RECENTLY IN NEW YORK CITY


In and around midtown on a chilly spring day. 
All photos were taken on April 19 with my cell phone.

BEST OF THE WEEKEND 4.28.17







What's up, friends?
Welcome to Best of the Weekend!

I'm finding it hard to believe that May is just around the corner.
It's been so chilly for most of April,
that I keep forgetting it's spring!
This weekend, however, will be quite warm.
I wish I could get my deck set up, 
but we are having some repairs done to it,
and then it will be power-washed and re-stained,
so it will have to wait.
I will, however, break out the hummingbird feeder this weekend!
Can't wait to see the first of those little birdies stop by for a drink!


Put your party shoes on - Best of the Weekend starts NOW!


We'd appreciate it if you'd follow your co-hosts!

TWO WEEKS IN PHOTOS: 4.9.17 - 4.22.17



PHOTO DIARY 4.9.17 - 4.22.17 | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes


The last two weeks were largely defined by Passover
(lotsa matzoh),
and spring flowers. 
Yeah, sometimes life can be exciting like that.
But, I'll gladly take it.
Our Passover seder was a small group of family, 
and with lots of laughs (and lots of wine). 
The joy of witnessing the rebirth of spring never gets old.
It cheers me to see the buds on the trees,
and the spring bulbs blooming. 
The culmination of the second week 
was marked by a road trip to Washington, DC
to celebrate a cousin's Bat Mitzvah. 
It was a wonderful evening! 

And now, onto the photos!

BEST OF THE WEEKEND...and...A COLLEGE DECISION!






Hello, friends!
Welcome to Best of the Weekend!

I've got big news to share!
Junior Goo Shoes has decided which college he wants to attend!
No, I'm not going to reveal where,
as we don't like to share those kinds of details to the world at large.
I will tell you that I am extremely happy with his choice!
Throughout this journey, I admit, 
I had a different school as my personal favorite for him,
but -- when I saw him on the campus of his choice,  
we just knew it was right for him! 
It's so exciting, as well as a relief to all of us 
to finally be done with the grueling college admissions process.
I'm a proud mama!
   
I am really looking forward to this weekend.
Tonight we'll be going to that Chinese restaurant I told you about. 
 Saturday, I'll be heading to Washington, DC with my sister
to attend my cousin's Bat Mitzvah.
I'm trying to stay positive about the weather forecast,
which shows a chance of rain on both Saturday and Sunday.
Nooooooh!
We'll have Saturday afternoon free, 
and hope to walk around the Georgetown area where we'll be staying.   
I'm doing the "un-rain" dance right now as I type this.  
Fingers crossed! 

Okay, let's get to the party! 



We'd appreciate it if you'd follow your co-hosts!
