I got a tattoo, or in other words this was my birthday present to myself!

My Tattoo: Otherwise Know As My Birthday Present to Myself

I'm very pleased with the results!

This is the pewter button it is designed around:

If you live in Maryland and want a tattoo I highly recommend Alfie at Marks of the Spark Tattoos in Frederick! He's awesome!

Thanks to my friend Leann for spending the day with me and being my tattoo buddy! I've had an awesome birthday!

Today we popped over to Havre de Grace, MD to celebrate my upcoming birthday. I have plans on Monday with a friend that I'll tell you about later, but today I really, really wanted to get close to the Bay because I really miss spending time near the water. We ate lunch at Tidewater Grille, Alexis rode a horse and we walked around the promenade around the Concord Point Lighthouse. On the way home we stopped at IKEA and I had forgotten how fabulous that place is! It was a really, really all around great day! I love days like this!

I hope you all had a fabulous Saturday too.

The Manhattan/Brooklyn skylines taken from the Staten Island Ferry:

Alexis finally got to see "her" Statue of Liberty. It was love at first sight!

Lady Liberty

Now I've got to get her over to the Eiffel Tower.... ;oP

The Globe sculpture that stood between the Twin Towers and was pulled from the wreckage:

WTC Globe

My understanding is that they are going to move this from Battery Park, back over to the new WTC site when it is complete.

I've always been fascinated with this church. It's such a gorgeous building!

And yes she insisted on wearing her Wellies! She and those boots pounded the pavement and good! She liked riding in the cab better though!

New York in the spring? I highly recommend it! I had forgotten how vibrant that city is and how much I love it! I can't wait to go back!

Pictures from Friday

On Friday Alexis and I ventured into DC to meet up with some friends from Tennessee. Alexis ended up falling twice and injuring her leg so we didn't get to see them. I really hate that. But we had fun until she did fall!

Here are a few pictures I took. I so miss my DSLR. *SIGH* But they turned out ok none the less.

Friday morning was absolutely beautiful! In the mid 70's with a nice breeze! Just lovely! I think I'll wait until the fall to venture back over though...People everywhere!

Most importantly Alexis got to see "her ruby slippers" so as far as she is concerned all is right in the world.

If only it would stay that easy! ;oP
