Pretty Colors, the Wicked, and the Wiz

Hi Friends!
Happy Saturday!

What a long random week this has been.

I finally found some colorful pillows for the sofa
and I am just loving the plaid.

Remember the bunting and the frames that I was working on..
Here they are pulled together with those new pillows.

This room is happy and ready for summer!

Our white lilac bush has finally bloomed and it smells wonderful.

See that handsome man back there in the photo..
That's Pop,  he has been gone from my world for almost 25 years
 but he is in my heart always. 


Michelle and I took our trip to NYC this week to see Wicked.

The show was amazing!!!!
You will definitely see Elphaba and Glinda in a whole new light.

There were many things that we wanted to do in NYC but didn't get a chance to..
I wanted to get downtown to see the Freedom tower close up
~  it is getting really tall!!
 I also wanted to go to Trump Towers to take some photos for Sally.
She and I love Donald Trump and the Apprentice.
Anyway.. I didn't get over to Trump towers
but what I got was something even better!

While walking down Times Square

Who did I see?

Donald Trump himself!!!!

How flippin cool was that!

Tonight is a concert with the girls and then things well settle down one again.

It is supposed to rain allll day tomorrow. 

Have a great Sunday.
See y'all soon.

I love that first photo so much, I had to Pin it! The plaid pillow is perfect and I love the coffee table vignette.

My daughter & I were just in NYC (we saw Phantom) and we're hoping our next show will be Wicked. I hear it's amazing!

Happy Weekend!

How fun to visit NYC. I haven't been there in the longest time. Never saw Wicked either, even though it ran here in Chicago for a long while. Seeing Donald Trump must have been exciting! Glad you got some good pics!

Love your pillows...your living room is so pretty and cozy!
