooklyn Industries. Maya made her inagural the American Girl store and walked out with a mini version of her and some outfits for the mini-Maya. And I made a trip to Anthropologie. Okay, so maybe it's just a little lame that I went to a store that we have an hour away here. But here's my logic -- how awesome is it to buy something that I love which will forever remind me of our pilgrimage back to NYC and Brooklyn? I knew you guys would understand!
While we were gone, DH's uncle flew down to stay with my in-laws on a spur of the moment visit, so we returned to a whirlwind of family events. Then we took off again for a couple days of R&R in Muskoka (cottage country) which was just lovely. We spent our days swimming, canoeing, jet skiing (and oh my, that was exhilarating!) and just watching the scenery.
