i am not planner....i don't like to be the one who makes the schedules.
i don't like to be the one who decides what everyone will be doing.
on trips or in groups i tend to just go with the flow.
or at least i try.
so the only thing i think i said besides "i want starbucks" when deciding where to go
was "i would love to see Fishs Eddy in real life.
i got my wish.
i loved EVERYTHING in here.
this picture is overexposed but those mugs look like notebook paper!!!
(if only they weren't 12 oz. mugs...i need a big mug)
for reals...vintage linens just like at the barn in kansas!
i prefer my barn prices to fishs eddy.
a million milk glass cake stands.
sour apple green hutch?
i loved every detail in this store.
every display piece.
every hand painted sign.
every dish and cup and tea towel.
i could have easily spent another hour here.
but of the four of us....i was the only one freaking out on the inside about how
completely amazing and REDONKULOUS this store was so i bought a t-shirt and we left.
i did not want to.
also i said "i'm going into anthro..." when i found it.
we don't have many fire escapes in kansas....
we walked to the 9/11 Memorial.
it was very quiet in here....right in the middle of the city.
the waterfalls and pools are so big.
i can't imagine what it was like for people in New York City on 9/11.
i looked around and was trying to comprehend it....
all i could think was "i hate that day"
i was far away from new york and i hate that day for me.
i was so scared for my children and my husband.
so i just can't imagine how the people of new york feel.
the people who saw it with their own eyes...who lost family and friends....
i hate that day.
the memorial is beautiful.
it is a lovely place to honor the people who lost their lives.
but it's sickening that it has to be there at all.
evil in this fallen world.
but i was thankful for that beautiful quiet place.
we took a ferry boat to the statue of liberty.
she's lovely... just like i thought.
storms were rolling in.
after the statue of liberty we also took a tour of Ellis Island.
and it poured rain outside.
i did not stay dry.
and i didn't stay very chipper about it either.....
i am a girl.
i don't like to get rained on.
we ate dinner in Little Italy.
it was so weird...they hassle you to get you to come eat at their restaurant?!
begging you to come in...try THEIR food....whadda ya lookin' for tonight folks?
with heavy new york accents.
we chose the ONE place that didn't do that.
and it was yummy.
one more new york post tomorrow.
