This was my reward. Two more blue pieces!!!!!!
So....back to New York......I still can't believe I met Terri. For those of you who know her online, she is sweeter in person. Very real, funny, and has a great personality. No facade for that gal. Although we only stopped at a few shops, there are tons of them in one area of the fashion district, so plan on a few days at least just for that.
After we tore ourselves away from Tinsel Trading we were on our way to eat which I had forgotten we needed to do from all the excitement, we stopped at M&J Trimming. I don't know what to say except take a brown bag to hyperventilate into or you will faint. Walls upon walls of any trim you could imagine. We only saw a tiny area as it was crowded and just too overwhelming after Tinsel Trading. We did select a few items and I asked this super nice guy, Julio0 Lopez, if I could get a photo of him and the trims. We had him up and down the ladder several times, but nothing compared to the times he will be climbing on our return trip. Thank you Julio! A must see if in NY for sure!!!!
We found the pizza place Dawn had eaten at before and sat down to refresh our bodies because our minds had no hope, we were dazed at the offerings we had just seen, not being able to absorb it all in one take. I saw a Bud sign and decided I would have one as I was so thirsty and didn't want any more water or anything sweet. It was the best tasting refreshment I could imagine at the time. Of course the second drink wasn't as good, or the third, fourth.... I'm not a beer drinker but I do like an ice cold Bud once in a while. My dad would let us take a sip of his when we were little and it just stuck with me. I do keep a bottle in my pantry for when the urge strikes, usually after a hot day of gardening if I remember to chill it that is. I know I look like a red faced alcoholic in these photos, but the gals can vouch for me, it was a hot day and I didn't finish the bottle. Besides, Terri is drinking wine....:-)
We hugged and went our separate ways. I didn't want Terri to be walking around town alone but she assured me she does it often with no problems. Dawn and I headed toward the subway but stopped at Magnolia Bakery to take some treats back to the hotel to sample.
Before we went to sleep we decided since the train wasn't running into the city we would just try for an earlier flight. We hated to leave, but didn't want to get into the city and not find a way back to catch our flight and besides, I met Terri and shopped at Tinsel trading and met Marcia Ceppos, what more could I ask for? It was an amazing trip to NY and so memorable that I won't ever forget it even if I live to be 100.
Goodbye New York!
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
