It's that time of year again.....
Are you going?
To the parade...


In the Big Apple....

It's always been on my Bucket List....
Are you going?
Ever been?
I think about it every year this time....maybe next year.
Happy week!


  1. Nope~Not going- I am not a NYC kinda gal. I went to school there though...but life is just a bit frantic for me there. Are YOU going? xxoo Diana

  2. I've always wanted to go! Visiting Helen's Keller's birthplace is Tuscumbia WAS on my list and I scratched it off this year. Whoot! Whoot!

    Thinking of you...THINKING of YOU and LIFTING YOU UP!


  3. Kathy like you I think of it every year wishing I could go. I should add it to my bucket list myself. That list is getting too long for someone my age. lol
    Hope your doing well and glad I stopped by this morning to catch up with you

  4. As much as I LOVE Manhattan I would never want to attend this parade in person...Crowds and I do not mix well. :o)
    I prefer to enjoy this parade via the comforts of my home. Happy week to you...

  5. Never been but have seen it in movies..Your pics are spectac..My daughter wants a new camera..actually needs.. what camera do you use Kathy?

  6. Hi i am not !! it is toooooo far away from me...........sorry !! ...hahahahhah!! year we are going together???? hahahah!!! love Ria....

  7. My camera is a canon Dinosaur....I don't believe it is on the market anymore....
    My Love just bought me a Canon PowerShot,
    SX20 IS...12.1 mega pixels...
    20X zoom.
    AND Photoshop elements 8....
    LOOK OUT!!!!
    I'm in the learning stages right now...

    This camera is actually not being made anymore either...Had to look hard for it, as my heart was set on it.


  8. Nope. It is not on my bucket list. I am not a big fan of huge crowds.

  9. I've never been , but I watch it every year on Thanksgiving morning ,It wouldn't be the start of the Holiday season without it. I watch Miricle on 34th St. and It's a Wonder Life every year too , to get me in the mood ! It's a tradition !

  10. Beautiful pictures Kathy, never been to NY during the parade just in the spring and it's a beautiful city!

    P.S. How is your husband feeling?


  11. Hi Kathy!
    I've never been there but I sure love watching the old movie Miracle on 34th Street!
    I always watch it from home while cooking the Thanksgiving Dinner.

    Beautiful photos.


  12. I've never dreamed of going anywhere like that.
    A country gal like me would'nt know what to do.
    Wishing you well,
    glenda xoxoxoxo

  13. Been to NYC many times... a few times each year, it is a fabulous place to visit... never on Thanksgiving. Friends who have gone say that you can not get near it. But hey??
    A blogging friends trip??? I would go... : )

  14. Hi Kathy....I have never been to NYC but it is on my bucket list too. I would love to see the holiday lights some time in my life. Those are fabulous photos of Macy's and the parade route! I hope you get there too someday!~Hugs, Patti

  15. I would love to go sometime, but not this year. I talked to someone recently who went last year and they said that it is really overwhelming to be there. So many people!!!! I will just settle for watching on TV. Hope you are doing well this week. Still praying for your sweet hubby!!! Love & blessings from NC!

  16. Yes, Kathy, I've been. It's a madhouse....but lots of fun!

  17. I hope you get to go Kathy! I always see it on's just part of the tradition around here.

  18. Kathy-I was just checking in on you! Yes, I have been. About five years ago my daughter and I spent Thanksgiving in NYC with her best friend and my SIL! We loved it!!! I have never been any colder than I was at that parade! We even got to chat with Al Roker doing a promo in front of one the Macy's windows a couple of days before the parade! Hope all is well with you!

  19. Hello,
    New Follower here via Paris Hotel Boutique...what a lovely blog you have!
    I am the biggest kid every Thanksgiving morning, having to get up and make a special breakfast watching the parade. On my bucket list, too. Always wanted to eat Thanksgiving dinner at Tavern on the Green afterwards, but they recently closed!
    Come visit my blog if you get the chance! Would love to have you!

  20. Hello Kathy,
    I just wanted to stop by and say hello, I saw you on Diana's blog and that you are from Cadillac....I am from Traverse City!!! I have not been home now for 3 1/2 years but hope to make it up to Traverse for the Cherry Festival.
    Anyways...... hows the weather?

  21. Hi Kathy,
    No I have not, I have never been to NYC. I would love to go thou..maybe one day...
    As a little girl my parents took us kids to the Rose bowl parade in LA. I remember it being fun, but there was a lot of people and Mom and Dad had us all hold hands...Hehehe
    How is Dave feeling?.
    Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

  22. Nah, I'm an inveterate homebody.

  23. My father in law treated us to the parade in 2004. We stayed at the Doubletree with a perfect view from our room. Some of us watched from up there and others braved the crowds on the street.

    All in all a well worth it trip. Thanksgiving dinner at the hotel, ice skating at Rockefeller Center and Christmas shopping at Macy's. Will probably never happen again for us!

    Hope you get to do it!

  24. NYC is my fave city in the world!!!
    Just a quick note to wish you a wonderful weekend and to tell you something...stay tuned on Sweet as a Candy...a gorgeous giveaway is arriving next Monday!

  25. these are such gorgeous captures, very colourful and appealing shots. the last one is magical.

    have a good day.

  26. It would probably be fun, but I'm kinda a country type gal!

  27. I hope you can fulfill your dream, Kathy .... I once went to the Rose Bowl in Portland, OR but do not go to anywhere for parades since then.

    My bucket list is complete ... truly! Everything else we do is sheer gravy & I am loving the gravy.

    Love your pic of the skies, awesome. And, that recipe is definitely going in on a rainy day baking moment.

    Prayers are still lifting for you both ... TYSM for sharing this yummy recipe.

    Have a BOO-TEA-FUL weekend.
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  28. Morning sweet friend, Just haven't seen you on in a bit & hoping that all is well.
    Sweet Sunday wishes to you.....
    Blessings........... K.

  29. Great photos but we really prefer to watch it from the comfort of home.

    Darryl and Ruth : )

  30. Not me my friend - I would rather stay home and watch the wohle thing in my jammies!


  31. I have lived in NY all my life and I have never been! It is hard to serve Tgiving dinner and still go to the parade. All the traffic etc.
    I leave it for the tourists!
    You are in my prayers, this most difficult time. I see you posting on Monique's and I remember to come visit, but I am praying!


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
