I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - The Museum at FIT Uniformity and 1001 Nights: A Love Story About Loving Stories

What: Uniformity at the Museum at FIT

Where: 7th Ave. at 27th St.
             New York, NY

Who: Teens and above

When: Through November 19, 2016
Mom's view: The Museum at FIT's current exhibit focuses on uniforms. It consists of both actual uniforms and fashions based on them. A wide variety of  uniforms and the fashions based on them are part of the exhibit. The fashions include ones based on sailor's suits, ones based on army uniforms and even ones based on fast food uniforms. There are also fashions based on many sports uniforms including baseball, football and even auto racing. Some of the fashions are surprisingly nice, and you wouldn't even know they were based on a uniform. Others are a little bit bizarre. All in all, it's an interesting exhibit. The exhibit is completely free and does not take that long to visit so it is a good place to go if you only have a limited amount of time. The exhibit is probably best suited to teens and above although if you have a tween or maybe even a younger child who is particularly interested in fashion they would enjoy it as well.
We were given free tickets to 1001 Nights: A Love Story About Loving Stories for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on viewing the show.

What: 1001 Nights: A Love Story About Loving Stories

Where: Linda Gross Theater
              336 W. 20th St.
              New York, NY
Who: All ages

Mom's view: There are many layers of stories within 1001 Nights: A Love Story About Loving Stories. There is a story within a story and within that story there are several other stories. The show is basically a retelling of 1001 Arabian Nights. However, if you are expecting to see a show similar to Disney's Aladdin, which is currently playing on Broadway, you will not find that. Here the story is wrapped up in the modern tale of a girl named Sheri who loves stories. The show is very creatively presented. It includes the use of puppets as well as the use of common objects used in the most interesting manner as props. For example, a small suitcase is used as the mouth of whale. The enthusiastic cast really makes the story come alive for the young audience members. The humor that fills the show keeps the older kids and adults interested. Thus, this very entertaining show is a great choice for all ages. You won't want to miss it. For more information or to find out how to order tickets click here
And that's Mom's view. Tune in to tomorrow's Talking Topics post for Aurella's view.
