NYC Part 1

Hello, lovelies! I am finally having a morning at home where I am able to get back to my blogging. On a very happy note, school is out of the summer! Graduation and our end of the year program was last Thursday night. On Friday my mom and I went and picked up a new car for my sister. Monday I headed back to school to clean my room...for the last time. That's right, I am no longer teaching my little munchkins. After much deliberation and prayer, I told my boss two weeks ago that I would not be returning to teach next year. We plan on moving in the near future and I really want to go in a totally different direction, career wise. That's about all I have for you right now, but I'll keep you posted on plans.

Ok, so NYC was completely amazing! There were nine of us girls who went and conquered...ok, not really...but wined, dined, shopped and slept very little. I'm going to hit a few highlights today and talk about the fabulous food tomorrow.

The first picture was taken with the bride-to-be shortly after our arrival on Thursday. We had a little lingerie shower in the hotel, abundant in champagne and cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery.



Friday morning Kara and I got up super early to go to the Regis & Kelly show. Since we didn't have tickets we had cross our fingers in the stand-by line. Fortunately we were two of the last ones into the audience, but we had to sit on the stairs. Um, until two guests who were sitting in the FRONT row got up and left and WE GOT TO SIT IN THE FRONT ROW!!! So. Much. Fun. It was hard to get good pictures in there with the lighting. Not only did they record the first show, but we pre-taped another and got to see commercials made. Two hours worth!



The Alexander McQueen exhibit at the MET was mind-boggling. If you are familiar with him or his work you know that he was a very interesting fellow. One of the girls commented on how the exhibit was just creepy. Yes, odd, but the dresses were incredible.



Since I had never been in FAO Schwarz, it was a must on my list. I was like a kid in a candy store, I mean a kid in a huge toy store! The Barbie Foosball table is one of five in the world. I took back a bag of candy from the candy bar to my kids as their surprise for being so good while I was on my trip.



First thing Saturday morning Kara and I made a quick trip to the Plaza.



Of course Tibi was on my list of things, too. I had the sweetest girl help me try on a zillion outfits. It was by far one of the highlights.



Here are other pictures that I snapped along the way. Come back tomorrow for a post on the delish food and drinks!
