Gorgeous puppy art at @FetchRestaurant in Warwick, NY. Love this place!! (Taken with Instagram)

Me and Joanna with @FetchRestaurant’s Executive Chef Adam Powers! Advice when we asked him about opening our own restaurant: “Don’t do it!…start small.” Fun brunch, delicious (cornbread) pancakes, and great concept—treating everyone as “man’s best friend” and giving back to the community by hosting pet adoption/benefit events. Love the “dog house” table idea—where 20% of your bill goes directly to the SPCA. Friendly staff, and a warm, comforting, vibrant atmosphere. What a lovely day in Warwick, NY with friends and family!

Family photo opp! Collective response to @brookeariel, “Oh, we’ve never been asked to do this before.” (Taken with Instagram)

I’ve found my “happy place” among the apple orchards and fall foliage. Leave me here with a GD tree and I’m set. (Apple Ridge Orchards in Warwick, NY) (Taken with Instagram)

And the #Yankees WIN!!!!! This game will go down in history. I can happily say my cousin Joanna and I were here for the WHOLE, 14 INNING game—aka our first, live walk off victory! Satisfying Saturday? I’d say so. :) (Taken with Instagram)

Christina Perri performing “A Thousand Years” live at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center! What a beautiful voice.

MetroCard with Ad SpaceThis article caught my eye—and truthfully, I have mixed feelings about M.T.A.’s decision. While I do think from a marketing perspective the ad space is quite valuable (and visible), I’ll be sad to say goodbye to the iconic yellow and blue card and M.T.A. logo. I’m not an avid subway rider by any means, but when I do need my card, I know to grab the golden yellow. Ask any local or commuter, and they’ll tell you the same. It’s brand recognition at its finest. We know the card—it’s looked that way since 1997 (The New York Times).

I’ve finally come to understand the basics of NY subway navigation. But those turnstiles still get me every so quite often. I swipe too fast, or I’m $.25 cents short when I think I have enough on my card from my last ride; they sass me to keep swiping at the same entry point or threaten that I’ll lose my money. (Scandal).

Let’s just hope MoMA doesn’t put Starry Nights on the card—for the city’s sake (and sanity). Black stripe aside, surely those tricky turnstiles don’t accept Visas!
