NYC 2011!

I have many excuses for not blogging very much lately, but you don't want to hear that... you want to see my vacation pictures!! Right? Of course you do! Who doesn't love to see strangers' vacation photos?

A few weeks ago my husband and I took a quick 5 day trip to New York. We both have trouble with the concept of a "relaxing" vacation where you just lay on the beach or BBQ at the cottage. I mean, what else do you do? Is there wifi? We have issues clearly, so we both prefer a city vacation. We stayed with a colleague of my hubby's and his wife in their crazy beautiful apartment in NoHo. He had a couple meetings, I did a lot of shopping and we both did a ton of eating! It was a complete success!

We flew Porter Airlines for the first time too! It was great because the airport is literally a 10 minute drive form our apartment which made the whole process a breeze. And can I tell you, the nicest people work at Porter! You actually feel like a human being moving through the airport instead of part of a herd of cattle. Not to mention their adorable raccoon mascot!

Loving the bold artwork in this cafe. I would have bought this painting in heart beat if it hadn't been way too huge to fit in our luggage...and way out of my price range. Maybe I'll try to make something like it myself. Simple image, bold colors, lots of gloss. Probably sounds easier than it is. Might make a fun weekend project though! We had a great lunch at ilili and admired the cool design. Lots of mirrors!

I couldn't leave New York without seeing another Broadway show! This time it was Wicked. Did I mention I'm crazy for musicals? I had actually already seen Wicked when it came to Toronto last year but it was so awesome it called for another viewing. And I thought my husband might like it too. He's not normally into that sort of thing, but he actually really enjoyed Wicked! If you have any interest in The Wizard of Oz, then you'll appreciate the story. Oh and did I mention it's funny? SO funny! The photo on the left is when we first got to the theatre and I apparently turned into a ghost. I wish I was photogenic. I swear I'm not half mist in person!

Caturday: Best Friends

I need to remind myself that my cats actually do get along because I spent all day Thursday breaking up cat fights! All. Day. Barney went to the vet because he has a sore on his lip and when he came back Marshall would not stop hissing and growling at him! Apparently it's some scent thing. This led to a couple massive cat fights with hissing, screaming, fur flying, the whole nine yards! Yes, Marshall screams when he's upset. So here is a picture of my boys acting like the (almost) perfect little angels they are.

Best Friends

Caturday: OMFG!

It's Caturday and you know what that means! You'll all be forced to look at a picture of one of my adorable kitten-men!

Here's one of Barney when he was just a little itty bitty baby! Now's a big a fat man and almost 2 years old.

Gelato!!

It was such a beautiful spring day in Little Italy that I decided to pick up some of my favourite gelato for a little treat! It's from Dolce and a half litre with 2 flavours goes for around $10, and there's tons of delicious flavours to choose from! We got chocolate and raspberry. They also have a great selection of cakes and little desserts. Spot a kitty paw in the first pic!

Yup, we eat it straight out of the container!
