A wonderful New York trip

Hello!  I feel like I have been living under a rock
When you go off blogger for several weeks, I must say it's a bit of a weird feeling.  This evening, I am looking forward to having a glass of wine and visiting all of my favourite people and their blogs!  I've missed them!

So New York was great, really great.  Though the day before we left,
we found out that all of my husband's races for the World Police & Fire Games had been cancelled due to flooding on the mountain from Hurricane Irene.  He was so disappointed, but come on, it's still New York!  So we made the best of it and had a wonderful time. 

I loved the Museum of Natural History, adored SoHo, really wanted to buy something from Bloomingdale's just so I could walk around with a 'big', 'medium', or heck even a 'small' brown bag, but never did!  Went to Century21 on the advice of many people, but quickly walked back out. With mobs and mobs of people, I wasn't ready to sort through racks of designer clothing, even if things were a screaming deal.
Had fun walking up and down Fifth Avenue and then Madison Avenue, also had the blisters to prove it.  Quick note of advice ~ don't go out and buy an expensive pair of walking shoes the day before a trip. You will get blisters, though they may be labelled 'comfortable', they are still new shoes!

Our Yankees vs the Jays game was fun, though it was incredibly hot sitting there under the beating sun.  We were definitely the only ones in the nearby vicinity who were cheering for the Jays.  Had to take out a small loan just to eat a few hamburgers and have a few drinks, but it was worth it!

Here are some snapshots of the trip ~ I have been playing around with photos on Instagram with my IPhone and these are some of them, please ignore the many different borders and filters. I'm too lazy to go back and download the original ones from my phone.

we were certainly in the heart of times square!

my heart skips a beat every time I walk into a Sephora...

couldn't resist, I'm a girl who grew up in the 80's
