Odds and Ends...

   I don't know about you guys, but I am so happy about Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom's engagement! I never would've seen it coming, but the more I think about it, the more I realize how they could possibly be the "it" couple of 2010! I never even knew they were dating until I found out they were getting married. Either they did a good job keeping their relationship low-profile, or I am just really bad at following who's dating who in Celebville! This may be a little premature, but I can't wait to see how adorable their kids will be! With her dimples and his curly hair, they are sure to have cute ones!

Pictures from NYC...
The night before we left for the city, we stopped in North Adams were my uncle lives. We went to his gallery opening and Maddie and I were bartenders for the evening!

The art behind us in this picture was my favorite because each drawing built off of another. You could see the process the artist was going through when you compared them all.

I loved the shadow cast by this sculpture, but unfortunately you can't see it very well in this picture.  
(To see more of Weronika Zaluska's artwork, you can go to her website.)

The next day we took a train from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Station. It was my first train ride ever!

The view from our taxi on our way to Naomi's concert.
It was my first taxi ride too! I know...I need to get out more!!

After the concert, we took lots of pictures outside of the Lincoln Center.

Maddie, sitting pretty!
The water fountain was so refreshing to sit by because it felt like it was 90 degrees outside!

Passing the time while waiting to get back into air-conditioning!

After everyone had taken a gazzillion pictures, checked into their hotel rooms at the Westin, and freshened up, we all headed to Patsy's, a great Italian restaurant. The waiters were friendly, my gnocchi was really tasty, and the water was the best I've ever had!!

That night, my uncle took the three of us to Time Square. I didn't want to leave!!

We didn't go into Madame Tussaud's so this was the closest I could get to Johnny Depp!

You can tell Naomi doesn't have the same opinon of him that I do!!

The lights were spectacular!

We went to the four-floor Forever was mere shopping paradise!!

To end our lovely night of traipsing around Times Square, we bought gelato!

The next day, my grandparents took me and Maddie to the Time Warner Center to get lunch at the Whole Foods store there. I loooove that place! You can find just about anything there! We had a nice picnic in Central Park eating the Indian food we got.

We took a stroll around the park with my grandma and rode on the carousel.
We finished off the day with a trip to the Guggenheim Museum and one last visit to Grand Central Station before we were back on our train home.  

Some inspiration for my current project...

   I'm trying to make a denim vest, but I'm a little worried it'll come out a bit tacky, but we'll see! I really need more pieces like vests in my wardrobe because they add more to summer outfits and keep you looking put together, without making you too hot.
