We walked around to check out the Christmas decorations tonight thinking about how much we LOVE this city. This is one of my favorite parks- and its really close to our house. There is also a huge fountain in the middle and then this arch.
Check out the awesome tree in the middle. I love Christmas trees- Could have something to do with my Mimi and Grandaddy owning a Tree Farm my whole life :) they sale Christmas trees for hundreds of dollars on the side of the streets here. I may look into shipping one from their farm next year- It would be cheaper. Insane.
I loved all the trees in the city. Favorites- Rockefeller (obv.), Stock exchange, Seaport, and Washington Square (pictured)- Have I mentioned I love the city?William looks so New Yorkerish in his overcoat and scarf. Love it.
Will went to Utah for the weekend to get our winter clothes a few weeks ago and this is what I did to pass the time. . .
I LOVE THE STREET FAIR- and this weekend it was on OUR street!! I was so happy. For blocks there were vintage clothing, antiques, jewelry, fruit, hats, cheeses, ties, bags, clothes... oh my and so much more- I will do another post later with more of my shots, but these are the highlights. This man has apparently been doing this every weekend for years- He sold me this star. I really just wanted something orange for our apt and it stuck out.
I have seen this man's art numerous times and can not think about buying it because I know with a little practice and help I could make it. But I don't- I just keep looking at it at Union Square fair each time. Its sephia colored photos of NYC with masking tape painted brown as a border- but so nice all together.
I wanted this dress really bad.
I went to East River park in an attempt to be social at a ward BBQ- but I ended up taking pictures the whole time instead. It was so cool over there.
Then the real adventure began- see this weekend was my time at home to redo our apartment- I lived on Craigslist trying to find a bed that would work for us and this is what I did on a whim. I saw a problem:
Not the smoke detector that I can not fix, but the need for space in an apt that has no closet.
So I bought these.
And a few hours later built this.
I have no idea if we will ever sleep on it- But I was proud of it.
