BADA BING Big Apple!!

I LOVE to travel! I don't get to as much as I'd like to due to lack of funds. I had an amazing time in NYC the past few days and I have decided that I could totally be a New Yorker if only I was part of the one percent...ya know an heiress or something. I'm working on that. Now, if you want to feel like American royalty for a few hours I highly suggest you attend Sunday brunch at The Waldorf Astoria at some point in your life.

Its $100 per person but very worth it! I enjoyed myself a $100 worth and then some. I justified this feasting on the amount of walking we were doing......."chuckles".

Also, if you are in NYC in the near future be sure to check out Motown the Musical I was dancing the entire time! I think I've mentioned my Broadway infatuation:)

This is turning into a travel blog......ha if I was only so lucky! Back to reality it is which is upcoming swimsuit season. I must say a owe Mother Nature a big one because she has extended winter weather and I do not hate her for it at all!

NYC or Bust!

I'm so excited I can barely stand it! My mom and I are leaving for our trip to NYC tomorrow....morning....EARLY! It is one of my absolute favorite places in the world to visit and my most favorite part of all.......

I remember my very first trip to NYC. I was 8 years old and my parents took me to see Phantom of the Opera and I fell in love:)

I'm really hoping to get a good amount of exercise in while I'm there in the form of walking. If my mom has anything to say about it, I will. She could win a gold medal in power walking.

Have an excellent weekend!

Life on the farm is kinda laid back.....

I mentioned that I was going to be heading down to the Heart-o-Dixie for my dear grandfather's 82nd birthday. I do not think I mentioned that he and my grandmother live on a farm. Of course, this means during every visit I have to sing John Denver.

What I think I look like farming
What I really look like.....Pauly Shore-"Son-in-Law"

"Fresh off the farm, oh my God, I can't believe it. Right across the hallway. Hallelujah. So you're inbred?"

Great weekend all in all! I didn't get to make the ice cream sandwich cake:( BOO! My significant other requested a dessert I've made before, Chess Squares(recipe below).  or I've also heard them called Neiman-Marcus browniesI can't say I blame him for requesting these because they are o-my-freaking-gosh good!

Well.....did not go exactly as planned. I got a little distracted and overwhelmed and well it was a big ole mess. I wish I had a photo. Funny part is my fantastic family still ate it and even raved about it, love them:) I took some farm photos with my phone because I forgot my memory card..imagine that!

Fin-a-lly Fri-day

107.7 WIVK is great local country station here in Knoxville, TN and it is very dear to my heart...EVERY Friday at 5:00pm they play a musical montage remix of Finally Friday by George Jones. Video below including some classy images...*chuckles* for your listening pleasure.

Par-tay, Par-tay. Speaking of this weekend I'm heading to The Heart of Dixie(Alabama) for my favorite person in the entire world's 82nd birthday, my grandfather!

Birthdays are always a great excuse to eat fat chick foods and this fatty loves her a celebration :) SO I am going to attempt to make this luxurious looking sin

Happy Weekend!
