Scottso Does London

We had another visitor 2 weeks ago, Scott.

That’s him at the Crypt of St. Martin.

Anyway, back to our weekend. We did a lot in 4 days.

He showed up with presents for us!!

Velveeta for Jon and paydays for me!!

First we went to Jon’s favorite Chinese restaurant near Baker Street for dinner on Thursday.

Then we went to Jon’s favorite dim sum restaurant in Chinatown for lunch on Friday.

I’m not sure if Scott isn’t enjoying himself, hates the Christmas Crown Jon got him or I just caught him at a bad moment.

After lunch we checked out the fountain at Trafalgar Square.

 

On Saturday the boys went to an Arsenal game while I cooked and baked for the Ugly Christmas Sweater party were were going to Saturday night.

How ugly are our sweaters?!  Scott definitely had the ugliest one there!

On Sunday we walked around London a little more.

Stopping at Westminster Abbey.

And Buckingham Palace.

We got dinner at another one of Jon’s favorite Thai restaurants (do you see a theme happening?!) and then Scott headed back to NY on Monday morning.

Such a great weekend!  I hope you enjoyed it Scott!

Soooo Excited!!!

In 4 days my family will be here!  I’ve planned out the week, made reservations for tea and dinners, and made an itinerary for them while I’m in class.  I CAN’T WAIT!!!

We are a crazy family but I’m sure most would consider their family crazy also.  We laugh at the littlest thing and just enjoy our time together.

Most say my mom and I are twins.  Do you agree?

This photo is so ugly but I think it describes my family perfectly…..always blaming Alex for something.

Things Planned:

Abbey Road

Borough Market

Portobello Market

Afternoon Tea

Bumpkin

Belgo

Selfridges

Harrods

Big Ben

My First Visitor!

Jen’s weekend here flew by!  We had a jam packed 4 days though.

She arrived Thursday morning and next thing I knew it was Sunday afternoon and I was dropping her off at the Heathrow Express.

DAY 1

A little tour around the Westminster Abbey area

A little tour around the Westminster Abbey area

 

Fashionista Tea at The Berkley

Prêt-à-Portea was so much fun.  Each sweet & savory piece was inspired by a piece of fashion.  We tried to take photos but the lighting wasn’t good at all.  You can learn about the afternoon tea here. The only photo that came out was of a pair of Christian Louboutins. I think it’s a sign.

 

Spring/Summer 2008 Shoe

 

After tea we walked around Harrods. and Harvey Nichols then headed to meet Jon and some friends for dinner and drinks at the pub.

Next up…DAY 2 – A day trip to Bath!
