Monday

I Love the BIG APPLE!

New York was so much fun. Although we weren't able to leave on Monday of last week as planned (thanks to that big snow storm) we were able to leave on Wednesday and instead of leaving on Thursday as previously planned, we stayed through until Saturday. Of course, we left the kids home so I missed them dearly, but the hubby and I made the best of it and had a great time.

Highlights of the trip:

We found a great hotel (since the one we had previously booked were not very nice in helping us change the dates) called "The Time" right off of Times Square which was ideal. The location was fantastic (i.e. Starbucks across the street, Times Square right around the corner and the subway station a skip and a hop away).

We went on the Late Show with David Letterman! What can I say about this? Well, it was soooo cool. We were within touching distance of U2! Yes, they performed for us and they were fantastic. We also met Dave of course and his guest that day was Jon Stewart who was hilarious.

We saw not one, but two Broadway shows. Yes, I finally was able to mark "Seeing Phantom of the Opera on Broadway" off the Bucket List. We also saw Mary Poppins. They were both so, so good. Although the tickets were pricey, we had excellent seats for both and well worth the money.

We walked through Central Park.

We went to the Museum of Natural History. Can I say WOW that place is huge! We were there for a couple of hours and still didn't see the whole thing.

ChinaTown! Yes, I did things there that I think were illegal so I will not write about them here. But still soooo fun.

I had my very own star sighting. Yes, Cynthia Nixon (better known as Miranda from Sex and the City) was exiting the subway as I was getting on. Super Cool.

And just being there, taking in the sights (the Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, Ground Zero), eating a hot dog from a hot dog stand. It was so fun and just a great time. I had a blast.

Nely, how awesome. What a great trip and thanks so much for sharing pictures with us. I would love to see Phantom of the Opera. I'm so glad you got to. I saw it performed here but wow to see it in New York would be the best for sure. I'm so glad you had a great time and you and hubby make such a cute couple.
