Here are some of the highlights:
Here's the New York City skyline that I took from the window of the bus as we were driving into the city:
We were so lucky that we got a chance to see the revival of Annie:
Afterwards, we actually got to meet the very talented young lady who played Annie, and she was kind enough to pose for a picture with Katie and Anne:
Can you see Anne all bundled up? - it was very cold and blustery!
John got us reservations at a restaurant that he saw on the travel channel at this hotel:
Inside we found the small restaurant that serves delicious breakfasts, called Norma's:
Their menu was so full of awesome choices:
John picked the chocolate French toast that he had seen on the travel channel Oh my goodness - he could not even finish this decadent delight:
Katie got peanut butter waffles:
And I ordered mango crepes:
They were all absolutely delicious!
Anne, being Anne, had one plain pancake with hot chocolate!
The lobby had a row of lights that look so pretty to me:
And here's Anne looking so cute as can be as she peered into the mirrored walls of the hotel lobby:
I took this photo as John and I looked into the mirrored walls, too! On our 23rd anniversary! I can't believe that we have been married for 23 years.
So naturally, afterwards, I wanted to scrap the photo of the two of us!
I was so happy when I saw Heather Landry's sketch #34! It's perfect for the photo that I want to scrap.
And I also used Color-Me-Scrappy's challenge #34's color scheme to make my page!
(This challenge runs through 3/30/12, so please stop by and check it out.)
Here is the layout I made using both Heather's sketch, and Color Me Scrappy's colors:
I had so much fun using these amazing colors and Heather's wonderful sketch!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you are all enjoying your Friday. I am so happy that it is almost the weekend! We have no plans this weekend and I know we will enjoy just hanging out together.
We were supposed to have sunny skies today, and it started out sunny, but now is cloudy, overcast, and very windy and cold. I guess it's not time for Spring quite yet. but John said that he did see his first robin this morning! Yeah!! Enjoy your day.
