I'm going to the BIG APPLE!!!!!

Yes!!! New York City!!!

I'm so excited. No, I'm more than that.....I can't even come up with a word to describe it except that it's a dream come true!!!
I have wanted to go to New York City since I was in high school!

(Every time I say "New York City" that salsa commercial comes to my mind....do you know the one? "New YORK CITY??? Get the rope...." hahahhhahahahhaa)

Anyway......My friend Jennifer called me up and said that her sister and sister's husband invited us to go along with them to NYC and the room was on them!!!! What??? YES!!!! So all I have to pay for is the plane ticket (186.00 to be exact) and money to eat with....can you say cheese and crackers???? I don't care if I have a dime to spend there as long as I get to sight see!!! (I'm looking for things to sell on ebay as you read this....)

First stop: Studio 1A Rockerfeller Plaza!!!! I love the Today show! Ya'll can help me with some poster ideas!!! :)
Second stop: EVERYWHERE ELSE!!!! ......Central Park, Times Square, ect, ect, ect....!!!!!
Third stop: If I find enough junk to sell on Ebay I want to see a Broadway Play!!!

So, I hope you don't see this as bragging or (Lisa) like a in-your-face kinda thing but it's just me spreadin' the joy!!!! :)))

Been there, done all that!! You will not be disappointed. We went in Feb., 5 years ago.

A Broadway play is a must!! And while you are at it, catch an off-broadway play as well. They are just as good as the big productions.

You've got to ride the subway! And wear comfortable shoes...that's all you will do....walk, walk, walk.

I watched, from the hotel room:), Jeff and his Dad on Good Morning America:) lol!!!! Toooo funny!! Get up early girl, to get there in time to get front row.

I know you'll have a blast!

Ah...one of these days I will go. A cruise this year is a first for me, thanks to my daughter graduating!! Oh Yeah, am very excited for you!!!

That sounds like so much fun!

For a sign, I'd do a giant thought or voice bubble like from a comic strip that says something like, "PICK ME!" and then you could jump around like Donkey does on Shrek, lol.

Take lots of pics for the blog!~

You will have the time of your life. If you are a shopper, China Town is fun. I found the people to be very friendly there, totally not what I had expected! Another MUST-EXPERIENCE is attending a worship service at the Brooklyn Tabernacle...it's awesome!
