mvmHello Lovelies! Welcome to my weekly wrap up!

I had a great week! Wednesday I went to the eye doctor and got an exam. I went ahead and got a trial for contacts and ordered new glasses. I have had contacts before but the prescription wasn’t right, so they didn’t help my vision at all. The ones I got this week were right on. It is so nice to be able to see correctly without having to wear glasses. I mean, I ordered a cute pair as a back-up, but I hate them falling off my face and/or finding myself looking around them to the blurry world. I am loving it right now.

Friday we decided to drive out to see the Statue of Liberty. It was a spur of the moment idea but the trip went well. Except for the traffic, OMG it was crazy, the trip was fun. I have always wanted to see Lady Liberty. We didn’t actually go through New York, we went through a bit of Manhattan and then skated over to New Jersey’s Liberty Park. We saw the New Jersey World Trade Center memorial and got a nice view of the back of the Statue from the island. We are planning a trip into the city very soon and also plan to take a ferry to Liberty Island, so that will be really cool. I feel like New York and the surrounding areas did not look like what I pictured. I don’t know what I expected but that wasn’t it. It was really surreal to be so close and see how big the city really was. I can definitely see the allure of living right in the there in the thick of it. We took some pictures.
