new york 2008

I love New york!
Amber and I just got home from New York and we had the best time! We were so lucky to have an apartment all to ourselves....thanks to Kristen and Bob! And, so my style!

We went to Serendipity! That has always been my favorite movie and I was so excited to try the famous "Frozen Hot Chocolate". Oh so yummy!
We went to the Central Park zoo. It was so awesome! We saw penguins, monkeys, pandas and these huge polar bears. They slept the whole time though!

This is the ferry ride to Statten Island.

I LOVE lady liberty. We took a walking audio tour and learned so much about her. She is so big! Her eyes are 4 feet wide. It was so awesome to see in person!

All I can is the subway is C - R - A - Z - Y For example...this midget michael jackson dancing to beat it.

The weather was out of control. Totally in the 40's. We were always bundled up in coats, scarfs, hats and gloves. It wasn't that bad because we stayed warm from walking absolutely all the time!

Except for the subway. Good thing we got an unlimited week pass because we messed up alot. We had to ride that thing back and forth until we got it right. And, getting it right was about day 8.

The world trade center was so amazing. It was such a crazy feeling to actually see where the towers were and still see crazy amounts of construction. Hearing personal stories and seeing actual pictures were unreal. I cried. It was such a cool experience.

We got to go the top of the Rockafeller Center observation deck. I still cannot believe the view that we saw. Hundreds of buildings....all so unique and beautiful.

We also, shopped ALOT. Ate some really good food. Saw Wicked and Legally Blonde. Took a carriage ride through central park. Watched the ice skaters. Went to Canal street and bargained for many many purses :)

Walked around villages, went to Cupcake Cafe and Magnolia Bakery. Both with lines out the door. Walked around 5th ave and Soho. Went to Times Square. Ordered delivery. Got a manicure and a mini chair massage. (by someone who wasn't a massage therapist. Just an asian lady with good arm strength).

Had candied covered cashews. Ate pizza for Easter dinner. Read 3 books. Saw the temple. Tried to figure out why no fountain diet cokes were good at all. Had homemade scones at Alice's Tea cup. Got sweated by a lady singing on the subway. Got lots of sleep.

And, dropped my cell phone in the bath tub.
