New York City?!??!!?

So fabulous. Utterly and completely fabulous.

I've been to NYC 1 time for about 8 hours 12 years ago. Got that? ;) I loved it, the tiny tiny bit I saw of it, but was worried that it would be different this time.

It's not. We are officially in love with this city. We flew in on Sunday night and went to our hotel to drop our crap off. Headed straight back out and watched the dancing/singing snowflakes at Saks, before checking out the Xmas tree at Rockefeller. We went by Radio City Music Hall and the entrance to the NBC studios before heading to an Irish pub for dinner. It was an early night on Sunday as we were both exhausted from all day travel.

Yesterday I had to work all day, but Blondie met me for lunch before he started touring the city. I met him after work, and we headed down to Times Square for the evening. Times Square is insane - it's like Vegas without casinos. So bright and loud and things to see everywhere you look. We did dinner in Times Square and then started walking towards Empire State Bldg - we ended up turning off before we got there, but it was perfect as our turn off street took us straight to Bryant Park!!!!

I heart me some Project Runway and for those who don't know, the season finale of Project Runway ALWAYS ends in Bryant Park - so this was a big deal for me. We watched the ice skaters for awhile and just hung out and enjoyed the view - giant Xmas tree, ice skaters, little temporary Xmas shops, the top of the Empire State Bldg.

Today I'm working again, but tomorrow and Thurs I'm off and we intend to tour. We are going to hit Central Park, do "Top of the Rock", make our way through Upper West Side, etc. We hope to try and hit Little Italy area tomorrow at some point too.

Having a blast!!!!

A trip...

Blondie and I are off to NYC tomorrow morning for 5 days. I am SO EXCITED about this - I can't wait to see the city, hear what Blondie thinks, and also check out where I would be working if we do make this move. Our hotel is a really cute one, super close to Rockefeller Center, so we will definitely be checking out the Xmas tree also.

I got my hippy dippy hair cut off for this trip - it's back to shoulder length now instead of 3/4 the way down my back. I'm also going to get my eyebrows waxed today.

Not much else has been going on - I've been offered a promotion to a mgmt position at my company, it's obviously contingent on if I don't take the job in NYC. And work holiday parties were this past week - my work threw one Tuesday in the basement of our bldg, and then on Wed it was off with some friends for a few drinks, and then on Thurs, my boss threw one at his house.

MUNI went down on Wed also in the city - the underground trains were shut down completely in both directions. You know how bad it sucks to have to take a crammed full bus down Market St and the ride that normally takes 11 mins total, takes 40 mins? Yeah. Boo hoo.

Blondie has been making improvements almost daily to his site - it's zooming along and he has more fans than ever for it!!!! GO BLONDIE!!!!

Keeping sis in my thoughts - hope your "break the nose" surgery goes well on Thurs!
