I really hate to discount the grounds of the Vanderbilt Mansion at Hyde Park but you guys, I “met” the world’s (second) largest garden gnome! Okay, apparently since this gnome was erected, a larger one hopped onto the scene but this is the world’s largest in New York, so whatever. And yes, I have a thing for garden gnomes, because I’m weird. Deal with it.
Moving along, after we went to the Vanderbilt Mansion we had burgers because that is my favorite food and because it was my birthday the day before. I do what I want. Then we drove around, like all over the place. This is what happens when you live in a city without a car, someone hands you car keys and you go exploring like Lewis & Clark, but without all the non-amenities. While looking for things to do around Sundown mountain, I stumbled upon this. So my boif promptly pulled into the nearest gas station for hydration and directions. Needless to say, Chomsky and I were fast friends. He said he’d text me, but I’m not holding my breath. He was a little stoned…(ha).
So we saw the country house, ate, drove around, saw my new bff Choms, and went to dinner at the CIA. When I promptly doubted every decision I’ve made up until then.
I was SO excited! Couldn’t even help myself. Yes, I’m wearing birks, no I don’t care. DEAL WITH IT.
Lest you thought this was the end of the Hyde Park posts, you thought wrong! I have more, guys. Just for you. Apparently I should go away every week and only work two days because then I’ll have a ton of blog content. Did you miss some posts? Don’t worry! Check out parts one & two.
what I’m wearing: tee (on sale!) // pants (on sale!) // sandals // sunglasses
You look so excited it’s making me LOL. But freal, Chomsky seems like a good friend to have.
Wait, welcome back to blogging!!! I’m in NYC this summer, so it’s always fun seeing what you’re up to around the city ha 🙂
Those gardens are awesome, but obviously I expected that. Duh. Choms on the other hand is freaking stellar. I love how excited you look (and also love that your’e wearing Birks). I’m considering getting a pair, you know, just as they’re probably about to not be stylish anymore. But hey, I’ll still be AHEAD in St. Louis. Midwest delays, y’all.
You’d fit right in in Germany with your Birks!
I was hoping you disappeared from the blog universe
Looks like a fun trip, and aren’t birkenstocks ‘in’ now anyways?
