"When in Rome....yadda yadda yaddda"...

Yeppers...one must try to fit in..anywhere they go..so "they" say..

So, when you're in the "hood"...in NYC...

now, I don't know any gang signs..but I think we're trying to count to 7...

But when one is at the Cherry Blossom Festival, one needs to look "Spring-like"..


{didja see the T-shirts?? They are original artwork from Erin over at http://eef-ink.com/ }


Thanks Erin!  She's a real sweetie..go look at her aDORabLe art!

She draws little "creatures" and when I first saw Mia, Brandi's little rescue dog, I told Erin that Mia looked just like one of her drawings..well, she gifted us with this:

Pretty good likeness, yes??



So, I turned them into iron-ons for T-shirts and even made one for Ella's Build-a-Bear..


OK..so back to the whole "when in Rome" thing..

So at Branch Brook Park...lookin' all girly..

Chloe..

 Mia...

 Grammie



..and Ella..

And...let's not forget..Lancaster County...






hahahhahahaaa!

We were standing at the photographer's place when a train with tourists went by..they were all pointing and waving at us..guess they thought we were the 'real deal'..

Yeeeeah..1 Puerto Rican, 2 Irish women and a PuertoRican Irish Princess!! 

OK..whew..a lot of stuff in one post.  Sorry..it must be the cold meds...cough cough hack hack..

Have a great tomorrow, OK?

Loved your post and the T-shirts. Ella is adorable in her pink sunnies. The costumes make you look like you should be working hard.

Oh that's so funny!!!

You got 10.5 inches of snow! Yikes! Me'thinks you should holler at Mother Nature, for a re-count. ,-)

-still clapping hands- Did I tell you how happy I am, that you got rid of Word Verification?

Yes, I did.

And I do so, again.

-gigggles-

Really!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

just call me jo said...

Oh, you funny lady. Did you just stop those gangsta dudes for a photo op? The T-shirt of Mia is marvelous. I can't believe there is a Amish-look-alike photo place in Lancaster. So sad! (And I mean that in the best way.) You are a gorgeous Grammie!

Vee said...

You are such an ambassador of good will! I can count on you for my morning chuckles and those final comments have me roaring! Bwahahahahaha...

Debby@Just Breathe said...

You sure know how to have fun! Love the pictures. I really love the t-shirts you made with Erin's design. Can't believe the pictures from Lancaster County, looks like a great day.

What a crack up that first photo is! I actually laughed out loud when I opened up the post. You always bring a smile to my face.

Thank you for stopping by today. xo
