Weekend Recap

I had a really great weekend! My mom came to visit for the first time since I have moved to New York and we had the best time sightseeing, shopping, and hanging out.

We went to see the World Trade Center Memorial on Saturday morning and it was beautiful. There were tons of people viewing the memorial, yet it was very quiet and emotional near the reflecting ponds. 

Here are a few pictures I took.

Then my mom and I went around New York looking for a few things to help me prepare for the upcoming winter. We were in and out of subway stations and we came across this one station that had funny little hat mosaics throughout the station. I had to stop and take a few pictures, because I imagined that is what they were made for. (Cellphone pics, sorry for the blurriness)

Last night we went to watch the LSU/Bama game and it was a snorefest. I couldn't really cheer for either team, but I did want to see an exciting game between #1 and #2. Not so much the case.
Overall, we walked the city, we relaxed, and we had a fun weekend.

  1. The tiara picture made me laugh. In contrast to that, the memorial is really quite moving. I have never been to New York so I can't imagine how emotionally poignant the site truly is.
