I Heart NY

I'm in love.  I think about it all of the time.  I stare at pictures and escape into daydreams.

New York City, I love you!

Michael took me to NYC for our 10th wedding anniversary.  The city has been on my bucket list for, oh I don't know, ALL MY LIFE!  She did not disappoint.

Do you know what best prepped me best for NYC?  You'll never guess.  It was the cartoon, Curious George.  I think I looked at Michael each hour and said, "Just like on George!"

I think what made this trip so wonderful, besides how great the city is, was not having to stress about my kids.  Undoubtedly, I love my girls, but not having a mental checklist going through my mind all day and night was incredibly freeing!

Michael and I did Uber for the first time and loved it.  There is no way I could EVER drive in this city.  The only reason I wouldn't raise a family in NYC is because these drivers zoom by baby strollers with just inches to spare.  My goodness, it is crazy!

While we were there, we took in Times Square, Jersey Boys, a Yankee game, 9/11 Memorial, the Met, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, a Chris Tomlin concert at Madison Square Garden, and some the best food ever.
