I BIG PUFFY HEART New York! I am not shy about my love affair with this city. I would live there, I would go there for just about every vacation, and I have even briefly thought about naming one of my children Manhattan...ok, that might take it a bit far, but you get the idea. However, the Beckhams have a son named Brooklyn, so it can't be quite the most terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea I know my husband and mother are thinking right about now.
I just got back from spending three glorious days, much too short of a trip there with my Mom and sister in celebration of my birthday. An amazing and AWESOME birthday gift. We shopped, we walked, we ate, we saw, we walked, we saw, we shopped, we walked, we briefly slept, we laughed, we people watched, we walked, we oohed and ahhed, we walked, we talked, and we had the best time together.
We became best friends with Tina Fey, we at least that is how I remembered it. I got to drool over my somewhat weird HUGE crush on Matt Lauer and he may or may not have met eyes with me in a glance and fell in love. (I mean not that I would even dream of that since Mr. Molly Lou is the perfect man.)
My mom who had not been since she was a small child loved it, and I fell in love even more with "the city that never sleeps." I had never been in the fall, but totally understand why people love Autumn in New York. It is amazing and I enjoyed seeing the preparations for Christmas.
The minis survived their weekend with Dad and the only sign of wear and tear is poor Mini #2's face. She face planted and has a beat up nose and a big bruise and scratches on her forehead. The children seemed well adjusted and still healthy. The mess wasn't too much and Mr. seem to be as sane as when I left too.
I can't wait to go through our pictures. Thanks to my mom and sister for going with me on this wonderful and memorable trip!
Hope you all had a great day!
