I'm taking a trip!

That's right bitches!  Most of you probably read it on facebook last night (seriously, what's the point in having all my blogging friends on facebook?  The point is having more than just blogging relationships, duh!).

I'm going to NEW YORK CITY!  Again!  I've been a handful of times in the past but what makes this trip so different is who I'm going with - the true love of my life!  He's never been and I CANNOT wait to show him one of my favorite cities in the United States.

You may ask yourself if we took advantage of our free first class tickets for this and the answer is no.  There are super good airfares to NYC right now and we took advantage of that!  Sure we could have saved money, but we'd rather use the first class tickets on a longer further away vacation... somewhere that isn't cheap to get to, like NY is.
We also found a killer deal on a hotel that is across the street from Ground Zero (or maybe across 2 streets).. either way.  I've been to NYC only since the 9-11 attacks, so I've never seen the Twin Towers, but I'm very excited to go and see the 9-11 Memorial that is now open.  I tell you what - it was an eerie feeling being there after the attacks, I can only imagine what it'll be like with that memorial open.

All of this was planned on a whim.  Towards the end of the day yesterday I noticed on my Twitter feed (maybe it IS good for something) that some special promos were ending soon, so I looked and decided to price out a trip for fun.  You can ask Steve, but I do this pretty often.  For fun only, I swear.  Then we're noticing that we can do it for a good price... so I was all we can talk about it more tonight, but think about it... and I guess he did!  Last night I was all over the web looking for deals... ended up finding a good flight along with a prime location hotel... and it was booked!  I couldn't believe it... still can't.  I'm going to NEW YORK!
A word of advice: don't book a trip right before you go to bed.  You'll have a hard time falling asleep ;)

So we're going for a long weekend (Friday-Monday) in May.  Hopefully it'll be good weather!  So much to do that I've never done and so much to show Steve that he's never seen!

AHHHHHHH!!!!  So excited!

I'm so jealous! Have a great time!

At Christmas I was sorting through my old photos... found some middle school pics from 2 NYC trips I did in 1998 - 1999, with the Twin Towers in the background. It kind of took my breath away a little when I saw them.

I've been once and I was 5. I went with my mother to see her family (she's from NY) and I remember seeing downtown and being in awe. My mom and I are hoping we can go to NYC but bring my daughter along too. AND I want to see where my mom grew up in Albany and Troy. I know my Great Auntie Barb (who now lives in FL with my other family) used to live in a house in Albany, and the streets were cobblestone and she had a cherry tree. That trip is probably one of my childhood highlights. Have an AWESOME time! ;)
