Sorry I’ve been mia lately. Did ya miss me? πŸ˜‰

My hubby and I took a little mini-escape to our favorite city, the Big Apple. I would show you photos, but I didn’t take a camera. I wanted to just enjoy “being” and not so much “documenting.”

We saw three Broadway shows, ate at Ellen’s Stardust Diner (fun!), walked and walked and walked (and walked some more!), slept in every day, shopped (a tiny bit), ate (lots), hung out in Central Park (love), went to Mood Fabrics (I’m a Project Runway Junkie), watched the Wall Street protesters from our hotel window after they moved into Times Square, ate cupcakes from *Magnolia* bakery (yum), got drenched in the rain blocks from our hotel and looked like drowned rats (so much fun), and just had such a fun time.

Today, it’s back to crazy town everyday life and nearly-missed school busses. Ahhh, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

My parents are here visiting and my mom wants to go to IKEA and Pottery Barn today. Being the dutiful daughter that I am, I guess I’ll take her. πŸ˜‰ I haven’t been to IKEA in a few months so I’m hoping to find some inspiration for a few projects. I am going to pick up a cheap rug or two to paint. And I need a few more byholma baskets.

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Be back soon with some projects to share.

    In fact, I was wondering where you were. I didn’t email you or comment ’cause i didn’t want you to think I was stalking you. LOL

    Glad to hear that you were away enjoying yourself.

  8. I lived in NYC for 13 years before moving to LA and I miss the city pretty much every day. Glad you had a great time and got a little break. What shows did you see (that’s the actor in me)?

    • David, we saw How to Succeed in Business…with Daniel Radcliffe and John Laroquette—two thumbs up! Memphis—one thumb up. And Chicago—two thumbs up! Can’t wait to go back! Btw, I thought your part on free agents was great! Sad it’s cancelled but I know something else will come along.
