No turning back now.

Last night, we purchased our plane tickets to New York.

Hotel booked and paid for. Voila ... our room.

Now, time to gather up some spending money and decide which shows we'll see.

We're definitely doing this:
And I'm leaning towards this too:

It's the simple things that make me happy. I want to eat here:
And eat this: (Lombardi's, by the way)
And, do I dare: (Remember what happened to George?)
There are tons of other things we'll do, all the touristy stuff included ... museums, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, fancy dining, shopping, ice skating, the TV shows we'll try to go to, the Christmas tree, etc.

But, the most wonderful part of this trip will occur on December 16th, 2009 at the top of the Empire State Building. My feelings are best expressed in this picture. Picture me as Sarah Jessica Parker and Beau as the guy and you've got it.
Yeah, I know we've got some working out to do. Just use your imagination.

Celebrating 15 years together and ready for 15 more. I love you, honey. Can't wait.

Sounds wonderful. I'd have to throw in Spamalot for one of the show choices.
Have a great time and congrats on 15 years!
Blessings

I just looked it up. Spamalot is on tour. Not in NYC.

Wicked is still a great choice.

we had plans to go to NY while we were on our honeymoon in pennsylvania (about an hour drive i think), but i got sick so we opted out. dang it.
i've heard wicked is amazing!! i would highly recommend it. i'm seeing it in san antonio in 3 weeks!

oh, and as far as AI tryouts: they were crazy and fun and not at all like what you see on t.v.
i have 1 year of eligibility left, so i think i'm going to try one more time when they're in dallas this season. i'll be blogging about the experience i'm sure. :)

Have a great time! It's so magical! The last show I saw in NYC was Mama Mia. It was great, but I wanted to Wicked so badly.

So, are you getting that dress too? I think you should wear something that shows those rock hard abs!

I missed Wicked when it came here. We had just seem Jersey Boys so money was tight.
I don't think it'll matter WHAT you see, you'll probably love them all.
Your room looks stunning. Did you hear they have opened up Liberty's crown again?
Oh, you'll have such a great time.
Can't wait to hear about it when you get back, yeah, I know it's a ways off but still, I'm excited for you!

STOP LEANING ALREADY! Wicked is a MUST.

Sarah@Life in the Parsonage said...

How fun! Can't wait to hear all about it...I can live vicariously through you :)

You know, I've never been to the Big Apple. Will depend on you for vicarious Broadway fun. But I don't like musicals, so nevermind.

sara said...

NYC is one of my all time favorite places. I say go for Wicked....it is amazing!! also, look up a tiny restaurant called Ray's in Little Italy....you will have the best meatballs you have ever tasted!!

Windy said...

First of all, I'm totally jealous! Now that it's out of the way...how exciting! The room is awesome (where is it?) and everything you mentioned sounds great. I hope you have the best time ever!
