My garden update

Before I did anything.

Took out all the old plants, mulch, and weed prevent fabric used a rake to mix the soil up.
I added in some Peat Moss as well.

Put down new weed prevent fabric

Planted the roses.

Planted the red bell pepper and the cherry tomatoes and put down the mulch

Finished product!

This is a hat I made for the Women's Association Luncheon Hat Auction. They'll be worn at the Run for the Roses most likely. I made several other that night also.

This is my current project. Little peg hooks. I'm always trying to figure out how to get more storage in my house. I think these will help a lot.

My new dishes!

I made this to hold my necklaces.

My new kitchen island!

Easter table!

The new cabinet my daddy and I built (he really built this).

New York, New York

So, my much awaited trip to New York has come and gone.

I had a BLAST! Becky and I did almost every touristy attraction available. We got on the Long Island Railroad every morning between 8:30 and 9:30 and relaxed during the hour and a half ride in.
There's more than this, but really. This is probably too much information already. :)

Then we visited all kinds of different places depending on the day.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art...

The Beach at Fire Island...

Sunset in Long Island

The Famous Arch...

Madame Tussaud's...

Circle Line Cruise...

Photo Walking Tour of Greenwich Village...


Audrey Hepburn lived her while she shot a movie!

We went to Rockefeller Center...

The Statue of Liberty...

The Empire State Building...

Central Park...

That's how you know!!

Radio City Music Hall...

We went to brunch at Thalia before going to see Guys and Dolls with Lauren Graham!

Waiting on Tickets for Guys and Dolls...

Sky Masterson (don't remember his real name).... Isn't he dreamy?

We went to Times Square during the day and at night...

We ate all kinds of dfferent foods...

This is Ethiopian.... Yum!!

Admittedly, no food in this picture, but we ate at Trattoria del Trecolori for dinner for Becky's Birthday Dinner and The food was amazing!! The angry people standing behind us were a little less amazing.

Chicken Taco! Green Bagel sandwich for St. Patty's day!

Indian Food! (again, no food in the picture, but it was really good I promise!)
