Ithaca a very Hip spot
So we had our ladies weekend in Ithaca. It was alot of fun~although whirlwindish. Lots of awesome food! We ate at the Moosewood. I have several of their cookbooks so I was wanting to try it out. Awesome!!!! Kiona ate most of my lunch though because she thought it was "pizza", but it was really polenta with eggplant covered with stewed tomatoes and mozz cheese. Hehe, she is so sweet. We also went to alot of the shops downtown. A little warning here. I have a small pocketbook, one of the shops that I was in wanted me to give him my "bag" when I went in the changing room. As in my pocketbook. Uh, no, I don't think so. Accusations of possible theft are such a turnoff while shopping. A) I'm not 16 years old B) my bag is so small that a large hippy skirt would no way ever be able to be shoved in there and C) I think he was going to rob me, or copy down my credit card info for a later identity theft. So people please tell people who try to do this to you that, thanks but no thanks. There are plenty of other places for me to spend my cash. So I got some great pics of Rach in my new newsboy cap. I couldn't help taking them in front of this gorgeous field of wild flowers. She's such a ham :) I also got some pics of mom with kiona at Buttermilk falls. Kiona had fun swimming in the pool at the hotel also. She is the sweetest little girl!The other great thing about Ithaca is that there is art all over the place there. Especially by the down town shops. This one "Art makes everything better" is actually painted on some plywood that is surrounding some road work. They should do that everywhere!! very cool! All in all a nice weekend, albeit a fast one.
