Thursday we headed into Manhattan; it was a gorgeous, sunny day. I can't get over how many beautiful flowers there are throughout the city.
Our first stop was Lion Brand Yarn Studio, where these "flowers" were blooming.
I wanted a picture of Mere in front of the window, but she's not into it, so it's just me. Isn't their display wonderful? It's all knitted, even the astronaut! Am I holding a shopping bag? Why, yes I am, but I got a 25% discount because I'm a member of their Ravelry group! Cool, huh?
I know I took a picture of these door handles last year, but I do love them.
The next stop was M&J Trimming. I had never been there before, and it was overwhelming. This is just one little section of the store. Amazing. And overwhelming.
I needed reviving afterwards, so Mere took me to pinkberry where I ate pomegranate frozen yogurt with fresh blueberries. She noted that it's customary to take food photos before you eat but I couldn't wait. Yummy.
Honestly, we walked for quite awhile before we stopped for lunch, and this time I took the picture before devouring the food. Why don't I ever think to make simple and delicious meals like this one? It was delicious, filling, and light.
And because apparently I can never have enough photos of the Chrysler building, here is another one. But isn't it wonderful looking against the backdrop of the blue sky?
I'll post about the Brooklyn portion of my trip next, but for now, it's off to bath and bed. School is back in session tomorrow!
