New York City 2014

For my mother-in-law’s birthday, we (Jenny, Kayla, and I) decided to take her to The Big Apple.   Greta had never been before and we thought it would be a fun trip for just the girls!

We had a great time being typical tourists.   We saw the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, took walks through Central Park, ate at Serendipty’s, Juniors, and Gray’s Papaya’s, took the subway, went to the top of the Empire State Building, walked (a LOT), enjoyed broadway shows, and much much more!

Here are a few pictures of our fun time!

We had planned to take Trapeze lessons, but got rained out.

We met up with Annie Rigney, our cousin, while in Manhattan. We had great Moroccan food while we visited.

 

And there you have it!   A great trip full of fun!

Happy Birthday, Greta!

Perk up your Salad!

Need a new flavor for your spring/summer salads?   Try this ah-MAZ-ing Poppy Seed Dressing!  Jolene at Holly Hill Homestead has always been one of my favorite chefs in the entire world.  I think she has outdone herself with this dressing.

Try it on fruit salad, with a spinach and strawberry salad on a hot day, ontop of grilled chicken, and more!  I can’t say ENOUGH about this.  THANK YOU, Jolene, for making the world a better place with your dressing!  hehe

But wait!  It gets better!   You can stay at her Holly Hill Homestead Bed and Breakfast and she will do the cooking for you!  (just click on the link)   Hidden in the woods of North East Texas, enjoy a day of antiquing in nearby Jefferson, visit many lakes in the area, or just lounge on the back porch and let the country just cleanse your soul.   (trust me, it’s so worth it!)  

Check out her Blog here at Atop Holly Hill.   She has lots of yummy recipes waiting there for you!  Enjoy!
