Coney Island

Here's to my first post on my new layout!!! A bajillion thank yous and hugs to one of my blog besties, Miss Allison of ShyScout!! You're wonderfully talented and so incredibly sweet to match.
Now, on to a couple weekends ago when I took my first trip to the historical Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. I love super old places, especially when they've got that almost-creepy-circus-y feel to them. I went with my upstairs neighbor slash long enough time friend now that I shouldn't have to keep referring to her as my neighbor, Lissi. It was a spur of the moment trip sparked by my boredom with daytime television. Spontaneity is my middle name. Lissi happened to have free tickets for the New York Aquarium, which is conveniently located on the C.I. boardwalk so we got to park for free, too!!!! My enthusiasm is warranted. Anyone who's ever visited New York knows how much money you can lose in a day, just on parking.
polka dot ray!! he was my fave
beach babes :)
I love this picture of Lissi. I would've let her get one of me but I don't trust anyone holding my cell phone while in the ocean but me 
Souvenir tees. I forgot to take my size label sticker off, oops
It was one of the best girls day trips I've had in a while. We sunbathed for hours, played in the water, ate tons of deep fried food (yes, I had my fourth funnel cake for the summer!), and rode a ride that could give you brain damage (my dumb idea...again). I hope y'all are making the most of these last days of summer as well! 
P.S. Like cute things and free shit? You should enter my giveaway then :)
P.P.S. Sorry if my landscape pics are a bit blurry on your screens; I'm currently playing around with HTML codes (so out of my comf-zone, but I want to learn) in order to get my landscape & portrait pictures to match in width. I'll get it!

    1. This summer has been filled with seeing new beaches and boardwalks in my Jersey and NY area, I am loving it! Lots of fun. I love anything with games, rides, prizes and fried food. :)

    1. Thanks, Rachel :)
      Cute tees and a skirt or tucked into a pair of high waisted shorts has been fun to wear this summer. I loved the one you wore the other day on your blog.
      The mini is mine! I LOVE IT! Best car I've ever driven, hands down. Oh yeah, we'd totally be bffs ;))

  4. I LOVE the new layout, like LOVE it, like I would marry it. Its wicked cute and so you! I've only been to Coney Island twice and both times were fun although the area has really deteriorated. Like I would not feel safe walking around the neighborhood at night. PS love your suit. PSS love that your friend was toting around the Yankees bag. PSSS Hope you have a stellar weekend.

    1. haha I knew you'd think it was the shiznit. Allison did a ridiculous job! I just can't even stop looking at it.
      CI was a blast and I think it definitely looked a lot better than I expected, especially it being part of a landfill (gross), but yeah, the neighborhood is so not safe walking around. Hell, it was daytime and Lissi and I wanted to walk around. Nope, we saw the streets and the dudes on it; we turned right back around into the park.
      Liss doesn't believe in anything that isn't Yankees related.
      I'm having a great weekend. I hope you are too, love!

    1. Thanks, Trice :) Yeah picking a blog design can keep you up at night. I'm so happy with how it turned out. Start making a list of what you'd want and take some ideas from pictures off the web, then send it all to whoever you want to design it for you. There are so many talented designers in the blogosphere.

    1. The old layout was one of the generic blogger layouts people who are usually new to Blogger pick. It was a bookshelf, lots of books...lots of people had it. haha :)

      LOL @ your pants story. Hope you didn't mind too much!
      Glad we're back in regular touch, Dana ♥

  14. :] Thank you so much for the shout out. I am so glad you like the layout. It makes me so happy. I had a lot of fun making it. I like designing for other people because they always come up with cool ideas for layouts etc. that I wouldn't have thought to make. It is also cool seeing your work actually up and functioning.

    Anywhoooooo.... I want to visit Coney Island so badly. This looks like such a fun outing. The polka dot ray is just too adorable. I also love the retro old timey feel of C.I. Your swim suit matches that perfectly. That swimsuit is just too cute. You too both look lovely, and I am liking the souvenir tee's.

    Also, the photos look all good and consistent! Great job. Html is easy once you play around with it a bit.

      Thanks for all the back n' forth emails, and changes, etc. You were the best to work with on this. ♥
