Flowers, burgers, and Noodles

So to close out the staycation 2 weeks ago we had a visit to the The Botanitcal Garden on Veterans Day. We saw they were in the process of setting up the Annual Train show which started this past weekend. What we didn’t know about was the Chrysanthemum displays they had in the greenhouse.

This ornamental display was outside the greenhouse.

We also finally got to visit the Rockefeller Rose Garden, and we were presently surprised to find some roses still in bloom in November.

No trip the Bronx is complete without a trip to Arther Avenue. No only do we visit the Meat Markets and Cheese shops, we also had to get pizza for lunch. Well The Hubby and The Kid had pizza I had stromboli.

Thursday found The Kid back in school after having Veterans day off, and The Hubby and I headed out to meet a friend for lunch. We were going to meet him at his Familys Wine shop then head over to Steak and Shake for burgers and milkshakes for lunch.

We arrived to town a little earlier than expected so we wandered the street and popped into a couple stores. The above item may just end up on someones Christmas list.

This is our friend Carl who we were meeting up with. He Actually DOES work when at work.

To wrap up the final day of the Staycation we slept in, had some coffee, then went for Manicures and Pedicures. They ladies who work remembered us from the last time we were there. Afterwords we headed over to a local Thai place we haven’t been to in a very long time, and both ended up ordering the Special for lunch Drunken Noodles.

OMG They were amazing! The hubby had Shrimp and I had Chicken.

The Weekend brought us back to our normal schedule, but also found The Kid at my Brothers house for a sleepover which allowed us to both attend Gayme Night (together, on the same night even!).

Last week was an uneventful week and now we we find ourselves gearing up for Thanksgiving. Bring on the Deep Fried Pickles and Turkey!
