I'm back but not for long!

My weekend in Utah with Becky was lovely. We got to do a whole lot of catching up. We don't get to chat much during baseball season because she is swamped with work and travel. I will get to spend the next two weekends with her though! She has meetings in New York City next weekend and she invited me to tag along. I am beyond excited. Although I am a Boston girl, I have NEVER been to New York. So much to see! I am leaving Thursday morning and will be home on Sunday night. I even managed to score tickets to a Yankee game for us on Saturday night. All season I was thinking of how I was going to beg, borrow and steal to see a game in the Bronx before they tore the stadium down at the end of the season. Well, this just fell into my lap and it was an offer I couldn't refuse.

Be sure to tell me your favorite NYC spots if you have been there!

Hugs,

Do everything you can to see a show on Broadway. It's unforgetable. Oh, and try not to stare if you see a man peeing in the street, ha-ha. Trust me, it happens . . . a lot. :o)

SO THRILLED for you.....and I agree with Michelle...you MUST go shopping in the "basements"......I have friends that LOVE it and say NOT to pass it up. Glad you got tickets to the game.
Be safe dear one and have OODLES of fun....
Smiles from the miles,

Lori, have an awesome time in NYC - if you get a chance pop over to Juniors in Brooklyn for a slice of plain Cheesecake - make sure you to the original flatbush location, not times square or grand Central - the ambiance of Brooklyn is what makes it an event.

oh, and go to Peanut Butter & Co on Sullivan Street - they have wicked good sandwiches and the "Death by Peanut Butter" is awesome. If you don't like Peanut Butter then, well, I don't know what to tell you!

Do all the fun "touristy" stuff - if you can get near the Today show go and wave to us!

Enjoy your Visit to the big apple!
