One of things I loved about this weekend was I literally dropped everything & ran off to a last minute vacation. New York to Rhode Island to be exact. Yes, I even made people laugh when I said, “How you doin?” with an accent like Joey from Friends. Gorgeous is the only word that I can use to describe what I saw. That above picture is me on a cliff overlooking the water & the beach. It’s kinda weird because I was gone for about 40 hours & I feel like I left for a month. Things are so different from state to state in the United States that it’s unbelievable. Apparently Rhode Islanders are obsessed with Dunkin Donuts too…there was one about every 2 minutes. There were wind turbines that were huge & randomly placed, bridges that Omg I don’t think I personally could have driven over them because they were soooo high up, & places called Sip n Dip. Hehe.
My friend’s friend had a graduation party up there so I jumped at the chance to go. I saw beautiful harbor towns like Newport & Bristol. The smell of the salt water just hits you & the sound of the waves crashing…music to my ears. And the Mansions…..OHHhhhhhh the Mansions were Gorgeous!!! I saw the Rosecliff Mansion & the Breaker Mansion. The Breaker Mansion used to be the Vanderbilt home. Yeah the Vanderbilts mentioned in Legally Blonde. Yeah know today wealth is measured in like phones, labels, fancy cars, apartments in Manhatten, but back in the early 1900’s…MY GOD!! I have never seen such beautiful & elaborate craftsmenship in a home. Everywhere some angel or design was carved into the house’s walls. I literally almost cried in the Breaker house because it was so beautiful. It was expensive to do the tours but I know it goes into preserving the house so it was okay.
This is cool for the ladies who read my blog: In these houses the stairs were made 2 inches shorter than normal stairs so the ladies in the gowns wouldn’t trip on their gowns!! Isn’t that cool!!
I fell in love with the Rosecliff Mansion. It’s the mansion where they filmed the famous tango scene in the movie, “True Lies” with Arnold Schwarneger. In my wildest dreams I would want to get married in that house. It would cost 40 thousand dollars but I think I’m going to start saving up now. Just gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous.
“I wanna be a billionaire so freaking bad…” Yeah, I totally understand that song now. I had such a wonderful time sight-seeing. Sometimes you really need a break from life. Just get away from it all. Everything was right where I left it too. Even that messy bedroom was left standing. I feel like I can go on now. I’m making new decisions & looking forward to positive things. Maybe just maybe I happiness is just around the corner. I hope I hope. For now I’m still going to dream….dream of the world.
