Day 2 - Empire State Building

One last stop before we go home...and this one I approved because seriously that lady better get a new arm...the only time I am going back is if I have to have to...for a secret spy mission to get to the torch...nah they will prolly shoot first and question later
















This was different stain glass















The first look of up top.....I am looking Westish here...look you can see Macy's....seriously going to NY needs to be longer but I have to find a new place to visit...or 3rd times a charm











First shoot of the sun starting to set...yes it took that long to get from NW to WS....it was so crowded up there...nothing like Sleepless in Seattle...heheheh











OKAY tomorrow I will post VIDEO...or umm Friday cuz tomorrow is not cool :(

Day 2 - UGLY Doll

So cute! I had to take a picture with it because Susie loves them and I had to show her I met a real live ice bat :)












The poor kid before me didn't wanna let it go....he loved it!

These only make me think about how fun it would be to have a pillow fight with em















Okay the Columbus day parade was supposed to be on Monday....err they blocked passage ways on 5th so it was hard to get around...and they made me very irritated cuz I was VERY hungry by this point...hehe okay well we stopped in the Disney store right before I we headed over to TGIF...






And on our way doing the tourist thing we had to stop in Grand Central Station...I couldn't tell X-Men but that's okay...I'll just have to watch the movie :) again



Day 2 - FAO Schwarz Lego

Proof that they did exist!!




















*Queue the Star Wars music* Enter Darth Vader!































And Chewie...and I can hear whats his face do the Wookiee call...Oh yeah Jessie :P



























And while I was in the store they had people playing the BIG piano...it was most awesome although I didn't get to play...but if I get one I would only be out 250,000 :) well worth it....oh but I have no place to put it :(



Day 2 - Still in the Toy Store

Here is another one...I would have gotten one but really where would I have put him...in the back with Panda No Way
And look this one has a unicorn with it...see they do exist(ed) hehe but now its stuffed


Day 2 - Explore New York


Wooohooo I found the flee market! I found a magazine that had things to see or places to go in New York sooo hello I grew up going to the swap meet so I had to hit up the flee market. There were cool things there but this is the place I got some red kid mohair yarn and some lt. brown alpaca yarn to make Tia a scarf. The background building is a school...yes we were in a school yard and part of it was in the cafeteria.





Looking around in Central Park. It was alright except I wore flats and got a rock in my shoe. :(















This is 'The Lake'. I had to get a pic of the boat people...the dude on the side turned his face cuz he thought I was gonna take a picture of him ...NO and that lame girl got in my way errr.










OOOOO people running in Central Park. It is better then running in the street...manOman they had pollution.













Strawberry Fields...golly geepers there were so many people there....but it was decorated pretty YAY! In case you are interested Imagine is my favorite song :)

Day 1 - I found Wendy's

After a long very boring flight I found Wendy's. On the plane I knitted some on a sock that has been frogged for now. I brought some magazines which I flipped through and marked things to look up...better pull those out. I also listened to a bunch of pod-casts on my ipod. With all that you would think that I would be content but the fact that I was strapped to a chair for so long was torture...yes I do it at work but I have 3 feet of wiggle room and there it was only inches.
Anyways back to my Wendy's story...Last time I came to New Jersey I ate at the hotel and it was soooo expensive (I know I'm cheap) so I went on a trek to find fast food.



On my way out I saw this. It was all decked out for Halloween. I saw this and thought wow Susie and Daniel would love to have plastic over their door.


The trek back was most tiresome after a long morning and tired feet.

NY sheep and wool

Okay so i was in NY this past week and missed Rhinebeck http://www.sheepandwool.com/ - I got sick on Friday and that was the day I flew back to California. I have been looking at blogs and photos of the event and it was most awesome...maybe i will go to NY next time just for this...although my nephew wants me to take him next time...i told him he had to wait til he was 10. Anyways that Friday I was 13mins away from Rhinebeck checking out the Vanderbilt Mansion. I looked at it on the map and they really did have the Hudson river as their backyard. I'll post pictures later of my trip but for now I need to catch up on emails galore
