14 years & versatility

Meet my friend Deanna.
We've been friends for 14 years. 
Admitting that makes me feel kinda old...
Last week she came for a visit & we were so happy to have her!

Signs of Spring are beginning to show themselves even if it is still chilly

We explored Bleeker Street & found an awesome local bookstore
I wondered why this book caught my eye...
Deanna reminded it's the book in Serendipity...
the one John Cusack searches for in every bookstore in NYC in a desperate attempt
 to find Kate Beckinsale's number
I'm not gonna lie I am kicking myself for not buying it

We stumbled upon a crazy cool record store... love the disco

We introduced Deanna to The Campbell Apartment

Hung out at Grand & Times Square

We happened to see a movie being shot that includes a New Years 2012 celebration
hence the confetti & extras wearing New Years Eve 2012 hats
It was kinda like experiencing the real thing minus the insane number of people & Ryan Seacrest
Oh... and the movie stars Lea Michele & Ashton Kutcher

I see these sweet yellow phones every time we are in Grand Central
they always succeed in making me smile

Reservations for Serendipity were a must

We rode the Roosevelt Island Tram to get some awesome views of the city

Deanna wanted some cool pics...

my main squeeze & yours truly

I'd say we accomplished her mission

We danced it up

Said hello to Central Park

Ordered some takeout & had a laid-back night

Attended the St Paddy's Day Parade on 5th Ave
the Grand Marshall was Mary Higgins Clark

Followed up the parade at a local Irish pub
J got a lil souvenir for me... thanks, man

a shot of our neighborhood

We went out with a bang on Deanna's last night in town.
Jersey Boys was fantastic.
 I wished for my Dad the whole time. He loves some good music... I get it honest.
D, thanks for spending your break with us! You are one awesome friend. Here's to 14 more years.

I got this cool award from my friend Julia.

Versatile: embracing a variety of subjects, fields or skills; turning with ease from one thing to another.

I dig that. Thanks, Julia. Upon receiving said award, you are suppose to share 7 unknown things about yourself & then pass the kindness along to others. So here goes...

1 I love tidiness... a place for everything & everything in it's place makes me happy.
2 I sleep with 2 pillows.
3I'm an only child, but desperately want to avoid the stereotypes.
4 I love to celebrate... anytime, anywhere.
5 I went camping every summer during my childhood & I miss it greatly.
6 I love to write letters... stationery makes me swoon.
7 I'm looking forward to Spring... a certain someone you know has a birthday coming up...

Drumroll, please... The Versatile Blogger Award is hereby passed onto...

Where are the Rigolosos going next??

and just as hard to sleep after.
