Hurray! USA here I come!

Post by Creabella on Sun Feb 17, 2013 5:06 pm

This year my husband and will go and visit the USA this year again! The last time was 12 years ago when the horrible attacks of 9/11 took place.
We arrived 9/10 at our family in Princeton. To see the horror next day on tv!

Now we are going back. Hopefully this time without something bad happening !
The reason we go is at least a very happy reason! Our cousin is getting married in June.
He and his wife-to-be will marry at Westbury, near New York.
We want to visit New York too when we are there.
Just to see how New York is supposed to be like, and not in the horrific state it was the last time we were there, with pictures of missing people, burning candles, FBI, CIA, MP and trucks filled with pieces of the towers driving around New York and so on...

And now I am already wondering, are there stores in New York or closeby where you can buy good paint & utilities?
It would be nice to get some american brands to try those out!


I am so excited!!!

I don't know what is your favorite paint. I checked Mehron and Wolfe and this shop came out in both of them. I don't really know the shop. Try on line to find your favorite brand and look for store locator that should help.

If you'll be here for a while, why not order some paints from a company here? Lots of companies ship really quickly. The Forum Shop ships them with great speed.

Paola, it was sure crazy! It was my first time in the USA and my husband had booked this trip as a surprise for me!
After this trip I had to hear for years he wouldn't take me anywhere no more because I got things demolished! Yeah, like it was my idea to have these planes crash into buildings hahahaha Very Happy

The plan is to fly on the 12th of June. The wedding is 6/15 and we will probably fly back on the 18th I think. We still have to book the flights. We will be staying at our families house in Princeton!

When are you going Kammy? It would be fun to meet some FPF friends ... Very Happy

Yeah indeed, don't want to think of that possibility.

To have been so close to such horror, it seems surreal now and had made a big impression on me.

Just 5 weeks to go Very Happy but still haven't completed my wedding outfit yet... Still looking for some proper shoes to go with the dress and something of a jacket or bolero or something cardigan like.
Because I am not sure want kind of weather it will be mid June.
Anyone can tell me?

My husband said to me, if you can't find the right shoes here in Holland we'll look in America. Year sounds nice, but what if we can't find decent shoes there either?

Haha I'll have to go without them then? Very Happy

Sorry this is the excitement talking.
Very Happy

I am counting down!!! Very Happy

OMG Ella that is so exciting!!! Do your shopping in New York is soooo much cheaper then Europe! Many come down just for the week end to shop, specially sales season like January or end of December!!!

Have fun!!!!
We are not far from NY if you feel like send me a msg and we could arrange to meet! Very Happy

That would really be a nice thing to do, sure would love to meet you Paola! but I am not sure yet if we can find the time. If we do, I'll let you know!

We will arrive on the 12th of June and be mainly staying in Princeton except for the days of the wedding. They marry on the 15th. The night before and on the day of the wedding we will sleep at a hotel at Westbury.

Is any of those 2 places anywhere near you ?

We do have plans to visit New York but probably after the wedding Very Happy and we are thinking of going to Six Flags (in Jackson I think). Have you ever been there?
What's the weather usually like in June?

We will be leaving the States on the 18th so our time there is limited.
