Summer Time has FINALLY arrived!!! I dont know why but this year was CRAZY busy with 3 kids in school. I thought as my kids got older I would have more down time while they are at school. I thought things would quiet down and I would have ALL this free time...Boy was I WAY.OFF! I helped out more in the classroom, I did Take Home Reading for the Kindergarten class, I have a busy assignment/calling with the Youth (Young Women specifically) in my church, and then there is carpool!!!! WOW! Basketball, scouts, Soccer, breakdancing, dance class, karate, and we bought a puppy. Alright enough of my excuses...Im back! And I hope to stay back! I miss blogging. A LOT!

If only I could go running on this trail every morning. What awesome scenery to start my day. There is something about being by the water that I LOVE! Not that I hate running in the mountains...but I was definitely diggin the flat terrain in NYC...sigh.....Gorgeous!
This was our rooftop pool: Hotel Gansevoort. Incredible Hotel. HIGHLY reccommend. LOVED it! Located in the Meat Packing District. My fave district in Manhattan BY.FAR.

And what kind of Fashion Blogger would I be if I didnt post a Fashion Funny!!! People Watching is probably on my top 10 list. And this sweet old lady definitely made it to my photo archive. How cute is she! She is probably at least 70 wearing velour pink sweats WITH Uggs, a velvet pink blazor, pink leather cowgirl hat with silk scarf around the brim, and a pink LEI...not to mention it is Summer time. Lol! Definite highlight of the show for me :)
