Flowers on the highline.

Have you been to the highline? While walking through I found little yellow flowers growing between the old railroad tracks.

Night out - drama free

With all the drama going on right now it was nice to go out with my cousins and just forget about it all for the night. We had fun. Happy 26th Birthday Jessy!

new favorite artist: Aurel Schmidt

Aurel Schmidt

"It's as every crevice of one of her pieces is filled with something for the eye. Painstaking attention to every detail is spelled out in each of her lines. From the anatomy of the common housefly to the fanciful tail feathers in Peacock the images look as if a slight breath would fracture the serenity of their moment. While fancy is one aspect of her work realism plays an equally important part."

"Medium: Pencil crayon, pencil and acrylic on paper. Ranging in size from 15"X15" to around 40"X60". "The end" is 4ft X4ft acrylic on wood panel. Most of the insects are drawn life size or slightly larger. "

Tom's Restaurant

So what's the deal with Tom's Restaurant? It's this creaky little diner on 782 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn that apparently serves the "Best Breakfast in New York"

And I love breakfast So obviously we have to go check it out.

Giovanni (my boyfriend) and I managed to get there early before the line went out the door and were seated almost right away! On first impression the place is really cool inside. It's small and eclectic with pictures and stained glass windows (One looks like it was taken from a church) literally covering the half tile half painted tan and red walls.

But anyway we were there for the food so lets continue to talk about that. We both had our coffees. G got scrambled eggs with corn beef hash and potatoes and I had a veggie omelet (mushrooms, tomatoes, broccoli and spinach) with grits. We also had french toast and sausage on the side.

( They also have breakfast items on the menu like whipped coffee, mango-walnut pancakes with assorted butters and pumpkin walnut waffles.)

So is it the best breakfast in New York? YES!
Best breakfast ever. I'm obsessed. Whoever actually reads my blog, You have to go!

Ming makes cupcakes

I will never browse for a baking recipe ever again now that I found out you can make cupcakes with coffee, baileys, and beer. Sounds like a party to me.

Thanks Ming!
